So my daughter was just playing with the Sabre Island set, which I had added a redcoat officer to for some reason.  This is what happened a few minutes later.

And her words while playing?  "Any last words?"

Kids are awesome :D

Good for you that you're introducing her to LEGO at a young age, and also that you're showing her some of the older LEGO as well :thumbup:

Why didn't you allow her to favour pirates? I've always been on their side as a kid. :pir-classic:

We rotate sets and she plays equal time with the pirate sets as well.  Rock island refuge is her favorite.

It means nothing ;) As a girl and when a kid, I know I would have put the blue pirate on the ground too!

Thumbs up for letting her play with your older sets.
