It's hard to believe we're 4 days into Advent already! Today we've been treated to builds which compliment Day 3's. From the Friends Calendar is a hutch (maybe?) with Christmas wreath and carrot, and the City Calendar has a chair with table lamp and plant. It's really disappointing that some 1x1 round plates weren't included … Continue reading Lego City and Lego Friends Advent Calendar – Day 4
Today's Lego City gift sees the return of the cosy fireplace - last time it appeared was in 2013. The Friends gift is a white bunny, with a little snow slope to slide down. I don't know why but I find this ridiculously cute - my 2 year old loved playing with this too.
Nothing special or new from Day 2 of either calendar. The Friends snowmobile looks clunky, and we've seen the kid from the City calendar umpteen times before - the only highlight for me is the bright light orange snowboard, and that's only because bright light orange is my favourite colour.
Behind Door 1 on the Lego City Advent Calendar is this cute, little toy train - in my opinion the perfect example of a great advent calendar build. Day 1's gift in the Lego Friends Advent Calendar is a very Wintery looking Stephanie, with what I'm guessing is a Christmas list. Why oh why can't … Continue reading Lego City and Lego Friends Advent Calendar – Day 1

One look at the way the … Continue reading 2,000 Lego Sets Stolen From Fairybricks

#5004934 - Seasonal Christmas Ornament, or as it was advertised on argos.ie, Lego Christmas Tree. And look doesn't it look lovely? But wait a minute... Looks can be deceiving, and of course I should have read the description: Build a LEGO star to place on top of the cardboard Christmas tree, then have fun … Continue reading I Bought It So You Don’t Have To

Just imagine getting to do work experience at Legoland. 7 year old Stanley got to live that dream - and all by his own initiative! Stanley applied for a position for a Stand-In Model Maker that Legoland Windsor had advertised, and while they couldn't consider him for that position, they did offer him a day's … Continue reading 7 Year Old Lands Work Experience Gig at Legoland!
It's our hobby but for over 18,000 people Lego is their livelihood, so this is really not good to hear. For the first time in a decade revenues have fallen at Lego. According to today's Financial Times: Revenues fell by 5 per cent in the first half to DKr14.9bn ($2.4bn) while operating profit dropped 6 … Continue reading Lego to cut 8% of workforce
