Flashback Friday: Happy 80th Birthday, LEGO!

This was a big one in my childhood.

My family played with LEGOs a lot.
We built the sets, and often we'd just let our imaginations run wild and make our own structures, vehicles, and random shapes.
And then they made Star Wars LEGO sets. So of course we had to get those.
Have you ever wondered about the backstory for LEGO?
I hadn't.

But here it is in case you're curious.

The LEGO story

Happy 80th birthday, LEGO!

Now who feels like making a LEGO Empire State Building with me?


  1. 5 of my nephews just drove to DC for the lego convention...too bad you missed that one!

    1. That sounds amazing, Jen; I'm gonna have to put that on my calendar for next year!
