Photos: A golden anniversary for Lego | CNET

CNET reports: "On Monday, Lego is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the day it filed its first patent for the iconic plastic brick. Since the beginning, Lego sets have been themed, and the very first theme was space. Not long afterward, Lego added castle and pirate themes. One of the first major elements of the 'System of Play' was the Lego Town Plan. To celebrate the 50th anniversary, the company is releasing a new, updated commemorative Town Plan this year. While updated, it includes '50s-era elements like a gas station, car wash, and garage, plus a movie theater and, of course, a town hall."

Lego were a big part of my childhood, and now they're major part of my son's childhood. There are very few products I can really say this about. I hope Lego goes on for many more decades...
