LEGO® Not Just For Kids
In this article, we explore LEGO® as not just a past time for children but as a really great activity for adults to stimulate their creativity and de-stress from their busy lives.
Not Just for Kid’s
Many people think that LEGO® is a kids activity, and for those people, they could not be more wrong! LEGO has endured as a popular toy for adults and children for decades and for more reasons than just its a great kids toy. LEGO® offers many great other benefits that adults can also enjoy. Boosting your mood, developing creative thinking, de-stressing and focusing the mind are all great benefits of LEGO® Play. Many famous individuals have been well known for the propensity to enjoy LEGO® products in their spare time. Including individuals such Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the well-known creators of south Park who use it to refocus and generate ideas for their show, Terry Crews famous actor in shows such as “Brooklyn 99” and “everybody hates Chris” Brittany Spears and even Hamish Blake just to name a few more.
LEGO® is great for mental health and well-being, which is why we see a surprisingly large number of very successful people using it to improve their lives. Other real benefits of LEGO® play include Trust building which can be done when building with others, increasing overall happiness levels and improving cognitive functions and dexterity. You might be an adult with “adult problems” such as paying the rent, keeping the family together or managing your health, but that doesn’t mean LEGO® can’t be a healthy part of your life.
It doesn't take a lot of LEGO® to get started
"In fact, did you know with only 6 2x4 bricks you can make a possible 915 MILLION combinations of LEGO® creations!"
Here at Bricktastics, we offer LEGO® Creativity packs with over 850 pieces in them, So imagine what you could do with that!
It doesn’t even matter what you build or how perfect it looks, as a wise person once said: “it’s not the destinations that matters, its the journey” or in this case the building process. The Joy and discovery that comes from a build is often more rewarding than the end result. This is why you will see children often destroy their creations just moments after they have finished building it, those little guys know the fun is in the creative process not the end result, (bet that makes all we collectors out there look pretty silly) haha.
I am always amazed by what our customers create with our LEGO®, this 12 year old made a whale emerging out of the pacific ocean garbage patch!
Now that’s one awesome drive-in theatre!
