Two stories in today’s Post about Lego displays: At a center near Dulles, the [mostly] men who have either never let go of or who have re-embraced their love of Lego-building displayed fantastic structures. One man has a $50 weekly allowance to add to his medium; meanwhile his wife takes an annual ski trip. Happy marriages are not all alike.
The columnist noted that in one of the rooms set aside for children to play on their own, 72 children were deeply — and quietly — engrossed in their Lego projects.
Meanwhile, the Building Museum has a display by an artist who uses Legos as his medium. When he first made this decision, he went to the store (doesn’t say which one) and purchased $8,000 worth. Many shopping cartfuls.
