I don't think you can name a more iconic toy than the LEGO.

That was certainly a hot take, but seriously. What other toy has kids, adults, and professionals "playing" (building and crafting) for their whole life?

No toy has the longevity the LEGO has and will have.

Even if you do not build LEGOs now (or never did as a kid), seeing what some LEGO masters can do is jaw-dropping. From 20-foot dinosaurs to operating ferris wheels, LEGOs are far more than a kid's toy.

I mean, there is a TV show called LEGO Masters, and some of the builds are serious pieces of architecture, remakes of famous people, and even replicas of the world's most famous paintings.
