Our grandson Andrew who is 6 -years old has been collecting legos for quite a few years.
He has always been into the tiny legos even when he was not old enough for them.
He loves the sets that make a town, police station, fire station etc. His mom and dad have bought him plenty of these through the years for him.
He would ask for them for his birthday and Christmas so the rest of us would buy them for him. Any money he earned doing jobs he spent on Legos.
Legos is by far his favorite toy because your imagination can run wild.
His lego collection was in the school room because it was a place he could go and build in peace without the disruption from his twin sisters or baby brother.Most of the time he would do this just to have a place he could leave stuff built at. Sometimes his sisters would go in there and build stuff with him.
When the barn flooded the water from the goats and chickens pen and stalls rushed into the school room ruining his Lego collection along with all the school books.
Our daughter said even with Clorox she does not feel safe trying to save the lego collection.
I had him pick out two sets and then I picked out a 3rd that will be delivered to him next Thursday. He picked out a fire rescue, a lodge and I picked out a fishing boat set.
With children, their things mean as much to them as ours does to us. He was very stressed during the storm thinking it was going to take down their house. He was so excited to see the water finally going down.
The least those of us in his family can do is replace as many as we can to help a little boys imagination be stimulated once again by Legos.
