The Christmas assembly thread got me thinking about Lego.
How do you see Lego? Do you see it as a toy that your child puts together and then plays with? Or do you see it as something you put together for your child to play with?
I know it depends on age, but I always just thought that you don't give kids Lego until they can do it themselves with minimal parental input and that was part of the attraction for them (and the parents). BUT, then I've come across quite a few people that put their kids Lego fully together for them, or do at least 50% of the work. I'm not sure if it's cause their kids find the Lego hard (maybe it's meant for 'older' kids - eg. a 6yo doing a kit for 7 - 12 yo's), or maybe it's just cause the parents love Lego a lot too .
