6:37 am
including mine, can get into it. >> some lego sets have as few as 77 pieces. but london's tower bridge set at 492 pieces. what happens when the kids leave bricks all over the floor? there's a sweeper for that. it makes picking it up a whole lot easier. dan got hooked while playing with his son. now he's also a master builder. >> there is something satisfying about putting something down, snapping it together. there's something inside our brains or something that says, oh, that's good. we have control over that. i made that. >> in san jose, david louie, abc7 news. thousands of people are expected to attend the 61st sausalito art and wine festival this weekend, despite the bay bridge closer. more than 265 artists from all over the world will be displaying their works and wine from vintners and plenty of music from acts like dave mason and the english beat. also lisa marie pressly.
