National Lego Day Review

 


What: National Lego Day

When: January 28


Attention all Lego fans!  And I think anyone born after 1962 ARE fans! 


As we celebrate the yearly holiday of National Lego Day, this year, 2022, is extra-special as we celebrate the 90th birthday of LEGO. They were invented in Denmark in 1932 and this fascinating building toy as we know it today was introduced to the United States in 1962. Most of you enjoyed playing and building with Legos as children. Many of you have continued your interest into adulthood. Or, if you won't admit to your grown-up self that you still love playing with Legos, you can easily hide your 'fandom' by 'helping' your children and/or grandchildren build their latest set. 


The writers on Review This! have written reviews of many Lego sets, from small ones to very large ones.  In case you have missed any, I give you this compilation to check out many of the favorites which are on the market today.

    1. You always seemed like the Lego Queen, Sylvestermouse. From your reviews, I can clearly see how much you enjoy working with Legos. Working with our children always makes it fun.

  4. Legos are a favorite for many people and having grandchildren is just the bonus when it comes to playing all over again. I don't think there has ever been a better building toy that covers a whole range of boys and girls, youth and adults too! Legos are #1 in our household. Thanks Pat for pointing out all the different sets too!

  6. Who doesn't love their Legos? Another toy that has stood the test of time. We have have so many Legos and enjoy building with our grandchildren. I've come to find out that you're never too old to build with Legos.

    1. I agree, Sam. You are never too old to build with Legos. We had so many Legos from our 3 children that when they grew up I had a large tub filled with them and passed them on to a grandson who enjoyed them just as much. My cousin's kids outdid us - by the time her two left for college, they had SIX large tubs filled with Legos. The most I've ever seen in one household! True Lego Lovers!

  7. Your review brought back many happy memories of playing with Lego when I was a child. I used to play it with friends, alone and with my parents. I think Mum & Dad enjoyed it as much as I did! Although I have not played it for years, I don't think you are ever too old to enjoy playing with a Lego set!:) This is a wonderful compilation of Lego sets to enjoy and buy as gifts.
