Yes. Link below is to a slightly-famous post for AFOLs, it should be stickied on Eurobricks IMHO
Traumatic events in the life of a Lego fan http://news.lugnet.c...eneral/?n=43860
Couple other things.
1. The new fire and police sets look great. My two kids will love them (both boys). The older one really likes sets with stories in them, so adding cats, trees, burning buildings etc will go down really well. For example, the forest hideaway set has two cars, a trike, a hiding place, postbox and a bear.
So he loves this. He really
doesn't care that the building is small, has walls missing on two sides or isn't a hard build. Same will apply to the new sets this year.
2. But really, yet more fire and police stuff? I just bought a load this year. Across the age of both kids, there are about another 10 years when they'll be interested in City sets. How many fire engines will be in our lego cupboard? I'm talking as a parent making a buying decision about toys for children, not as a slightly retentive, slightly obsessive AFOL.
3. So for kids, where's the small, vehicle-sized mobile crane (older kid loves cranes)? Where's the post office set + post van set, and postman on bike set (he loves posting tiles into the postboxes in the forest sets)? Where's the updated version of light and sound (when I was 9, everybody wanted those sets)?
4. Mining has gone down well in our house, finding things trapped inside the rocks is very popular; next up, logging?
