  1. So I'm curious what everyone does when they have all their Lego all sorted and organized perfectly and have all sorts of classic sets on display and then your kid wants to play with them! Do you let them? Do you have special Lego for them to play with and yours are off limits? I have a nephew that visits often and I am just at the very beggining stages of getting into Lego again, but since my nephew has always been able to play with my childhood Lego that I still have I'm afraid he will want to play with any new sets or Lego towns I build and potentially mix up a nicely organized system or break apart a set I don't want broken apart. So, how do you handle the kids wanting to play with your Lego peices and MOCs?

    Boy's Room

    This was built for the ABS Builder Challenge, Round 1.2 It was largely inspired by Cesbrick’s amazing Kid’s Room model. This was quite an enjoyable change from my typical minifigure scale Castle creations. Both the closet doors and main door do open and close. You can see more pictures on brickbuilt. Thanks for looking

    Lego ideas!

    Hey everyone, I have recently started a lego ideas project called Lego sea animals. For the project to get into review i need 10,000 supporters and if it then passes review it will be made into a real set! :) So i am asking everyone just to have a look at the project (follow the link) and if you like the project or if you like the designs of the animals, then support and share the project with your friends and family who might also be interested :) Hopefully together we can get to 10,000 supporters and i may one day be able to tell my Lego crazy niece and nephew that I have made a real lego set :D Thanks everyone :)
  4. Hey guys, I am serious considering getting the EV3 set for my kids, so they can learn a bit about robotics and coding - they are 10 and 7, so should be age appropriate. I am not at all familiar with the EV3, so hopefully someone can answer these questions. Can a Win 8/Win 10 PC be used to program the control brick? Will an old smart phone (deactivated) be useful for bluetooth control? Will this actually be a good introduction to coding? Aside from the EV3 set, should I get additional sensors or motors - we have plenty of bricks and technic parts already, of course. thanks!
  5. I was a child of the 70s, when toys were simple, creative and fund, and that's what I'm passing along to my little tater tots who are 4 year old b/g twins. They are so excited to grow their Lego world, but not as excited as mommy :) I am obsessed with minifigs, a handful which I am still trying to procure at a reasonable price - but I know serier 14 will come out and I'll want all of those :) I have build a Lego City for my kids and tend to it every morning and evening to "tidy up" - it's a labor of love! Excited to be here, and look forward to learning some tips and tricks, and meeting some friendly, and fellow obsessed, fans. Good evening from California, -deniz

    Lego Kids Bedroom

    Here we have a kids bedroom complete with toys, a bedside table, toy chest, and of course a bed. The room is fairly small and only built with two walls like most of my builds to allow for unobstructed view in photography and "showing off." The toy chest is a chest with side things which make it look like a bench/chest. An overview A top view Another front view Another Side View
  7. A boys (probably) room from the 80s. I got inspiration to this model after watching some 80s movies that contained scenes similiar to this one (such as E.T., Goonies etc) and saw how cosy and detailed these rooms were, filled with toys, but still well-decorated and organazied for the movie. Perhaps you recognize some of the toys?
  8. Hi all! This is my first MOC post and due to a lack of parts (and skills, it turns out) I'll be sharing this diary styles - a little like Lightning Tiger's - so you all can see and contribute to the build. So far it's gone from this: to this: With a whole lot of rebuilds along the way! Currently only the basic wall layout for the lower floor is complete. The left side of the build is a bedsit complete with old cat lady and exterior stairs to the second floor. The right is the ground floor bookstore and small rear exterior for a dumpster etc (I'd like to devise a working trash chute). There will be another 16x16 plate to be the footpath (or 'sidewalk') featuring a newspaper and magazine vendor in front, as the set is designed to be played with an open hinge (forming a handy 16x16 square). The second story will be a two bedroom family apartment, and above that there will be a nominal roof terrace 'garden' (probably only on one side). The book shop doors are unfinished and I'll be working on some brick built ones in the morning. Also the base plate colours need work, don't you think? I've set myself up with a pretty steep challenge as well. The build has to meet some criteria which have been defined by myself out of fun and also from necessity, as this MOC will end up being played with by my 5 1/2 yo (and the Friends target age) and we don't have a lot of money to spend on parts. Challenge: 1) It has to fit in the Friends/City universe, and I like to think it fits somewhere in between - a little closer to Heartlake maybe, a hard working borough on the outskirts of town? Bella calls it 'the Neighbourhood'. Thanks Mr. Rogers! Anyway, it has to look like a proper Lego building, with that nice Lego realism/playability balance. 2) It has to be easily accessible, playable (durable!) and buildable by kids in the 5-12yo range. 3) The parts must come from one major set (3185) and any other parts used must be readily available in small sets, polybags etc. (btw, does this make it a mod?) 4) Key design challenge - it has to be compact. The whole shebang is designed to close up, stack up and be put away neatly. (No spreading mini-builds!) 5) It has to be aesthetically pleasing in both 'closed' and 'open for play' form; including using a reasonably limited colour palette, not covering/blocking wall panels (a real bugbear of mine) and not having large expanses of blankness. 6) There have to be at least 3 "real" play features. Guess who gets to judge what constitutes real?! I'm always so in awe of the amazing MOCs I see on here, especially the high quality modular buildings. This sure isn't one of them, but I hope you can see the inspiration. Thanks for reading!

