    My mother-in-law has a huge suitcase of Lego , from back in the day when it was just different size blocks , not all in sets like now .

    Anyway , every year around Christmas she brings it out for the grandkids , and me and my brother-in-laws all pretend we're not that interested , except every year we end up playing with it for hours .

    haha :D

    I voted Legos before I read the post,I played with the erector sets. When I was kid there were not many plastic toys. My son is 32 and still plays with legos, but they cost a whole lot more than sets we bought him. It worked out real good for him he went from a lego city on a 3 x 8 table as a kid to designing building for a living. It's pretty bad when you have to pay $200 for a kit.

    ^ Yeah, too damn expensive now. Hardly paid for them myself when I was younger, but I'm sure all the sets I have would sell for a lot more these days.

    Legos for sure.

    When I was about 5 or 6, my parents signed us up for a Lego building contest. The winner was a group of people who built a scale replica of a White Castle. The guy next to us built a monster truck.

    The next day, my dad's friend who's company sponsored our team came over and brought us a galvanized trash can full of Lego parts. I had a lot of toys growing up, but I don't think I played with more or had as much fun as I did with Legos. (Okay, maybe Transofrmers)

    To this day, my brother wants to be a LegoMaster. We're even pretty convinced the whole Bionicle series is stolen from designs he sent in to try and get a job.
