Houston…We’ve Got a (Lego) Problem!

But seriously…I do have some concerns.  Seems that my little man (age 3 1/2 years) has discovered the world of Legos.  And I mean the real ones…not those huge Duplos.

Two years ago, Santa brought Benjamin his very own Lego table.  The first thing this mama did was take away the accompanying bag of miniature (or normal-size) Legos and provide Ben with his first set of Duplos.  You know… those “giant-size” Legos.

Earlier this week, Ben discovered the hidden bag of tiny Legos.  Since he no longer puts things in his mouth and loves to build with Duplos, I consented to opening the bag.  Big mistake. HUGE.  Just like the size of  a Duplo.

This is what I discovered this morning in upstairs hallway:

Now that’s a choking hazard for a baby if I ever saw one.  Hmmm… looks like I’m gonna have to do some serious creative baby-proofing/design layout in the new shared nursery/preschooler bedroom!

  3. Uh oh, I never really considered when you have more than one kid how to get rid of any toys or objects that are dangerous to the little ones.

    Maybe he can have a designated "safe" spot he can play with them and you can put them up high. That way you know when he's using them and make him clean them up in front of you? That seems a little nazi like but just to be safe?

  4. and they pop up in the strangest of places sometimes! The blogger from cranelake is right - they HURT when you step on them! I have ours stored in plastic tubs (clear so they can see the tiny pieces that settle to the bottom) with lids! And they are stored on shelves in the closet where they can be shut safely away in the event of little company!

  6. There is always something to think about where kids are concerned.
    It's good to find this out now than later.
    Good Luck!
