Hummm, takes about 10 minutes to get going. Nothing wrong with a little history though.

Cute!

HolyGod - There`s no such thing as LEGO. It`s a ridiculous term only Americans use. Get it right. The company is LEGO. The product? LEGO, or LEGO Bricks.

You never, ever need to put an S at the end of LEGO. Did they say "Legos" in teh video? No, they didn`t. Because it`s LEGO or LEGO Bricks.

Search Google, and you`ll also find that the company themselves had a page years ago, so that if you typed "Legos" into the address bar, you got an error page telling you it`s wrong, and the company, and product, is LEGO.

You will never find on the box, in the manual, on the websites for LEGO, any use of the term "Legos" because it is just plain wrong, and sounds ridiculous.

I guarantee if you sent an e-mail to LEGO, they`d tell you exactly what I`ve just told you.

But, you keep using the term if you want. So long as you know it`s wrong and it sounds awful.

When I was a kid legos were a big bucket of primary colored bricks in varying sizes that could build anything for $5. Now legos are licensed pre designed interlocking pieces capable of making one specific design for $70.

Is that what the video is about?

you know you dont have to make the picture that are on the box? it is just a way to sell you special shaped pieces
