50 years

Thanks to Google I now know that today is the 50th anniversary of legos- that staple and building block (hee) of childhood. Seriously. Legos are good things. I used to spend hours at my grandmother's house playing with an old set making elaborate houses and such. I wonder, how many great architects have been created over these past fifty years thanks to Lego? I'm sure there are at least a few.


  1. may legos live forever! thanks for tha call - we'll chat more later....:)

  2. I still like playing with legos, but I never can build anything that really impresses me.. so I'm glad I didn't go into architecture. :)

  3. I saw this google page this morning and said a little prayer of gratitude to the Lego gods. My kids spent about 3 hours yesterday happily building "space missions" out of Lego. It was a Sunday, so their spacecraft had names like Alma 13 and Ether 11. (Hey it sounded like a very appropriate activity for the sabbath, plus I got a nap out of it!)
