I realize the Lego vs Megablok debate is silly to those who didn't grow up with Legos. For those of us however who were members of the Lego Club from an early age, it's a very legitimate argument.You can say they are just pieces of plastic, but consider that statement for a moment. Go back to your childhood and think of something you enjoyed, by yourself or with friends and family and how much that hobby affected how you turned out. For me Lego was a very real escape, into a land of wonder and adventure. Legos were quite literally the building blocks of my creative development.Not to mention the fact that Lego isn't just a brand, it is the standard by which many toy companies compare themselves. During the early 80s to early 90s no other building block company could even compare with the diversity of pieces and imagination presented by the developers. When I think of innovation, I don't think of Steve Jobs, I think of Kirk Christiansen and his family who founded the company.
