I have been lurking here for a couple of months. I was going to wait to register until I bought my first lego set all my very own, but decided I need help in choosing it. (I see there is a thread for that elsewhere)
I am a new FAFOL. I never had any lego of my own as a kid (late 70's/80's). My big brother had all the lego in our home. Since he had so much no one saw any reason to buy me any (since I am a girl) But he didn't share very well and I never had the opportunity to just build. I remember wishing there was lego for girls. Finally 30-some years later my dream has come true, just in time for my almost 5 and almost 3 y/o daughters to fall in love with lego.
We have had regular duplo for years, but it wasn't untill my girls got the duplo bunny and cakes sets for this past Christmas that they really started playing with them. When my oldest saw the new Lego Friends she adored them, and has been playing with lego every day since she bought Stephanie's outdoor bakery.
I dug out my husbands old lego (Exxon Station and Universal 733), and we got a few more smaller friends sets. I have started building vignettes and small rooms. It is so fun to have something that I enjoy to play with my girls. (and to play with by myself after they go to bed )
Your forums seem like a lot of fun with tons of info. You have some fabulous moc's here and I really enjoy the thorough reviews.
BTW my real name is Debbie, but I chose "daisy" after the lego friends bunny my daughter got in a set for Easter. It represents the bunny duplos that peaked my girls' interest as well. I also happened to be born on Easter and rabbits are my favorite animal.
