Hello, my Name is Menachem, and I Like Legos

Hi! My name’s Menachem, and I’m married to Sarah. Together, we’re expecting our first. As Sarah explained earlier, this blog isn’t so much a list of things we need so much as it is a place to daydream about stuff we could have. So don’t take anything either of us says here too seriously, but if you have any comments to share, please do. We need all the help we can get. If you think you’ve got enough to say to write a post or two a week about your favorite baby products, send me an email and we’d love to have you on board.

I guess the baby thing I’m most looking forward to getting isn’t so much a baby thing as it is a child thing. I really can’t wait to buy my kid his first set of Legos (We still have no idea if it’s a boy or a girl, but whenever we talk it’s always “he,” because, well, “it” just sounds icky. And we’re 99% sure it’s a boy, based on no science or fact whatsoever.). Legos are awesome! How old do you have to be to start playing with Legos? I guess we could always start with Duplo or something, but it just isn’t the same. I think I have a long time to wait on this one.

I just spent a few minutes (hours) browsing the Lego website. Pretty cool! My impression had been that Legos were starting to suck, and that trend seemed to have started in the waning days of my own Lego experience as the sets got bigger and clumsier with bigger and bigger base pieces and less creativity. That does not seem to be the case any longer! Some of these Castle sets look pretty awesome! One of them’s got over a thousand pieces (Compared to old school Black Monarch’s Castle’s 650 or so), and how could anyone say no to a battery operated AT-AT Imperial Walker? I can’t wait until he’s six…
