If you’re a parent, I find you’re in one of three camps. Loved lego as a child but a) your children aren’t old enough yet b) you can’t bear the thought of all those BITS c) you’ve been ‘got’, and can wince in sympathetic agony if someone whipers “lego knee” at you.
But I have never met anyone who doesn’t like Lego. I mean really – what’s not to like? It’s universally adored for all sorts of reasons (except maybe the price of the new sets… but that’s what Grandparents are for, and 2nd hand lego is JUST as good, yes?).
But did you know that your child can be a member of the Lego club, and receive the magazine – totally for free? It’s brilliant – not just packed with adverts to help your child build an unattainable wish list. It’s full of stories, quizzes, Building tips, pictures from other modellers, sneak peeks and behind-the-scenes news – it’s honestly a fab read (I have been known to sneak a read myself – I love the interviews with ‘real’ lego Masters, I somehow imagine them all to be secret squirrels in funny hats…)
Andthere’s even two versions, the usual one (click the green banner on the right) and the Junior version for under sixes (image on the left). It says for under sixes, but actually my tender-natured practically-8-yr-old is far happier with the Junior version still.
And no, Lego doesn’t pay us for advertising. We just love these, and know you will too. Or more importantly, you’ll gain yourself a free 15 minutes with a hot mug of tea and Google Reader whilst your child loves the magazine for you.
