Popular technology blog Gizmondo got to visit Lego recently, inspiring a whole series of interesting and nostalgic articles. But I'm guessing that Jesus Diaz must be roughly the same age as me, as he picked out a number of the sets I enjoyed building during my childhood while filming in their vault.
- The yellow castle complete with knights and shields.
- The Space Galaxy Explorer.
- The TECHNIK two-seat car/buggy - that my Dad helped me build into a four speed gearbox complete with clutch.
- An electric train that reminded me of my first one, that started quite a collection of rails and points.
And then there was the Lego Master Builders Club with the square metal pin badges and colour magazine full of stories about enormous brick creations.
Well worth a flick through the series of articles if Lego was part of your growing up (or that of your children/nieces/nephews). The good news for Littl'un is that I still have my childhood Lego. The bad news for my Mum and Dad is that it's still at their house!
