Childhood toys make dream jobs! Do you remember what career you dreamt of as a child? What triggered that ambition and made you want that job? Well, with 82% of people not actually in their dream job, there are endless questions as to why these big dreams remain figments of our imagination.
New research carried out by Lego has revealed that toys can influence a person’s dream job. With 58% of construction workers and 45% of architects and engineers having played with building and construction toys when they were children, toys are believed to stimulate our interests in a particular career.
