Muji Christmas – Playing with LEGO® bricks and Paper

December 26, 2011

Recently I found a muji store (description on wikipedia)and discovered this sort of Lego set. A Christmas decoration set with paper and LEGO® bricks. There were also a set called “mobility” and a basic set but since it is christmas, we bought the christmas muji LEGO® set.

This Set contains LEGO® bricks and Paper. A leaflet featuring example productions is included. Enjoy cutting Paper and using the LEGO® brick hole puncher. The puncher is sold separately, so that you only have to buy it once. The christmas set contains 120bricks and twelve Papers.


Giant Christmas tree – St. Pancras London

December 25, 2011

We’ve been to London recently and couldn’t get past the Christmas tree in St. Pancras London. It’s gigantic. A 12.2m-high Christmas tree made entirely of LEGO® bricks. It took two months to build it and it is made from 600.000 bricks. More than 1,000 LEGO® baubles have been used to decorate the 172 branches. It’s great work and oc course we had to see it.
