Yes, Lego. Those delicious little bricks that rock my world almost daily. Lego affords me the chance to enter deep flow as I focus on following instructions and building my-own-creations (MOCs). It’s also a way I stim, which is a word used to describe the way autistic people (and some others) self regulate. Some autistic people flap their hands. Others spin. I touch Lego.
As a company, Lego scores a ‘B’ on most ethical toy lists and for this reason, I’ve (mostly) stopped buying it and instead re-built and create with the collection I have.
