Mr. C loves Lego, and after six years of receiving Lego sets, Mr. C has a lot of them now.
However, after a few months of hard playing, the set is taken apart and its pieces are scattered into the vast Lego bin of unattached pieces.
So we get out the huge pile of instructions and search for the pieces, and put it together again. Usually, we can’t find all the correct pieces, so we have to make some substitutions.
After a few hours of searching, it’s back together again. Yeah! The fire engine is back! That set cost quite a bit, it’s good to get it back together.
But then, a few months later, it’s all taken apart again and back into the vast bin of unattached pieces.
After six years of searching for missing Lego pieces, I’ve given up on trying to keep the sets together and accepted the idea that Mr. C is going to make his own creations.
Here’s a “Traffic Control” vehicle he made. It uses parts from the fire engine, as well as parts from about a dozen other sets, including the legs of a dragon.
It also has a magnetic rope that grabs the cars that cause traffic jams.
This might be better than a fire engine anyway. And ‘No’ you can never have too many Legos.
