A LEGO journey through childhood

Once again, builder Maxx Davidson has treated us to some delightful eye candy, skillfully incorporating not only LEGO bricks, but also other assorted elements that might require a deep dive into the internet to confirm their authenticity as “LEGO-branded.” Titled ‘Assorted Childhood Toys,’ the undiscerning eye would be hard-pressed to identify these as toys built out of other toys. However, the builder has expertly used LEGO to transport the beholder to a place of reminiscence.

Though rare to come by nowadays, this evokes memories of trips to the grocery store. I almost want to ask Mom for a quarter in hopes of scoring a small plastic treat!

It’s hard to imagine anyone who wouldn’t immediately recognize the shape of a yo-yo, isn’t it? This contraption fuses together parts from the LEGO Dots and Sonic the Hedgehog themes into an iconic toy.

While these ginormous jacks are a sight to behold, it’s the use of the Earth sphere from LEGO Technic 42179 Planet Earth and Moon in Orbit as a bouncy ball that really sells it here.

Last but not least, this brings back personal memories of visiting a doctor’s office and enjoying my time while waiting to be seen by my medical provider.

And this is no one-off from this skilled builder. Take a look through the TBB archives to see some of Maxx’s other astounding work.
