    Lots and lots of time, patience, money, and imagination.
     
  8. My Kid is gonna have tons of Lego. I've still got all of mine from when I was a kid including most of the instruction booklets that came with each set.

    I think Music makes kids smarter. So does Lego.

    You've obviously never bought Legos...
     
  12. There's actually a program that professional lego model builders use to create these things like the car. It calculates everything such as how many of what pieces to use where. The bricks are then glued together so those models are actually pretty stable.
    When I was little I seriously wanted to become a developer for new lego models. Sometimes I still wonder how I could get paid for playing with lego.
