It is so interesting to watch young children play with Legos. They make a plan, create a construction, and act out a play scenario with what they have created. These are skills that preschoolers need to develop through proper nurturing and experiences. Their imaginations can run wild. They do not need anyone to create a play scenario for them. They can create play scenarios based on their own experiences.

However, the experiences that a child has may dictate what play scenarios they create. For example, if a child experiences productivity and constructive scenarios, then they child can create productive and constructive scenarios. Unfortunately, if a child sees destructive situations and experiences an unproductive environment, the child may act out these scenarios.

In layman’s terms, if a child sees Legos being used in violent play, the child may copy this. It is the job of the parent and the educator to help the child to understand what is destructive and what is constructive and to make good choices.

Deciding whether or not to allow a young child to see the Lego movie is the parent or educator’s choice. Some preschools may choose to take children on a field trip to a matinee. It is the parent’s choice of whether or not to allow the child to go.

Rated for Appropriate Audiences, The Lego Movie will be in theatres Feb. 7, 2014. It is a Warner Brothers and Village Roadshow picture, directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who did “21 Jump Street” and “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”, according to the movie trailer.

The voices in the animated adventure movie are from popular stars, such as Will Ferrell and Liam Neeson. According to the movie trailer, the setting seems to show a great deal of productivity in a busy city and a theme of good versus evil with Super Heroes, such as Batman, showing up to save the world. There is even an appearance of an important real life historical figure, President Abraham Lincoln in his Lincoln Memorial seat. One character, an ordinary human, seems to get a boost in self-esteem.

Although there is some well-intended slap-stick comedy, the movie trailer gives a feel good impression. Of course, the intention of creating a Lego movie is to sell Legos.
