I have very vivid Lego memories from childhood. If anyone of you were born in the early 80s in the Boston area, you may remember the Lego room at the Children’s Museum.

Either way, it was one of my absolute favorite places. So needless to say, the new Build with Chrome site is one of the best things I’ve seen in a long time.
