4 (5 in Feb).

Until quite recently he was more playing with it while I put it together, but now he can follow the instructions and do most of it himself with a smaller set. The Juniors sets are really good starters.

They do. He plays with duplo still, but is much more interested in lego

I can't even remember my first lego set, but I do remember having a lot of space oriented sets back in the late 80's, early 90's, as well as a bunch of sets based around medieval times.

My son is about to turn 4. I built the set and have to "fix" it a lot. The real problem is his 2 year old brother who will destroy it and then eat it.

Yeah, but the 2 year old will get it faster than the older one did, because kids with older siblings always do, so you'll be building full sets with them in no time.

It took probably a year of me doing most of the building and having him help before he was at this point.

I don't let him play with them while the little one is awake. It would just cause fights. So he plays during nap or when the younger one goes to bed before him. It works out. We also have a nanny during the week with two small kids and they also can't be around lego pieces yet. Plus they lose shit all the time.

Signed up for a couple of Lego Make and Take events for my kid. I've never managed to get into one before they were filled up, and to get into two if pretty great.

One is for the Ninjago movie (at Toys R Us):



The other, cooler one, is Star Wars (Myer):



Both on the 30th. Can't wait! (And all free!)

I've decided to sell some of my older sets to buy the new Millennium Falcon. My old (much smaller) Millennium Falcon, my older smaller Slave I (compared with the UCS Slave I from last year), a Republic Gunship (I don't really care about it anymore), and a UCS Tie Interceptor (it was the first UCS, and not very impressive). All that should get me in striking distance.

Hey that's pretty cool Kete! You did all that without any instructions at all?
