24 Incredibly Creative And Practical Uses for LEGO

Chances are you’ve heard of and even owned some of the incredibly popular children’s toy LEGO in your lifetime! LEGO has been inspiring children for decades, allowing them to be creative and clever all at once, and encouraging kids to imagine what it’s like to be an architect, an engineer, an inventor or one of many other fantastic careers.

Created by Ole Kirk Christiansen in his workshop in Billund, Denmark, LEGO began production in 1949. Since then, over 560 billion pieces have been produced, which is at least 62 bricks for every individual person on this entire planet! There are also six theme parks dedicated to LEGO and play-sets that cover almost every media franchise from games and movies to books and sporting events. There are even some LEGO bricks floating around in space because in May 2011, 13 LEGO kits  were taken to astronauts so that they could build models and study how the bricks react in microgravity.

Every single thing about LEGO seems to be both inspired and simple. Even the word LEGO is wonderful, as it comes from the Danish phrase leg godt, meaning “play well” and a standard LEGO brick can withstand 950lbs of pressure, which is about the weight of an average moose. It’s no wonder then that children and adults alike all around the world are inspired by LEGO and have come up with various ways to use the nifty little bricks. In fact, the only bad thing about LEGO is that standing on one with bare feet was voted the most painful thing a human being can experience, second only to childbirth!

Whether you want to brighten up your home, teach your children mathematics or craft some geeky jewelry, you can do anything you want to with LEGO. To get your imaginations rolling, here are 24 wonderful creations people have crafted using just Lego.

                                                      If you make your own coffee in the morning, chances are you’re only making the same boring kind everyday. Now it’s time to put an end to the cynical habit and turn you into an instant coffee connoisseur.

                                                      For those who don’t know, there are officially 38 different ways to make coffee. All, except decaffeinated versions will give you the same buzz that can either make you extremely productive or give you anxiety.

                                                      The only difference here is taste. And when it comes to coffee, taste matters. A lot.

                                                      Most of the methods and ingredients from the chart above dates back hundreds of years and have been traditionally passed down from generation to generation. Hence, it’s actually possible to tell where a person came from based on the type of coffee he or she drinks!
