NYC plays with its LEGO

These days children have a plethora of devices to play with -  Game Boy, PlayStation, Nintendo Wii – to name a few.  Still, nothing quite beats the joy derived from the tried and true plastic favourite LEGO.

New York City opened its first LEGO store earlier this week and instantly engaged with customers and passersby by giving them the chance to help construct a 15-foot-tall model of a Big Apple near its entrance.

Frank Bonomo from core77 explores all the LEGO knickknacks in the new store, including what else but a LEGO video game. There’s also a great video illustrating the giant apple construction.
