LEGO at Valdemar Slot

Sailboat Daniela
A small sailboat was built by my Italian teacher, Daniela, following my verbal instructions (many of them consisting of No, no, no. Non cosė.). I designed the boat on the fly, so it is not that complicated a construction.

The collection of the toy museum at Valdemar Slot includes quite a few LEGO products. The photos here are from when I visited the museum on August 7th 2005.

Most of the cars (not all according to my father), as well as the road-plate and the buildings are LEGO products.

Matchbox cars - LEGO style

Some Matchbox-like cars from LEGO.

I think these are the match-boxes the LEGO match-box cars came in. It looks like they can do double duty as garages.

My father explained that these sets were typical to use as birthday presents between kids back when he was a kid.

Supersize LEGO

These supersize LEGO bricks are made of a kind of foam. They are not too bad to use for building, even if they don't stick quite as well as modern ABS bricks. The supersize bricks are supposedly intended for use in kindergardens, but they are OK for older kids too.

Non-brick stuff

As you can see, LEGO has produced other toys than just building bricks.
