LEGO room for your LEGO minifigure

Most LEGO fans are constantly upgrading their LEGO spaces. Some fans have a desk, nook, shelf, or corner of their home dedicated to LEGO, and some have whole rooms decked out with all kinds of storage and display furniture. But why shouldn’t our minifigures or “signature figures” (sigfigs) not have these same luxuries? Instagrammer Brickdesigned sets up minifigure-kind with some LEGO room essential mini-builds.

With these cute mini-builds, we’ve got shelves, tables, mobile storage, and plenty of references to real LEGO products. My favorite reference has to be the storage containers shaped like minifigure heads; Brickdesigned uses the same minifigure heads the containers are based on in his storage build. I also spy with my little eye a few LEGO sets referenced including the architecture line Statue of Liberty as well as the LEGO Ideas ship in a bottle. Brickdesigned really manages to scale down and capture the quintessential LEGO workspace’s essence – a colorful and creative space with all of our favorites.

Back to school, in some way or another, we hope

Is 2020 going to be the year that every kid stays back a grade? I sure hope not! I’m seeing an alarming number of adult students making a mess of their educations this year, with distance learning not being their strong suit. Hopefully, the kiddos are faring better than their parents. In the meantime, Instagram user brickdesigned presents some neat LEGO back-to-school elements. Various desks, lockers, a chalkboard, and those noisy metal benches from chemistry class are surely hitting me in the nostalgic feels. This is usually the time, in the late days of summer, that kids are gearing to go back to school. So whether you’re going to a physical place or learning from home, your old uncle Lino wants you to please make the best of it and be safe out there. Got it, you little whippersnappers? Good! I’m glad we could have this talk. Now get the heck off my lawn!
