It's often said the best type of toy is the one that keeps on giving for many years to come. If that's the case, then Lego blocks definitely sit very high on that list. Take this wicked cool, life-sized District 9 Arc Gun made from Lego blocks. It just oozes of awesomeness.
For reasons I will never understand, Nickelodeon's Spongebob Squarepants is a huge hit not only with the tots, but with grown adults. It turns out the obnoxious little yellow sponge who lives under the sea is actually a Terminator robot in disguise!
You can build some pretty crazy things out of Lego blocks. Starships. Space stations. Terminators. So, why not real houses?
Legos are pretty great. And the clever folks at SXSW know this all too well. So, they transformed part of the Austin Convention Center into a Lego pit so fantastic that the owner of Legos might even break into a gleeful giggle at the sight of it.
