LEGO 50 years old

Lego has been the toy of choice for 50 years now and it is still going strong. The beauty of Lego is that it is virtually indestructible and has so many uses! I remember making cars, houses, space ships, guns and a whole host of other things from a small bucket full of bricks.Lego now have over 2,400 brick shapes to choose from in all shapes, sizes and colours. Their is even a lego land! Another interesting Lego fact is that Seven boxes of Lego are sold every second around the world, and 19 billion components are produced each year — enough to wrap around the Earth’s circumference five times.

All the celebrations made me think about some of the gadgets that lego has inspired over the years, some of which I received as gifts for christmas presents (you and I both know, men never grow up).
