TeeFury is at it again! They’ve put an awesome LEGO t-shirt in their Twofury matchup. This one features great men of astronomy as LEGO minifigures. In the design you’ll find Neil deGrasse Tyson, Carl Sagan, Albert Einstein, Sir Issac Newton, and Galileo Galilei on a background of the Classic Space logo. As usual, the shirt
The Little Brick loves Frozen… like many a little brick everywhere. So you can imagine how excited I was to read that LEGO was planning on coming out with a Frozen Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Palace set! I only wish, like many I’m sure, that this set was coming out for Christmas 2014. Sadly, the set
When I was reviewing the comments in a post on brick organization that I wrote about earlier this month, I came across a great tip by Philippe of PhiloHome.com on how to separate plates that are stuck together. My method was to stick the plates on another larger brick and use the brick separator to pop them
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*

We’re cheaters. We’ve been cheating on our local LEGO store. We’ve been spending the week in Florida with family… and making regular visits to the LEGO store in Downtown Disney. Our initial visit wasn’t just to go to the store, but also to celebrate the Little Brick’s birthday! Our brick off the old block (hah – I’m so
Mr. Family Brick found the cutest video about the LEGO Disney Princesses last night. Looks like it was posted back in February, but I never ran across it. He put it on the tv and The Little Brick was just mesmerized. Truth be told, so was I! So in honor of Little Bricks birthday (Happy
For my readers around the world who have never seen a Brick Wall, may I present the LEGO Brick Wall from the North Point Mall store: We love going to the store to browse the Brick Wall and play with all the bricks. It feels a little like finding a cave full of treasure and
When I picked up the two boxes of LEGO bricks for Mr. Family Brick’s birthday, we realized we needed a better system to organize our collection. So at 10pm on a Sunday night, we decided to re-organize. Our initial collection was sorted by color. All the blues with blues, all the greens with greens, etc…
I mentioned a few posts ago I received the LEGO Research Institute for my birthday. The other day, I finally got a chance to build it out. If you haven’t seen the set up close, here are a few photos of the builds: I liked that the booklet came with English, Spanish and French explanations combined. Made it feel
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. What I love best about them is they add a new array of bright and bold colors to the traditional LEGO bricks.
Today is Mr. Family Brick’s birthday. (Happy Birthday honey!) Since we scraped the building of the Green Grocer for now, we decided we would try to build the Fire Brigade. So, for his birthday, I spent hours on BrickLink.com, looking for some of the missing pieces (mainly tiles and plates) that have had him stuck
Remember our nemesis, the Green Grocer? Well, we’ve come across way too many missing bricks in our stash to try and build it. We can’t even get half of the first level built, because the pieces we are missing are random here and there. Enough of a structural absence that it stops us from continuing
