This is only a tiny fraction of what was in my son's bedroom. And in the basement bookcase. And in the attic.
In the old days, my boys built Legos constantly. They even saved a few of their proudest spaceships ...
The Star Destroyer ...
The Death Star ...
But now my children are older and I wanted to get rid of the bins of Legos that remained. I knew I couldn't just throw them away! First of all, they probably don't decompose. Second, how could I deprive some other kid of all that fun?
Magically, I found Brickrecycler. Actually, it wasn't that magical. I just googled it.
Anyway, you can box up your Legos (no need to sort or include instructions) and send them to Brickrecycler. They will contribute them to needy schools, orphanages or other programs throughout the world.
Just imagine all that Lego clutter in your house being enjoyed by boys and girls in a tiny African town, or in a refugee village in the Middle East, or in a teen program in the U.S.A. Not to mention how tidy your kids' rooms will be. Marie Kondo will be so proud!

Ahhh ... the memories.
