History


2006 Birthday party exhibit.

Birthday party Lego exhibit

It all started many years ago, even before 2007 , when a young Dutch boy always created Lego displays to show to his parents. Later during his late teens he decided to store his collection and focus on studying.  Just when he was finished studing he got the opportunity to come to the  USA. There he stayed.
Many years later when his son became interested in building with Lego the father decided to bring his own Lego collection to the USA.  Then in 2007 he created his first USA display for his daughters birthday party.

The Daily Review Lego exhibit article

Due to popularity, an other exhibit was created the year after. This time it was decided to invite the public. Two reporters from the "San Leandro Times" and the "The Daily Review" stopped by and published an article about the new exhibit. Many People came. Unfortunately a lot of people had to stand in line, because the room was a little bit too small to handle the crowd.
