I am participating in the The ABCs of Raising Well-Rounded Geeklings run by Suzy Homeschooler. For each letter of the alphabet a blogger is doing post with a geek theme. She mentioned LEGO and I was in.
L is for LEGO! You know I love LEGO. I write about it on the site all the time. We have a lot of bricks, and we play with them often. I never thought I would say this but LEGO is a pretty big part of my life!
My first introduction to this great toy was when my brothers got some bricks as a gift long ago. I thought it was ok, but I didn’t play with it much then.

My youngest brother was very much into LEGO. He played with it all the time. My son is exactly the same. Now I am enjoying creating with it as well. It wasn’t until I saw some very cool builds on the Internet that I realized just what you could do with those tiny bricks.
I have had the pleasure of interviewing some incredible artists who work in LEGO bricks including:
- Bruce Lowell
- Jason and Brian Lyles
- Nathan Sawaya
- Sean Kenney
- Warren Elsmore
- Jordan Schwartz
- Chris McVeigh
Chris does some great Star Wars and other geek builds. Click on the names to read the interviews and see their extreme builds.
I think LEGO is geek all on its own but you can certainly geek out in some super ways by using it.
Build a Batman Mosaic or design your own fantasy creation like a LEGO Leprechaun Trap, build a Star Wars Death Star, a TIE Fighter or a Millennium Falcon, or take a look at my son’s LEGO Robot and try your own.
They are all awesome. LEGO is awesome!
