Let your LEGO minifigs speak their mind!

There is a very interesting new product available: LEGO Minifigure Speech Bubbles. Here is the official description:

“Create a scene and start a conversation between your LEGO minifigures with the LEGO Minifigure Speech Bubbles. Each set includes 24 Speech Bubbles that can be connected to your Minifigures to make it look like they are talking. Attach the stickers with pre-printed sayings or use the included stencil to make your own messages. Comes with one Lego Minifigure to add to your collection.”

The LEGO Minifigure Speech Bubbles includes:

  • 1 LEGO Minifigure
  • 24 Speech Bubbles in different colors and shapes
  • 12 Pre-Printed Sayings
  • 24 Blank Stickers
  • 1 Stencil to make your own messages

The speech bubbles attach to the minifigs neck in the same way as minifig backpacks, air-tanks, quivers and other minifig gear. There are some regular bubbles for minifigs talking, exclamation bubbles for minifigs yelling, and cloud-bubbles for minifigs thinking. Cute, huh? ;)

The LEGO Minifigure Speech Bubbles are currently available only from Toys’R’Us for $9.99. Here is the link: LEGO Minifigure Speech Bubbles

I see great potential for these speech bubbles for LEGO vignettes and dioramas, as well as for LEGO photography, and stop-motion films. Also, if you ever participate in a LEGO exhibit or contest where you can only use LEGO products (no customizing or other brands allowed), the speech bubbles can add some really interesting dynamics to your LEGO creation. That’s just my thought. What do you think? :)

I love it!! This would be such a great tool for kids with Autism. Most of the kids I work with (I am an Occupational Therapist in education, Qld, Aus) will spend hours with Lego and it also helps to calm them down when needed. They will now be able to use the speech bubbles to communicate and share their needs!! Bravo, Lego!!! When will it be available in Australia?

Petro, that is an excellent idea for the speech-bubbles! I’m in the USA, so I can’t say when they would be available in your country. However since you are planning to use them for educational purposes, and LEGO is big on helping educational facilities, I would suggest you contact LEGO directly and ask them if they could make it available for your school. I think it is worth a shot. ;)

I wonder if hats and stuff fit on the Lego head with these?

It seems like short hair, caps, etc. should not have a problem fitting. At least that’s how it looks like judging from the pictures. With larger helmets (like Darth Vader’s) or with longer hair, I’m not so sure. But as far as I know they are made of a softer plastic so there is some wiggle-room.

I’m planning to get these next time I go to TRU, but in the meantime any readers who have them already, please enlighten us about the details! ;)

I found a picture for you that is more clear as far as the distance between the speech-bubbles and the head. Check it out! It seems like they can easily work with larger head-gear! Yay! :D
