    We were just talking about how legos have changed over the years. I don’t remember my brother having any but my oldest son played with them for hours on end.

    These are actually called “American Bricks”, and were not made by the same company as Legos are. I found an interesting history here. Thanks for reading and commenting, Apple.

    It’s a pity they stopped making these. I’m not a big fan of the color riot that is Lego. I was looking at the gallery at that link, Pam, and the buildings are so attractive with the simple red and white color scheme. Wish I’d had a big bag of these when I was growing up!

    They actually look like bricks. If you saw Papa’s comment on FB he said that he can still make a killer building with them, and he can. :>). Our oldest daughter, the civil engineer, wonders if the whole building thing going on when she was a child contributed to her career choice. Who knows?
