i love it! and i'll cry a river in this last episode of Sherlock! T_T

I know - I love it too!

I wish I could watch Sherlock with you!

I love Lego! Best toy in the world. And themed sets or not, clever fans have put it to their own purpose for years... :-)

I know it is completely silly, but I just love the photo. I had to have it on here!

"I love Lego!".
Remind me again, how old are you?! :)

Lego is the toy I never grew out of. If Lego brought out some SH themed sets, I'd probably buy them :-)) To be fair, it's not so very long since the house was full of my son's Star Wars and Harry Potter Lego creations. We've still got boxes and boxes of the stuff lurking in cupboards. I'm keeping it for my grandchildren. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it!)

I like your story although I don't buy a word of it! I now have a picture of you in my mind playing with Star Wars Lego Sets!

Do you have C3PO, and R2D2, and Darth Vader?

Oh yes, we have all those characters that you mention and more. But to be honest, Star Wars was never my favourite. I would be more likely to want to build Hogwarts. :-))

I am not a Harry Potter fan!


I know that you are not, and probably if I had not been a parent I would not be either! But my kids are the Potter generation. They were the perfect age to grow up with it, and as a family we all love it as a result. It was an amazing experience that we shared – eagerly awaiting the next book or film, and yes, playing with the Lego. It made their childhood magical and made being a mum much more fun. :-)

Harry Potter over Star Wars? Does not compute!

But I understand re your children being of the Potter generation, and the whole family sharing the experience together. As you know, I don't have children, my nephews are post Potter, and so the same rationale does not apply.

I have not read the Potter books or seen the Potter films, even though Ralph is in them. I was given the audiobook of the first book and that was more than enough for me. I much prefer C S Lewis and Narnia, and Philip Pullman and His Dark Materials. For my money, both those series are way better than Potter. I am trying to get my nephews into Narnia and His Dark Materials.
