My 9 year old is a huge lego kid. After building most of the Star Wars ships he is now onto Indiana Jones. He has the patience of a saint, and has built most of them with little help. Maybe one day it would be a job for him.

Several years ago, my nephew Raleigh built Camelot, complete with all the knights and all. So now he's 23--he probably doesn't even know where his Legos are.

Those are awesome.

My boyfriend and I go to train shows, and a couple shows had this massive layout done entirely in Legos. It's one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

The space ship? I dunno....a few hours I guess. Probably longer than most cause I had low Lego skillz. I hated reading directions, so everything took longer than it needed to. It was a good sized space ship though, close to two feet, maybe?

damn!


I only ever built small houses with them.

Lego was (and still is) one of the best that kids could/can play with. Makes them use their minds, to build stuff, etc.
