Now everything comes assembled and is instant gratification…. That's a parenting fail if you do not make your kids invest their time to have something cool… Especially when it will affect how they look at fixing things throughout their lives.. « Untitled Portfolio – Playing with tones »
I have the same model somewhere in a tub somewhere. I found more satisfaction buildign it than runing it. Knowing I built it and it ran was the joy and then fixing the damages.
I guess it's product of our time when these things come pre-built. So many miss out on the real fun.
That would sum up the Lego Millennium falcon I built..
can you send one to india?
My wife recently tried to find new RC car for me to ASSEMBLE… She searched for about a month for a kit that was not "Ready To Run" before giving up and finding a different gift for my birthday. It's sad really; building the kit was always part of the fun. Plus when it came time to fix it (after the inevitable crash) you were already familiar with it inside and out.
+Chris Bertrand I think the world does not want to put anything together anymore… And in turn when people need things they cannot get already assembled they will be the first to go after the disaster that limits access to those items whatever they might be..
