There’s a lovely line in “The Lego Movie” where the dad tries to explain to his son that Lego (as he uses it) isn’t a children’s toy and the son points out that it was bought in a toy shop.
This week I was in one of my favourite London shops, Forbidden Planet, when I saw this highly articulated figure (he stands at about 3 inches or 7.5cm) – perfect for those toy photography opportunities. What made me smile though was the message on the back:
“This is not a toy. This product is intended for adult collectors and not for children under 14 years of age”.
At last – a cool reason to be a grown up. I can buy toys and say “But no, they’re not toys.”
