    There is a toy/matchbox collector store down here that sells Lego's by the scoopful. I'll see if I can scrounge up a name for you if you wish.

    Then why more? :D

    Back in the day, OH MAN!! Lego and Erector were a blast. My kids got to enjoy them growing up too. Mine are tucked away for the grand kids. Over the years, friends and relatives on the lookout to grab them up. My Lego collection (last I counted :confused:) is over 10,000 pieces. The Erector bits, I've all I can do to lift the wood lined crates. Will never sell them. Just pass them along in the family ;)

    I could easily talk and reminisce of the fun I had with them. Problem is, I'd soon have them all over the floor!! I remember building the Golden Gate Bridge that was over six feet long and 3 feet tall. And that was done with all the old school stuff. I still have my Lincoln Logs. That's another fun one.

    Diecast, that's another subject. The toys are addictive!!

    My daughter is a big fan of Lego's - mostly the 'girl' Lego sets. What I like about them is that she's building each kit herself. I helped her with the first two, and now she can follow the books and build some somewhat complicated setups. She also enjoys mixing parts to make something new.

    As for buying used Lego's, if you ever find yourself near Canby, make the time to stop in to "Bricks and Minifigs" It's a Lego store and they carry bulk loose Legos for sale, and also have some pretty cool builds on display by local builders. There is also a place for the kids to play in there.

    I have 90 pounds of Lego I'm in the process of sorting. I was intending to sell it on e-bay. Actually, I was using it as a learning exercise for the kids on how to sell things.

    If you are looking for something specific or just want more Lego than most kids can manage then send me a message.

    My best friend in the early seventies was originally from Germany and his Grandparents would send him giant boxes of custom Lego sets for Christmas.
    It would take us weeks to build these sets and when we were done, his Dad would make us tear them all down, because they took up the whole floor in his basement den.
