First, we as adults live in a hyper-connected world. We’re glued to half a dozen apps on more than one device. This fractured and frantic life-style is what drives a good portion of our day-to-day lives. We’re trying to convince ourselves this pace of interaction is what will bring about happiness.
However, it has been found that if we focus on a single task and become fully absorbed in said task, we end up with a much better sense of accomplishment. This practically describes most people’s experience when they build a complex LEGO set or Moc. And this, in turn, makes LEGO an ideal stress reliever.
The second need relates more to personal identity. Have you ever thought about why we choose what we choose to decorate our homes and work spaces? These decorations are an expression of ourselves. Therefore, that fancy pirate ship model or a highly detailed city scene allows us to do this form of self-expression. LEGO displays express the creativity of a person as well as their interests.
I’m a 53 year-old Lego Technic fan from Berlin and love to replicate famous movie scenes using Lego bricks. My wife Rose is an enormous Lego fan from Munich and when she was growing up everybody had a big bucket of Lego or knew somebody who did.
As adult fans, We are excited to see what will be heading our way in the future. Keep ya’ll updated!
