What is the type of toys like Lego called? Is it toy bricks? And what is the opposite of "cleaning up" the toys?

Cleaning up?  #849002

Do you mean picking them up, to put them away?
In Britain,  #849004

Lego (and similar things made by other companies) tends to be called Lego in everyday speech :-)
(Plastic) construction bricks?

Toy bricks are generally wooden and don't stick together, although one piece of Lego is a Lego brick.

Opposite of clearing up/tidying away the toys - making a mess with the toys, spreading the toys out all over the floor?
I wouldn't say that there is really an opposite action that is deliberate, it's more a result of playing with things in my experience.

When children create a mess in their room, don't you say that they have to "clean up the toys"? There are almost 90 000 hits for "clean up toys" on Google: Google: living room kitchen
Or,  #849010

"Pick up your toys."
I would say tidy up/away, or possibly clear up, depending on the situation.  #849012

Pick up is not used in this sense in BE.

Clean up could be used if more than just moving the toys from one place to another is involved, e.g. paints.

Google: living room kitchen - but 124 people obviously use it :-)

But I'm still intrigued by what you mean by the opposite of that.

I meant what you just wrote: making a mess with toys. It was enough for today. Goodnight to all of you (or at least to those who live in my time zone)
G'night.  #849016

"I have miles to go before I sleep."   (Robert Frost)
Night-night, and don't forget to put away the Lego!  #849018

Lllama is spot-on for BE

In America the lego things are apparently called "bricks". In Australia they are "blocks". In the UK?
Google: "toy blocks"
Thank you  #849023

As I said up above, it's usually Lego brick in the UK.  #849061

That's also what Lego use on their UK shop website -

1. LEGO is always written in capitals.
2. LEGO patented it‘s bricks as “toy building bricks“ and calls it‘s product simply “bricks“
3. The term “block“ is only used by copycats like BanBao or Mega Bloks.
4. LEGO copycats are also called Lego clones (where you don‘t have to use capitals because it‘s not official).
5. Yes, I do work for LEGO now and then.

Kids need toys that exercise their minds and imaginations.  I suppose LEGO fits this category.

I was fortunate to have a medium size Erector set.  I could make most anything.

Google: erector set
Thanks again  #849084

Great set! Over here that would be "Meccano" - a much less impressive name :)
Yes, I'm sure you could!  #849200

Sadly, "I could make most anything" doesn't have that nostalgic echo in GB English :)
