My kids have the Lego train set that runs on battery pack. I could play with it for hours, if it were still setup in the basement of the old house in Langley. Burnaby house - no basement.

RS Lego mini meet at someone's house............. anyone? I'll bring pizza and munchees.

I think Lego has fallen out of favour with today's youth compared to when we were young. I went in to the one in Bellevue, and I felt like a kid again

I have a feeling those kids who use iPads over Lego are not gonna have a grasp of fixing or building things when they're older. They'll know how to un-freeze an iPod, but probably will crawl into the fetal position when they have to build a table or change a tire.

I don't remember them being that expensive back in my day, yet I'll ask my mom. The Stars Wars lego sets are stupid expensive.

The majority of my 30yo friends that are like that today.

Its cause we're children of the 80s, when our parents made money hand over fist and just bought us stuff rather than show us how to do things.

Yeah, I see that all the time. I take value out of the fact that my family was old school. We were never without anything, and some of our neighbors had less but we certainly weren't "rich" by any means. We had a nice house, but it was a result of one project at a time. My father built a show car in the garage, but it took him 5 years to do it. He'd rebuild engines for fishermen to make money to do the next thing for the car and instead of ordering up everything through a catalog, it was build it the old school way. My favorite was seeing the ads for Mustang II front ends in Hot Rod Magazine. It was all shiny and pretty and new.

"Hey Dad, why don't you just buy one of these, it looks awesome!"

"Yeah, you know where else they carry the Mustang II front ends? The ford Pinto at the junk yard. You coming?"

Hell vegetables came from the garden, and beef came from the large angry cow in the field. Truck came and took cow. Truck came back with beef. I remember having to help clean turkeys when I was 12. That one is christmas dinner.

Dino is into watching Little House on the Prairie these days. For her, its a different world. For me, its what summer used to be. Once I was old enough to have my own animals, it was all me. I had all the birds.

It was a lot of work, compared to going to save-on, but so rewarding as well. I started having them sit on eggs, and watching as this tiny creature pecks its way through the egg-well, there is nothing quite like it. The day that something that could have been an omelette is walking behind its mother is amazing.

I think the children now, are going to grow up to be some of the most creative people, by virtue that they have had a world's supply of information, knowledge and some of the best tools in their hands from birth, and yet some of the most disconnected from the human race.

Be interesting to see.

Man I never realized Lego's were so expensive when I was growing up. I think my favourite ever birthday present growing up was this, I imagine it was about $120 to $150 when my parents got it for me. I still display it proudly on the shelf of my new apartment:

I don't have any Lego sets anymore and I regret giving them away when I was in HS. The only thing I have now is the Empire State Building.



This is definitely making me feel like a kid again and I'm excited to buy some stuff. I also found myself recently always debating on buying a box of hockey cards when I walk by them. Oh how I miss being young.

I had the Technic Car 8860. Old skool. I remember saving up my allowance for it ($80). Working steering, rear suspension, manual gear box, rear differential, etc. Heck it even had adjustable seats.

If you're not buying a gift for kid/teen, would any of you go with the intent of getting something for yourself?

I'm just curious in a business point of view.
LEGO retail stores have been around since the early 2000s, but mostly in the US and Europe. They do a lot of market research in determining where to open their stores, and only opened their first Canadian store in Calgary in the summer of 2010. Since then, two more were opened in Toronto, and now one finally in vancouver.

I dunno about weekdays, but the one in Bellevue, WA is jam packed during the weekends!

And look at all the people in this thread alone who have said they will visit the Oakridge store for sure! Also, don't underestimate the number of adults who are into LEGO.

Unfortunately, the LEGOLAND theme parks are geared for kids... you might appreciate the Miniland section (where the model builders recreate entire cities), but you won't enjoy the rides. So the price of admission won't be worth it.

You can however ask for a shopper's pass, which allows you to spend 1 hour in their store. As long as you exit within 1 hour, they won't charge you admission, and if you spend $20 you will get your parking reimbursed. But nothing stops you from visiting other parts of the park in that 60 minutes...
