Adults-only Lego

I found this Lego set on Amazon UK. It’s actually way more elaborate (and expensive) than any I remember seeing in the Australian catalogues, but what I thought was really funny was that Amazon has attached a legal-sounding age restriction to it, as if it was an adult video game or DVD, or alcohol.

Lego age restriction

“Not for sale to persons under the age of 16. By placing an order for this product, you declare that you are 16 years of age or over. This item must be used responsibly and appropriately.”

That’s right folks — responsibly and appropriately — which means no giving it to your 7 year-old and letting him pull all the pieces apart to make robots.

Well, someone under 16 years might swallow one of the pieces. i.e. it’s a choking hazzard for teenagers.

It actually depicts an Amsterdam coffee shop. Complete with zoned out Aussie backpackers having their seventh legal joint in a row. And never you mind what is going on in the hotel upstairs. Let’s just say that the rooms are paid for by the hour. Gotta love the Europeans!
