Happy 50th Birthday Lego!
Ever since I can remember I’ve played with Legos. They’re such a part of my history that I honestly can’t remember not having them around.
To this day, I still get at least one Lego set from my family every Christmas and I still love putting them together. Did I mention that I’m 28, married, have a house, and own my own business? No matter how juvenile it seems, these tiny toys will always hold a special place in my heart.
Today marks the 50th anniversary of one of the most popular toys ever, and I would be remiss if I let it go by without acknowledging what Legos have meant to me throughout the years. To celebrate, here are a few links to some of my favorite Lego sites as well as pictures of some of the sets I have displayed around the office.
I hope that you enjoy these as much as I do. Happy Birthday Lego!
