Lego blocks are ubiquitous in the world of play. They were created by a carpenter in Denmark, and patented in 1958.
Karl, my first friend, first exposed me to Legos when I was six. My wife played with them in her youth. So did my nephews and sons. My wife and I enjoyed building things with the blocks with our sons and nephews.
In the 90's, we visited Legoland in Carlsbad, California. Now there is a Lego Movie.
The Lego blocks were also fun, and challenging, to paint. Expect to see more here.
Lego is derived from the Danish "leg godt." That word means "play well," and fits perfectly in this blog!
