Re: Lego

Actually 'Lego' is simply the brand name - therefore it is a Proper Noun. We just customarily - and incorrectly - drop 'bricks' or 'pieces' when talking about Lego.

You don't play with your Hornby do you? (Unless you use the name for something else, but that would just be wrong).

I'm off to play with my Meccanoes.
