Yesterday, Lucy asked if I would play LEGOs with her. She started building a lava-falls, something very common in the game Minecraft, and I started tinkering with Catwoman’s motorcycle (part of a DC Comics set we got a while back). Here is the result:
Lucy showed me several iterations as she completed each, and I kept challenging her with "that’s cool, but can you do X?" Lucy didn’t disappoint.
In this one, Kai, the red ninja of fire*, can be seen relaxing at the top:
The speech bubble was pure-Lucy. Jay, the blue ninja of lightning, though, isn’t as thrilled at sinking into the lava.
My super-cycle also went through several iterations. I started by added the twin blades and a jet engine which turned it into something resembling a gyrocopter:
Then I decided a cool motorcycle like this really needed weapons. Big ones.
For both of us, it was 30 minutes well spent.
* Lucy is a huge fan of the cartoon series “Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu”. Kai and Jay are two of the good ninjas featured in the show.
