Who says that playing with Lego is just for kids? After seeing the lovely British Bird Series by Thomas Poulsom, we should be positive that letting your creativity flow is one of the healthiest and most beautiful things you can do. And by supporting his birds on Cuusoo, they can even become an official Lego model.

I’m a huge fan of LEGO, so to say I’m excited about the Lego Festival being held in Sydney this year is an understatement. LEGO is celebrating 50 years in Australia by having a huge nine month lego playtime. I’m looking forward to seeing the largest ever scale model of Rome’s famous Colosseum, built entirely […]
I’m not sure I would attempt driving across this bridge, as it’s constructed of LEGOS. No problem: the bridge is actually an old railroad line re-designed as a foot and bike road, and, no, they’re not real LEGOS, but still really cool.

‘My name is Raul Oaida (from Romania) and this is my LEGO tribute to the end of the space shuttle era’. Oaida sent this toy shuttle 21 miles into the sky on a weather balloon, complete with a camera and GPS. The result: this simple, dramatic and uplifting video of the toy’s flight.

Just when you think you’ve seen everything that can be done with LEGO comes this: a LEGO train graffitist. OK, mind firmly blown. The song by Skream ain’t bad, either.
Remember Dino Riders? I freaking loved Dino Riders because I loved dinosaurs. Orion Pax, who makes incredible Lego pieces of iconic toy, cartoon, and movie scenes and characters, remembers Dino Riders as well. He knows what I’m talking about.
Now, this is one for the ages: back in 2010, Atlanta film-maker Walter Thompson created a jaw-dropping LEGO stop motion to propose to Nealey Dozier, his girlfriend of four years.
