One of the best press releases I’ve read this week came from LEGO. It affirmed their commitment to open-ended sets. While it’s often their more elaborate model sets that get most of the press, the importance of providing kids with open-ended construction sets can not be underestimated.
This new blue bucket looks promising–it comes with a rainbow of LEGO bricks…and wheels (always fun). There is no right or wrong way here–just whatever you feel like building.
While some kids are more secure having a model to follow–having the freedom to create your own structures is something we should all experience. Chances are you probably have a bucket worth of LEGO bricks around the house…why not spill them out on the table and see what your family comes up with.
