If you have been a reader for any time at all, you know by now that I find taxonomies of alternate topics very intriguing, and I wasn’t disappointed by this latest find.

Popsci¬†brought this intriguing find to my attention in their post, “A Taxonomy Of More Than 4,000 LEGO Figures.” Using science to classify toys may seem trivial to some, but toys are as valuable to some as animals, plants, or chocolate.

The creator of this comprehensive taxonomy shows great creativity, and the impressive attention to detail is commendable. They also created a catalog based on the system, and it features an interactive map.

This very thorough categorization would be even more dynamic if they could manage to encourage children to keep them their LEGOs this organized, or organized at all.
