Evening all you Master Builders out there. Everyone loves a bit of LEGO (which I am reliably informed must be written in caps lock), well, everyone who doesn’t walk around barefoot in the dark. There’s pretty much nothing better than building something amazing out of dotty bricks, the most amazing thing to come out of Denmark since bacon and er… OK, those two things are the only things.
In my mancave I’ve got a massive pile of giant LEGO bricks that contain pretty much all the LEGO that ever. Usually my LEGO sessions with the kids are an hour long with about three hours of tidying up afterwards, and most of that time is spent building rectangles or finding the lost head of LEGO Thor (who incidentally looks a lot like Noel Edmonds). If only there were something helpful to provide some inspiration when LEGOing the LEGO, all LEGOey like.
…the new LEGO Awesome Ideas Book. nigh on 200 pages of ideas for things to build, ranging from houses to spaceships, from monsters to pencils, all sorts of funky stuff.
But, I know how much of a curmudgeonly old man I am, and you lot really don’t want to hear me chunter on about how good this book is. You really want to opinion of the target audience, kids. So, having no idea what sort of shenanigans they would get up to I let Jess and Meg do their own review, with added building based activities.
Without further ado then, I present Jess and Meg with their awesome review…
…and that’s your lot. That’s edited down from 45 minutes too, so count yourself lucky I am all swish de swoosh with the editing.
You can get your own copy of the LEGO Awesome Ideas book HERE and if you feel the urge to buy a bunch of LEGO, if you go to Zavvi’s Lego shop using THIS LINK, I make money or something. So I’m told. So there you go. Double pimpage. Go and brick yourself.
