Happy 50th birthday, Lego!!

Yep, today is apparently the fiftieth anniversary of the granting of the patent for one of the best toys ever invented in the entire history of the world, Lego. How great is Lego? And how unfair is it that once we grow up we’re not supposed to play with it as it is an immature thing to do, leading to us buying sets for kids in the family then ‘helping’ them build stuff with it… From the simple bricks first patented back then to the dizzy heights of Lego Star Wars, how bloody cool is Lego? Do I care how immature that makes me sound? Nope. Lego’s great and we all know it.(link via Boing Boing)
