The first day of each month is a theme day for City Daily Photo, and for April that theme is My Favourite Toy. See how others are taking on this theme here.
In the Rideau Centre mall downtown there's a Lego store, selling everything from the basics to some highly customized kits.
This Lord of the Rings set is the sort of thing you'd put together and then have in a display case, featuring Lothlorien, a kingdom of elves, featuring prominently in the first book and movie.
This chalet appealed to me. A friend and colleague bought a Lego Titanic last year. I've told him that Lego needs to release four versions: the one he has, the version with it hitting a Lego iceberg, another version with the ship splitting in half with hundreds of Lego people in the water, and a final version with the wreckage and debris field at the bottom of the ocean.
Here we have the Iron Man Hulkbuster armor, in Lego form.
Another one that suited me nicely.
This Star Wars Lego set is from The Mandalorian series.
This one intrigues me: a Lego Colosseum.
Or a lighthouse.
Or for you gardeners out there, these two.
Here we have Lego of the Harry Potter world.
More Star Wars. From the size of the kits, these are the sort that kids can put together and take apart over and over again.
With this- the Millennium Falcon- once you've got it together, you'd want to keep it together.
The same thing with Batman's Tumbler, as seen from the Dark Knight trilogy by Christopher Nolan.
Not Lego, but also something for passing the day away- jigsaw puzzles in the front window of a store in the Byward Market.
And lastly, since I'd spent time photographing in that Lego store, I felt compelled to buy something. And so I bought a couple of Lego keychains- Winnie the Pooh and Eeyore. I can relate a lot to Eeyore.
This is a fabulous post of so many Lego toys!ReplyDelete
Lego is a wonderful invention. I once cared for a young man with learning difficulties who was obsessed with the Star Wars kits. Despite not being able to read, he could figure out how to build them from the diagrams and, unlike me, he didn't have to orient the model the same way as the drawing. Just watching him do it gave me a headache!ReplyDelete
I always liked Lego as a kid.Delete
Lego has come a far way!ReplyDelete
We once had a Henry (of course), sadly he fell and the pieces went everywhere. And sadly it was just a small series, so we could not buy another...
Lego is quite specialized.Delete
Wonderful shots, William.ReplyDelete
I gave my girlfriend a bouquet of Lego flowers a few weeks ago. After fiddling with it for hours, it resulted in a nice bunch of flowers in a vase.
I saw Lego flowers recently in another blog.Delete
I think that Lego is eternal. When future archeologists excavate ancient sites they will consider it totemic!ReplyDelete
The Lego toys are very popular. My great nephew loves them. Have a happy weekend.ReplyDelete
They certainly took off.Delete
Lego is a very ‘in’ thing. Our neighbour has built several big and intricate star wars sets.ReplyDelete
Not a surprise. I liked that Falcon.Delete
...I wish that I had invented the Lego!ReplyDelete
Whoever did gave the world a gift.Delete
I had no idea there were so many different kits. I like the key chains you bought.ReplyDelete
They appealed to me.Delete
It's very creative.Delete
I have memories of my kids' legos getting lost in shag carpets, and stepping on them with bare feet. I do like your key chains!ReplyDelete
Wow! What a delightful post and photos of Legos creation ~ they are amazing ~ great key chains you bought ~ Winnie is my favorite ~ Eeyore ~ too ~ReplyDelete
Wishing you good health, laughter and love in your days,

What a wonderful collection of Legos. It's amazing what you can build with legos these days.ReplyDelete
Lego use to be so much fun when I was a kid, we got given a box of it from one of my aunts, just never ending fun.ReplyDelete
It sparks the imagination.Delete
Great theme and photos!ReplyDelete
Now I want to buy a Lego kit.
So many great creations out of Legos.ReplyDelete
A good many.Delete
My daughter is 22 years old and still buys/builds with legos. One of the best toys out there, I think.ReplyDelete
Lego is awesome. Like the Lord of the Rings and the Colosseum in particular.ReplyDelete
I am considering having a go at that Colosseum.Delete
Hope you show the finished model here when done.Delete
Time will tell.Delete
I love seeing these creations. There's a Lego store in Rockefeller Center in NY. I love seeing their creations in the windows.ReplyDelete
No doubt it catches the eye.Delete
Lots of potential for fun captured here.ReplyDelete
We spent a fortune on Lego for the girls. That is until we realized they didn't like playing with it after!ReplyDelete
Yes! I am a huge Lego fan and pretty much everyone in my family is too, which is good or shall I say a bit too easy to keep up with our very own huge Lego Store at the Mall of America! This was wonderful!ReplyDelete
These are super cool. Our six-year-old was putting together a Lego thing and I went to help. I was flummoxed but he just rolled through it!ReplyDelete
Not a surprise.Delete
