      I was one of those "kids" playing with Legos in a waiting room waiting for a prescription to be filled for my mother-in-law one time. No real kids I thought...why not? It was fun! Haha!

      Lego toys are not only good for children developmental motor skills but provide endless hours of fun. Each time they are assembled something new can be built. Imagination, creativity and fun are all combined in each Lego toy set. I have seen them used by kids of all ages in waiting rooms, etc. Lego toys make GREAT GIFTS!
