Based on This Study, You Should Buy Your Kids Legos If You Want Them to Get Into Great Schools

Everyone loves Legos, right? You can build just about anything with the fun and colorful little bricks, and there are plenty of expansion sets to help you make anything you can dream of. Apparently, playing with them as a child also means you’re destined for some pretty great things. Who’d have thought?

new study by Lego Japan has uncovered some interesting facts about some of the graduates from its most prestigious universities: Many of them played with Lego blocks as kids. The study rounded up 100 graduates from six of Japan’s elite universities in the form of the Universities of Tokyo, Keio, Hosei, Meiji, Waseda, and Rikkyo and asked them about what they did during their childhood, touching on how their hobbies may have affected their adult development in the long run.
As it turns out, over 60 percent of graduates from all of the above-mentioned universities actually played with a bunch of Lego sets when they were kids, with 92 percent stating that they chose to build things without additional instructions and chose to do it from scratch instead.
The graduates were asked about what effect the Legos may have had on their brain’s development over the years, and several of them answered that they found it had improved spatial organization, creativity, as well as their concentration. Legos are no doubt helpful when it comes to sharpening young minds, or even older ones since they help you to better various skills at once. You’ve got to learn a bit of patience when it comes to these colorful bricks as well, because Rome wasn’t built in a day, much like your best Lego creation.
So as it turns out, if you have children or are thinking about having them, you might consider having them play with Legos too, as it could very well improve their chances of attending the school of their choice. That, or make sure they know how to build a basic car, at least. Lego building skills are always going to be important.