    Hi everyone My name is Rui and I’m an afol from Portugal. It’s been a while since I’ve been around this website and forum (especially the technic one) but as I didn’t want to continue being one of the guests, here I am. As most of the afol, I went through a dark age. Mine lasted from age 15 till about 7 years ago, while shopping for Lego sets for my young boy about Christmas time when I noticed the 8275 Bulldozer and thought – Wow this is Lego technic today! It was a lot of money so I didn’t buy it but forces were in motion. A few days after I spotted an 8273 Off Road Truck at 50% off and that was it. I was 38 then. After that I bought several technic sets but as I started having a lot of parts and discovered bricklink, I’ve been bricklinking models for the last 3 years buying just the parts needed. I’m essentially a builder from instructions but like to add some mods either for esthetics or simply because some part is missing. My boys are 8 and 11 today and they are also lego builders. Having 2 sons gives me the best excuse to search, talk, build and buy lego! Best to you all, Rui
  10. Hi all! I was hoping I could get some advice from Friends followers on which big set I should be purchasing this Christmas - for my 5 1/2yo girl. I do most of my own Lego construction through LDD as we don't have a lot of money for me to spend on actual Lego - but LDD doesn't cut it for youngsters, and she's asked for a 'big big big' Lego set this year. (And a Lightening McQueen car bed, but we're going to ignore that one - it's way too heavy for Santa's sleigh!). I've already hidden away the campervan. Personally I'd like to explore those delightful tan bricks, but they come in several large Friends sets, so I'm stumped. I've read all of Pandora's reviews and she makes them all sound so good, I'm still stuck! I know the obvious answer is the Summer Riding camp, but it's unlikely we can afford that this year, even if I find it on special or secondhand. If you all think it's the best, and with a little help she could build it, then I may revisit it as it's got the grown ups, home life and school life I know she'd love. We've currently got a whole bunch of small sets, the largest probably being Emma's Horse Trailer or Olivia's Treehouse, and she loved building Emma's car (she's a bit vehicle mad) so while I know this will be a big jump build wise, I think she's ready. The alternative might be to buy her a couple of medium builds (pet salon, cafe etc), which would be cool too - but won't be the 'big big big' set every little kid desires. Her play is mostly role-play, with the occasional stop to build a bit she needs for that play, so from observation I know she'd love more grown ups, and another horse would help. And if you're thinking the Vet, I did too - but it's completely sold out. Will Olivia's House be retired soon? You can still buy it here, but it'd be awful to miss out (I just overpaid for Olivia's Workshop as I couldn't not have such an iconic set!). I've included some poor quality (sorry) phone-cam pics below of what she's currently building/playing with, as you can see it's pretty family-centered stuff (if they had a daycare or preschool set on the shelves I would not need to start this thread!) but I also hope you just enjoy the photos. (And yes, I know we need a bigger Lego table!) The MOCs on EuroBricks are so amazingly intricate (The Monde! OMG, the Monde!) and well thought out it's easy to forget Lego was and is a kids toy, and this is how a 5yo girl plays with Basic bits, City bits and Friends. (Minifigs and minidolls get along fine - figs are boys and 'old people' and dolls are Mums and Sisters. No joke.) I love her attention to detail - check out the pink, blue and green pram, last photo, bottom left. The wheels had to be different to car wheels, clear bricks were required for a viewing window to 'check on baby' and no modern buggy would be complete without a roof! Also the handles were changed multiple times till we found a way both figs (that's Nana pushing 'baby' - a minifig head on a yellow 1x1 round brick wrapped in a ribbon) and dolls could use the buggy. Too cute, right? Also, we need a better Lego storage system (you may have noticed we currently use the 'floor' method). Thoughts?
