Did anyone ever join the lego club when they were younger? I remember being really impressed by it as a kid because they sent you out an impressive birthday and christmas card every year, as well as a letter from the owner of the company, along with a magazine and various stickers and patches. There was more too, but it's been so long I can't remember.
It was free too, and I remember they kept sending me stuff for years and years, but then they stopped, probably 'cause I had never replied to anything or actually bought anything.

But I remember being dead impressed with it all.

My brother and I were members, there was a badge that I wore on my school uniform for ages. We're talking 20 years ago now though, I cannae remember all of it, but like yourself, I was amazed by the coolness of it all.

moi aussi!

One of the biggest indulgences of my young life. Took me weeks to save me pocket money and then my parents paid half. It was all worth it!

Still have the badge somewhere was a great idea though

Hello, I'm new here, but this thread caught my eye.

I was a member of the Lego club too. I treasured my little square badge and enjoyed reading the news letters etc. And the stickers - what is it about stickers when you're a kid?

My room was a Lego temple ! Town, Trains, Castle, Space - It was all good. I'm glad kids today can still enjoy it.

Bye for now, Rich

I sure was. Yet no cards ever arrived!
Oh lego! I still have absolutely loads of it left in my attic.
Nearly every toy I got as a child was lego! Loved the stuff. Collected the stuff for years and years!
