Revision of term "Black Market" in "SET THEMES"[edit]

The last sentence of the 2nd paragraph of "SET THEMES" reads, "Discontinued sets may become a collectable and command value on the black market." The term "black market", is incorrect and should be "resale market" or similar. "Black market" would imply illicit, fake, or stolen goods, and this is not the case, the sentence is describing secondary market sales of legitimate products.

This should be revised for clarity. Jakebed (talk) 01:38, 3 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

From the reference these sets are being stolen and then resold for a high profit. So "black market" is the correct term. Although it should also be mentioned in the article that the sets are being stolen.  Stepho  talk  02:31, 3 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Main strategy which is Adopt By Lego[edit]

By continuing to promote the educational value of their toys and market them as a way to nurture a child's interest in STEAM, LEGO ensures its products are “parent-approved.” This approach incentivizes parents to keep buying, which's been key to the LEGO marketing strategy from the start.

Considering that:
  • my parents bought me Lego in the 1970s and became a software engineer,
  • I bought my children (boy and girl) Lego in the 2000s and that my son also became a software engineer,
  • my grown children and myself still enjoy Lego (a major gift theme last Christmas),
  • about 1/4 of the software engineers (both young and old) at my work still enjoy building with Lego,
then yes, I'd agree that they have educational value. Anecdotal but I never regretted the value of buying and building with Lego.  Stepho  talk  05:45, 4 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
