Lego has been voted the favourite toy of adults. The Mirror says Lego beat Action Man into second place, with Barbie and Ken in third, in a survey by the Cartoon Network. Scalextric came fourth, the teddy bear was fifth, and Matchbox Cars, invented in the 1950s, came sixth. Nintendo only made it so seventh place, while Meccano, invented by Frank Hornby in 1901, was eighth. Star Wars figures were at number nine, while Subbuteo is still proving popular in tenth place.

Lego, first invented by Dane Ole Kirk Christiansen in 1932, derives from the Danish Leg Godt, which means play well. Cartoon Network boss Richard Kilgarriff said: "It will be interesting to see whether Gameboy and Playstation reach the same iconic status as Lego in 30 years."

ive only played one of them.. i think it was called Lego Island or w/e and you do these missions and try to catch this theif whos stealing lego blocks. and you can make your own character in the beginning to play thru the game. its fun http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

for vehicles you can ride a skateboard, a helicopter, and an ambulence and cop car [i think i dont really remember]
