Both the boys are LEGO mad. We have a house full of models that they have built. Things very rarely seem to get unassembled again. And I wouldn’t like to count the number of times I’ve trodden on a piece of LEGO. For something so small, it really hurts. So they were both over the moon when we received a free copy of the new LEGO Awesome Ideas book to review. Their existing LEGO books are really well thumbed, especially the LEGO Star Wars encyclopedia.
I had a good look at the book too and it has a wide range of ideas for both small and big LEGO projects to make. Each chapter is based on a theme encompassing outer space, modern metropolis, the wild west, fantasy land and the real world.
Although we have loads of LEGO the boys said we wouldn’t have all the pieces needed for any of the projects, so I expect they will be asking me to buy more LEGO. I suggested they improvise by modifying the designs slightly. So that is what they did. Son 2 made a sweet and a lamp-post whilst son1 made a chocolate. Looked very realistic, but give me real chocolate any day.
LEGO Awesome Ideas is currently retailing on Amazon in hardback for £11.89 compared to an RRP of £16.99 and is published by Dorling Kindersley. A great value book in my opinion, jam packed with projects, although I noticed that a lot of the bricks in the gallery don’t look like the standard ones we have in our LEGO collection. However never fear, as we have ordered individual LEGO pieces in the past from LEGO.com when we’ve lost an important brick.
