I'm New to Brickpicker and happy to say I'm impressed with this site. i posted some pics if you want to check them out?

Forgive me as I may over share, but I think it's about time. 37. Female. Boston metrowest suburbs. SAHM since 11/2009 when I had my fourth (and last) daughter and childcare would have been more t

I would just like to know how old everyone here on Brickpicker is plus what gender. Just wondering if there are a bunch of youngish men/women or oldish men/women. Thanks. &#13

I'm 41 and a male from the USA. I have loved Lego's since I was a small child. I have been collecting heavily for the past couple of years and have a nice collection started. I'll post pictures eventually as I learn more about the site and get comfortable using it. Looking forward to getting to know some of you all.

Hi, i’m new here. Got into lego two years ago again with my son... now i’m an AAFOL (Addicted Adult Fan Of Lego) with a growing collection... i’m been lurking around for a while so figured it was time to join so i could contribute as well.

Longtime AFOL here, fan since age 6, new to brickpicker. No true dark ages but I definitely had a "dim age". Was tuned into AFOL community well enough as a teenager in the aughts to know that I better guard my at-my-parents-house collection with my life, even if I wasn't into it. That instinct definitely paid off. Reclaimed the whole ~40K bricks of them a few years ago and haven't looked back since. 

As another rare woman here it seems I find myself yet again in a male-dominated field, no surprise there (I'm in tech in the real world).

Welcome aboard…there are definitely a few gals here! I've been on BP a little over a year, and have found this to be a fun, collegial, and very helpful group of folks.

Wow!

Well, Hello!
I'm new here, but not new to Lego. Got my first set at 5 years old.
I'm 46 now.
And as a female, I seem to be in the minority, lol

Hello, female here too. 47, didn't get my first set until I was 42 LOL Now I feel I may have too many sets

I'm 47 and my first set came from the year I was born 1973, the steam shovel. I often ponder over who in my household bought the set at that time, did my dad buy it as a age inappropriate gift for myself, was he a fan of Legos and his mid-twenties, or did it belong to my uncle who lived with us and was 16 at the time? I asked my uncle he never saw the set, so I'm guessing it was my father's. Anyway I still have it on my shelf now

Oddly, I feel as tho I should post as I turn 47 this year (double checks w/ calculator).

I received my first set when I was in the 5th grade as a Christmas present from the aunt who gave presents (not money)...it was a medium size space set; I received a 2nd medium size set a year later (I think) but that was it....two sets to play with daily for years...until about 2 years ago when I "made up for lost time...with a vengeance"

I turn 47 in a couple months as well :)  My first LEGOs was the 80’s space set 483. It was a gift my parents gave me at the hospital after having my tonsils removed when I was 7.

I held onto that set for many years and it found its way into the mix of technic bricks during my teenage years. I brought the bricks with me when I moved out of college and traveled half way across the country. 

My wife was a school teacher for K-2 special Ed. She took the bricks to her classroom for the kids to play with. Most of them got lost during those years. But

I still have a small container with assorted bricks and I can still identify those from the original 483. including a space man with very little face left, a computer terminal, and some moon buggy wheels with rusting metal axles. 

I’ve been tempted to seek out a 483 on eBay to buy and build again. My wife might have her tonsils taken out here after COVID. Maybe it’ll be my gift to myself for her tonsil removal :)
