GIFTS of Lego have been opened, built and are now sitting there being as dull as shit.
Across the UK complicated kits, ranging from Harry Potter to Sonic the Hedgehog to Minecraft, have been carefully constructed according to the manual and now have little to no playable value.
Mother Helen Archer said: “He’s wanted this Spider-Man one all year. And to be fair he did have fun building it. But now what?
“You can’t really play with it without bits falling off, it’s hardly nice to look at, and apparently it can’t even be taken upstairs without risking total collapse. It’s got all the replayability of a sand castle.
“Even he’s disappointed, though he’s not admitting it. He’s just staring at the telly trying to pretend he’s happy with it. And yes, obviously I’m talking about my husband not our nine-year-old son.”
Lego enthusiast Tom Booker said: “The message of The Lego Movie, from which multiple sets replicating key vehicles were released that must be built precisely as directed, is Lego’s most fun when you’re using it creatively!
“What’s better than digging through a bin of Lego, sharp as glass shards, to find the bits you need and being unable to? Actually almost anything. It’s f**king shit, isn’t it.”
