This post isn’t sponsored. I did receive an awesome LEGO Set at the Mom 2.0 Summit that I attended a little over a week ago, but writing a post wasn’t a requirement to receive them. LEGO is just that cool.
I am writing this today because when I think about what LEGO means and what it stands for, family is one of the first things that comes to mind and what is more important than family on Mother’s Day? Seriously, LEGO is a family tradition. In my house, LEGO is a common ground. Hubby and I played with them when we were kids (okay, maybe as adults too), my kids love creating with LEGO, and I’m sure their kids will too. How cool is it that a “toy” can still be an ice breaker or a relationship helper through the generations.
When new kiddos of friends or family come over, they’re always willing to play with LEGO so strangers no more. Maybe my teen son and I have a spat…LEGO is a great activity to make-up over. When my toddler daugher wants to play with Duplo and her big brother helps her build, that’s a bonding moment between siblings that no other toy or activity can provide. And they’re not just for playing…not even close. LEGO is a creative outlet whether you’re 3 or 33, its fun, its a memory maker…LEGO is family.
Some people may think I’m a bit of a weirdo for feeling so strongly about little pieces of plastic, but if you think about it, there aren’t that many things in life that everyone in the family, no matter their age, can get excited about collecting, creating, and sharing. I think if you ask around, you’ll find that a lot of people would actually say they agree and LEGO is much more than just a toy – it’s a memory maker.
Are you a LEGO family? What activities bring your family together time after time? Let me know in the comments below and thanks for reading!
