My daughter is Five and has recently started getting those Lego Castles/princess type sets. They are quite difficult especially for a 5 year old so I have built most of them with her help but I really enjoy it. Wouldn't mind doing so big warship or something more adult based. We any Lego fans on here?

In the same boat. So far put together a Frozen castle and the Rapunzel one too. Think I had the more enjoyable time as I'm not sure how kids are meant to play with it once finished. They are like display models for your 80s cabinet or sideboard.

 

I did have my eye on the Lego Architecture set but its near £200 and all white which I find a bit racist.

My nephew is into the technical Lego. I helped him build a truck with a crane thing on the back. Big thing once finished. It was fun to help but not something I can see myself doing.

Got given a Lego Snow Speeder in the Secret Santa thing, I think because I have taken part in Star Wars conversation leading up to the new film coming out. What they didn't know was that getting Lego for Christmas was a much bigger nostalgia rush for me, shaking the box, hearing that clatter, putting it together (over the course of a couple of conference calls in this case). Ace. Huge part of my childhood.

 

Lego based on other intellectual properties can, generally, get to fuck though. Pirates or Robin Hood or get out.

 

Probably got about 20 of this fucker:

You're gonna need a bigger boat.

The best thing about Lego was canibalising it and making your own stuff. I built a fort once and staffed it with Batman, Robocop, and a squad of plastic American soldiers from the market. Formidable.

I have huge boxes and tubs of it in the loft from when the kids were young.  I'm keeping it as a present to myself when the Alzheimer's kicks in.

 

Ah, but how will you remember you put it up there, then?

 

Ditto. We have boxes and boxes of the stuff in the loft, that includes some stuff from when I was a kid. The sets were fine but as others have said after having painstakingly made them it was difficult to break them up again. The best fun was making your own things

That's the problem. I don't mind making them but don't fancy using them as a showpiece!

    • Nothing to see here ....      
    • Gini Wijnaldum has attracted further interest on the continent with Paris Saint Germain and Inter Milan reportedly very keen on signing the midfielder.   It is common knowledge that the Dutchman’s current contract expires in June, but to this point there has been no movement on a new deal leading to strong speculation that the very popular figure will be departing come the end of this campaign.   The most recent comment by either party came last month with Wijnaldum rather blunt about how things stand.   "There is no update yet. I also think I’m not the one who should give the update.   "The club should do that. So if there is an update, the club will give it."     The 30 year-old came very close to departing in the past off-season as new Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman had identified his countryman as a key part of his rebuilding plan, however Jurgen Klopp was able to hang to a key member of his squad.   And it is a good thing too as Wijnaldum has been at his consistent best and his durability has been a godsend for the manager in a squad wrecked by significant injuries.   He has made 37 appearances in all competitions and is set to lead the team in Jordan Henderson’s absence.   The Mirror ( via French publication Le Parisien) reports that  PSG have made it known that they are particularly interested in landing Wijnaldum on a free transfer while Inter Milan are monitoring the situation.   It is clear that if the Dutchman does depart Liverpool after five seasons and over 200 appearances, he will leave a sizable hole in the Liverpool midfield as well as his general impact in and around the squad.

    • Surprised the Brazilian PM didn't get involved to be honest. He's a massive twat and was fully expecting to make differenent rules for the National keeper. 
    • Still no official word on his injury after a week.  That makes me nervous.
