I don't know how many legos I've swallowed over the years.

I think it's okay to swallow Legos, just as long as they eventually pass. If not, you're going to have all kinds of potential problems. Those things probably decompose at a very slow rate and may emit PCBs or chlorofluorocarbons or something else that is not healthy.

I know how many I've swallowed. Zero. They were not allowed in my house. Stepped on one too many while babysitting as a teenager, and some things stick with you. No Play-doh either, and my sons survived.

That's a good point. Very few things hurt more than stepping on legos.

stepping on metal jacks. But those were probably before your time .

I didn't even know they had a "lego" store . That's cool but I'll have to wait for grandkids now.

I think that Lego bricks promote creativity in kids, permit the discovery of their own powers of imagination and fantasy. They create endless hours of shared fun for kids, their friends and whole family. New pieces and sets are added all the time, new themes designed. There are Lego’s for boys and girls. The Lego range has expanded to encompass accessory motors, gears, lights, sensors, and cameras designed to be used with Lego components. Large bricks (called Duplo) are produced for little kids; more sophisticated pieces for older kids include trains, ships, robots, pirates, racers and many, many more. What’s interesting, that Lego bricks from 1958 still interlock with those made in 2010, and Lego sets for young children are compatible with those made for teenagers.

I used to bring Lego’s from Germany, but now I am happy to think that there will be a Lego store in San Antonio.

Legos are awesome. Just not in my house.

My younger son did get a bunch of Bionicles one year, but he was older by then and knew to take care of them. He still pulls them out every now and again and messes with them.

But honestly, a kid isn't going to die without Legos in his life.

What I don't get though is the whole point of those LEGO video games. Like this one:

I mean...some people have fantasies about playing video game characters that are made of LEGO?

LEGO MY EGGGGOOOOOOOO!
