Great Adventures Answered
Does anyone remember the old Great Adventures sets? I collected almost all of them for my kids when they were younger. We had the castle complete with all of the Knights, the King, the invading King, the bad knights, the wizard, the small dragon, the large dragon, the "Special" knights, the boulder launching cannon etc. We also invested in the western town set. We had the sheriff, the deputy, the jailer, assorted bandits, the bucking bull, etc. Another set was the pirate ship. We collected the large ship, the small ship, all of the captains, sea serpent, pirate island, shark raft, the iron whale, and over two-dozen pirates! We had a ball playing with these things. Me and the boys spending good quality time together.
Then we had a small problem. i was transferred for work and the boys thought they had to leave everything behind (including the great adventures sets they loved!) They never told us though. We thought that they were just having issues with the move in general. We followed some tips from a buyers agent website (mainly the one entitle Communication) and figured out that they were worried about leaving behind everything. We quickly fixed the misunderstanding and resumed a peaceful move.
