LEGO lets you play with improving mass transit
Everyone knows that children are the most renewable — though not necessarily cleanest — form of energy. Which means if this LEGO City Public Transport Station weren’t made from little bits of plastic, it would be just about the perfect toy for wee mass transit advocates-to-be.
Will exposing kids to LEGO buses and trams (rather than Hot Wheels) foster little urban planners who will be racing to build transit-oriented communities and not a Ferrari? Maybe not. But a kid can dream, right?
After all, the little kiddos can also add wind turbines to their LEGO livable communities. The next step is for the toymaker to add separated bike lanes to the city streets, and then they’ll be complete.
