Awkward LEGO-Related Thing You've Had To Explain To Your Parents?

Me and my brother tried to watch Legends of Merry Nui once. My sister was two at the time and apparently Makita was too scary for a toddler.

You could’ve just looked confused and said “what?” seeing as you provided all the details in your original statement. It’s what I would’ve done

Apart from the occasional long-winded lore dump that makes me sound too invested, I’ve never really had to explain anything to my parents. Case in point: my brother got Roodaka (who seems to be a surprisingly common theme in this topic) in '05 and absolutely no questions were asked.

I once mentioned to my parents how BIONICLE taught me politics. I had to explain several historic aspects like how the Barraki inspired Teridax, who was a good guy at that point, to betray what he stood for and those he was supposed to serve.

Of course I didn’t use their names because they wouldn’t understand any of that. Despite that, they still don’t believe BIONICLE taught me anything. Their mistake.

Well at the very least, it, or Lego in general, teaches creative freedom and out-of-the-box thinking :wink:

Of course. you take it out of the box, and then you think “okay, it’s out of the box”

Most awkward thing I’ve ever explained: the difference between Hero Factory and Bionicle. I mean, most parents have absolutely no clue how they differ, and usually don’t have the patience to have it explained to them. But thankfully, I just send my family the eBay links, so I don’t have to go into why I want this.
