Building bricks are appropriate for nearly all ages. (Bricks are a chocking hazard for kids 3 and under!)
Picture this, every Saturday a father and his son spend at least one hour (usually longer) together building an advanced brick kit. Picture this, a grandma gets each grandkid a building kit at Christmas that they can make together. Picture this, hundreds of kids are lining up with their parents for a chance to make minifigures that look like them. Picture this, neighborhood kids are bringing their siblings to build bricks after school at a church. Picture this, a mom is using a brick-illustrated book for a bedtime story.
None of these are hypothetical. They've all been happening already.
