LEGO is a favorite of ours. Most of us have played with the bricks when we were children, which is why we still love them. There are a number of things that are available in LEGOs, from computers to staplers. You might wonder why exactly LEGO is planning on releasing a line of multimedia devices made out of LEGOs. The answer is simple, they are for kids!
Well, maybe not just for kids, but also for the young at heart. LEGO will release a bunch of branded and brick-infused products, from cameras, MP3 players, PMPs, to walkie-talkies. There is only one problem. You can't take them apart!
There will also be a secondary line of products including boom boxes and alarm clocks. It's just too bad that LEGO didn't find a way to integrate the assembling and disassembling fun into their new products. It just seems strange that these LEGO products can't be taken apart. They will only look like they are made of LEGO bricks, but won't really be.
We think that LEGO should at least try to make their new products more LEGO-ish, enabling kids to take them apart and put them back together. Products always have detachable parts. It should be possible to make them be used like LEGO bricks in some fashion. Ah well, we will see when the products are launched later this summer. Prices will vary from $20 to $60. The secondary line will be launched later. We guess that if you really want your kids to have more educational fun with electronics, you could try the LEGO Mindstorms line, which is pretty fabulous in our opinion. [via Gizmodo]
