Amazing What You Can Do with Lego’s

~

When I was a kid, I had a friend that had tons of this new toy called Lego’s. Technically I was friends with his sister, yet he had these cool Lego’s I could play with so I hung out with him more often. I loved building stuff with them, even though I wasn’t really creative. The neat thing about Lego’s was how you could build the predetermined structures they provided with the Lego’s (what I tended to do) or they could be used to be creative and use your imagination to create anything you want.

Lego’s have grown into a multi-billion dollar business. Have you ever looked at how expensive some of these sets are? Just a set that builds a plane or car can cost at least $25 bucks. Heaven help you if you get asked to buy a kid one that has a special theme like Star Wars or Harry Potter. Some of these suckers can go $100 and higher.

Like I said, not only can you use these Lego’s for their original use, but since they are a bitch to separate, they can be extremely strong when stacked together so you can even fix things…

Through the years some of these folks have spent thousands of dollars on their Lego collection. Ton’s of little bricks that kill your foot if you have ever stepped on one. (you know what I mean).

So I thought I’d go find some cool things people have made. These are just what Google found pretty quickly, I can only imagine if I went to one of the many sites that are dedicated to this art form.

Here are some buildings people have done…

Can you imagine how much you have to keep looking at the original building to keep tweaking? Never mind keeping to scale.

Ok, I’ll stop, but you have to admit, it’s kind of cool. I’m amazed at the talent it takes to do any of these. I wouldn’t even know how to begin any of these projects. Unless you gave me step by step instructions, I’d be lucky to pull off a box. I use to make some really good boxes.

Have any of you made any cool things out of Lego’s?

            I know! you know I have been seriously thinking about that. I should have saved some of the Barbies that were out back in late 70’s early 80’s and let my kids cash in on it. But no, I had to cut all their hair off and draw make up on them, even superstar barbie! lol

    Tammy you should go to Legoland in Carlsbad. They have insane things built there and they have professionals there you can watch while they build some truly amazing things. If you’re a lego lover you gotta see this place.

    Have you seen K’NEX? They have a website (knex.com) and everything. They’re compatible with Legos, and they take building stuff out of Legos to a whole new level. The company makes Tinkertoys and Lincoln Logs, two of my faves, and is even making Lincoln Logs out of real wood like they did when I was a kid. My favorite, though, was the Erector set. I had tons of fun with that.

    Thirty years ago, I was in Holland on business and got a chance to visit the Meccano museum (Meccano is the European Erector set). That was one of my favorite stops on the tour. It’s in the Madurodam miniature park in Den Haag, itself a cool experience (it’s Holland in miniature). If you ever find yourself there, check it out.
