LEGO DOTS: Are They Dumb?
So, LEGO DOTS are a thing. But are they dumb?
Turns out, no. They're not. Actually, they're kinda neat.
See, my hot girlfriend puts up with a lot of my LEGO bullshit.
I disappear into the LEGO room for hours, working on goofball projects, while she watches Korean dramas on Netflix.
I spend forever in the toy aisle.
I wait up to midnight on the eve of a new release to make all my day-one purchases.
If I'm breathin', I'm buildin'.
Which means any time LEGO comes out with something my better half might have fun with, I take the chance and grab it.
She's a cool chick.
She built my Mos Eisley Cantina. Put together the Stranger Things "Upside Down" all by herself. And seems to enjoy assembling LEGO sets in general.
She's kind of a closet AHOL. Which is sexy.
So, when she was thumbing through last season's LEGO catalog, stumbled across the section dedicated to DOTS, and expressed interest in the theme, I had to indulge the girl.
We picked up #41915 DOTS Jewelry Box, #41905 DOTS Rainbow Jewelry Stand, #41906 DOTS Pineapple Pencil Holder, #41901 DOTS Funky Animals Bracelet, #41910 DOTS Ice Cream Besties Bracelets, and a couple packs of Extra DOTS.
I'm Hot for DOTS!
Guess what? She loved them!
And for that reason, I sorta did too.
When it comes to LEGO, I'm pretty anti-gimmick.
I dislike when they try overly hard to be something they aren't.
I'm in love with LEGO.
I love them unconditionally for exactly what they are. They don't need to try wild new things in order to impress me.
In fact, LEGO's attempts at thinking too far outside of the box usually turn me off in big ways.
Shit like Galidor. Or Znap. Or Spybotics.
A Small Bag Of Thin Dicks
It's doubtful I'll ever plonk down pesos for a LEGO DOTS set of my own.
But if picking up a few here and there for the lady means we can sit side by side in front of the television, happily building together, then these interesting little sets are definitely worth snatching up.
They're fun. Practical.
