This is starting to sound like the script to the Lego movie....;)

Hey, I did already mention Lord Business – and I do feel a bit shitty saying "no, you can't play with all of daddy's Lego". But then she's 4, she has a massive box of her own Lego. Also, I bought a ton of 1980s Lego on eBay for nostalgic purposes, but almost all of that's gone to the nipper (and been lost in her box o' Lego bits).

Glad I'm not the only one who thought that (though I couldn't remember Lord Business's name, so that reference skipped past me).

It's entirely true that there's Lego and there's lego. That big millennium falcon is most certainly not for kids, its non-functional as a toy, but, then there is the smaller version that is a great solid toy. They have certainly broadened the range to appeal to a wider audience.

One of my favourite vehicles from Star Wars is the Sandcrawler (not an obvious choice, I know) and I've looked at previous Lego Sandcrawlers.  This Christmas I bought myself the latest version - it's about half the size of previous ones they've done but think it's probably the best one released to date (though if only it had proper see-through windows).
