It doesn't matter what part of our house you walk in, if you're barefoot chances are you'll eventually end up with a LEGO between your toes. LEGO, where would we be without you? Well, probably with LEGO-less toes but it's a sure thing our kid would be pretty bored.
In honor of their 50th anniversary, LEGO has released a 50th Anniversary Building Set with 700 pieces -- that's quite a bit of potential projects! One of those pieces is the LEGO golden brick (sounds a bit scatological to us) which is a cool collector's piece.
