I’ve been testing LEGOs since we started reviewing toys. And while I wasn’t big on too many toys as a kid, I did love my LEGOs.
One of our testers just told me that her son sorts out all the pieces by color first before he starts to build. Maybe many of you already do this–but after decades of playing with LEGOs…it was a lightbulb moment for me. So I thought I would pass it on.
It comes under the same heading of things you might not think of….I had a similar lightbulb moment when I realized that if you actually look at a ball when you’re trying to hit it, the chances of actually making contact rise dramatically. Now if you’re a jock by nature, you are probably laughing…but for me this was HUGE. I wish I had come to this realization when I was a kid. So I mention it to all the coaches/gym teachers I come in contact with because I don’t think most people would even think it’s an option not to look. Perhaps because I was always sure that I was going to get hit by the ball, I naturally closed my eyes…or later in life looked at my opponents while trying to hit the tennis ball. So if this helps anyone…my good deed is done.
