The Timeless Toy that is Lego Singapore
When the movie was released last 2014, kids, teens, and adults alike laughed at the comedy and were awed with the creativity displayed by Emmet and his crew. For the kids the movie reflected how they played with the blocks and made vehicles, robots, and toys by putting them together. For the older audience, it brought back memories of how these toys were part of their lives and played with them; reminiscing on how the blocks they played with are still relevant today. This is the influence Lego have with us. The extreme popularity of the toy set prompt their group to make more blocks and sets that kids can play, and in turn pass on to their kids someday.
