Hula Seventy: Lego Love

Contributer post by Andrea of Hula Seventy

I have sort of a love/hate thing for Legos. This is because I am the mother of a five year-old and Legos are everywhere. In our house, they are everywhere. Scattered across the living room floor and the tops of all tables, hidden underneath pillows, rugs and practically every piece of furniture in the house. I swear to you, I've found Legos in the refrigerator. More than once. Also, ask any parent and they will tell you that there is no pain like the pain that comes from stepping on a Lego in the middle of the night. It's brutal. But ultimately, my love for the little plastic bright-colored bricks wins out. Because my kids make awesome things with legos. Actually, people everywhere make awesome things with legos. Behold:


Lego-inspired street art in Italy, Dispatchwork- Jan Vormann



Amazing asymetrical Lego necklace, Oddly Glam



Super cute (and fully functioning) pink Lego camera, Digital Blue



Spectacular Lego kitchen island via Dwell



Probably uncomfortable but completely bananas Lego hat via Smosh


Especially clever Lego wallet via Geeky gadgets



Especially clever Lego Journal (build your own cover design!), Moonlight Bindery


Fantastic Lego table via Inhabitat


Crazy Awesome Lego polaroid camera via Smosh


Super fun Lego crayons, Lil Boo & Co.

Okay, I'm ready to build. How about you?

As the mother of a six year old boy, I'm with you. Our house has been taken over by lego. I moan and grumble and every once in a while threaten to throw it away if it doesn't get picked up, but really I'd have it no other way. Those are the coolest finds. There's also very cool lego soap on etsy which I need to buy.

Thank You for featuring my Lego rings! No need to say I love Lego bricks myself! I had totally forgotten about the pain of stepping on one, though!
Your blog is awesome, I visit every single day!

It's been a while since I smiled so wide at work, thank you for this. I love it all, especially the necklace and that kitchen island. And those crayons are precious!

Mildly obsessed with those Lego rings!

sabrasmith said...

And I'll add -- Legos so yummy you can eat them:
Lego shaped Eggo waffles (which I keep calling L'Eggos anyway...) and Lego stackable fruit snacks. Mmm, mmm, good!

Damn, why did I sell all the kids lego at our garage sale?

I have an ice cube tray that makes ice legos. It totally makes my day every time I go for ice.

Holy-moly, that kitchen island is amazing! I'm such a sucker for Lego stuff and you found some amazing things. I would love to have one of those Lego journals.

I love legos and hate the mess they make. I have 3 sons. I recently lost a lego key chain (along with my keys) I've had for over 5 years...I am most sad about the lost pink lego.
