Hi All,
Reason for posting was reading a link on the Brickset homepage saying about the newspaper article and the video of the journalist with the technic truck and thinking he admits to enjoying it! I feel a bit too old to be posting on here but here goes.

I'm 34 years old and have a son of 5 that loves Lego. It seems to have got me hooked on it AGAIN too!
I used to have a lot of Space and Castle lego when I were a lad and also tecnic.
I got my first second wave of set on my 30th Birthday. It was the darth vader transformation set and was bought as a joke. SOOOO it's there fault! Since then I went on ebay and bout about 50 or so different mini figures from stormtroopers, boba fett, gamorrean guard, bib fortuna etc etc.....
I seem to be hooked on Harry potter at the moment and managed to buy a few expensive sets for my son 'cough cough' Trouble I'm having is he's a bit of a chewer so he is watched with eagle eyes at the moment.
I just wondered if there are many more like me out there?

    Welcome Neil! You're never too old for LEGO and at 34 you're a youngster!

    34? Youre probably about the average age on here I reckon.
    Hi and welcome to the fold
    I was into space and technic when I was young too - did you see the argos catalogue scans someone put on here this week? Brought back lots of memories for me.
    Best stock up on the potter before they stop making it - I for one am going to miss it a lot.

    I know there are older, but I'm 52... so you're never too old! Welcome to the forum youngling.

    We're all like you I think! I've starting buying City sets for my 2 year old, but its almost like an off-shoot of my own collection. I have seen a few of my own minifigs somehow make it into his LEGO Box though! I'm 32, been collecting again for about 3-4 years, this year almost out of control!
