One of my favorite toys, Legos, turned 50 yesterday. As I remember it, I got my first legos as a hand-me-down from a family friend who had out grown them. In the beginning I was a fan of the space sets, then I moved on to castles and knights (Thanks for the huge castle Mom and Dad!) and ended up liking the town collection.
While most of my Legos collection is now being used by my Mom’s second grade class, I still have a few sets in my closet!
Here’s a timeline of Lego’s 50 years.
