Posted by PartyWeDo on Monday, November 23, 2009

What is the Dirty Brickster?

Posted by PartyWeDo on Sunday, September 27, 2009

Excellent question…  I had to find out, so I Google’d for the answer…lego
It seems that there is a group of serious Lego aficionados that have adapted the traditional white elephant gift exchange or Yankee Swap into a Lego brick exchange.
OK… did you know that Lego pieces were called bricks?  I’m of Danish descent and I always thought of them as blocks not bricks.
