There was no toy I enjoyed more as a kid than my Legos. I remember the exact drawer in which we stored them and have vivid memories of building a two-story house with my Dad, with shutters that we would open and close each morning and evening. In the world before cable TV and the internet and iPads and computers, I had Lego (and Brio) — and that was all I needed.
Now that I’m all growns up, so to speak, with new hobbies and distractions and family obligations, it’s always fun to re-live some of that childhood nostalgia. My son loves playing with my old Brio set and Lego. What great cross-generational fun!
