Happy birthday, LEGO brick!     ‹ Back to portfolio
Photo of Happy birthday, LEGO brick!
Very crunchy. Only 100 calories.        3,500 LEGO elements.        Completed January 28, 2008
50 years ago, the 2x4 LEGO brick was born. In honor of the momentous occasion, Sean used LEGO bricks to build something that looked like a cake that looked something like a LEGO brick. It made sense at the time.

Birthday Cake, Happy Birthday LEGO brick!

Sean baked the LEGO cake too long, because it was very crunchy. Sean's dentist is happy about this.

It seems odd that, although Sean has been building and playing with LEGO bricks for 30 years, that the LEGO brick itself is even two decades older than that. It's like a grandparent... or perhaps more like that weird uncle that brings fruitcakes on Thanksgiving.

Make a wish! I wish for 50 more years of LEGO bricks.
