Lego is not only the nifty little blocks you can use to make just about everything- but now they have these little figures that are really fun, and come in lots of varieties. That is awesome! Now my husband, I mean my kids, can put all kinds of little people (and monsters, this is an equal oppertunity home) in the futuristic Egyptian castle space-port. While fishing and surfing- of course!
Long gone are the two, or maybe three faces on the plain yellow head with a brightly colored shirt and yellow legs. Now, in stores is the minifigures line of toys. We have a n assortment of them- and they are inexpensive and easy to keep in your purse for a bribery moment of quiet on a long car ride from hades, or that shopping trip that won’t end. Come on- you know you keep toys in your purse, don’t lie! LOL
Each package contains one figure with accessories. By accessories, I don’t necessarily mean a sword or a cape. I mean, the surfer girl comes with an awesome surf board and a stand to display her on, as well as the lego smirk and of course can be deconstructed to be swapped out with any other minifig parts. What this means is surfer girl can have a haz mat helmet on and hold an axe, of course with the smirk still intact.
Legos are a great toy, kid friendly, non violent, educational, helps with creative thinking. NOT for your very little kids, of course! Daddy insisted I add this- he wrote these lines, and they HAVE to be added to the review according to him-
“Little Man likes to make totems of the minifigs. Not so much a grotesque lego parts monster, just a few of them stacked one of top of the other, kind of a awkward way for 4 minifigs to change a light bulb.
I- Daddy- love the little figs too, my personal favorite is either the lawn gnome, or the crazy scientist of course. Now if only there was an odd beer brewer minifig I’d be set.”
Sigh. Ok, see why I had to explain that Daddy wrote that last part? This is what I live with.
But these are really fun, and dad and Little have been having a blast with them!
Have fun, and happy building!
