I bought micro-sized building blocks, which are sized 4mm x 4mm each and are for making Neuschwanstein Castle that is a famous landmark in Germany. I found it by chance at a book store. There were some other sets of blocks such as for making Himeji Castle.

To digress a little, but I've been frustrated that my son is always into DS. The fault might be us as his parents, but it was not an easy decision for us. There was a gap between my husband's thought and mine. And I didn't want my son to borrow DS from his friends always. At the end we gave it to him a few years ago. Although I set a limit that is thirty minutes in a day, he can't keep the promise. He enjoys it with not only games but also various functions. I have been always thinking if there is something for him to divert away from DS.

For that reason, I bought the blocks. When he was smaller, he used to enjoy LEGO blocks. And if he isn't interested in it, I will build it by myself. I went to see Neuschwanstein Castle a long time ago, so it's not bad to remind the trip.

You will build it on the green mat. And you can see the size of it by comparison with a pencil.

Same with my husband and myself. My husband had a free life. He was able to enjoy life without chores and responsibilities. I had a lot of chores and responsibilities, so our thoughts are different.

It's too bad about your son and his Nintendo DS (?). Of course, your sons generation is different from mine. I had a gameboy, but it was nothing like DS or cellular telephones that people have now!

Hi, Always visiting,

Thank you very much for your comment always.
Yes, many fathers are indulgent to their children. However I don't think that it's good that both parents bring up their children too strictly. So fathers take an important role for children.
