A day out at Legoland Discovery Centre, Birmingham

The girls have been really eager to go to the new LEGOLAND Discovery Centre in Birmingham, so when we told them we were going to be annual pass holders they were delighted. They really adore going to Sea Life Centre, as regular readers of my blog will know, so being able to go to LDC just across the canal is super exciting for them – we’ll be able to do both in one day quite often, especially with LDC having a nice little cafe inside with a decently priced kids meal deal.… Continue Reading “A day out at Legoland Discovery Centre, Birmingham”

Review: LEGO DC Super Hero Girls – 41232, 41230 & 41235

The girls love LEGO, and they love Super Heroes, so when we found out that a new range of LEGO DC Super Hero Girls sets was being released, we were really interested and the girls were very excited to get some to review!

My Lego Dimensions set up

My Lego Dimensions set up

I got my first Lego Dimensions stuff last Christmas. I started off with the Starter Pack and by the end of the Christmas holidays I also had the Unikitty fun pack, the Doctor Who level pack – some excellent use of my Christmas money! Fast forward 11 months later and my collection has expanded a fair bit. We’ve bought the odd pack through special offers,… Continue Reading “My Lego Dimensions set up”

Pumpkin - BRICKLIVE

Our day at BRICKLIVE!

Last weekend we headed over to the NEC in Birmingham to go to BRICK LIVE, the UK’s largest LEGO show. To say we were all excited would be an understatement. We are a family of Lego addicts so to be let loose in a huge exhibition hall (make that 2 halls!) full to the brim of Lego was pretty much a surefire way to make us a family of very happy geeks.… Continue Reading “Our day at BRICKLIVE!”

We’re going to BRICKLIVE!

We have been offered press passes to attend BRICKLIVE this year.

BRICKLIVE is the UK’s largest LEGO exhibition and is on from Thursday 27th to Sunday 30th October at the NEC, Birmingham. It is going… Continue Reading “We’re going to BRICKLIVE!”

A day out at Legoland Windsor

We were invited by SuperBreak, who sell short breaks combining accommodation and attraction tickets, to spend a day at the Legoland Windsor Resort in order to see what it has to offer for families.    We are about two hours drive from the resort so James booked a Wednesday off work, and we planned to get up early and be there around opening time, at 10am.… Continue Reading “A day out at Legoland Windsor”

Absurd Duplo Creations

We have a lot of Duplo. When Georgie was just starting to get to Duplo age, we managed to get a big tub of the stuff at a bargain price on eBay, and we have been adding “interesting” bits & pieces to our collection ever since that starting point. We have now amassed a rather huge collection, filling one large and one medium sized tub. Georgie and… Continue Reading “Absurd Duplo Creations”
