It doesn't seem that long ago that I had to build all of the Lego kits that Billy received - it used to drive me nuts! Now he can follow the instructions with no problems or make up his own creations - I'm only required to help find the bits :)
Lego forms a big part of Billy's day lately. He only has a few kits, but they get transformed into some amazing things. We have one corner of the room that doesn't get through traffic, so he's allowed to keep it spread out much of the time. I do object if it starts to encroach into my walkway though - that stuff hurts when you stand on it!!
Billy goes back and forth from it throughout the day. Sometimes building. Sometimes making up elaborate stories and adventures with the things he's built.
Its a wonderful toy. It improves spatial ability, perseverance, engineering skills and inspires creativity. It lasts for generations! I just wish it wasn't so expensive to buy..
