Lego CAD

Piper and Anthony have been playing with virtual Legos recently.

Lego Factory is a pretty neat Lego CAD system that lets you build models on the computer. Once you design your model, you can order a kit with exactly the right pieces - plus instructions to build your model along with "alternative models" - directly from Lego.

It all looks pretty sophisticated to me, but I haven't gotten to try it myself. As soon I installed the program (it's free), the kids took over the family PC and didn't let Dad have a chance. Even though Piper is only 4, she's been able to use the program. She designed a "Narnia house" complete with a forest and a lamppost.

Lego is really an amazing toy.
