What Today’s Legos Tell Us About Childhood
This Instagram reel sums up what many people have shared with us over the years: As go Legos, so goes childhood.

Hey, we bought our (giant) share of Bionicles and our kids LOVED them. But then the finished products stood sentry on the shelf, never deconstructed to the atomic level, in order to be built anew.
Curious to hear: What has been your Lego experience?
And if you’re thinking: Gee, I’d like my kids to do more free play — unstructured, kid-led– consider starting a Play Club, or asking your school to start one!
