LEGO Elves, Fairies and A Little DIY Magic

Disclaimer: I am receiving absolutely nothing for posting this. I just think it is cool. If LEGO is reading this, please feel free to make me one of your official bloggers. I will work for LEGO’s.

Last year I signed my children up to be members of the LEGO club and to receive a free LEGO magazine subscription. This has been exceedingly cool and has brought some nice extra perks with our free membership.

A few times now, we have received advance notification for events and LEGO product launches. For example, did you know that LEGO has launched a new Elves line? We did, because of a handy dandy postcard my daughter Rebekah received in the mail with an offer to get a free mini figurine at an in-store product launch event!

The new LEGO Elves items are pretty cool and are now on the short list for upcoming holidays and birthdays. So don’t forget to sign your kids up for the Club, you can thank me later.

That is all, just think of this as my blogging public service announcement for the month.

Oh, and if your child is really into fairies, check out this fun way my daughter and I found to create a little magic!

Our fairy garden is still holding strong a year out, but we are planning on freshening it up just a little bit, because my 7 year old daughter says “We don’t want grumpy fairies.Grumpy fairies do bad things”.

Stay Happy! Stay Informed!

Love,

Jen

  1. Awww, so adorable.

    You’ve brought me back to when my son was young and we spent hours playing with his Lego’s. It was grand fun.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  2. Aaahhh! We love the fairies too. I have been thinking about building a fairy house with Marissa for quite some time now. I really should get on that. Love the Legos. I really need to check those out! A certain 6 year old will soon be 7 and I need some present ideas!

      I did, they ignored me. I can still hope someday :) I think if I mentioned your admission to my 10 year old son he would make it his personal mission to teach you. The kid is like a Svengali with the LEGO’s! He put the entire Millennium Falcon together, alone in one day. I looked at the book for 5 minutes and it hurt my eyes. not him :)

  3. My daughter LOVES the Elves line! That and the Friends of Heartlake City ones. I get them confused because of purple on the packaging, but my husband keeps it straight.
    We do a fairy garden every year, and then winter decimates it and then we rebuild. I’ll be looking into your ideas!

      Thank heavens for husbands who keep LEGO items straight! Mine keeps me up to date on it all too. I think I have seen snippets of that garden you speak of, but please make sure to take lots of pictures this year and put them into a post so my littles can take a look!

  4. I’m probably the only mother of a 6-year old that isn’t over the moon about legos. I’m still hoping that he turns over a new leaf soon. He liked the movie and enjoys when my husband helps him build them, but he doesn’t spend hours doing it himself. Cute fairy garden. We’ve made our own “train garden” from time to time.

  5. Oh my goodness, that fairy garden is so cute! T has been begging to make a fairy garden, and yours is definite inspiration. (We were going to make it over Easter break, but the stupid rain got in the way…blech) My kids aren’t all that into LEGO, just yet. But it may still catch on in our house!

  6. Hi Jen, Lego is one of those timeless toys that will be around forever (I hope). We still have a bag of Lego from when I was a child. I have fond memories of going to the toy shop as a child to pick up a box of pieces, back in those days we could collect stickers from the boxes and when you had enough stickers we could get a free box. Also the boxes weren’t fancy, they were just boxes of one type of brick. We had loads of the stuff.

    Love the fairy garden too! And grumpy fairies really aren’t very pleasant to have round.

      The LEGO nowadays are far more fancy than when I was a child, but I still loved them!! You just reminded me of the sticker/box tops!! I had forgotten that. I lived for the day when I could go collect my free item. Thank you for jogging that memory for me. It’s funny how even forgotten memories once revived can be so vivid.

      Best wishes for a happy weekend!
