We are living in the middle of a Lego craze right now. A serious Lego craze.
It all started last August when I went to Minnesota for a little vacation with the boys. We went to Lego Land at Mall of America and the boys had a blast. I called Jim and said “The time has come. You can go buy some big boy Legos.”
There was silence on the other end of the phone. Silence mainly because he was too busy doing a happy dance to respond.
We arrived back in Atlanta a week later to several new sets of big boy Legos. The boys were thrilled. And by boys I am including Jim too.
Ryan’s birthday came and we received more Legos. Christmas came and we received even more Legos.
After Christmas sales came and we purchased even more Legos.
Then Jim came home from work one day and had purchased a boat load more Legos from a co-worker whose kids had outgrown them.
I’m drowning in Legos. They are everywhere. Every time I step I scream “ouch” because those darn Lego pieces are sharp and uncomfortable as they dig into your feet.
I have vacuumed up several pieces. But shhh…. don’t tell anyone. The boys would be upset if they knew. And yes, I’m including Jim in this too.
They are everywhere.
When I would complain to friends about the mess they would laugh as if I was kidding. Does this look like I’m kidding?!
See. I’m not kidding. Not even a little teeny tiny bit. We have Legos everywhere. And this is only one room of our house. We have several others that look very similar to this.
Well, that is until last weekend. I couldn’t take it anymore.
Off to Target I went and several hours later the room looked like this.
Aaaaahhhhh….. I can breathe again. Oh, and walk.
But now what am I supposed to do with all of our old Duplo Legos? How do I determine a fair price for selling them? There is a fire station set, police station, some Toy Story sets, Disney Car sets, a school bus, a firetruck, construction trucks, a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse set and several of the buckets of blocks. Do I list them on ebay? Craigslist? And for what price?
Any suggestions on how to get rid of the Duplos so we have more room for the big boy Legos in this house?
