Toy Review Tuesday: woopsie wednesday

(my auto post didn't work yesterday):
We love legos!!! Any shape and size and of course we have been collecting Duplo's for 19 years. The smaller legos for about 15!!! We have most of the star wars and buckets and buckets of misc ones from friends, garage sales, and gifts!!! I do think it is possible to have too many legos. So for pretty much every boy birthday party we give them in goody bags or put them in pinatas. For the pinata I just fill it up with as many legos as possible and when the pinata breaks the kids gather their goodies. Once they have their own pile we have a contest to see who can make the coolest thing within about 15min...they have to try to use all the misc pieces they collected!!! For goody bags I take big zip lock bags and fill them so each kid gets about the same amount...then I send them off (out of my house forever!!!) with the boys when they get picked up.
THINGS I DON'T LIKE ABOUT LEGOS:
*stepping on them in the middle of the night!!!
*trying to organize them
*little brothers and cousins who distroy very expensive and time consuming "sets"
*keeping all sets together
*having to call the lego company to ask for the "red gem" replacement
THINGS I DO LIKE ABOUT LEGOS:
*the many hours my kids spend playing with them
*the creativity that comes with building
*the way they can combine sets to build another creation
*the lego company is easy to work with

LEGO DUPLO Community People Set

THY WILL BE DONE!!! +JMJ+

I love the pinata idea. We also have way too many Legos and keep getting more.
