It may feel like you already have a tonne of LEGO in your house - especially when you step bare-foot on one of the bricks - but this is really a story about 1000 kilograms of the stuff.
The Green Shed at Mugga Lane tip is having a massive charity LEGO sale on Saturday, January 20 from 6-9pm.
It has, literally, a tonne of LEGO to sell, with all proceeds going to the Canberra Hospital Foundation, which raises funds for equipment and research for the hospital and to enhance facilities for patient and family-centred care.
The LEGO will be sold for $30 a kilo, first in, first served. Although some restrictions may be applied as news of the sale on Facebook has already sparked big interest.
Boxed sets will be priced based on average bricklink sales. Special manuals will be priced and others just sold with bricks.
About 40 per cent of the LEGO has come from the tip or been donated to The Green Shed.
The other 60 per cent has come from the personal collection of Charlie Bigg-Wither, he of the famous Lego House in Turner.
Charlie is also co-founder of The Green Shed.
He has been collecting Lego for 30 years but reckon it's "time to let it go".
"I guess I just don't want to be a hoarder and it's taking up a huge amount of space," he said.
The Green Shed hopes to allow the Canberra Hospital Foundation to buy one of the big-ticket items on its wish list.
Close to $530,000 has already been raised for charity by The Green Shed.
The Green Shed is accepting further donations of LEGO for the sale.
And LEGO is not just about building stuff.
The Reputation Institute earlier this year released the main findings of its 2017 Global CSR RepTrak 100 report, which showed LEGO was considered as the most responsible company worldwide.
