Re: Big fucking deal
Forgive me for a serious answer to stupid trolling but:
Lego and Playmobil don't work the same way. Playmobil is about "let's pretend" type playing, where they're used to construct stories. My kids sometimes set out epic-scale 'sets' with detailed stories about what everyone is doing.
Lego is more about the pleasure of inventing, building, doing. So there's still the creativity but it's put into creating 'things', not stories.
Completely complimentary, and adapted to different types of children, or the same children for different types of play. In a past age, I would have said that Playmobil is for girls and Lego for boys, but beside the fact that you can't say that stuff any more, it was only ever an approximation.
