When we were growing up, my brother had a massive Lego collection, as did my husband. I bet many of you did, too. The love of Legos doesn’t have to stop once you reach adulthood, however. The Kansas City Brick Lab can connect you with other Kansas City Lego aficionados and together you can build something epic!
