LEGO Memories…

I doubt there are many children in this world that don’t know what LEGO is or have not played with it before.

I was fortunate to have an ice-cream container full of LEGO. I used to build spaceships and cars with rocket boosters and used to race them around the bedroom carpet. Hours would pass in a blink of an eye while playing with LEGO. I see that the bug is starting to bite my son as every time we pass the LEGO shop at the local mall he wants to go in…

Anyway, when I saw an official LEGO USB Drive, a Lego door stop and historical figures out of LEGO, I just had to share these finds with you!

LEGO Brick Door Stop (Cost: Wool and 8 Coke Bottle Tops)

I am seriously thinking of asking one of my 3 wives (Eliska / Sandy / Keka 🙂 ) if they will knit me one of these.  Seriously how cool is this.

Lazyastro over at Instructables has a full on step by step on how to make one, and  all that is needed is:

  • 1x Brick
  • 1x Ball of Wool
  • 8x Plastic bottle caps
  • Some thread
  • Someone that knows how to knit…

Head over to Instuctables to download the instructions –

Historical Figures made out of LEGO

I stumbled across a website called UrbanTitan that had an article on historical figures that were made out of LEGO. According to the article:

In 2007, Fine Clonier ran a contest that invited people to create historical figures out of Legos… They’re all pretty fabulous… Incidentally, the Mark Twain design above was the overall contest winner. Pretty deserved, I’d say – that hair is spectacular.

Check out the official website on Flickr – but for the meantime see if you recognize these three:
