LEGOs and stuffed animals are two of the world’s most favorite types of toys. They are loved by many and actually have a few things in common. Let’s find out what are they.
Stuffed animals are quite a bit older than LEGO. LEGO is a creation of the 20th Century whilst, there have been quite a few stuffed animals in the years before that. Naturally both types of toys got most popular during the second half of the 20th Century. If you are like us, you probably have both some stuffed animals and LEGO sets. And here is why we love them both.
They are loved by young and old
Stuffed animals and LEGO sets are toys and toys are for children. This doesn’t mean that both children and adults love these toys. There are many people collecting stuffed animals and many people who love creating various LEGO objects, thinking of new projects and etc.
They are loved by boys and girls
There are toys that are made specifically for boys and toys for girls. Then there are toys that are thought they should be for girls and others – for boys. But stuffies and LEGOs don’t fall into either of these categories. They are in fact toys for everyone. All you need is to simply like them and you can have all the LEGO sets or plush toys you want and no one will ask you “aren’t these for boys?” or “shouldn’t girls be playing with those?”. Instead, they will ask you only two questions: “Where did you get them?” and “Can I play?”
They are great for developing skills
LEGOs are ideal for creative thinking, decision making, practical skills development and many more. Stuffed animals are great for basic education of colors, numbers, counting, animals, creativity and communication skills development.
