How to comment?

Would you like to share your thoughts, opinions, questions or comments on our posts? There is a Comment section under each post you can use to interact with us, other readers and contributors.


To leave a comment you will need to fill in your name, email address, and optionally your website address.

NAME: you can use your real name, nickname, initials or any other name you would like to be indentified with. Just keep in mind that this is a family-friendly site and comments with inappropriate names will be deleted.

Would you like to add a picture (also known as avatar) next to your comment to identify you? You can easily activate this feature by setting up your avatar (Just click on the link). When you post here, your Gravatar image will automatically show up! 😉

EMAIL ADDRESS: you can subscribe to responses to your comments or questions by entering your email address and checking the “Notify me of follow-up comments via e-mail ” checkbox under your comment. Please note that your email address will not be shown with your comment or shared with anyone.

WEBSITE: if you like, you can share your LEGO picture-gallery, website or blog by filling in this section. This is totally optional. If you fill in the box your name will be highlighted in blue, and other readers can click on it to visit your site. 😉


Unfortunately WordPress does not have a feature to allow already posted comments to be edited by the commenter, so check your grammar and choose your words carefully! If you already posted a comment and you absolutely must change it, you can email us and we will take care of it for you.


Would you like to spice-up your comment with smileys? Below is a list of smileys recognized by WordPress. Type in the appropriate code (listed below) and once you submit your comment – voila! – the code will turn into the corresponding smiley! Just make sure you leave a space between the smiley-code and the word in front of it, and/or behind it, so WordPress can recognize the code. (Click the image for larger view.)


Please note that we take spam very seriously and will delete them all! Also, occasionally a genuine comment will be caught by our spam-filter. The most likely reason is using a word that spammers often use, and by this triggering the spam-filter. Some of these are obvious “bad” words, others are more common ones.

If your posted comment gets caught by the spam-filter, you will see a notice above it stating that “Your comment is awaiting moderation”. Do not worry! Your message is not deleted, just being held temporarily. I check comments at least once a day and will make sure the real ones get approved and the baddies deleted. 😎

I hope you enjoy reading our website, interacting with our posts, and communicating with our readers and contributors. And of course if you have any questions just let us know! 😛

I have a friend that loves lego. Is there anywhere I can buy the display name holder that you see in the stores explaining who built the display. E.g batman and Robin built by the master builder Dave. Thanks cass

Cassie, you will likely have to ask your LEGO store about those. As far as I know that is not a product they offer for sale, however if you ask nicely they may give you one. 😉

This is my first time checking out this site. It is great to see all of the adults that have enjoyed Lego’s for years, and are still going strong with or without their kids.
I was going to ask how long this site has been going, and if it was still in use. Just asking, because I have come across a couple sites that are no longer in use. :-)
I read about the Laser Pegs, and checked out the photos. Is it me or did a couple of the sets look like remakes of Lite Bride?
Just saying.
Anyways, I am a Dad of 3 boys, and enjoy putting Lego’s sets together, and also creating my own stuff.
Thanks for the cool site.
I’ll be back.

Chris, nice to have you over! TBB has been around since 2010 with about 15,000 visitors a day. It is a very active community with daily news, updates, reviews and more. You can subscribe to new posts, participate in discussions, and in general enjoy being part of a LEGO fan community. We are also active on all major social media platforms. You can find links to those in the left-hand side-bar. Have fun building and stop by again when you have time! :)


Bobbi March 4, 2015 at 10:55 AM

Agree with Chris!

As a teacher, I am hoping to introduce LEGO into an my school and am looking through a lot of sites. I really like the building tips section!

Which piece or brick fits over the rounded-top window frame of the
1x2x2 and 2/3 window? Thanks.


admin April 2, 2015 at 1:32 PM

Mike, any standard 4 stud wide arch would fit. :)


Mr. K May 5, 2015 at 2:56 PM

We are starting a STEM lab for various ages in the district. What can I purchase for a large amount of Legos for free building. I need all the pieces needed for building experimentation.


admin May 5, 2015 at 4:11 PM

You can buy loose LEGO elements directly from LEGO or through third-party LEGO resellers through BrickLink. Wishing you bet with your project! :)

you have a promotion with ‘The Daily Mail@ this week which i have missed out on due to work schedule, is there any way i can get hold of the ones i’ve missed?


admin May 22, 2015 at 8:42 AM

Maxine, I would suggest that you contact your local LEGO branch’s customer service about this. We are just a LEGO fan community. You should also be able to get the promos on the secondary market like eBay or BrickLink.

I was trying to subscribe so I could watch the posted Ninjago episodes 35, 36 & 37. I subscribed to everything I saw but when I went to watch it said private.

What do I need to do so I can view these videos?

What a great idea all things Lego. Also trying to subscribe to comments feed didn’t work. I’m using Chrome.




admin July 12, 2015 at 10:04 AM

Alphie, LEGO uploaded the Ninjago videos from last season to their channel (which is what I shared here), but then later they deleted them. There is really nothing we can do about that. Other people also upload the episodes, but they get removed pretty quickly by YouTube due to copyright reasons. When you do find an episode it is best to watch it right away because they won’t be around for long.

The comment subscription is via Feedburner and it doesn’t work with Chrome. Even though both of them are Google products. Go figure. It does work with other browsers though. So if you want to subscribe to comments on a particular discussion, you can temporarily switch to another browsers. Both IE and Firefox works.

I am starting a Lego club at the library and was wondering if there was any way that I would be able to get about 30 or so Lego magazines for the kids that attend?


admin August 1, 2015 at 12:57 PM

Theresa, are you talking about the LEGO Club Magazines? You can usually get back issues, even whole lots, on eBay for a reasonable price. You might also consider subscribing to the magazine so you have the latest issues available. The LEGO Club Magazine subscription is free in the USA. Also, since you are doing this program for children, it may be worth to call LEGO’s customer service and see if they would be willing to donate some magazines. I think it is very likely that they will. :)

i have an old black lego briefcase that is one piece life size made in 1997 and I was wondering what it is because there is no block id on it.


admin August 6, 2015 at 10:32 PM

Noah, is that an actual briefcase for everyday life, or a storage case for LEGO?


noah August 8, 2015 at 12:14 AM

It is for storing legos I think


sola September 7, 2015 at 9:52 PM

Dear Sir/ Madam

we would like to arrange a tour with Chinese high school children to Denmark so they can see the Legoland entertainment park and also get a tour of the factory.

But I couldn’t reach your Denmark Office through your official webpage by phone or email.

May I know who should I contact to?



admin September 8, 2015 at 9:43 AM

Sola, TBB is a LEGO blog not affiliated with The LEGO Group. Please contact them through the information through their contact page: If that doesn’t work for some reason let me know and I may be able to get you in contact with someone who can help.

My girlfriend bought me a star wars lego set from Walmart. When i opened up the box i noticed that all the bags have been opened and resealed. All the parts were wrong; they seem to be from a completely different set. I have a feeling someone bought the lego set and swapped out the parts and returned it. It’s quite a bummer.


admin September 13, 2015 at 8:56 PM

Kong, I suggest that you return the set to Wal-Mart immediately, along with your receipt. This is a known problem in their stores and they should give you an exchange or full refund.
