Lego - the world's best thing?

Last year we went to Europe, and one of the very first things we did after arriving in the UK (other than having a large drink to congratulate ourselves on getting two small children halfway across the world in one piece) was go to Legoland at Windsor.

You really can make pretty much anything with Lego, including the Crown Jewels

OMG, it was awesome, fabulous, imaginative, crowded, expensive, inspiring, annoyingly hilly when you're pushing a stroller with jetlagged kids in it, but all round bloody good!!

We saw a giant T-rex made of Lego, cities and attractions of the world in miniature (including Cape Canaveral and a Space Shuttle that launches), Lego vikings, took a Lego driving test, spent hours in the amazing shop (pricey but sooooooo worth it), went on rides, panned for gold and won a medal, got drench on the log flume even with waterproofs on, made and then raced tiny Lego cars on a special track, and many many other things.  Two days was barely enough time, we could have easily stayed for 3.

Safe to say it was one of the highlights of our whirlwind tour.  We had planned to go to the original Legoland at Billund in Denmark but unfortunately ran out of time on our trip.  Oh well, there's always next time!
