Every time I walk through my kids' room, there is inevitably a random LEGO to be stepped on. When the LEGOs make their way to the rest of the house I find myself pulling my hair out wanting to through them all away. Then I stumble upon the LEGO Ideas website, and I'm reminded of what great building blocks they are for the imagination. (pictured above is White Lake House)
LEGO Ideas is another brilliant idea by LEGO. Anyone can submit an idea to be built. They just have to gather 10,000 votes of support and then their idea will be reviewed and possibly turned into a LEGO product and sold around the world. Genius idea for LEGO to not have to pay designers nor advertisers. I mean they've convinced millions of people that they need tons of tiny pieces of plastic and now they are getting us to do their work for them too, sheer genius. (pictured to the left is Box N)
Some of the designs are truly impressive. Click on the links to see more about the designs and projects. This Modern Modular Furnished Beach Front House is one of my favorites. It was originally designed in pink, but I love the grey shown here.
House of Incredibles and Lego Architecture Studio Project were two other fun ones that caught my eye.
Madoka's House is another of my favorites. None of these designs have enough needed support to become a product, but I really appreciate the efforts of the designers and love seeing more modern design out there. Now maybe the next time I'm screaming as I jam another LEGO brick under foot, I'll think of what cool creation it could have been.
