Living in a Lego World

Before you know it, you won't be able to do anything without seeing Lego, those addictive building blocks of joy. Kids and adults can't seem to get enough of them.

Back in March, I wrote about the excitement my wife and my daughter had visiting the new LegoLand Discovery Center in Yonkers. It has become one of my pre-schooler's favorite destinations. 

In addition to the countless editions of the toys, there have also been videogames and animated movies inspired by the Lego brand, even some catchy songs, one of which I heard on the radio this morning as I was driving to the mall. As if to prove that I couldn't escape the Lego presence, a huge display greeting me when I arrived -- a celebration of the 100th Lego Store that was opening in White Plains.  Crowds of enthusiasts of all ages gathered around the tables to sample some of the Lego knick knacks, just as fine jewelers would gather round a display of precious gems.

Mark my words, Lego will take over the world, and most people won't be complaining.
