me, according to my children, anyway. :grin:

Herself is *totally* enthralled with the easel. She figured out that if we cut a piece of the box up, she could use her copy paper on it (Cynthia contributed some chip clips to the cause - they hold paper to the cardboard *perfectly*), and do...whatever it is she's currently doing on it. Huh....looks like markers and...paint?...and....pastels? I dunno - but she's creating a masterpiece over there on it (using her new Art Set - yesterday, it got a "Huh. It's nice. No Prismacolors, but it's...OK". Today? It's the 2nd hottest thing going. :grin:)

As for Himself.....I knew the Lego Mindstorm Droid Development Kit would be a hit...but I didn't calculate the *exact* hitness of it. I'm surprized we haven't gotten earthquake warnings here - the squeals were SO loud, and the Squeeing so intense that the windows rattled and the clouds dumped more wet stuff on us. :lol:

Seriously, I have 2 deliriously happy children right now, a masterpiece in progress, and....and half-finished droid rolling around on my floor. (He's just about figured out how to program the silly thing.)

I'd say Chanukah was a hit....:grin:

My son has Mindstorm NXT - it really is awesome! He was actually in the LEGO club at school that used them in 7th and 8th grades... they even made it to state the second year. They can do so much with them!

Yeah - Sweet Geek scored a Mindstorms v1.0 for him, and I can't WAIT to see the expression on his face when he gets it.

The Droid kit is cool, but I can tell it's an add-on. *HE* can't, which is good, and I think it's a cool introduction to the "Real" Mindstorms set.

I'm hoping the middle school out here does something with them, but I have my doubts (which is why I've been hunting them forEver). I don't think they have any LEGO clubs out here, either (no one has mentioned it to me yet, and you'd think they would....they keep telling me how smart/awesome/wonderful he is :sigh: Yes, he is smart, but don't rub it in - he's got enough problems interacting with kids his age without adding that to the mix)

Glad to get a positive review of the Mindstorms - *I* thought it was cool, but knowing someone with experience thinks it's cool.....that's great! :grin:
