If you remember Alphaville’s song Forever Young, you would definitely relate to this Lego blog.
Many of us dread growing old and if we had the power to live forever or be young forever for that matter, we would do so because life, after all, is wonderful. In the world of Lego however, no one worries about getting old. Lego minifigs are blessed with very tight skin that they never look old even if they are decades old.
Those who have made a Lego minifigs in their image or celebrities who let Lego immortalize them by creating custom minifigs are very lucky because one way or the other, they will be forever young and will always be remembered by thee next generation.
This may be something that many of us would like to do, leave a legacy somewhat. We somehow want to leave a mark that we lived, that we were here, that we enjoyed life no matter how difficult our life might have been, that we loved with all our heart, and all that jazz.
This is perfectly natural and this is the very reason why most of us want to have children of our own. It’s not just for the survival of the species anymore; it’s leaving a trace of our DNA behind through our children.
This is something that many people do not think about but once you start dissecting your beliefs and the things you want to do, you would find out that this somehow rings true. In the world of Lego, there are also children –babies in fact. They of course do not grow up nor grow old but this is somehow an ideal that we are passing to our children –that people must have children of their own (even if the world is already overpopulated).
