Totally Geeky or Geek Chic? Lego Robotics

The First LEGO League had a booth at Maker Faire this weekend and the huge crowd of women, men and children enthralled by the presence of robotic LEGOs. The First LEGO League is an international program for children that combines a hands-on, interactive robotics program with a sports-like atmosphere. The group's popularity got me to thinking, are LEGOs really one of those toys that transcend geekiness and are universally considered chic? Or are they just another toy we all love because they remind us of our childhood?

I bought my husband that set for Christmas. It goes along with his $300 Lego Star wars ship. The bigger the boys, the more expensive the toys...

The new lego Mindstorms kits are *HOT*. Uses bluetooth for communication, need to try writing an app for my PocketPC and phone that'll let me drive around a lego car! \o/

I, at 26, still play with my legos, all of which I still have from childhood, and my 32 year old cousin, who is male, wants me to sell him my legos. I refuse, and he is jealous of my awesome collection! ha! buthis wife recently bought him a big star wars set, so he has laid off. haha.

Legos are cool. I had to use those robotic legos in 9th grade Geometry, it was fun! Oh, and I love Transformers too, colormesticky!

Ugh, when I was a kid I was in one of those "gifted programs" where we had to do stuff like this ... build cars out of legos and attach motors to them. We were graded on how far our cars went. I've been traumatized ever since. It seemed like legos were EVERYWHERE at that school.
