In Defense of LEGO Friends


It was not how I intended things to go, it never is is it? I...
... wanted to dislike them. I didn't have pink and purple LEGOs and I had no problem playing with them. I loved them and we built whatever our imagination wanted.  In general, I feel LEGOs have gotten a little boring with everything in kits and cross marketed to certain movies or themes. What happened to the big box of bricks you created with on your own? I would have rather had a box of those rather than LEGO friends.
...but we don't have a box of those. We have boxes and boxes of LEGO Friends and Princess DUPLOs  and I think it's great. Because a toy in the box can't teach anything either.
