Last year, my son Isaac fixated on one of his stocking stuffers -- a head lamp. He would not take that thing off. He wore it to explore the (finished) basement, turned lights off in other rooms just so he could play in there in the dark and even had to be dissuaded from going to the bathroom by a single bulb. I thought it was a fluke, brought on by the coincidence of his dad having his own, Marine Corps-issued, head lamp at hand when we opened presents with him connected to us from Afghanistan via Skype.

The beige-plastic Wilkins-Rogers Mill is unmistakable, as are the red B&O Freight House and the purple Obladi hotel. Rendered in toy building blocks, the replicas of historic Ellicott City landmarks lend an air of authenticity to the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum's newest train garden, a 360-degree, custom-built feature that is proving to be a major attraction on Main Street. "This is definitely something unique," Tom Hane, site manager at the Ellicott City Station, said of the display by the Washington Metropolitan Area Lego Train Club.

Lego, went on the offensive yesterday to shoot down what he called "preposterous" speculation that the company might be headed for bankruptcy court.Mr. Lego expressed disappointment in his company's third-quarter results, which were released a week ago, but said he had no idea how rumors concerning a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing got started."Any rational analysis of our financial condition could not support such an idea," Mr. Lego said in a lengthy statement regarding Westinghouse's financial health.

Everett A. Lego, a Shaolin Buddhist monk and martial arts instructor, died of pneumonia Aug. 18 at Union Memorial Hospital. The Hampden resident was 74. Mr. Lego, who was known as Ed, was born in Hampden and attended city public schools before he left in the late 1940s to study in Taiwan.

He lived briefly in New York City before returning in 1956 to Baltimore, where he owned and operated a men's hairstyling business.

REPORTS THAT suggest 1,000 acres near Baltimore-Washington International Airport are being scrutinized as a future theme park site should not be surprising. Perhaps more eye-opening is the fact that so few successful amusement parks lie in the densely populated Northeast corridor, particularly in the 200-plus miles between Hershey Park in Central Pennsylvania and Busch Gardens and Kings Dominion in Tidewater Virginia.For Denmark-based Lego Group, Anne Arundel County represents a return trip.

NEW YORK - There are dreams. And there are dreams. Nathan Sawaya has had both, some attainable, others seemingly impossible. Sawaya has dreamed of building wonderfully intricate structures out of Lego blocks, and then he has done so. A life-size Han Solo, frozen in carbonite. The Major League Baseball logo. The pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. All materialized in Sawaya's mind at one time or another, and now all exist as Lego realities, thanks to an imaginative 30-year-old Manhattanite with a child's heart.

Amy Lynne Shelton has a closet full of toys at the Johns Hopkins University cognitive psychology lab: Wooden human figures with movable joints, Lego and model train buildings, toy cameras and wooden triangular blocks — some with eyes, some without. Each has its role to play in research shedding light on the possible relationship of social grace and sense of physical space, work that might eventually help people who suffer the social difficulties common in autism spectrum disorder. Shelton, an associate professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, led a team that has published results in the Journal of Experimental Psychology and is ready to submit for publication a fresh round of trials adding new variables — and new toys — to the experiment.

Things are tough out there on the mean streets of Blocktimore, or so we find out in the newest spin on "The Wire" -- done this time entirely with Legos. Yahoo gets the credit for Baltimore redone like Lego-land, a funny bit just released online Wednesday. Just about everything from "The Wire" is in the four-minute short. The drugs. The corruption. The cops that enjoy a few drinks. There's Omar, with two guns. There's McNulty toting a very big bottle of something alcoholic.

News Roundup •••• Sony launched the PlayStation Vita on Wednesday in North America and Europe, and analysts are predicting it could actually be a hit for the beleaguered company despite slowing sales in Japan. [ Los Angeles Times ] •••• EA Sports' “NBA Live” franchise, which was briefly “NBA Elite” and then briefly non-existent, will be back for a 2013 edition. I hope EA just caves to “Linsanity” and throws Jeremy Lin on the cover.

For as long as the stories that make up the Bible have been written down, their authors have been adapting them in varying ways. From the Hebrew Bible to the St. James Bible to more recent versions such as the Precious Moments Bible and the Extreme Teen Bible, the text's sacred stories have been tailored for different audiences. The oddest new addition to this genre may be The Brick Testament (Quirk Books, $14.95), 10 stories from the book of Genesis "re-sculpted" using Lego toy building bricks.

Grace Frankenhauser anxiously rubbed her hands together, as her brother, Christian, watched a needle powered by a robot they had built out of Lego blocks move above its target. Their other lab partner was too nervous to watch. With a small crowd gathered around and video cameras rolling, the needle zigged and zagged across a square of strawberry Jell-O. The needle stopped directly atop a grape buried a few centimeters below -- successfully completing the first stage of their mission. "Yes, we did it!"

Minutes before their motorized robot made of Legos was to be judged in a competition, the students from Cecil Elementary School ran into a big problem. The front-loader plow that enabled the robot to push objects over a tabletop course had disappeared, temporarily removed, then nowhere to be found amid a high school cafeteria overflowing with Lego pieces. The timing could hardly have been worse. But it proved a temporary setback for the Cecil fourth- and fifth-graders, among 10 teams of elementary and middle school students competing Saturday at Digital Harbor High School in an opening round of FIRST Lego League of Maryland's annual competition.

Yes, Lego makes trains. And no, there's no telling how many thousands of bricks went into the making of this particular train garden. Abe Friedman smiles as he recounts the most frequent questions he's hearing this weekend at the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum, where an amazingly intricate and wondrously expansive Lego creation is kicking-off this season's Holiday Festival of Trains. Each weekend through the holiday season, different model railroading clubs will be setting up train gardens in the museum's roundhouse.
