I can still remember a Christmas back in the 1970's when my brother received his first set of LEGO®. We spent many wonderful hours sitting on the floor, letting our imaginations direct our creations. Fast forward to the 90's when we gave our oldest son his first set. It became a passion of his and about the only thing he ever played with. He still loves anything LEGO® and he is an adult now. He has a giant tub of these amazing building blocks from his childhood and he has now introduced the joy he found in creating with them to his son.
