With the Lego Friends set coming out, some enterprising soul has put this together…
Lego. Is simply awesome. Considering how awesome this house (and myself), reckon Lego is, I’m not sure why I’ve not written a Lego review yet. But there was something about this set, that simply inspires.
Gentle Spoilers for Lego Movie 2 are found below!
Lego Movie 2, introduces us to Queen Watevra. A character who can best be described as a shapeshifter, and therefore appears as many different shapes throughout the movie.
This set is based around that idea.
This is a set filled with many bricks, and instead of just an instruction booklet, there is an “inspiration guide” and a poster, which talks you through the 15 different smaller characters that can be made out of the many bricks you find in the box.
Great for smaller people, who are getting into Lego for themselves. Where with previous sets we’d brought for required “adult supervision”, she seems to get on and really own this one for herself.
If nothing else, it’s amazing to see this level of focus happening, enabling her to build the various colourful characters and more.
Queen Watevra is available from Amazon (affiliate link), but we managed to grab it super cheap from our local Tesco.
“After double checking, it seemed that the Easter Egg hunt hadn’t gone on for 10 days. They were, indeed, only 2 minutes into it.”
Taken during a particularly muddy, but very fun Easter Hunt at Darts Farm in Devon. (Still running till Sunday 15th April)
Found near the front of The Exeter Cathedral in Devon, a smaller Lego based cousin can be found.
A team of volunteers are involved in both putting the Lego Cathedral together, and speaking to members of the public about the project. The website nicely sums up the idea behind the project:
The Big LEGO® Build is an exciting project to help members of the project discover and engage with the challenges of maintaining the ‘fabric’ (buildings) at Exeter Cathedral. Thanks to donations from people like you, we have already made progress towards building a 300,000 piece model of the Cathedral from LEGO bricks.
We popped down to have a look while exploring the Exeter Christmas market. While the small one wasn’t keen on adding a brick to the Lego Cathedral herself, as you can see, she was more then up for exploring the Lego Cathedral. (Possibly at risk of appearing as a giant monster compared to the Lego guys.)
More details can be found on the Exeter Cathedral website.
