#31: Legoland

L is for Legoland:  Featured Post Card for the A to Z Challenge.

My Aunt Sheila sent us this post card when she was visiting Legoland with my young cousins. She had just moved out to Arizona, after growing up in Connecticut and living in Massachusetts for a while (One year, we got to spend Thanksgiving in Plymouth, Massachusetts like the Pilgrims, which was very exciting to a 9 or 10 year old!).

While I’ve never been to Legoland, it sounds like something I would have enjoyed as a kid. My brother and I used to spend hours building things – Lincoln Logs and Legos were some of my favorite toys. I remember trying to build the equivalent of RVs with our Legos – four measly little wheel assemblies with long bodies and tall sides. We didn’t really have many of the thin flat pieces that would allow us to build out and then up, so our ‘houses on wheels’ ended up looking like stadium seating.

I get really confused by all the new-fangled Lego kits for sale now. I don’t think we had any ‘kits’ when we were young – just miscellaneous blocks and accessories. I would be hesitant to even attempt one of the new ones, because I would be worried following the plan would take all the imagination out of it. If I want to assemble something per the directions, I just buy some Ikea furniture!

But Legoland might be something to try when we have kids some day. Located near San Diego, it could easily be added to a trip to Southern California.

  1. Well, legos are the BEST!!! (That, and play-doh. If there was a play-doh land, that would be a lot of fun!). There’s a legoland near San Diego, we never stop by though. =/

  2. We took our boys (then 8 & 10) to Legoland last year for the 2nd time figuring it would be our last hoorah before they’re too old for it. We all thoroughly enjoyed it, especially because now they have a water park attached. Legos are great! If you go in the future with kids, you just may enjoy it!

  3. I don’t have kids, but I want to go to Legoland myself.

  4. I have a fond memory of the Christmas that we got Lincoln Logs, and they were the hit of the holiday. They came in a tall “Quaker Oats” style container, and were almost impossible to get back in. But after my Dad stepped on loose logs a few times, getting everything back into the container was not an option. ~James

  5. Big kid that I am, I had a great time there. 🙂 Our son was always mad about Lego and we’ve been to quite a few of the Legolands with him, starting with Billund when he was just 4 (I needed an excuse to visit Denmark) We did the California one quite a few years later, when we were visiting the Disney park there. Great fun. 🙂
