A new study found instead of investing in your 401k, mutual funds, stocks, gold, soy futures, or your nephew's startup, the SMARTEST thing you can invest your money into is . . . LEGOS.  No, really.

Lego is constantly retiring its sets . . . which makes them become rare and valuable.  Their prices go up a very steady and predictable 12% year over year.  That's a much better and more predictable return than any of the traditional investing methods.


Of course, there are some catches.  One, if the market ever drops out for Legos like it did for something like Beanie Babies, you're BEYOND screwed.  And two, even worse, you have to keep the Legos sealed in the box and not play with them.


But if you're looking to diversify your portfolio, you could do a lot worse than snapping up some "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" Lego sets.  Maybe you'll even get the joy of ripping one out of a child's hands in the aisle at Target.


But hey, if you can't invest in Legos with money, why not with time?  The after-school Lego Club will be held on the first Monday of each month, from February – May, from 3:00-4:30 p.m.  Lego Club will meet at Boonslick Regional Library in Sedalia.

Kids of all ages are invited to come to the MakerSpace in the children’s department and build with Legos, provided by the library.

For more information, call 827-READ (7323).   Boonslick Regional Library is located at 219 West 3rd Street.

Just don't step on them in your stocking feet.

Lego-ily yours,
