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
I may have mentioned it previously, but we buy lots of LEGO from CraigsList. It’s how we feed our obsession and play and build the things we want. The only issue with this is sometimes we get too much of one type of brick. Or we get bricks we just wouldn’t use. Not to mention,
Last night, I decided to take The Little Brick to the LEGO store for the monthly store build. This month, it was the cutest mini racing plane. I was *sure* she would love it. I was really impressed with her building skills. She easily and quickly managed to build the model without major intervention from Mr.
We were in the LEGO store last weekend when we ran across the new advent calendars for 2014. Mr. Family Brick and I have been very excited about buying the City advent calendar, since we’re working on a Christmas village for under the tree. Last year we decided to skip buying any of them all together… and
Because everyone likes to know who’s reading their blog posts, I troll the referrers list in my blog stats. Last night while quickly checking, I found my planetary exploration post was referenced in a feminist argument on the EuroBricks forum. I’m not so much concerned about the gender battleground issue, but I won’t lie that I do like
I’m always looking for a good deal on LEGO sets, although I rarely buy something unless it’s at the local LEGO store. However, I was doing a little bit of birthday shopping for Mr. The Family Brick and found the following three sets on sale for $4.95 at Amazon: LEGO Creator Red Thunder LEGO Creator
I love getting responses back from LEGO builders when I comment on their work. Seeing that they care about their fan base and supporters is pretty awesome. The other day when I mentioned the LEGO Ideas Planetary Exploration set, I went to add my support for the build and left the builder the following comment:
We’ve been wanting to build the LEGO Creator Green Grocer for quite some time now. However, it is a discontinued set and as most of you know, a discontinued set increases in price the older it gets in the LEGO world. We’ve found the LEGO Creator Green Grocer on Amazon for $999. We’ve also found the LEGO

I’m not sure if anyone really ran across this article a week or two ago, but the Consumerist wrote about a mom who left her kid at her local LEGO store for 90 minutes while she went shopping… LEGO stores are fun and amazing places for children, collectors, and for human beings in general. However, there
Last weekend, we made a quick visit to our local LEGO store. We’re in the middle of trying to build the LEGO Creator Green Grocer, but not having much success. Once we went through our stash of LEGO, we only had about 33% of what we needed to complete the build. Then trying to
