At least none of it needed batteries -



I don't want to see another Lego for 6 months -  :D

There are actually four sets sitting there - the ship (with dock), and helicopter (red item, lower right) each took about 2-3 hours each to complete. The two independant tower/gate looking things took about an hour. That f*ing castle took me about 10 hours total; it's in three sections and it's all interlocked. Main problem with all of them is that the instructions are these small diagrams that get a bit hard on my eyes.

All the sets are related to a game called Skylanders that my oldest likes to play. She helped me a bit.

She's had that table for years.

 @packrat .. Nice Job!! Great family activity.

Yeah, to the LEGO uninitiated, get on board really amazing stuff creatively.
My young nephew from age 5, now age 9 is a LEGO maven. He absorbs LEGO puzzles.
Amazing, He just looks at the picture on the box & Viola.. It's done.
Of course, his favorite video game is MindCraft   ;)
