Or should grown men not be playing with Legos?

You can build some wicked cool stuff with Legos & I reckon it's just kinda good for the old noodle.

Ever seen a scale house made of nothing but Legos? It's hella cool!

Its better to go to Minecraft instead then you can hide your creative side. Or become an engineer!

it's 2019. Lego has been producing products aimed at adults as well as children for quite a while now.

You don't need anybody's permission or approval to play with your legos.

Why do some folk call Lego "Legos", while others call Legos "Lego"?

Is it Lego or Legos?

I think it's because Lego is really a brand name and a plural word (like "Water" or "Wool") and the correct way of refering to the individual pieces would be "Lego bricks". But people are lazy and so many say "Legos" when referring to the "Lego bricks".

Lego is both singular and plural.

I grew up with Lego and think your're never too old to play with it however Stepping on Lego is not that fun it should have a warning label.

LEGO is alien technology. How else could it be that a piece of LEGO from the 1950's still works with LEGO built yesterday ? 

Plus it's Danish. I mean.. come ON ? What are the odds of the DANES creating such a thing ? Clearly this is extraterrestrial in origin. 

If you still doubt, I can only say one thing.

LEGO star wars set. 

Case closed !

Well I once read that the Denmark has their own spin on the Men-in-Black.

Basically they are very friendly, Scandinavian-looking alien men in dark suits who appear out of nowhere on a specific beach and talk with an (irrc) Norwegian accent. They usually teleport right in front of people and will ask them whether they are in Denmark and what the name of the current King is.

Maybe they are the ones who brought Lego from their distant home planet?

You like spinning tops? Beyblades! I thought it was stupid at first but customizing a beyblade & wrecking 10 year olds with your superior knowledge of physics is pretty fun.

Not with celiacs. It wouldn't end well for the alien.

Nope. I was always a engine mechanic with a interest in planes and starships and liked to improve the design.

I see no problem with an adult making things out of Lego. Adults are the ones who build  that stuff at Legoland in Florida.

Florida's LEGOLAND Is Hiring People to Build Things All Day

Good news for anyone who was obsessed with Legos growing up and who would like to escape the snow: The creative division of Merlin Entertainment, which runs LEGOLAND theme parks worldwide, is looking to hire 20 “Master Model Builders” at their factory, known as the “Merlin’s Magic Making Hub,” in Lake Wales, Fla., a spokesperson tells TIME.   http://time.com/4190556/legoland-hiring-lego-model-builders-designers/
