For my family, LEGO Bricks are not just a toy, it is a lifestyle. It may seem like collecting LEGO Bricks is hard to keep up with, right? But it is something that Dada, our extended family and I will gladly splurge on because we believe in its positive effect on Coco’s development, especially when it comes to the life skills that he will need in life and in the real world. Most importantly, the LEGO System in Play is a perfect way to bond as a family.
Coco can spend his whole day building with his LEGO Bricks. I actually get surprised with how creative he could get in building his vehicles and buildings. Indeed, the possibilities are endless and his imagination would always run wild when he is in the zone. The limit? When he comes to me and tells me “Mommy, we need to buy new LEGO Bricks because I can’t find a piece to put in here.” Oh no! I would tell him, “We will buy more soon, anak.” He would go back to his LEGO Bricks and continue playing and you will be amazed how he would be able to solve his huge problem earlier by finding another piece that can fit just the way he wanted.
Today, I stopped everything that I needed to do and spent a few hours playing with Coco and our favorite LEGO Bricks. We built his first LEGO Ninjago and we were amazed in its complexity and beauty and I couldn’t imagine that this little boy was able to build this by just following the directions from the manual.
