Welcome to Pause Magazine's LEGO Reference Guide!

If this is your first visit to our LEGO-related web pages, you may be asking "Why would anybody go to the trouble of creating dozens of web pages and nearly a thousand pictures of LEGO sets?!" There is no simple answer.

As a child, one of the few gifts I remember receiving vividly was my first LEGO set. It was in 1971, and it was a gift for my sixth birthday. It quickly became my favorite toy, and I would spend hours creating new and wonderful things with those bright plastic bricks. What could have been "just a toy" for many people became a pasttime for me. Later it became more of a hobby, or a collection...especially as I got older.

There have been several periods of time during my adolescent and young adult years during which LEGO was the furthest thing from my mind, but eventually, I rediscovered the joy of building with LEGO and creating in the real world things which had previously only existed in my imagination.

LEGO toys foster creative thinking, problem solving, good tactile motor skills and many other positive activities. They have always been made with an eye for whimsey and attention to quality. They are unique in their worldwide mainstream availability coupled with some of the highest production standards in the toy industry.

If you have young children who have never played with LEGO, it's never to late to start. Even just a small set can encourage and extract so much creativity from your child. And while the price of LEGO toys has gone up over the last 20 years or so, in both the short and long term, it's worth the price.

Thanks for visiting,
