Lego, Walmart celebrate toy’s 60th anniversary by rolling back price to 1958

Ah, if Legos cost what they did back when they were first introduced. That may be the dream for parents of little builders who must have the millions of tiny bricks.

That dream will become a reality starting this weekend.

Walmart has teamed up with Lego for a promotion to celebrate Lego's 60th anniversary by rolling back the price of its Classic box and a sand-colored base plate to the classic price of $5.65 for both.
