I agree with you. Just having a go at growing my own pineapple. (In Sydney ).

Tried Bananas but inedible , hard as wood.

But Guava is good.

Jeebus. . . .BOTH of my Female progeny LOVED bloody LEGO when they were of that age. . .I suffered greatly on multiple occasions treading on their carelessly dropped bricks whilst barefoot . once to the extent of falling most of the way down the stairs at our house in the wee small hours whilst crossing the upstairs landing for a . . .wee. . .the pain was exquisite. . .and quite possible how they learned some very bad 'Cuss Words' in a normally NON- Cussword household. . .

 

Legoland has a lot to answer for. . .

"Legoland has a lot to answer for. . ."

It has, as it was "stolen" from the Poms. who invented it as a demonstration piece for their new Injection molding machine.

What did your urologist have to say about the pain?

Ah bloody Lego....

 

I discovered some in the bathroom as i stepped out of the shower but a large copy version with holes in the top of each round bits.

 

My softened foot got eight deep holes when I stood on it.

 

Oh the pain, oh the language. I bleed everywhere.

That night I collected all said killer fake Lego and with a beer in hand burnt the evil stuff in a fire.

 

Mecchano then became the choice and far safer.

It started as wooden pieces by the Danish inventor, so not sure how it was stolen from the poms.

The shape of wooden Danish pieces, were not the same as the plastic we know today as "Lego"

BUT the shape IS the same as the poms invented to demonstrate complex injected peace,

The Dutch buyer merely made His smaller, to get around copy law.

Must admit: Not all I read is correct.

"These bricks were based on the Kiddicraft Self-Locking Bricks, which had been patented in the United Kingdom in 1939[10] and released in 1947. Lego had received a sample of the Kiddicraft bricks from the supplier of an injection-molding machine that it purchased."

If you were a kid in the 1950's you might remember Bilda Brix.

There was a book of designs which was called” what to build and how to build it with Bilda Brix” but I liked building Egyptian pyramids.

Apparently the Patent owned by LEGO has expired, so the market is now flooded with inferior examples of REGO.
