Lego is celebrating its 80th Birthday today and man, the company doesn’t look a day over 30, does it?
I’ve loved (read: Obsessed over) Legos my whole life. I spent many a childhood on the Lego Moon with all my Lego minifig astronauts. I customized my own Lego superheroes (with a little imagination, those astronaut jetpacks can also work as capes).
As an adult, I still love Legos. My kids love Legos. The toys, the keychains, even the insanely fantastic Lego Video Games. In fact, it’s always tough when I get a new Lego set (like the superawesometastic Avengers Quinjet) and want to just sit quietly and put it together. How do you say no to your kids wanting to build Legos with you? Yes, these are indeed difficult times.
Lego has been with me my whole life and I hope when I’m 95 years old, hobbling about in an old age home somewhere, I’ll still be able to sit down and put together an awesome Lego set. Mabye I’ll FINALLY get me that Lego Death Star I’ve been craving forever. Of course by then, I’ll need the “Large Print Edition” of their instructions.
Happy 80th Birthday Lego! Here’s to 80 more!
