What do kids call Lego pieces?

posted by Jason Kottke   Nov 04, 2009

Giles Turnbull convened a kiddie focus group and asked them what they call all the different Lego pieces.

Every family, it seems, has its own set of words for describing particular Lego pieces. No one uses the official names. “Dad, please could you pass me that Brick 2x2?” No. In our house, it’ll always be: “Dad, please could you pass me that four-er?”

Don’t miss the chart at the end.
