How did it start?

Recommended Posts

OK, this might be silly, but what the heck!

The photo below was taken in April 1961, a couple of weeks after my 4th birthday, I am still too small to sit on a chair normally, so I have to sit on my knees, and I am playing with... LEGO!

That's how it started for me! -smile-

Take care,
Simon

I think most people start their Lego Experience by smashing parent/sibling built DUPLO towers. being to young to actually be creative enough to build on their own. I wouldn't be surprised if that was how I started but I don't remember.

Unfortunately in Poland there were virtually no LEGO except in PEWEX shops (you had to buy with US dollars, while average pay was around 20$ on black market course - US dollars were available only on black market). That's why most of today AFOL's had to start their collection of lego for themselves at around 1990 when iron curtain fell and LEGO was in normal distrubution. :)
