DK Publishing is at it again with another beautifully created hardcover book, 365 Things To Do With LEGO Bricks. It’s been around 6 months since my last book review, and after receiving a copy from my parents for Christmas, it was perfect timing. As we all know, there are loads of possibilities when it comes to LEGO bricks, and this book outlines just 365 of the options. That’s not all though, and this is where the book gets interesting.
234: Play a game of grab-a-brick. This one is pretty quick – scatter some bricks on the floor, and throw a small ball up into the air, grabbing as many bricks as you can before the ball hits the ground. It goes into maybe using colours as different scores.
162: Pick-a-brick challenge. Much like the well known Iron Builder (which is back by the way – check yesterday’s post if you missed it), choose an element, and see how many different ways you can use it.
53: Go panning for gold. Lastly, this one recreates the mechanism of the LEGO sorting head, with a grille made from LEGO plates, getting smaller as they go down.
As you can see, there’s plenty of variety in this publication, with something appealing to every LEGO fan, regardless of age. You can buy a copy for yourself at all good bookstores, for $39.99. It’s a fantastic read and I’m very happy I got such an excellent present! Thanks Mum and Dad.
