I love Lego.
Matt’s parents have an enormous box of it, so when we’re up there, we tend to spend a lot of time making space ships and such.

I still have all my LEGO sets dating back to when I was young.  And I’ve bought a lot over th years.  Most of them are packed away in the closet of the office, though.  And the real old sets are hopelessly unusable as sets since pieces are missing and instructions are missing.  But I have a big tub off all the “miscellaneous” bricks for building whatever.

One of these days when Sydney is older the sets will be put together (not all of them - I have too many for the house to hold) and on display again. smile

When I was really young we had some live in au pair’s from Denmark.  Whenever they would visit home they would bring me back legos from legoland.  I wanted so bad to get to go visit legoland, then I heard they were going to be building a legoland in san diego (carlsbad is still in San Diego county…i think) I just couldn’t wait.  Of course, from that point it was over 10 years before it was actually built and I was far too outgrown for it.  Damn it, I would have loved it so much as a kid.

I liked the sets they used to have with all the gears and axles and pneumatic pumps and things like that. . .I used to make live-traps for animals (or people) out of them, or build various bits of complicated artillery.  Sure, I’d make the thing that the set had instructions for first, but soon after I’d be tearing it apart and making my own stuff instead.

And I used to make some darn good castles with the Medieval sets.  wink

Although the ToysR’Us in Times Square might have more square feet, but nothing can compare to the Legos available at FAO. They sell a Lego kit for a life sized Batman!!... It’ll cost you $27,000.00 though wink

I gave my Lego to a school for disabled children. The Salvation Army were very rude and flippant when I tried to give it to them. So I cut out the middle man and tracked down someone on my own.


And now I want it all back downer

I’ll borrow my parents’ buckets of Lego, Renquist, and we can have a Lego and alcohol night.
