The Learning Power Of Lego

Over 400 billion Lego blocks have been produced since it was introduced to the world, and it has become a leadingforce when it comes to teaching children logic and a bunch of other useful knowledge that we all have at some point come to use in our everyday life. Lego is no longer just a block meant for play, but also a great tool when acquiring knowledge in various areas that we previously only had a pen and paper to elaborate our ideas on. I guess some of the block’s success lies in the extreme research and development phase that initially lead up to its official release and patent in 1958. There was extensive research done in order to create the ultimate design for theproduct. There was also the challenge to find the perfect material for a long lasting toy that could be used over and over again without ending up as a broken piece of plastic. I can’t state it enough, but Lego really is the solution to everything.

Man proposes to girlfriend with LEGO stop animation short

Now, this is one for the ages: back in 2010, Atlanta film-maker Walter Thompson created a jaw-dropping LEGO stop motion to propose to Nealey Dozier, his girlfriend of four years. The video took 22 hours of shooting and some 2,600 pictures to splice together, a small sacrifice to pay for years of happiness together. Right? Right! Oh, and she said yes. Bonus.
