If your son is laying Lego traps for monsters - 'tis he who is the monster.


FritzTheThird

Fighting fire with fire works in some scenarios.


redunculuspanda

School boy error. Everyone knows the monsters live under the bed.


darwin_thornberry

Kid’s actually trying to keep the monster trapped in his room the sadistic fuck!

You put "traps" in quotes, but have you ever stepped on a Lego? That stuff can drop a 250 lb man.


Dances_With_Boobies

Yeah pretty sure these are forbidden under the Geneva convention


elppaenip

Just like hollow points and flamethrowers


kat_d9152

And the way he set them up so the big blocks will dig in at 45 degrees. Little dude weaponised lego.


cybercuzco

Pretty sure a 2x2 block would destroy a hydraulic press.


mjrice

Well his son's name is Oedipus.


cool_slowbro

Multicolor thin line of legos don't make for much of a trap.


CX-97

Until you accidentally step on it.

Is your sons name Kevin by any chance?

On Christmas Eve when I was about three years old, my parents explained to me that a fat, jovial man with a bushy beard was on his way to break into our house. I responded with the appropriate amount of panic, only calming down after being told that the interloper was going to bring me some new toys. Even then, though, I was *incredibly* worried that Santa might try to visit me in person... so my father helped me write a brief letter to the man (using my child-size easel), in which I requested that he stay away from my bedroom. I remained undisturbed all night, meaning that the message was completely effective. Anyway, if your son ever gets tired of constructing traps, you can tell him that a stern note will work just as well. Monsters – much like Santa Claus – are notorious for their tendency to obey any and all official signage.

The Lego caltrop is the invention of either a genius or a future war criminal.


Wtfjushappen

The double blocks look especially evil


ZockStartion

Those would keep even me outsite, i step on sooo many lego pieces already. Its worse than breaking bones, pure suffering for the few minutes after.


TheBelhade

Those are 'trops not traps, as in caltrops.


JahMedicineManZamare

Caltrops are excellent against a calvary charge, not so much against monsters.


Reverend_James

Until they step on them


legomanutz

works on parents too


oilfeather

What about the monsters that float or crawl along the ceiling?


Emil_cb

Poor guy is yet to realise that he is also keeping the tooth fairy out


0ldManMcGucket

My feet hurt just by looking at this


Felicitucky

I thought this was against Geneva convention regulations


Over_Worldliness4788

As adorable as that is, your son is committing a war crime


millwrightbob

Definitely need a backup wall under the bed incase they breach the perimeter.


gravitas-deficiency

Lol this kid literally made some lego caltrops 😂


happy2harris

Did anyone ever figure out what was wrong with the title that got it removed?


EchidnaRider

I believe I broke the rule about sharing friends or family works. I dunno though I got the shits about it being removed and didn't ask.


oroechimaru

How did he keep the room from being a mine field?


Fuquois

Shouldn't he set up a line of defense for the ones that come up under the bed like in Little Monsters?

My 5yo autistic foster son does this with matchbox cars which he sorts by colour. So far, so good.


munkeybones

Shh sshhh shhhh you hear that noise...? No noise... Means no bees


Turbulent_Party5371

Pretty sure this was outlawed by the Geneva Convention!


Aviator8989

Dude the Geneva convention would like a word.


JonnyEcho

I used toy soldiers and those fuckers turned on me. And I had worse nightmares… should’ve gone with the lego barricade


neomay

Oww, I can feel that. Remember to lift your feet! Lego hurts. Smart kid. Out of the box thinker.


xanthraxoid

In my house we have a very useful rule: The only monsters allowed in the house (and that includes the garden) are "frengly" monsters. Any monsters that are mean or scary aren't allowed, and the frengly ones eat any that try to come in, unless they become frengly :-) Also, you'll notice that teddy bears never close their eyes, because they're always looking out for naughty monsters who try to break the rules! My little girl is older now and can even pronounce "friendly" but we still giggle about scaring away unfrengly monsters :-P


dan3659

Maybe direct your sons attention towards article 4 https://ihl-databases.icrc.org/customary-ihl/eng/docs/v2_rul_rule80

Sam and Dean had it wrong this whole time

Does he wear a little bow tie and ride around on an old timey tricycle?

KetzerJefe343

He should make the monsters work for him. Less effort and he gets some henchmen to do his bidding.

Ethandrul

Fo and buy a toy monster. Lay it across the trap gently. Record and play some sort of monster sound. When the kid wakes up he will find the toy and think that his traps turn monsters into toys. Confirm this as scientific and say that peeing the bed will probably turn them back into monsters though. Boom. No more bed peeing.
