Lego My Fun

When I was a kid Legos were just little blocks that you built "stuff" with. I say that because I wasn't too ingenius when it came to playing with Legos, in fact, I didn't really play with them too much. Now it's all I hear about! But, that is because I have a six year old nephew who is a Lego fanatic. However, Legos from my day have come a long way. No longer are they just the little blocks to piece together, now there are Lego Wii games (Indian Jones, Batman, etc) which even I can get into. I even find myself sitting down with him to build Spongebob Square Pants hamburger mobiles. For Christmas this year the list is long (as it usually is for six year old little boys), and I've been instructed by my sister to buy him the newest Lego craze: Creationary. Of course I had never heard of it and had no idea what it was, but I've been surfing through ToysRUs's website and find that Creationay is actually a Lego boardgame (kind of sort of but not really). Basically what you have is a lot of Legos and a dice which you roll and piece together what you get when you roll. Apparently you should be able to show off 1) your creativity and 2) you masterful building skills. Either way, I thought it looked cool so Aunt Sam is being suckered into buying it of course. Little does he know he's also getting a shirt and pants too. Maybe Lego has a cool Lego box to hide those in to make them more appealing? You never know...

Lego Toy


  1. I loved Legos! And Lincoln Logs and Tinker Toys. Whatever happened to those simple, classic toys?

  2. I've seen ads for the lego video games and they look terrible. The graphics just seem so blocky, I suppose so they resemble actual legos. I've always wanted to know do you actual build with these games, like a version of tetris? How are the games anythign like "real" legos?
