Immaturity Unlimited - All Aboard!

Aloha Playmates!

Welcome to the ALL LEGO Post

Click on Photos to Return to Childhood.
I always wanted a Medieval Market Village!

“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.”

OOOOOO! Only $109 USD !

“I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things... I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind.”
Leo F. Buscaglia

Miniature Village People!

"Macho Macho Toys. . . .I Wanna Play with Macho Toys."

See the reflection of my giant camera & hands?

“Play is the only way the highest intelligence of humankind can unfold.”
Joseph Chilton

Giant Camera Hands Looming Over the Casting Call

“You can't have everything. Where would you put it?”
Stephen Wright

Arg! $109 USD again! The Pirate Ship comes Separately

It is better to play than do nothing.

Choo Choo!!!!

“I didn't get a toy train like the other kids. I got a toy subway instead.
You couldn't see anything, but every now and then
you'd hear this rumbling noise go by.”
Stephen Wright

Ala Moana Shopping Center now boasts it's own Lego store! If you are in Honolulu on August 15th you can join the youthful throng (of all ages!) oooo-ing and ahhh-ing over a major exhibit of Lego-built wonders at center stage.

But listen here, if you are anything like me, do yourself a favor and stay away from the L Store itself!! I don't remember playing with anything like the exciting and detailed products I saw in the place!

Like most Hawaii residents, we live in a rather compact space. I got as far as the cash register with my "Pirate Ship & Hideout" and an amazing green locomotive before I snapped out of it!

The diminutive scenes of city life on display, and the legions of distinct little Lego people populating them, made my head swim with their detail and complexity. You could happily drop some major bucks there; so if you DO go, bring your credit cards, and perhaps a child or two for "cover."
