Most households have a set of these. Some have many sets covering the floor with these. What am I talking about? Those colorful plastic bricks are called Legos. Legos bring creativity out in the user. But on Sunday, you can get out all your legos- no matter your age. Sunday is National Lego Day.
Nearly 70 years have passed since Lego first introduced colorful plastic bricks to the world. Buildings, vehicles, creatures, machines, and anything else you can imagine can be built with Lego – and you can take them apart and put them back together again and again. There is no end to the creative play that can be had. A national Lego Day is celebrated every January 28 to honor these innovative and enriching toys.
History Of Holiday
Take part in National Lego Day on January 28 by building something awesome! The holiday was established in 2011 to commemorate the beloved brick toy for children and adults alike. Grab your LEGOs and get ready to build some amazing creations this National LEGO Day!
Ways To Celebrate The Day
For starters, you can make something from Legos. Sit down with the kids and build your own thing. Next, watch the Lego Movie. Online, you can even find Lego experts building creations. If you plan ahead, you can make a trip to Legoland in California, Florida, or Arizona.
Here are some fun facts to ponder this Sunday.
- Legos are good for the brain. They develop creativity, hand/eye coordination, and mental orderliness.
- Lego is the world’s largest tire manufacturer. They make over 400 million tires per year for their sets. That’s more tires than for vehicles.
- Legos are timeless. The Lego pieces made today fit together with the Lego bricks made years ago.
While some parents opt out of Legos for electronic-based toys, Legos are still among the top gifts given each year. Even when battery-powered toys run out of juice, Legos are still in use. They work for almost every age. They are timeless in their own right.
