you've renewed my interest in the little plastic blocks. http://shop.lego.com/ByAge/Product.aspx?p=10124&cn=100007&d=100001
and so has that.
LEGO's seem to be kinda reasonabley priced, am i crazy to think that? for the hours of hopeful enjoyment, it really doesn't seem all too bad.
now if i can just find my old tackle box full of 'em. man, i used to freak out at the pieces not coming apart as easily as i thought they should. a perfectionist back then too. i always had trouble getting those little bricks apart, nail biting has limited my tools. i used to bite into the bricks to try and pry them apart. now they have a little plastic tool for such things. what progress!
sorry i had problems linking the web address, i'm far from computer savy.
