lego-logo.jpgThe most amazing thing happened right this second. (Jan 28th 1:58 PM) The Lego brick turned 50 years old.

Can you imagine just trying to build things with sticks a rocks. That is just inhumane. Kids need multi-colored easily connected blocks of joy to grab their imagination and turn them into creative adults with something to live for.

My favorite was the Galaxy Explorer sets rockin’ the early 80’s. Point toward Denmark and shout Happy Birthday.

The freaks over at Gizmodo have thrown a great celebration with facts, timelines and best Lego sets in history.
