Go Miniman Go!

Surprising as it may be, this year marks the 30th anniversary of the Lego Miniman. (Legos themselves date back to 1958 for the version we all know and love, but in reality started out as wooden building blocks in the mid 1930s). To commemorate the life and times of Lego’s never ceasing adventurer-tradesman, they’ve put together Go Miniman Go! featuring a short film detailing his more famous exploits.

Watch ‘Go Miniman Go

I can’t say I know anyone who doesn’t have even a passing fondness for Legos, and I’m super pysched for when my girls are old enough to graduate from oversized Duplos (which already hold no small degree of fascination for them) to Denmark’s best export.

    I normally let it go, but a quality site such as Transbuddha should be setting an example. The plural for “Lego” is “Lego”, NOT “Legos”. It is like the word “equipment”.

    For example:

    A piece of Lego

    Two pieces of Lego

    A pile of Lego

    A box of Lego

    A shit-load of Lego

    Also, the correct term for a pre-packaged box of Lego specifically for a certain model or models is a “Lego Set”.

    Ah, but here in the US we do things a little differently.

    I know, you call trousers pants, pants shorts, petrol gasoline and chips french fries. I should be grateful you don’t Lego “Freedom Blocks” or something similar.

    PS – I deliberately de-capitalised “french”.

    PPS – please insert the word “call” between “don’t” and “Lego” in the above comment. Doh!
