The LEGO Movie Debut

By Amy Eiduke, Communications Director

After counting down the days and checking the calendar endlessly, today is the day! The opening of the much anticipated LEGO Movie! Ok, maybe this movie premier is not as much of a priority in your household, but in mine, with two young boys, you can’t hold back the excitement.

LEGOs were invented in 1949 and have grown into a remarkable toy empire. In fact, have you seen the design for the new Lego experience center set to be built in Billund, Denmark? It’s amazing! Why are these little interlocking blocks so popular? Because they are fun, creative, innovative and can be completely unique to you. The possiblities of what you can create are endless – airplanes, animals, cars, bridges and of course, homes. Quite a few architects’ careers have begun with Legos. Legos also help make a house feel like home – I love sitting around the table building with my sons.

Take a look to see how Legos and home can be a perfect combination:

Check out how these artists repurposed old toys in their home… the Lego kitchen island is quite impressive.

Here’s a home that was inspired by and built for Legos.

So whether or not you go to see The Lego Movie, take a moment to be inspired and let your creativity go wild!
