Welcome to theBrickBlogger!
Most of us get introduced to LEGO as a child, and create all kinds of wondrous things for some years. Once reaching our teens though, many of us leave the little plastic bricks behind for other pursuits and hobbies.
Sometimes this is a natural change of interest and sometimes it is a result of not wanting to look childish; “still playing with toys”. This is what LEGO fans call entering our “Dark Ages”, and usually last from late-teens to early to mid-thirties.
And then something happens… it could be that we no longer care what other people think of us. It could be that we re-discover LEGO through our children. Or it might be just an accidental walk down the LEGO aisle at the local department store…
Whatever it is, all of a sudden we are excited again. Our creative juices are flowing again! We look at all the new sets with bright-eyed wonder! “Wow! Look at all those shiny new sets! We didn’t have these when I was a kid!”
And we also realize – with glee, I might add - that now that we are grown-up, we can actually buy all those sets we always wanted and never able to get as a child. So, we enter an era of magic again… an era of play, creativity and lots of learning as we try to catch-up on all those lost years.
This has been my journey as well, and I thought to share my discoveries as I go along with those on a similar path. I hope you enjoy my site and that we can learn from each other. Don’t forget to comment and share your own thoughts and creations!
