I love legos for more reasons than I can count. They have some of the best methods around. I am truly impressed by their ability to take bags of plastic and give me the ability to build complex structures using only pictures. They give me the power to reproduce miniaturized versions of my favorite scenes and structures.
And they use no words.
Not even once.
They are cross cultural, international, and multilingual without a single word of translation.
They use pictures to describe how to take thousands of pieces from baggies to buildings.
What in your life are you over-complicating?
