Is The Buying of "LEGOS" an Investment or Loss?

Updated on June 10, 2014

When my children were small, my sister gave my eldest a box of LEGOs. I am a protective mother, but in those times I was like a hen protecting her chicks. I will always remember when one of the little yellow heads of the LEGO sets was missing...after I cleaned his diaper checking that everything was alright, like no blood, good color and good odor (yes, a bit neurotic); lost and found, the smiling yellow face was swallowed and out it went. Then my son grew discovering the fun of LEGOs as I walked barefoot up and down the hall to get laundry, dishes, meals, and all the housewife work done before going to work; stepping on those little colorful plastic bricks wasn't fun either. My children learned with them but they were not so fanatic as other children are.

People will always try to live other's lives, and they will always think that their family is the best. I think that everyone of us in one way or the other have wasted or is wasting money. Who do we think we are to judge or interfere in people's affairs, as in the use of their own money, rather than the money each one of us earn and spend. All of us could be concerned in the way others don't have the skills to manage money and it could seem a waste, but at the end, it is their life and everyone of us deserve respect toward our choices.

LEGOs are:

I want to make a defense toward an issue: "Is the buying of LEGOs (those little colorful plastic bricks that they interlock) an investment or loss? " An investment for some people as they gain:

  • ability to manipulate mini-figures.
  • learning about engineering as they assemble and connect in a creative way the LEGO bricks.
  • learning in construction using diverse gears and other pieces representing mechanical ways.
  • creativity in the production of movies, action figures, games, scale models, and other objects.
  • enabling their mind faculties of thinking, reasoning, decision making, judging and all the complex intellectual processes.of our consciousness.
  • development of time management
  • organizational skills
  • language and communication skills

An investment for some people as they gain a family unity and dignity for their family values. They have their children in their sight, and not dealing with drugs or having street problems. They are teaching what are the consequences of spending money. They are trying to live their life in their own happiness without disturbing other's lives.

We will always criticize, even talk behind people's backs, but just because we practice such things by our human nature does not mean we should keep doing so. Let's follow God's word:

Leviticus 19:16 "'Do not go about spreading slander among your people. "'Do not do anything that endangers your neighbor's life. I am the LORD."

Proverbs 13:3 "He who guards his lips guards his life, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin."

I recommend LEGO as educational, fun and not as a loss, but an investment.

Blessings to all!!

      I spent many fond wonderful childhood moments building, rebuilding and fantasizing with my friends while we immersed ourselves in Lego's. I put my vote in for how great I think they are. Wonderful hub with a fantastic addition of Gods loving words.

      It is a great hub and I do hope people all realize that there are many,many worse things than LEGOs in this world.

      Good job honey.
