The salon we go to for haircuts moved out of a dying consumerism center (a mall) to a shiny newer bright and busy consumerism center which also has a Lego store. This is important cause it’s the only reason we were in the mall. They have posted at least a dozen Lego statues about the mall along with information on the site, the time it took to build the statue and the size ratio. Like the Liberty Bell was a 1:1 ratio. Apparently I forgot to get pictures of most of the explanations of the statues and I’m sharing pictures of just a few. Side note: each model was built by a team of at least 3. Some people were “master builders.” What are the qualifications needed and the typical salary of a Master Builder working at Lego? Anyways, random blog post about Legos now continues with pictures.
And the Washington Monument.
Few more. Here’s the Jefferson Memorial.
And the Lincoln Memorial.
Then models of the Capital building, the White House and the Supreme Court building were by far the most awesome and impressive. The detail was great. Seeing the kids Ooo and wow and woah at the different models was really nice too. Cute.
Here’s the one close up I grabbed of the White House.
I could have sworn I took a picture of the Statue of Liberty model but it’s not on my phone so I guess I didn’t. A few pictures for the Supreme Court are next.
And the last set of pictures is the Capital building. It’s sad I’m not as familiar with these monuments and important government buildings as I thought. I hope the children – and some of the adults – learned something from these statues. Can’t decide I prefer to call these statues or models. The picture I took of the Capital building model from above
