Lego Ironman in all his glory!

I remember seeing an episode of Malcolm in the Middle where Dewey and his dad were building a Lego town. It had a government and everything.

One week left until The Lego Movie.

Just took the kids to see the Lego Movie.

At first, I was a bit put off by the "stop motion" look of the film. But after a while, it grew on me. It gave the movie character like the animation of Dr. Katz and Home Movies gave it character.

Lots of great cameos from some awesome properties that Lego has partnered with in the past, and great voices moving the story along. Who knew Morgan Freeman and Liam Neeson could be so funny?

The movie was just great. Funny, clever, and heart warming as well. Everything a movie like this should be. I highly recommend it!

The Little Girl from the 1981 LEGO Ad is All Grown Up, and She’s Got Something to Say

This is my problem with new LEGO. 

“In 1981,” explains Giordano, “LEGOs were ‘Universal Building Sets’ and that’s exactly what they were…for boys and girls. Toys are supposed to foster creativity. But nowadays, it seems that a lot more toys already have messages built into them before a child even opens the pink or blue package. In 1981, LEGOs were simple and gender-neutral, and the creativity of the child produced the message. In 2014, it’s the reverse: the toy delivers a message to the child, and this message is weirdly about gender.”

Sure, LEGOs have saturated the toy market with every license under the sun, but you can still get "just plain old LEGOs" at just about any toy store. The market is there, or they wouldn't make them.

We no longer live in a world that fosters creativity. But it's still there if you know how to bring it out.

I'm glad to hear that at least the plain bricks are still easily available.  Not having kids, I haven't been in a toy store for a long time.

Saw some regular builder sets in Walmart last night. It was nice to see they still occupy shelf space with all the licensed stuff.
