If you’ve been living under a rock, like I have apparently, you will have missed this announcement coming out of the New York Toy Fair 2016 earlier in March. If you’re a fan of the LEGO Creator Carousel (10196), the LEGO Creator Expert Fairground Mixer (10244) and the LEGO Creator Expert Ferris Wheel (10247), you should be happy
Two weekends ago, I took the girl to the LEGO Friends Building Event I mentioned earlier last month. If you didn’t catch the post, it was an event celebrating the launch of the new LEGO Friends Adventure theme. Every child attending got a chance to build a LEGO Friends Campfire set. We had seen a
Last year, LEGO hosted what seemed like a one-off LEGO Friends Building Event. It was the only one I remember them having all year long. Looks like it did pretty well as LEGO decided to repeat the event this year on Saturday, February 13th. What Is The Building With LEGO Friends Event I found
If you haven’t made a LEGO Friends purchase yet this month, you have today and tomorrow to do so, so you can get this awesome little polybag. If you want to check out what you get in the polybag, here is our LEGO Friends Pop Star Carpet review. For those of you who missed this announcement,
Earlier this month, our LEGO store had a LEGO Friends building event. While it was on our anniversary, we took the girl to build the LEGO Friends Piano. Cheaper than a babysitter… I mean, it’s not like we were going anywhere special or anything… Originally, I thought the two builds (piano and drum set) would

We’re still working on sorting the 400+ pounds of LEGO bricks from this past weekend (and honestly, that will probably be our life for the next two weeks). So of course, we’ve come across a few pieces we didn’t recognize. When I can’t find a part number for a LEGO piece, I generally go to
I have this conversation a lot when I’m with my husband and I run into the LEGO Stephanie’s Beach House set… Me: I really like the set. Him: Yea? Me: Yes. That yellow color calls to me. Him: So buy it. Me: I can’t. Him: Why not? Me: Because I’m really annoyed LEGO used those
I had big plans to blog this holiday season. Wanted to share our winter village setup and what LEGO events we attended, but family comes first. This blog is called “The Family Brick” after all, and I wanted to make sure I attended to family. So you may get a flurry of Christmas related blog
In between all the Christmas preparations, shopping for family and wrapping presents, I didn’t get as many auctions and listings up on eBay as I was hoping for.

October is V.I.P. Double Points Month at LEGO! If you’re a veteran LEGO fan, you probably already know that. So like any good LEGO fan, we’ve been planning out our purchases for double points month at LEGO. Traditionally, LEGO releases the first part of their exclusive LEGO Creator holiday sets in October… and we *need*
I’m a little ashamed to say it, but I really like LEGO Friends. Set aside all the stereotypical girlie stuff… all the hair brushes, lipsticks, makeup mirrors, etc… and they’re just plain fun.
