A local father to a boy who used to go to the same school as my daughter dropped me a message on Facebook asking if my boys liked Legos. Of course my reply was, “yes they do!”. Later that day, to my surprise, the local friend dropped off this gigantic tote of Legos. I honestly am amazed at how many kind, thoughtful families there are in my town. This particular man and his wife are absolutely sweet, they both are friends with me on Facebook and I admire them lots! I am now eternally grateful to them because dropping these Legos off meant more than just items for us!

I honestly had to pick my jaw up off of the ground when he arrived to hand me this huge tote of Legos. This is a lot of Legos. These were dropped off on a weekend when no kids were here, I couldn’t wait for Monday after school to arrive so that my three children could see the amount of Legos we received.

I knew that my boys would be over the moon happy but what I didn’t realize is how happy my daughter would be. We have quite a few Lego sets around here but none that are geared towards girls, all themes are Star Wars or other Shark Type themes for the boys. It seems very few times does anyone think to buy Girl Theme Legos, but see I didn’t realize up until this past Christmas Season that my daughter even wanted Girl Lego Themed Items. Well, girl theme or not, apparently having this gigantic bucket of Lego’s made her day too!

All three of my kids have never, ever played so nicely … okay except the times they are playing the MineCraft Demo on PS3. This is more than just a video game though, Legos have brought my children together to use their imagination and creativity in a way that no video game can compare to.

Nothing makes me smile more than watching my three children work together to play Ninja games with the Legos we received. I am so happy that we received such a kind gift because it really has brought our whole household together for fun days and evenings. Thank you to the Family who gave us this Lego supply, we appreciate you!

    Seriously, that’s like hundreds of dollars worth of Legos (I know because we have a Lego lover in the house too). :)

    Very sweet of your neighbor. I’m glad all of your kids liked it. :)

    I played legos for hours and hours on end as a kind. My younger brother had a million legos!

    OHHHH my god! I can’t believe that huge bin is what he dropped off! That is an insane amount of Legos! I bought one of these separator tools for $2 on eBay. If you don’t have one you have to get one!

    You have a huge selection of Lego’s – it is amazing how long the kids can play with Lego’s! HOURS!

    There is something very special about legos. They are the ONE tony that is truly timeless and can be enjoyed by children and adults. I just bought my daughter a lego table for Christmas and she has played with NOTHING else since!

    Lego is so much fun! My brother and I used to argue all the time when we were little, but we’d actually play together just fine when building our lego towns :)

    Oh my gosh, that is a lot of LEGOS! You’re so right, my son and his friends are always so quiet when they play.

    Wow! That is so many Legos. My five-year old is currently obsessed with Legos and would absolutely flip out if he received that many Legos. How kind and thoughtful of the gentleman to give you those. We’re heading to LegoFest next weekend and are SO excited!

    Legos are amazing! I had such a good time playing with my sister when we were kids. I’ve always felt sad that my son doesn’t like legos.

    So…many…legos! My son is just now learning to play with the jumbo ones. He loves them.

    You’ve got to be a proud Momma!! Legos are having a comeback in our household – especially with my grandchildren. I love how they can play and learn and at the same time.

    So lucky…that’s A LOT of Legos! We love Legos here too and I know how pricey they are. Your boys will have lots of fun with their new collection!

    We don’t have kids, but my husband and I still go look at the lego aisle! Lol. I even told him he could start buying lego sets for the future if he wanted!

    What a sweet gesture. It’s awesome that it brought the kids together without fighting!

    It’s great to see kids enjoying the growing interest in LEGOs. It’s a terrific way to learn eye hand ordination and more.

    What a nice guy!! Legos are an awesome toy that my kids love too; I love that it’s not electronics and still keeps them busy for hours! My boys are playing with their Legos as I type this. :)
