Last week I read a comment (somewhere - who knows?) claiming that the new sets Lego sells preclude creativity. They're good for building that one thing, this person said, but nothing else.
Nope. Iain receives Lego sets. He builds the item (Y-wing fighter, train, police car, helicopter, doesn't matter). Then he rebuilds it as something else. He makes secret compartments (see below, the red box full of Lego "gems"). He makes moving, multi-function arms. He makes legs, uses wheels, and builds new "pewers."
In short, worry not about the young. No set produced by Lego can repress the impulse to customize in little kids.