  11. It's a new day at the Blutziegel School for Special Learners. It's early morning, and the kids are giddy. Li'l Capt. Redblade, Li'l Walter Kovacs, Li'l Cecilie, Li'l Peanuts, and Li'l Trumpet King sit at the front of the class. Li’l Cecilie imparts knowledge on the li'l crew. “So then, like, the guy starts making these totally wacky faces, then, like, the music gets totally wacky, and he yells ‘Harlem Shake’ an’ everybody gets totally wacky. It was, like, so cool!” Li’l Peanuts nods his head in agreement. “Yeah, yeah, that sounds totally rad. I wanna check it out!” Li’l Cornelius Murdock starts running around the room. “Teacher’s coming! Teacher’s coming!” Mr. def steps in. “Good morning students! The chime's about to ring. Shouldn't you be in your seats?” Getting in position, the students greet their teacher, "Good morning, Mr. def!" Mr. def turns on the TV, reminding students where they left off. "Now, let's consider the case of the Eurobricks Mafia. Now, of course, it was a lackluster ending, what with the 'winners' merely being left in that squalid room... But there was little that could logically happen." He pauses. "Now, let’s consider the question of how to handle a mafia team that is divided in such a way. How should we handle night action results?" Li'l Big Cam raises his arms. "Mememe! ME!" Switching off the TV, Mr. def looks over the class. "Well? Somebody? Speak up! It's not like I'll belittle a wrong answer from you. Say your word!" Li'l Big Cam launches himself onto the table. "SIR! ME! I KNOW!" "Very well then, enlighten us." “Sir! It should be handled with prudence, sir!” He takes a breath. “Both to prevent outing town power roles, and to not give scum info to confirm each other with!” Mr. def looks on approvingly. “Yes, and I would add that it could be shared within a trusted town block, allowing a vigilante to take them out as well.” He takes a moment to consider how to proceed. “Alright, next question: who are the best candidates for the town masons to recruit?” Dannylonglegs shoots his hand up. “I know! It’s the veteran players with the best win record! They will be most valuable to their team confirmed!” Mr. def scowls. “I hadn’t asked you to answer. And wrong! The best choice are solid players in the middle of the pack! They are less likely to be taken out by scum in the early game days and are more likely to be of value to you. Unless scum consider this point, and decide to target them too, in which case, the best and worst players are the ideal choice.” Li’l Big Cam’s hand shoots up. “Sir, I need to go to the li’l boys room, like now! I gotta wild number two on the way” Mr. def “Very well, go. I remember what happened the last time I accused you of being the boy who cried wolf, and I don't want to need my classroom disinfected again.” Li’l Big Cam scoots out of the room with clenched buttocks. “As for our next question, are the scum better to try to recruit active players or really quiet vanilla-looking players?” The class is quiet. “Statistically, vanilla’s are still more likely to be recruitable, and less likely to be killed by scum. At the same time, they will be the ones town lynches when they have no choice, so—“ “Sweet sassy molassy! What was that?!” Mr. def makes a gesture. "Li'l Boy Wonder, go to the restroom and see what the disturbance was." Li'l Boy Wonder shuffles out the door. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A MINUTE PASSES ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Li'l Boy Wonder returns, "Li’l Big Cam? His megablocks, it exploded.” The class gasps. “Is he okay?” Li'l Boy Wonder looks at him, “No, his megablocks exploded. He’s dead. And I fished this sticky note out of the debris.” Mr. def calls, “Li’l Boy Wonder, read that message for the class!” Li’l Boy Wonder squints to read, “Uh, it says, thega me is a foot! Whatever that means.” “Oh no, I’m afraid you’re mistaken, I am well sure it says, ‘The game is afoot!’ Well class, I think you know what this means: you’re playing. This is not a test. This is the real thing, and Li'l Big Cam's ruptured rectum is surely evidence of that. You must find which of you are the killers. One of you will be convicted at the end of the day. You may vote for mayor for the time being.” "Feel free to spend time on the playground and make your call. May the best team win!" And with that, the class wonders why their parents ever signed permission slips.

