I have always counted myself lucky that my parents gave us legos and puzzles to play with as kids instead of dolls.  My two sisters and I kept ourselves entertained with spatial problem-solving toys, although they weren’t very popular with our young friends. Two of us are now engineers and the other a successful graphic designer.
