Parents give Legos to their kids for many reasons. Probably there is a small secret hope that it will keep the little ones entertained and bring some quiet to the home (for at least a few minutes). But the main reason I'm sure is that parents remember how playing with Legos fired up their own imaginations - you can build ANYTHING you want! Seeing the Lego models of famous buildings and structures reminds us that what starts off at an early age as just a dream, can eventually soar and become an inspiring reality!
The exhibit is at the National Building Museum, Washington, D.C. through Sept. 2012.
