Lego Time

Son has been saving up his pocket money and had planned to buy some more Lego during the Box of Bricks promotion at Mid Valley Megamall, where they had this  "LEGO City Swamp Police: Catch the Crooks" exhibition/promotion on.
He didn't get anything there at Mid Valley but he had fun taking photos. ^^

On Friday last week, we visited Bangsar Village and there, a similar Lego exhibits was held too.
He bought the Demolition Starter Set there and completed "a mission" where he was given a Lego Police Car to assemble and later was given a limited edition poster and certificate of completion. ^^

Then, we head to the Lego store located at Bangsar Village II and Son bought two sets of Ninjago and received more freebies! 

All in all I guess it was well worth the pocket money he had saved up to buy his Lego. 

Nothing too expensive.

He is building his collection slowly, with his own money.

His Mommy and Daddy always say, they'll provide for basic necessities such as food, clothes, education but toys; that one he has to earn them to enjoy them. Just like the new smartphone he got a few months ago.

  2. I so agree with Mak Glam on bringing up her boy.. yes, parents provide the basic necessity and the kids should be taught to "earn" things like toys and gadgets rather than to take for granted they will be given unconditionally by the parents.. which sadly, I think many kids out there think this way..

    1. I hope we're doing it right.

      SO hard also to know what is right to bring up kids nowadays.

  3. Good approach. Kids need to learn to work for something rather than take things for granted. So many kids are lacking this nowadays.

  4. Good for you, Lina! You and hubby are teaching your son financial responsibility, something very lacking in many young people of today. I know of some young working adults who still go to mummy and daddy to sponsor their expenses.

    Your boy is a Lego fan and he must be very happy with his Lego sets.

    1. He has to earn everything that is not necessities. Or save his pocket money.

  7. Good habits, let the kids save his own money and buy whatever he wants.

    1. Not really whatever he wants though. ;-)

      He still has to get our permission for whatever he intended to purchase.

      Just because he has money,doesn't mean he can spend it all. :P

  10. I also bumped into this and forgot where until I saw this post.
    It was such an expensive toy during my kiddo days and had to be
    purchased overseas. I always tumpang to play at friend's house.
    I believe it had helped to build my creativity.
