We are a LEGO family. We often give LEGO sets to our kids as gifts and building LEGO bricks into anything we can think up is a common family activity. Before I met my husband, I hadn't been much interested in LEGO building. But the first time we sat down with our young children and a giant box of miscellaneous bricks, I fell in love. For many years I've been content to build free-form with our collection, creating strange looking vehicles, spaceships, buildings. But I've never owned my own set.
I had often looked at the sets in the store and tried to find one that I might want, but nothing ever seemed to grab me. But one day, I don't know exactly what did it, I got a hankering to get my first LEGO set and nothing would get in my way. My husband and I visited three stores before I found a set that I wanted. I would not settle for just anything. At the third store, I saw the new Dino line released this year. The vehicles in this line have a rugged, fun look to them. I loved the size of the tires - an often needed part for our building.
So I bought my first set of LEGO this year
Now it's just a fight to keep my kids from absconding with my super jungle jeep and triceratops.
