Bricks and building blocks has always been a piece in every childhood memory and for generations Lego has played an appeal to children that will never outgrow even as they grow old.

My love for bricks and mini-figures started when I was 6 years old. I remember my dad, by then a Oversees Filipino Worker (OFW) in Saudi Arabia, bought me my first Lego set and are stored in a red bucket shaped like a Lego brick. I was fascinated with the bricks and what I can build them with. I can build houses, jet fighters, bridges, anything. I am limited only to my imagination. I remember I used to stack a square (2×2) brick into another rectangle (2×4) brick and imagined it was a car. For just two bricks I have created a car, Amazing!

Lego Bucket
My first Lego set are stored in a Lego-shaped bucket like this one.

Then my dad bought me a second set, with cityscape theme and has mini figures. I was even fascinated with the brand. Miniature trees, people, bicycle, and even a dog are fun to look at and play with. Since then, I started wondering if there is a Lego mini figure for everything. I wonder if there’s a Lego ship, airplane, robot, or even a Batman.

Lego at that time was very rare to be found in the Philippines, in the province in particular. Plus, sets are very expensive so there were no addition to my two sets.

Now that I have a source of income and I have a son to play Lego with, I have once again relived my love for these tiny pieces of joy.

Below are some photos I took of my Lego minifigures and some MOC’s (My Own Creation).

I was at the same age of my son when I had my first Lego set, a gift from my father. And now my son is starting to get fond of Lego. What goes around, comes around.
