My grandson got Lego by the ton, but it's becoming difficult to buy Lego just as building blocks. It comes as towns, starships, pirate ships and goodness knows what else. All very fine, but the whole idea of construction toys is to build your own pirate ship etc.
Grandson mixes and matches, so his pirate ship is likely to have a ray gun or two and a tame dragon.
He's getting a baby G-shock watch this Christmas. It has a stopwatch function, among others, so he can time his running.
