A young man with Asperger's saved up for two full years to buy a rather exensive Lego set.

...only to find that by the time he'd finished saving up for it, the set had been discontinued and was now going for outrageous sums of money online.

Someone sent the Lego Corporation a letter about the matter.

An employee found him that set and sent it to him for his birthday.

Cool, eh?

That's a wonderful story.  Hoorah!

Knock and the door shall open.  It's not my fault if you don't like the decor.

I can recall playing with Legos way back in the day.

My kids -- little ones to teenagers, still love 'em today.

It is the individual who wrote the letter that deserves the credit. Lego, of course, responded as any great community-minded corporation would. But they do have to be advised of these opportunities.

Great story. I can certainly relate. Have loved Lego my entire life. 55+ years old and still enjoy building Lego castles on occasion. The old 1978 yellow castle #375 is my all time favorite, but it's going for two arms, a leg and a first born online.

"creationism" ... 2000+ years worth of ABYSMAL FAILURE ... and proud of it.
