5.0 out of 5 stars My son loves it., February 27, 2012
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Like many 5 year olds, my son is obsessed with Legos. He has built virtually every Hero Factory guy and stages endless battles and adventures for them. With duplos, he has built all manner of spaceships and fortresses and yeah, guns, and this Christmas he got the Lego Star Wars catalogue I mean Visual Dictionary, which is creating a huge problem for our annual lego budget.

We won an auction at his school which included eight different Lego sets, including this treehouse. At first he wanted to give it to his best girl friend for her birthday, but after looking at it for awhile, he decided he wanted to build it. Why not? he asked. I like treehouses, and I like flowers (he is a gardener like his father), and I like building things.

I hear a stuff coming out of his mouth sometimes which alarms my feminist heart (boys are like this, girls are like that), and I was one of those parents who was offended at the idea of Lego for Girls (it reminded me of the brilliant Chess for Girls SNL skit).

But this morning walking to school, he told me what a great toy it was, and it wasn't just for girls, but for girls AND boys, and he doesn't care what anyone thinks.

So thanks, Lego, for teaching my son and important lesson about gender equity.

My son loves these sets too - more his style vs. the more "violent" themes in "boy" sets. Also, his favorite color is purple!
