Lego Good Friday

March 29, 2013

Lego Good Friday

We often find Lego things to post to TOTD from around the web, but this is more locally produced. A colleague has had one of their children creating an Easter ‘scene’ in a ‘basket’ and this was their contribution.

Jesus is on the cross with long hair, guards keep the crowds at bay, and the large coloured block to the right is the stone that hints of the resurrection to come.

No, we’re not entirely sure what Batman is doing there either!

Many thanks to our contributor and son!

Happy Easter to all our readers.

If you thought yesterday’s skittle sorting machine was clever, this is a work of pure genius:

(Our thanks to Roo for both these items)

Lego studio

November 6, 2012

We knew we were fairly keen on Lego here at TOTD, see our tag cloud for evidence of that.  But the only Lego the Library actually had was recently stolen sadly.  However, our enthusiasm is clearly totally outshone by occasional contributor Roo’s devotion to the extent he even has a studio set up which must be the envy of any serious Lego enthusiast!  If you can do better, let us know.

Lego Infographic

March 27, 2012

Here at TOTD there are two things we’re rather fond of –  LEGO and infographics. So a big thank you to LJ for finding us an infographic about LEGO! This infographic tells you a bit about a LEGO’s history but most interestingly about how LEGO is used in education.

Other interesting facts included the claim that LEGO could be considered the biggest tyre manufacturer in the world. It produces 306 million tyres a year, although they are tiny!

Stop motion Lego Millennium Falcon

TOTD doesn’t know whether to be more staggered by the original model or the animation of its construction.  Either way, it’s staggering!

Save three years of life and watch the animation!

LOTR LEGO

January 31, 2012

TOTD loves LEGO! TOTD loves Lord of the Rings! Therefore how can we not love Lord of the Rings LEGO?

LEGO Minecraft

November 17, 2011

Here’s an interesting idea that might appeal to fans of both LEGO and the hugely popular sandbox construction game Minecraft.

3d street art

We’ve visited anamorphic illusions before [1] but this is a nice new one from Sarasota that also indulges our love of Lego:

  3. Draw a Stickman
  4. Sodaplay
