It's just been voted one of the top toys again...

I love LEGO!!! Oh yes... I mean, computer games are cool, but were waaay too expensive and hi-tech when I was but a wee nipper... but with Lego, it didn't matter! Space, nobbly houses, Godzilla-esque destruction of my brothers castle... all completely achievable through the medium of small plastic bricks. It taught valuable lessons about not putting things in your mouth just because they were the right size to put in there (Mum *screeching* - 'GET THAT OUT OF YOUR MOUTH! YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE IT'S BEEN!!!), helped you defend your room against intruders (that stuff hurts when you step on it!) as well as the infinite amusement of the vacuum cleaner breaking down and your Mum having a mini nervous breakdown due to small plastic bricks that lock together to make stuff getting stuck in the nozzle and burning the motor out.

Ahhh, kids don't know they're born nowadays... REAL Lego didn't have maps and instructions (unless you had Lego Technik, which was the posh Lego for budding nerds) - it was all about imagination, maaan! After a good healthy daily dose of Rainbow, Chorlton and the Wheelies or Playschool (or some other drug-spawned kiddies TV programme of the time), you just *had* to create. Considering these were the days when E-numbers and tartrazine were considered *good* for you (and after a pink Hippo, a weird, melon-shaped, gravel voiced turd and a gay teddy bear of quite frankly terrifying proportions called 'Bungle' (!!) had been talking bollocks at you for half an hour), these creations could be rather 'special'....

"Errr, what is it, dear?" mother would enquire, nervously.
"It's my magical kingdom, Mum! Look, this is where the monkeys live, and this is a giant horse!"
"Uhhh, okay. Why is the horse bigger than the house?"
*roll eyes* " Because it's a GIANT horse! And it's NOT a house! It's a magical kingdom!"
*Mother backs away slowly...*

Lego - they should give it away free on the NHS! :D

:D My Dad used to come and 'help' us play Lego... and at the time, he was well into his 30's! (I also used to 'help' my little sister too... and yes, I was well into my teens at that time too!)

Lego is just awesome... :tmb:

I don't like the new stuff with bionicle and all that high tech stuff..

Lego rocks! I got a big tub of it (red plastic with a lid with four huge Lego dots on it) for Christmas when I was about four, and I loved it ever since. :D Few years ago my dad bought us a Lego Robotics kit (insanely expensive... over a hundred quid) which is basically Lego Technik with motors and a programmable "brain". Had loads and loads of fun building nifty cars and things with it. :D

Awww, Lavinder! :hug: You should ask - nay, DEMAND - for Lego this Christmas :) . Never too old for Lego! (I have to say, though, that I don't think I was personally ever bought any... I think my brother was the one that actually *owned* the lego, but since being a big sister is 9/10ths of sibling law, it was my lego too... :D )

FUZZY FELTS! :D Omg - I loved fuzzy felt as a kid. We used to argue over who was going to play with it first at Primary school (such a loooong time ago...).

Can you still get it? It would be cool to get some and, ummm, you know, do some 'research' into its properties again, just to see if it's as good now as it was then... :whi:
