We remember grabbing a box of these little plastic blocks called Legos and building whatever our minds could imagine. It could start as a series of jumps and tunnels for Bo and Luke Duke to evade Roscoe, Enos and that cheat Boss Hog.
A few weeks later Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker used the same plastic bricks a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away to defend goodness from evil. Then the following weekend He-Man and his cohorts were neutralizing the wrongdoings of Skeletor and defending Graystone Castle.
Through the years Legos served as a backdrop for some pretty important and epic battles, and our parents got some great value from that purchase.
