Leggo turns 50

Leggo turns a surprisingly young 50 years old today.

Having spent a couple of hundred dollars on Leggo during this last fortnight, for The Golden Child, may I say: bless Leggo, long may they prosper.

Apart from being a suitable and educational toy for all ages, and for both genders, Leggo has the almost unique facility of being all but indestructible, and no matter how many modern concepts they release, a Leggo blog from fifty years ago is 100% compatible with a new Leggo piece bought today. In this commodified and disposable world of ours, that's admirable and impressive.

Five thumbs up for the good corporate citizen that is Leggoland!

(Hmm. Me thinks Microsoft could learn a thing or two from Leggo.)
