  2. My own children didn’t assemble Lego models, so I had NO IDEA how complicated they were until I started buying them for nieces and nephews. Talk about a million little pieces. What do you do when a piece goes missing? Is there some massive “Lego replacement piece” shop in the cloud?

      Actually, you can contact Lego, give them the model number and describe the piece, and they will send a replacement piece — without charge. We’ve done that and the piece arrived fairly soon after. They’re good like that.
