The Birth of the Lego Brick happened on January 28th, 1958. The red Lego brick was born.
We all are fairly familiar with those first red bricks...or maybe not!
As kids we had red and white bricks that we used to create forts for our little soldiers. We had epic battles in and around our forts.
Legos has come a long way since then.
In 1978 they started producing Minifigures with faces. They soon moved onto expressions and different outfits. Of course there are so many licensed minifigs that are popular like Star Wars and Disney for example.
Lego has created sets just for adults.
I got this from my CrossFit Coach. Finally, an orchid I won't kill!
There is even a VIP lounge on the Lego site. I guess there is a TV show called Lego Masters. I've never seen it, but I might just do a search for it on one of these cold nights.
What can I say? I've found Legos again in my adulthood, or perhaps second childhood. I carry some Legos minifigs around with me in a pocket or my camera bag because you never know when some opportunity will show up.
So Happy Lego International Day one day late.
Enjoy imagination because it sure can make the world a little bit kinder.
