This was in my inbox this morning and I can only conclude that someone in the advertising profession has lost his or her mind.
Did you read it? Let's summarize the theory here: Never mind the live action outside, kids; it's time to ignore the great outdoors and improve your understanding of nature by staying inside and playing with plastic bricks.
Well, there's a grand idea.
Who wouldn't want to trade all the colorful action outside for these utterly life-like models?
Not that the birds aren't cute, in their oddly modular way, but I have to say that I find the beaks a bit sinister. They look strangely militaristic and I keep expecting them to fire little green laser blips. Which, of course, would please my boys immensely and send them running for the nearest Lego store so they could add a new threat to their ongoing Lego battle.
