A lot of us grew up playing with LEGOs. As we grow older, we eventually stopped playing with the colorful building bricks, but what many people fail to realize is that they can be used in various ways.
LEGOs were originally made in 1947, but they are still very much popular to this day. Not only are they fun to play with, but they inspire people to come up with new projects in every day life. From key keepers to cable organizers to math lessons — LEGOs can be used for anything!
