   nick58b writes "Lego, in response to the worst financial loss in its
   history, has announced they will [1]stop making the electronics and
   movie tie-in products. This would include Mindstorms, one of the
   greatest educational toys ever produced." It saddens me greatly to
   see the toy that was such a mainstay of my childhood to be in such
   dire financial straits. If I were a more qualified sociologist, I'd
   think it may have inspired by the way that our children play today
   versus how they played twenty years ago.
