Today Legoland California begins a nine-city, nationwide search for a seventh "master model builder," a fancy title for someone who gets paid to play with toys. The wages won't support a glamorous lifestyle – the position pays $13 to $15 an hour to start – but for some it ranks high on the list of cool jobs.

Fifteen an hour isn't too shabby if I get to play with toys all day....:)

That's not quite right - you (or whoever bought the kits) were paying for the pleasure of playing with those little bricks.....
Cool job if you asked me...akin to sculpter.By the way, although that is a fairly low starting wage, think about the thousands of people who live here and pay less than that.A studio is not thousands and thousands of dollars. It all depends on what part of town you live in. A studio in Escondido down the road might go for $600/mo*** This post was edited by janfrederick 11/13/2003 1:15:02 PM ***
Being an employee of the Lego Company and an avid Lego collector myself I have known about this little employee search for well over a month now. This is really a great opportunity for the people who do end up getting the job. There are endless opportunities for advancement, free travel and lets not forget it's FUN!
Other than that I used to have lots of fun at Silver Dollar City at the Kids Fest at the Lego Building Track where you had to build the fastest car and then roll it down the drag strip. I used to spend a few hours playing with them at SDC. The idea is to build a Car that is Aero Dynamic and Durable. If it wasn't ethier of these you most likley lost. Alot of times the cars just fell completly apart becasue it wasn't built durable enough. They didn't have the lego track at this years kids fest but they may bring it back next year. I have seen them do this before. I belive that SDC owns those legos.
OH BTW, I have been combining my Legos with my Knex coasters set so I could have the suspended cars on the set. *** This post was edited by Sawblade5 11/14/2003 1:18:38 AM ***
