When adults play with Lego

I don’t know what my obsession is with lego. I seem to blog about it a lot. I blogged about it here, and here.
I’m weirding myself out.
I don’t remember ever having lego as a child. We were five sisters (my brother was much older) and so we didn’t have toys like lego, as far as I recall.
My only other recollections of lego are playing with it as an adult, and standing on it as an adult. If you stand on a piece barefoot, it hurts like a bitch. And if you swear out loud it makes you feel only slightly better.
So why the obsession? Who knows? If you bump into Freud ask him, but otherwise I’m happy to go with it.
Check out this guy, Christoph Niemann.
He spends a fair amount of time tripping over lego in his son’s room. And he re-imagines the stray pieces. Kind of cool, I think.

Makes me want to play.

    Brilliant. Lego is not only a toy, but a powerful way to make jokes!

    27 years old this year played with lego for hours as a child and adding my adult problem solving skills seems to make any models i make these days seem so much better, i have a 2 year old and have bearly harnessed the feeling of excitement of sitting down to build something with him in a few years time…

    Hey anonymous, Hey, I was at a party this weekend with lots of adults and kids, one of the mums brought along a huge box of lego, turned around at one point and all the kida were on the floor engrossed, and so was one of the adult men at the party, busy building something, tongue poked out of mouth in concentration. Hilarious!