Each player will be given a character to play, who will be aligned with either the Town or the Scum. To win the game, the Town must kill off all the Scum, while the Scum needs to (knowingly) outnumber the Town. Third-party (neutral) characters have their own win conditions as outlined in their roles. 2. Each day you will be able to vote to lynch a player. Voting will be done in the following format; Vote: Player. Similarly, unvoting is to be done in the format; Unvote: Player. No other format will be accepted. A majority vote is required to lynch a player. The player with the most votes will be lynched. In the case of a tie, the mayor will decide the lynch, through their vote, or by PM if necessary. Voting is mandatory. Failure to vote will incur a vote penalty the following game day. 2.5. A mayor will be elected in the first 24 hours of the game day one. Voting for the mayor will be done in the following format:Mayor: Player. Unvoting for the mayor will not be allowed. One may vote for themselves. In the case of a tie, the first person to achieve that number will win. In the case that the mayor loses their life, a new mayor will be elected in the first 24 hours of the following game day. The mayors single duty will be that of tiebreaker. 3. A game day will last a maximum of 72 hours. You may not vote in the first 24 hours. The day will end when a majority vote has been reached after 72 hours. In the case of a unanimous vote, the day may end 24 hours early. After the day has been concluded, a night stage will commence, which will last 24 hours (or 48 hours if an emergency comes up). Night actions must be sent to the host in the first 24 20 hours of the night stage. 3.5. Players may not target the same player two nights in a row, and may not target themselves. 4. The alignment of lynched players, as well as any that died during the night, will be revealed at the beginning of the next day. 5. You may not quote or pretend to quote anything sent to you by the host via PM. That includes all the details of your character and role, as well as any night action results. Role claims and reporting of night action results are acceptable, but in your own words only. Do not attempt to use the structure of your role PM to your advantage. 6. Do not play the game outside the thread. Similarly, do not post out of character inside the thread. Game tactics and roles may only be discussed in the game thread or via PM with other players. Private discussion is done at your own risk and should be treated as part of the game. 7. If you are dead, you may not post in thread or discuss the game with any of the players. Any information you had becomes void, and may not be passed on. 8. You may not edit your posts. 9. You must post in every day thread. 10. If you encounter a problem or have a question, please contact the host via PM. Do not spam the hosts's PM box. 11. Violation of the above rules may result in a 5 vote penalty vote penalty per every 4 living players against you, and death upon further offense.
  12. I noticed there didn't seem to be a thread that you could share your kids creations so I thought I'd start one up. Feel free to add to it! There's nothing better than sharing your hobby with your kids... Most Sunday afternoons- especially if the weather isn't that good- My 6 & & yr old daughters and I will build away. Here's couple of photos of their play area, complete with painted MDF board and "friends" inspired town layout. Each time they're getting more creative with the things they're making. Those with a keen eye may notice Gandalf patroling the borderlands to guard against any Megablock invasion

    MOC: TMNT - Turtle Party Wagon

    I repost this since it was lost from the server move. So here is the Turtle Party Wagon from 1988 again. Unfortuantely no Turtles minifigs, yet (I have to wait till 2013 :)) Comparision with the real Turtle Party Wagon.
