Lego, I never did get you.

1980 Lego Ad

For most young boys, if you ask them what their favorite toy is, the answer will be something like, Lego Star Wars, or Lego Batman, Lego Anything is popular these days.  Lego has cartoons and video games, and all of those awesome Minifigs (The Little Lego Guys). 

     Last weekend I bought a Lego Creator set at an estate sale. The creator series includes buildings and objects in kits to build.  The set I bought was a Lighthouse.  Set 5770 LightHouse Island.  I knew that if I wanted to sell it on Ebay I would have to put it together  and make sure it was complete.  I was never into Legos as a kid, and as I started working on this set I started to remember why.  After three hours I got the 518 piece lighthouse together, including rotating electric light, mini boat, and the light house with opening door.   This set is kind of cool because the pieces are made to look like the lighthouse, but I just could never get my legos to look like anything except a square building.  Maybe because we didn't have all of these fancy figures and different shapes in the 70's and 80's.

My hard work.
