Ive often wondered if my kids Lego collection is extensive enough to completely cover their room. I swear, if they snapped all of their pieces together in one column, they could talk to the Man in the Moon nose-to-nose. Of course, that would be crazy, only a lunatic would try such a thing.
As luck would have it, Lunatic Construction now furnishes Legos that they call LunaBlocks, just in case any of us wacky adults never got in enough Lego building time in our youth. The blocks come in glass, metal, soft and pillow textures to allow for the construction of anything from coffee tables to loveseats.
Although Im pretty sure my level of home décor and sophistication is far beyond wanting to see Lego Land in my living room, my kids would really dig building-block beds, tables and bookshelves in their room.
One of the coolest features of the Lunatic collection is that you just order the pieces and construct your own creation. It truly is Lego-building. Whats even greater is that just like your little ones, when you tire of your creation or find that it isnt as stable or cool as youd originally thought, you can simply reshape it into another design. One day its a table for doing homework, the next day its a shoe rack.
The only problem that I see with this system is that it looks so easy that even your five-year-old could do it. And you know what that means, right? If you dont actually have a five-year-old handy, youre sunk. Luckily, I have a 10-year old, so thats like having two five-year-olds, right? And a husband with Peter Pan syndrome, so thats like a whole classroom of five-year-olds. Theyd have a blast building furniture and real-life items out of these humongous Legos, which really do come in bright, primary Lego-style colors. Im just not sure how that would go with my French impressionist art collection or shelves of classic literature.
