    I always loved LEGOS, in fact I still do. My sister has all the LEGOS that we played with as children, quite a few her two daughters enjoyed when they were younger, and the ones my grandmother's kindergarten students used for 30 years. They are one tough toy, lots of fun while at the same time inspiring creativity in people of all ages. The coolest thing I can remember building myself was a small model of the White House. Kept that one for a long time, but eventually it was demolished and the bricks put back in the box to be played with another day.

    Yesterday was LEGO'S 50th birthday. I'm glad to see them still doing well amidst the world of high-tech toys. I tried to post a link to an article about the big 5-0, but it wasn't working :sad2:. You can find several interesting articles/videos by doing a search though.

    Here's a link I KNOW will work, a BOC link :wink:. kbgrillin started this thread; some neat pictures of a LEGO church.

    Happy birthday LEGO's.

    I would love them more if they were not scattered from one end of my house to the other!:angry:

    Yeah, quite a few of mine went into the trash after my parents got them un-embedded from the soles of their feet when I was a kid:smile2: Maybe that's why I've always been fascinated with construction (and have made it a career) because I spent so much time building stuff with them when I was a kid. :wink:

    Had them too, like them also :wink:. What else......Hot Wheels and a loop de loop racetrack for 'em, a cool ant farm with one BIG habitat and lots of smaller ones that connected onto it with plastic tubing the ants could crawl through, a flea cirus - magnets that did all kinds of circus acts. TINKERTOYS! Dang, I'm gettin' so excited about this. Maybe I really never did grow up :smile2:.

    All the above mentioned toys were so cool! Man this thread brings back some great memories! :cool2: Another of my favorites was the Erector Set which was a bunch of pieces of metal with drilled holes and screws & nuts for putting it together. Todays kids have no clue what we are talkin' about! :crazy: :roll_eyes:
