I'm convinced. I know that seems like a rash statement, but it's oh so true. In our house, both of my big boys L-O-V-E Legos. It started back when they came out with an Indiana Jones set. Silas had to have it. Santa brought it for Christmas that year and that sucker lasted all of 5 days before the pieces were scattered all over the place. Never to be assembled in one playable piece again. Then, #2 got in on the LEGO craze with a ginormous plane set. But Santa was wise to the evil Lego manufacturers now. She bought super glue to go with the jumbo jet made from over 300 minuscule pieces. I mean, what kid really wants to take the thing apart to play with it? NONE! They want it all put together and to stay that way, not to have to search under beds to find the wing (a pretty big necessity for a plane!).
The Lego elves that come in the middle of the night to disassemble several hours worth of work would be NO match to the glorious wonders of super glue. NO MATCH! But alas, even the trusty super glue only held up for a bold 12 days. sigh Why do these Lego people do this to us? WHY?
Coming right in time for Christmas this year ... LEGO Harry Potter. Why Lord? I ask you why?
