Landmarks in Lego

When I was little, I enjoyed playing with Lego. It's a toy that my brother and I shared. I'd make girly stuff like a little village and he would make cars, helicopters and all those things little boys are fond of. When our youngest brother came along, he inherited all the Lego we eventually outgrew. That was a lot of Lego!

I know adults would love assembling these as much as the kids! They make great souvenirs from a recent trip, too.
