Demystifying LEGO® Instructions: Insights from Ana Beirão in Lisbon

Story #6 – What do you mean LEGO® Instructions?

When I was a child, I would borrow all my LEGO® from my cousins.

They were given to me in big shopping bags filled with bricks, or half-built with one or two parts to be rebuilt. I loved building and played with these bricks all the time building houses for my dolls or just doing official repairs for my cousins!

When I saw LEGO® ads on TV, I wondered the amount of imagination it took to build such boats and buildings – and I tried my best to replicate them with my bricks.

The years went by, and as an adult was time to do the same that my cousins did for me – spark imagination and creativity. So when my son turned 5, I bought him a LEGO® box and I was completely gobsmacked that there were instructions. I had no idea! 

I shared my amazement with a friend.
