A Boomer’s Life Before Legos — 5 Comments

  1. An Erector set, hee. The jokes just write themselves.

    You should see So Cal — in addition to Lego Land in Carlsbad (San Diego County), Downtown Disney, the shopping district near D-Land, has an entire Lego store. It’s nuts.

  2. @Cather Her In The Wry: Erector Set! Of course I had an erector set. How could I forget? But all those little nuts and bolts! I agree, coolest of all.

    @Gretchen: Yeah, it’s world-wide! DWorld has a Lego area – or did the last time we were there. Seems that having all these complicated Lego structures would freak a kid out if he just had a few hundred pieces.

  3. Are you thinking of Bill blocks, or Mebbs educational building blocks?
    Around late 50’s early 60’s. Little clay blocks that look alot like the legos we have today.
