It's May so technically we're at the start of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere, but here in Ireland it's lashing rain, so what better time to talk about Lego Friends Snow Resort. While we got some sneaky peeks from the Toy Show's earlier this year, official pictures from Lego have just been released, and for … Continue reading Lego Friends Snow Resort Theme
April brought not one, but two Gilmore Girls projects to Lego Ideas - and that's got me feeling all First up Stars Hollow Gazebo by MrsBrickKnight. Lots of the main characters are included: Lorelai and Rory of course, and also Taylor Doose, Kirk, Miss Patty, Luke, Sookie, Jackson and the town's Troubadour. There's loads … Continue reading Lego Ideas – Gilmore Girls
This work by bricksare4me looks like it's straight from an interior design magazine. Beautifully photographed, the use of sunlight filtering through the windows makes this build feel very real. This build was uploaded to Lego Ideas but has now expired, however you'll find more gorgeous photographs by bricksare4me on Flickr and Instagram (@bricksare4me) PS: Doesn't this … Continue reading Lego Modern House by Bricksare4me
Were you lucky enough to get your hands on #40252-1, the free mini VW Beetle promo!? Thanks to triple VIP points which made me finally pull the trigger on getting #31065 - Park Street Townhouse, I did! It's a cute little thing isn't it! But for me it has one major flaw - it looks great … Continue reading Making the Free Mini VW Beetle Minifigure Friendly!
How fantastic is this? #1. A Loaf of Bread - by W. Navarre. A vignette of the scene in Les Miserables where Jean Valjean steals a loaf of bread. I love how much detail has been packed onto a 16 x 16 plate, there's a real sense of claustrophobia and panic - the narrowness … Continue reading Les Miserables Vignette by W. Navarre
The title says it all really! Right now until April 23rd you'll get TRIPLE VIP points in Lego stores and S@H! Time to pull the trigger if you've had your eye on Assembly Square! There's also some pretty nice deals on Disney Princess sets, and free delivery (to Ireland) on orders over €20!
I couldn't just pick just one standout project for March, so here are three that I think are all worthy of becoming a Lego Ideas set. First up is Sleepaway Camp Cabin. Sleepaway Camp Cabin by Beebs042 really is a fab little set, and would be ready to hit the shelves just as it is. … Continue reading Lego Ideas – March 2017 Pick(s)

Finally! Finally after Ninjago, Chima, Star Wars (and more!), a Lego City Magazine!! So are we going to see what the good (and not so good folk) of Lego City get up to in their everyday lives? Visiting the museum on their downtime. Maybe enjoying a slice of pizza from the Lego City Pizza Van … Continue reading Lego City Magazine
Yesterday The Rambling Brick shared a great and very detailed post about Minidolls & Minifigures and the differences between the two. Friends is one of my favourite Lego themes, and Friends sets are a great way to include some real world buildings (that aren't Police or Fire Stations) into a Lego Town Layout. I buy quite a … Continue reading Little Lego Changes
