Young or old, almost everyone loves Lego. If you admit it or not, you do. For the few that have never played or built with Lego, perhaps they won’t understand the draw that Lego can have, but I am sure they will appreciate the art and the skills of the builders from these sites.
Incidentally, I have a three year old son and it is his fault that I am writing this article. He has rekindled a passion for the small brick that I had forgotten since my own childhood.
These sites are amazing sources of inspiration, that will fill you full of creativity. I especially like the sites that offer a little touch of wit.
