Hunter is the Lego master. He started his fascination at four years old when a neighbor gave him a starter box of Legos for his birthday. His interest has only grown over the years and I often catch him upstairs in a sea of Legos from building and sorting. He doesn’t often keep his sets put together, instead, he breaks them down and rebuilds something new. It’s impressive to watch him manipulate the bricks into something his mind imagined without any clear instructions. He’s a builder.
We went to the Lego store this weekend and his eyes lit up with wonder when he saw the Lego robots. Mind blown. Two of his favorite things, Legos and coding, in one fancy toy. My eyes did not light up when I saw the $350 price tag. However, the kind associate was able to point us to a newer version of the Lego robots, Lego Boost, at a more affordable $160 price tag. Hunter has visions of robots in his future. I have visions of him mowing a lot of lawns. 🙂
