Lego Love

We have a bit of a joke in my house that my husband enjoys playing with the Lego more than our child. He makes all sorts of weird and wonderful creations – from spinning tops to cars and temples. So we both had a good laugh when I found this cool book on Lego – I Lego NY. Lego must be cool again because recently we went to see an exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney to see the work of Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson and we had a great time with Little C because not only was there a “mist room” but a table full of millions of pieces of white Lego. The creations were amazing: minarets, skyscrapers, skulls and all sorts of other futuristic buildings. It got me thinking how cool it would be to have an installation in a child’s room of only white Lego. We checked it out on eBay – you can buy people’s collections by the kilo, although didn’t come across any in just white… not yet!

We’ve ordered big boxes of Lego Duplo from eBay before, and they’re great. (Did you know you can just stick all the pieces in the dishwasher and voila — they’re as good as new!?) It’s a nice way of re-using toys. And the Duplo ones are great for smaller kids.

My kids are obsessed with Lego at the moment, particularly my son. We recently saw a brilliant documentary on a real-life Lego house in England, which of course my son wants us to re-create in his bedroom. Lego is a classic toy that will always appeal and needs no improvement. I hadn’t considered the dishwasher – thanks for the tip!
