Be Careful What You Wish For

Have you discovered Wish yet?

It’s an Aladdins Cave of everything and anything that you could want.

Plastic plants – Check!

Real plants – Check!

Lepin…..ahem.

 

I don’t want to buy Lepin, or Mega Blocks or Bloctech either for that matter, but there are some fun LEGO related items for sale on Wish.   The kind of things that make perfect Christmas presents for any AFOL’s (along with an obligatory LEGO set of course!)

fLEGO APPAREL

First up are my favourites – LEGO ICONIC HANDS YELLOW

I mean how practical are these!?  Ideal for keeping your fingers warm on a winter walk – just maybe not so good  for scrolling through your phone…

 

LEGO Minifigure Hand Gloves

 

Next up, and great for the non-AFOL in your life that constantly complains about ‘stepping on LEGO’, the incredibly catchily titled

PERSONALITY LEGO BLOCK DESIGN LOVERS SLIPPERS ANTI-SLIP HOME INDOOR SLIPPER SHOES

Phew.

 

LEGO Block Slippers

 

NEWEST HIPSTER MENS FASHION LEGO BURGER PRINTED T-SHIRT FUNNY SHORT SLEEVE T-SHIRTS NOVELTY O-NECK POPULAR TOP

Another product with a great title.  They even label what each brick is supposed to be – how convenient.

LEGO Burger TShirt

Okay this next one is quite fun – or maybe not depending on your view of things.

FUNNY DONALD TRUMP BUILD A WALL LEGO COOL MENS BLACK TSHIRT

fLEGO FOR THE HOME

CRISTMAS KITCHEN BUILDING BRICKS STAINLESS STEEL KNIFE SPOON CUTLERY UTENSIL SPOON SET

Stainless steel even!  Just image scrubbing the stuck on gravy from those handles…

PS:  That typo is not mine!

 

LEGO Style Cutlery Set

This one is especially for those who really really love LEGO.  Can you image how happy you’re non AFOL loved one would be to come home to this DIY!

And you’ll definitely need these on your doors to match your new, great looking stairs:

“What I remember most about BLOCKS”

The ideal journal for any AFOL to write their block related memoirs.

 

 

And for highlighting all the important parts of the memoir above – some cute, stack-able highlighters.

 

fLEGO FIREPOWER

This next one is actually a little bit scary – it’s pretty realistic looking  (though this is coming from someone who has never seen a gun in ‘real life’).

It can even fire Mung Beans.

 

 

And another fLEGO gun – look at those bullets!

So how do you feel about products like these?

Do you think they’re crossing a line?  They are infringing on LEGO’s brand of course.  Just because the products listed above aren’t bricks they’re still benefiting from the culture that LEGO has built as a brand.

There’s a lot of hate out there for fake LEGO, and rightly so in my opinion.  But when it comes to silly, fidgety things like those above I’m a bit more lenient.

However when it comes to my bricks I’m a purist – it’s LEGO all the way.
