The world's largest LEGO display at a museum in Illinois features over one million bricks.

One Of The Greatest Toys In History

In my opinion, one of the greatest toys of all time has to be LEGOS. When I was a kid, I would spend hours playing with them and building massive structures. I had a huge crate filled to the top with bricks and accessories. I am not going to lie, it was pretty impressive for one kid.

Back when I was growing up, the LEGO sets were pretty basic. I usually just created my own projects. Nowadays, the whole world of building things out of the bricks has definitely taken it to the next level. In some cases, they are considered works of art. It is amazing the things they can put together.
