My nephew is really into Legos (as many 10 y.o. boys are) and I've always had the attitude that "they were better in my day". Yeah, I know that makes me sound old.
I had always thought that it was better to get a bunch of bricks and parts and be creative in what you made as opposed to making a kit from something that was pre-designed. I thought the new Legos took all the creative aspect out of the process so they couldn't be much good.
Maybe I'm wrong.
(I have to get used to saying that!)
