There is a new LEGO magazine that I would like to show you today, called The Brick Collectors Magazine. The magazine is written and published by the parents of two young children and is geared toward families. It is somewhat similar in content and style to the LEGO Club Magazine published by LEGO, so if you and your kids like that one, you will most likely enjoy this LEGO magazine as well. 🙂
Here is a little bit from Joelle about her family and their LEGO interests: My husband and I have been LEGO enthusiasts since childhood, and we rediscovered LEGO bricks in our late teen years. Now we have 2 children of our own, who are fortunate to have a large LEGO collection amassed by mom and dad, at their disposal. We all enjoy LEGO bricks in our own way. I like to build LEGO Modular Buildings and seasonal models. My husband creates LEGO brick-films and has his own website, brickabrackstudios.com. Our son, age 8, loved everything Ninjago and is now totally into the new LEGO Legends of Chima theme. Our daughter, at age 2, is already an experienced LEGO builder. She has DUPLO bricks of her own to play with, but also loves the LEGO Friends line. She’s been around the small pieces since birth and has been successfully trained not to put them in her mouth. We have a LEGO room in our basement where the bulk of our large collection lives. You’ll find LEGO models and minifigures scattered throughout the rest of the house too – that happens in LEGO-families. So that’s a little bit about us.
The Brick Collectors Magazine is about 20 pages and features games, puzzles, fun LEGO projects for both younger and older kids, helpful tips, interesting articles, and other information for the whole family.
So far there are two issues available of this LEGO magazine, and you can download the PDF files here: The Brick Collectors Magazine Issue 1 -April/May and The Brick Collectors Magazine Issue 2 June/July. The PDF downloads are free, but you can also purchase printed copies if you like. The link to buy is at The Brick Collectors Magazine homepage. (Update: sadly, this magazine has been discontinued.)
If your family enjoys LEGO-time together I would highly recommend this LEGO magazine. It is very nicely put together and is full of fun and interesting projects and information for LEGO fans. I hope Joelle and her family will continue publishing further issues and The Brick Collectors Magazine becomes a bi-monthly staple for LEGO fans.
If you checked out this LEGO magazine already let me know what you think! And if you have some suggestions for further topics you would like them to cover share that also. I’m in touch with the producers of the magazine, and will forward your ideas. 😉
