Articles about Lego, Lego sets, events and films

Are there any children who haven't played with Lego? I can hardly imagine it, because we spent ages with these little plastic blocks. At that time the selection was of course still very limited, because robot kits such as Lego Mindstorms or Lego Boost were far from available.

For children today, Lego themed sets from Lego Minecraft or Lego Star Wars are likely to be in great demand. I have been able to assess the quality of these sets several times because my son is both a Star Wars and Minecraft fan. The sets have been developed with great attention to detail and are fun to play with later on, as they do not fall apart.

My articles on Lego are not only about Lego sets, but also about films, funny constructions and events on the topic.
