Guess what I got for Christmas? Yep, that is right, some architecture Legos! So exciting. I do love these little buildings, just like the real thing.... Actually I think it was the most genius idea Lego ever had. Afterall, a lot of architects played with Lego as a kid, and have a passion for them. However, I hate the little kits for spaceships and such, who care? But, I do love the build with them. So to make famous landmarks? It is like every little architect's dream. I love mine, and yes, I have even seen them in architects offices before. They are fun! So today I thought I'd do a little review / tutorial thing.
|It comes in this nice box, the picture on the front of what you are going to build.|
|It also comes with this fun little book that teaches you, step by step how to build it, so easy.|
|My favorite part of the book is that it has cool pictures and information about the buildings that I never knew.|
|I opened it, it has the blocks nicely sorted in plastic by size.|
|Starting the build. This is always one of the best parts, no idea why I love the base so much.|
|It gets taller, can you see the cool sides? I just loved building them.|
|Upwards, most of the layers were similar, and they hid these black pieces inside, so fun.|
|Then it had me build these little structures.|
|And then I put them on! With more of the cool sides.|
|The tower is coming along, layer after layer.|
|Then it had me build the top. Not sure why I could just put it on, but I made it separately.|
|The finished product! Whoohoo! I love this thing. It now sits nicely on my shelf by the Sydney Opera House.|
Crazy right? I love these things, they are so easy to do, and so much fun. It feels like you are building the best architecture in the world. I also love all the idiosyncrasies that it has. Love, and love again.
