LEGO: When Toys, TV, & Learning Come Together #StreamTeam

#StreamTeam

After extensive research*, I’m confident that in saying that there is only one negative thing about Lego: Is there any other toy (besides a smartphone or a tablet) that a 5 year old and 45 year old can equally appreciate and enjoy?
