Sometimes when I browse Amazon I run across some really interesting LEGO items that I don’t see anywhere else. For example I recently discovered a collection of high quality LEGO desk supplies. I will show you some of them here, as they would make great gift items for LEGO fans, or even for yourself. A good excuse to keep some LEGO even at your work-desk. These are all licensed by LEGO, and include real LEGO elements. 🙂
➡ LEGO STATIONERY – BUILDABLE RULER: I love this ruler! It is made of all LEGO elements, including some unique pieces. Take a look at those 4×20 green baseplates, and printed LEGO tiles! You can build either a 6 inch or 12 inch ruler from the pieces, and attach whatever you like to the plates in the middle. I can see this ruler being very useful not just as a regular desk supply, but as part of various LEGO machines and other contraptions. In the video-review below JANBRiCKS will show you the ruler in more detail, and if you would like to get one, you can find it here: LEGO RULER ON AMAZON
➡ LEGO STATIONERY – COLORED GEL PENS: In the same collection there is also a set of nine gel pens that writes in nine colors: red, orange, yellow, light-green, green, light-blue, blue, brown, and black. The pens all have standard LEGO 1×4 plates incorporated at their end, so you can either attach the pens to a LEGO surface, or attach LEGO parts and minifigs to the pens. You can find it here: LEGO GEL PENS ON AMAZON
➡ LEGO STATIONERY – COLORED MARKERS: This is a set of nine markers, in the same colors as the pens mentioned above: red, orange, yellow, light-green, green, light-blue, blue, brown, and black. The markers have thicker bodies than the pens, so here 2×4 plates are added. You fan find it here: LEGO COLORED MARKERS ON AMAZON
➡ LEGO STATIONERY – PENCIL BOX: Naturally, there is also a LEGO pencil box in the collection. But instead of just being a boring ordinary pencil box, this one is also very cleverly designed. There is an 8×26 green baseplate inside the pencil holder that you can use to attach your pens and markers, or just build something on top. And there is also a 2×4 plate in the lid, for more attachments. You can find it here: LEGO PENCIL BOX ON AMAZON
➡ LEGO STATIONERY – STORAGE BOX: There is a larger version of the pencil box, with a removable 18×26 green baseplate to store your LEGO stationeries, or whatever else you like. This one doesn’t have a LEGO plate incorporated in the lid, but the cover is made to look like a notebook with some LEGO designs. You can even use this as a small carry-case for LEGO elements. You can find it here: LEGO STORAGE BOX ON AMAZON
➡ LEGO STATIONERY – JOURNAL: This journal got matching cover to the storage box mentioned above. It’s a standard journal, except that it includes a 6×26 stud plate on the outside for building. You can find it here: LEGO JOURNAL ON AMAZON
Cool, aren’t they? The whole collection makes a really nice school supply set for kids, or desk supply set for adults. They are all high quality items to match the LEGO brand, and all the LEGO elements included are real LEGO plates and baseplates with the LEGO logo on all studs. The unusual size LEGO baseplates and the printed ruler pieces are particularly interesting because they are unique to this series.
There are some other items in the same collection, like pencils, pencil sharpeners, erasers and various other pen and marker sets. I won’t list them all, but you can find them here: LEGO STATIONERY COLLECTION ON AMAZON
I would say that even just one of these items would make a great gift, or if you like your stationery to match, you can get them all. What do you think? How do you like this LEGO stationery collection? Do you have any of them already? Or planning to get some? Feel free to share your own review in the comment section below! 😉

There are no Metric rulers? Only Imperial?
The rules is metric on one side, imperial on the other. 😉
They had a stationary section at the Kansas City Lego Kids Fest last weekend and my wife who is not big into Lego tried these out and really loved them, especially the jel pens. My daughter loved them as well and wants them when school returns in the fall. They were all very well made and are very high quality.
Matt, thanks for sharing that! Great to hear you guys like them too! 🙂
For anyone interested, they do sell these in most Barnes and Noble retail locations, though I bet the price is better on Amazon. I simply share that for those who might want to see them in person before buying. They have always caught my eye when I am in B&N.
Adam, thanks for mentioning that. Yes, it is worth checking out items in person if you are not sure about something.
Interesting ideas. The ruler appeals most but I don’t think I’d spend $17 (or whatever it was) for a ruler without a metal edge I could pull an Xacto against. I’d also be reluctant to use it as a straight-edge with a Sharpie since it would be a shame to mar it. Cute but not as functional as a guy could hope…
Clever that you can connect pencils to make parallel lines. Just don’t know how often that would be called for.
I did, however, get myself a Lego pencil cup because it’s just so darned cute. Happily, it’s even cute with more affordable conventional pens and pencils. 😏
Yeah, I liked that feature about the pencils too. I actually draw parallel lines fairly often – but I do a lot of arts and crafts projects. I agree though that you wouldn’t want to use this ruler with an X-acto knife. But using it with regular pens/pencils is just fine. Enjoy your cute pencil cup! 😀
I like the ruler, maybe I’ll get one in the future. It’s interesting to see how LEGO studs line up to inches and centimeters. Also those big plates, if they match LEGO’s Bright Green (or Dark Green), would be great with the other large green plates LEGO’s been producing.
Off-topic, but 70590 has been revealed: http://brickset.com/article/21442/70590-airjitzu-battle-grounds-revealed It looks okay, and it makes good use of the outriggers from 42043. I like the Yang minions too, but why is Yang included?! That ruins the minifig’s exclusivity, and I don’t think the set needs that minifig. It’s probably to boost sales…. 😕
I thought that was going to be a bigger Ninjago set. But it looks all right. LEGO is notorious of re-releasing exclusive minifigs, so that danger is always there.
All parts of the ruler are made by LEGO, so yes, they are standard LEGO colors. 🙂
I was talking about the large green plates (8×26 and 18×26) used in the pencil box and the storage box. If those are also made by LEGO, then I would hope they’re Bright Green, which would go well with the 6x12s, 8x16s, and 16x16s that LEGO has started making in that color.
Yes, those are made by LEGO too. They look regular green on my screen, but it is hard to tell. They could be bright green too. 🙂
