Lego® has provided the building blocks of many children’s early years. Since the 1930s children have been making houses, zoos, boats, space rockets and whatever else their imaginations let them form. These little blocks of plastic have however evolved: it seems that children no longer have a carrier bag full of the multi-coloured bricks but rather have specific kits to build a Millennium Falcon, the Guggenheim Museum or a Batgirl Secret Bunker. These are very impressive end-products indeed, but there is a little part of me that is saddened by the lack of creation by little hands of structures reflecting some of the fantasy, imagination and visualisation of their amazingly open minds.
