"Play Well/Good" - LEGOS

Honestly, has there ever been a toy created greater than the LEGO? It is seriously one cool toy!

Did you know?????

Legos come from Denmark (Danmark).

The word lego comes from the two words leger and godt which mean play and good/well.

We literally have thousands of photos of lego creations. When I leave the camera in the toy room, it almost always ends up filled with photos of recent lego critters or buildings......

Children of all ages using their imaginations and building creations.

We are very fortunate in our household to have visited the original Legoland in Billund, Denmark.

We also visited Egeskov Castle and saw some of the original Lego Toys. Did you know that lego toys were originally made of wood, and the very first toys were milk trucks?

What kinds of lego creations have you been making?

Someday I will go to Legoland, and I will be very very happy.

Mainly houses and forts right now here.
