A Common Nomenclature for Lego Families

Children are rarely familiar with the names the LEGO company gives its various bricks and accessories. Giles Turnbull was delighted to find his son had his own terms for each piece. So he gathered more children, four in all, to find out what names they used, and assembled those names in a handy chart. Link -via Buzzfeeed

It's so interesting to me how they classify these bits. The one kid is pretty much all color. Another highlights the general appearance, a third names the pieces after what he uses them for, and the last is a mix of those two.

Sometimes if the kids have been good we let them spend a fiver each there. You can get a lot of fascinating bits for a fiver.

Excellent! Names were only an issue when communicating with others... My sister and I would ask eachother to "keep your eyes open for a flat 4-way grey", or a "1 by 6 thick blue."
