I loved designing buildings with my legos as a kid. My father was building inspector and as a 7 year old, I got a kick of my dad reviewing my work when my structure was complete!

LEGOs were by far my favorite toy growing up, and I especially loved to build planes. Now, I get to play with LEGOs on a daily basis with my four year old son. We pour out all of the bins of LEGO bricks and build buildings, cars, and helicopters together. It's always fun to see how long our creations last before they're destroyed again, usually in a matter of minutes. - Danny, IN
