LEGO Review – 10246 Ferrari & 75899 Speed Champions
Here are two sets that I just think are wonderful. However, let me warn you, the Ferrari box isn’t kidding when it says it’s expert level. I had to redo several things, and even had to have someone else be a second set of eyes at one point (not my finest building moment). On to the reviews. Read More
LEGO Review – 10246 Creator Detective Office
Like many other adult fans, I really like the modular line LEGO has been giving us. Each building has its own style, but still fits in on the block. Although, I have to say that now, I feel like the block is getting a bit crowded…
Building this set was really fun, and very relaxing. As usual, I had to make sure that the word LEGO on the studs were facing the same way when ever possible. This of course increased my build time, and not in a good way. I was tired by the end of it, and couldn’t wait to be done. I think I bit off more than I could chew, kind of like with the Helicarrier.

LEGO Review – 31032 Creator Red Creatures
Overall, for $15.00, this is a GREAT purchase. If you’re into part harvesting, then the colours are spot on in this set. If you’re into clever builds, you may want something a little more advanced, or maybe the go-kart with working steering wheel.If you’re considering getting into mech building, I have to say, this is an epic set to get you going. I know there are other actual mech sets out there, but this one will also get your creative juices flowing. Read More
LEGO Review – Creator 31031 Rain Forest Animals
Being the mature grown up that I am, I decided to pass up this set simply because it was small, simple, and I’m not a huge fan of animals. Then, by way of the internet, I learned that the bird poops! I mean really, could I ask for anything more mature and clever than that? Needless to say, I had a grin on my face as soon as I opened this set. I do want to add, I didn’t just build the bird because it poops, but also because this variation of the 3-in-1 seems to be the most interesting. The fish and chameleon seem like a bit of an afterthought by the set designers. I can totally see a group of them sitting in a room, ecstatic that the bird has so much functionality, then saying, wait, guys, it’s supposed to be a 3-in-1. Quick, think of something else we can make! Read More
LEGO Reviews 31027 & 31030 Blue Racer & Red Go-Kart
Race cars anyone? Kid Three loves all things cars and vehicles. When these sets were first announced, I knew we had to have them. I know, it’s so childish, but have you seen how cool these look?
31027 Blue Racer
I had to build the mini go-kart. I just couldn’t help myself. I have to admit, I almost bought two of these so I could also build the blue racer. Since I also purchased the Red Go-Kart set, I felt these two would work well together. At some point, I’ll probably take some funny pictures of a Mario and a mini Mario together with the vehicles.

LEGO Review – Creator 31021 Furry Creatures
This was an interesting purchase. The truth is, I didn’t really want to get it. The LEGO store didn’t have the Tropical Animals set at the time when I went in. Our most favorite LEGO Store employee recommended the set to me, so I caved and got it. I figured at the least, I could part harvest it.

I decided to put together the bunny, mainly because I’m not into dogs, and absolutely detest rodents. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the creation in the end. The bunny doesn’t use too many pieces. There are at least 1/3 of the pieces left over, perhaps more. It’s small, cute, and I like it. I think what I like most about it is the cartoon appearance it has.
If you need a quick, inexpensive, set as a gift or *cough* for yourself *cough* this is a good selection. Happy Building!
