This picture uploaded by a reddit user shows just why LEGO is the best gift you can give a child.
The message read as followed:
The urge to create is equally strong in all children. Boys and girls.
It’s the imagination that counts. Not skill. You build whatever comes into your head, the way you want it. A bed or a truck. A dolls house or a spaceship.
A lot of boys like dolls houses. They’re more human than spaceships. A lot of girls prefer spaceships. They’re more exciting than dolls houses.
The most important thing is to put the right material in their hands and let them create whatever appeals to them.
Buzzfeed reached out to reddit user fryd_ about finding the leaflet and one thing he said stuck out to us - "it struck me as a particularly modern message for something written 40 years ago. I thought the toy-makers of today could learn a thing or two!." We couldn't agree more. LEGO you are awesome.
