I'm normally a miserable bast as you may have gathered but this morning I bought some Lego for our 6yr old lad and some of that overpriced Playmobil stuff for the other one (4, female, going to be expensive). Well, isn't Lego fecking brill! The ultimate Father / Son experience. After a couple of ciders I was almost tearful, watching the lad pick out the pieces from the instructions. These in themselves are a work of art - sold in 3 non-indoeuropean languages and still immediatley intelligible. Bravo Lego!
