That period in a LEGO fan’s life when he or she sets aside LEGO in favor of school, dating, motor vehicles, and other non-LEGO pursuits.source
I'm 31. Probably about 3-4 years ago, my wife and I were watching our nephew when he discovered my bin of Lego, which I probably hadn't touched since I was 13 or 14. He found the instructions for the Caribbean Clipper (6274
) and asked me to build it. He got bored after probably 10-15 minutes but I finished it after he left. Some short time later my wife caught me lusting after Darth Vader's TIE Fighter (8017
) when were shopping and suggested I just buy it. I warned her, there's no turning back if I buy this. There wasn't. Even worse, she's been baptised in the Chruch of Lego and pines after the Modular Buildings and Architecture sets.
My son will be 2 in July and its taken every ounce of will power to keep him from the smaller bricks. He's been getting some cool Duplo sets in the meantime.
