Lego Anniversary

We are “toying” with our final list of ideas for the theme of our Christmas tree for the Festival of Trees in November. On Monday we hit upon the ultimate idea, but then Jeremy posted Tuesday about The LEGO Company.

Coincidentally, this week LEGO released a beautiful animated film in honor if the company’s 80th birthday explaining the origins of this most creative toy. The 17-minute short celebrates the hard work and genius of the founding father and son.

We thought about a gold 50th Anniversary tree and a 50th anniversary of James Bond tree. I think people would love an 80th anniversary LEGO tree!

There are plenty of figures we could make and hang on the tree. My sons have unlimited quantities of the bricks they could donate to the cause (equal to and surpassing the number of Barbie shoes most girls have in their toy boxes); however, giving up the stash of tiny toys might take some arm twisting.
