Lego Glossary Lesson

In the Lego community there are a lot of slang words. If you talk to a serious Lego fan, you might get lost in the conversation when you don’t understand all the acronyms they use. In this glossary lesson I will help you to explain some of the common abbreviations. Fans are not only creative to build with the bricks, they are also very good to come up with new fun words. Here are some…..
