Happy Birthday LEGO

Today marks the 50th birthday of the LEGO brick. For some reason I didn’t think that the “toy of the century” — as declared by by both Fortune Magazine in the US and the British Association of Toy Retailers — as being only a decade older than myself since I grew up playing with LEGO bricks. My friends and little brother would make scale representations of some of our favorite television shows including M*A*S*H*, Taxi, and Happy Days.

To celebrate the anniversary, LEGO is offering a commemorative re-issue of the Town Plan set

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the modern LEGO brick with this special-edition update of the classic Town Plan set! Completely redesigned with the best of modern bricks, details and design, the all-new Town Plan features a 1950s-style gas station with pumps, carwash and garage, a town hall with a newly-married couple, a movie theater with ticket booth, seats and posters, 2 automobiles, 8 minifigures, rare LEGO colors and elements, and more.

If I only had an extra $150.00.
