All the grandloves have many sets of Legos - whether or not specific assembly of those sets is still a practical consideration. I have personally supplied my fair share of bricks to each of them. But the ones they use around this Granma's house come totally without instruction. They are built with imagination only - and a fair share of, "Granma can you find a piece that is 1x4, white and skinny." These highly technical descriptions sometimes leave me guessing as to their meaning, and sometimes "white" means blue or green or grey or any other color that matches the less flexible and more desirable block configuration.

The latest round of newly discovered Lego fun, though, might be the best yet. Enter the Meeper Bot 2.0. Those are not just ordinary wheels - they are Apple charged! Using an app on the phone and connected through Blue-tooth, that baby can scoot! Grandboys love it, dogs fear it, Granma sneaks down to play with it after the minis leave! Yes, the sticker shock is just that - shocking. Yes, you should keep a supply of 9V batteries handy. And yes, the axles break when dropped (though it comes with replacements). But in the end, it's worth every dime, every volt, and every axle repair.
Just a suggestion, but I take my Granma points where I can get them, and sometimes plastic is just the ticket - 9V and/or imagination powered. Just watch your step after play. Remember, lonely Legos bite...
