Welcome to theBrickBlogger!

This site is dedicated to those who are discovering or re-discovering the joy and magic of expressing themselves through building with LEGO bricks! :)

Most of us get introduced to LEGO as a child, and create all kinds of wondrous things for some years. Once reaching our teens though, many of us leave the little plastic bricks behind for other pursuits and hobbies.

Sometimes this is a  natural change of interest and sometimes it is a result of not wanting to look childish; “still playing with toys”. This is what LEGO fans call entering our “Dark Ages”, and usually last from late-teens to early to mid-thirties.

And then something happens… it could be that we no longer care what other people think of us. It could be that we re-discover LEGO through our children. Or it might be just an accidental walk down the LEGO aisle at the local department store…

Whatever it is, all of a sudden we are excited again. Our creative juices are flowing again! We look at all the new sets with bright-eyed wonder! “Wow! Look at all those shiny new sets! We didn’t have these when I was a kid!”

And we also realize – with glee, I might add – that now that we are grown-up, we can actually buy all those sets we always wanted and never able to get as a child. So, we enter an era of magic again… an era of play, creativity and lots of learning as we try to catch-up on all those lost years.

This has been my journey as well, and I thought to share my discoveries as I go along with those on a similar path. I hope you enjoy my site and that we can learn from each other. Don’t forget to comment and share your own thoughts and creations!

Welcome (back) to the World of LEGO! 😉

Hi guys

Looking for a book for 10 year old boy, he asked for a book with all the sets. Can anyone help me?

Nana, there are many LEGO books for the age-range of your son, however it seems that your son is actually looking for a LEGO Catalog with the currently available LEGO sets. You can get these free just by calling LEGO’s customer service. There is no book with all the LEGO sets ever made. It would have to be thousands and thousands of pages. If he is still looking for a book though, maybe you can specify more what he is looking for; pictures of LEGO creations, instructions to build alternate models, stories, comics, inspirations… there are so many to choose from! And you might also sign up your son for the LEGO Club Magazine. It is a bi-montlhy magazine with new sets pictures, games, puzzles, stories, comics, building inspirations and contests. And it is free. You can sign up your son by calling LEGO’s customer service. :)

is there any way I can find out what Pantone or eRGB number for my Lego? Because I am planning to build a Lego mosaics picture. Sure I can match each of my plate with a Pantone book with my eye, but is there some kind of equipment can do the job?

Wow, you have just described my journey back into LEGO!

It was only 18 months ago, in my mid thirties, that I started getting interested in technic lego again. This year, however, I jumped back into ‘proper’ LEGO. I just decided, on a whim, to pick up a city set (60073, mainly because it appealed to my toilet humour…). Well the enjoyment from just that little set blew me away, and I started buying more. Just a couple of months in and I now have a *lot* of lego and had to force myself to slow down :).

Glad to find your blog, I shall read regularly.

Rikk, nice to have you over! Welcome to this fun but expensive addiction… I mean, hobby. 😉

In reference to the LEGO Star Wars poster give away LEGO needs to sell them flat where they can be rolled up at the store. When they sold folded are dry mounted for display in your home the folded seam will always show and it looks horrible and cheap. Please sell them flat.

I agree that flat would be a much better option. However these posters are free with others and keeping them flat (or even rolled up) wouldn’t be practical. However at LEGO stores, yes, they should keep them flat.
