Surprisingly, despite their knack for high-tech toys and video game designing, my boys are old school when it comes to Lego. They would rather play Lego in its original tactile form. They love hunting for the right piece in that huge mound of bricks. They love the feel of snapping the tiny blocks together. They love the long time ti takes to build something great. They love the mess! And they would rather admire, move, and play with their final masterpiece with their own bare hands.
And for my boys --and I bet for a bunch of other kids-- that also applies to Lego.
