|Lego Advert - TV Comic 1972|
It's fantastic to see how Lego has progressed in the last 40 years, all the specialist kits that are available to tie in with films like Toy Story, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Harry Potter etc
The Lego store even has its own equivalent of pick and mix so you can fill a tub of bricks and parts up (and hopefully recover some of those essential parts that got sucked up the vacuum cleaner several months ago).
Early Lego builders such as myself were not afforded such privileges and my mind cast back to the first set I had which afforded me to build a house, a windmill and a few cars. As time went on I inherited a few bits from other peoples hand me downs but it was the 70s and we were cutting edge of creativity anyway - even if the creations were decidedly blocky.
