Hours and Hours of Fun, According to My Nephew
on August 5, 2012
I got this Lego Racers Watch for my nephew, and he has thoroughly enjoyed tinkering with the parts of this watch. I guess tinkering is the appropriate word since it has a lot of Lego structuring pieces.
I was over at my nephew's house a few weeks ago and I thought I would let him show me all the tricks of working with this Lego watch. He was more than happy to oblige. The first thing he showed me was the box (I am surprised he kept it this long), but he pointed out that this watch was water resistant to 65 feet (that is 50 meters in typical watch jargon). This was the summer and exclaimed to me that he could wear it in the pool. He thought that was very cool - and it is cool. He still had all the parts together, and in addition to the basic watch assembly, he showed me that the set had an additional 18 pieces that he could use to personalize the watch. He particularly liked the piece that he could place over the watch face to give it a black "look," however; he could not get that particular piece to snap on while I was at his house. There were all kinds of other parts, including wheels (for what use, I cannot imagine).
I asked him if I could fiddle with it for a few minutes, he said sure - but do not break it, or you will be sorry. I started to remind him I bought it for him, but I thought that would be very small on my part. Anyway, I could certainly tell I grew up in the pre-Lego generation, because I could not get anything to work. The only pieces I recognized, other than the watch, were 2 regular building blocks, for what purpose I do not know. I finally yelled help, and he came to my rescue. He showed me how everything works, but I do not think I could replicate any of the steps he had just taken. I learned a lot that afternoon.
I am glad I got this Lego watch for him - it is so hard to buy for kids his age, unless I buy an expensive electronic gadget, and that, I refuse to do; mainly because I cannot afford them.
