    Even I was a LEGO maniac (except I didn’t have hundreds of thousands of pieces).

    Now that’s the kind of inspiration I like. Only it’s going to be confounded by any of the other posters following me reading this strip.

    I had smooth wooden blocks in very simple shapes, but they were an entire village or the rooms in a palace variably and my 2 dolls and 2 stuffed animals were the inhabitants (sometimes) and the various marbles (many sizes and colors) were people when that did not suffice. We kids spent more time outdoors playing various things; I mostly remember follow the leader as I was the smallest (my brother did not play with the rest- too small). All these kids lived in our immediate block – some siblings.

    When I started with them they were called “American Bricks” and were made of wood (or something like it)…

    No, they were bricks. Made by Playskool in the 60’s to 70’s. They were not the Lincoln Logs which were actual wood pieces like real early American timber houses. The got the name Lincoln Logs due to Abraham Lincoln growing up in a wooden cabin and becoming president and were much earlier to American Bricks. Lincoln Logs were invented by John Lloyd Wright and actually based on the foundation of the Imperial Palace in Tokyo.They are still in production where sadly American Bricks went out of business over taken by Legos and such.I personally remember Erector Sets which were my favorite.

    Except for the religious overtones, this is just a beautiful sentiment.

    I like the basic idea, but not the shoplifting. It was (still is) a serious offense in our family. BTW, I remember having wooden Lincoln Logs as well as tinker toys.
