LEGO Pinata!

by Megan S.

Late last year, LEGO, the company known for it's primary colored building blocks, announced it was creating a new line of toys specifically aimed at girls.  The series features pastel-toned sets that don't allow for any real design customization...
because, obviously, girls don't want to exercise their imaginations past playing pretend shopping.  But for those "outliers," the LEGO loving little ladies that can't get enough of the original line, we know an awesome way of celebrating one of their favorite toys:

A DIY LEGO pinata for their (or your) next party!

Sophie over at Sophie's World created the DIY LEGO pinata and walks you through all the steps.  The instructions are simple and the giant LEGO is easy to make.

We have just one suggestion. Along with bags of candy, stuff the pinata with inexpensive LEGO minifigures. The little yellow toys are the perfect addition to the party.

  1. Gee, I must say that that Lego piñata really is the bee's knees... Thanks for this post! ;-)

  2. wow, the contrast between those two pictures is really sad. The thing that ends up irking me the most is that the first one tells girls (and parents) to be proud to build something, and the second seems to be just about spending money. I mean, in both cases they still want me to spend money on legos, but it's much harder to dislike that first ad and it's message that creativity is beautiful.

  3. I remember the first time I got to play with Legos - babysitting my cousin who was a boy. As a teenage girl who was into architectural design & geeky stuff, I thought they were the coolest thing ever. I saved up and bought my own set (which I still have 30 something years later) & added to it over the years. And I spoiled my son (*cough* me *cough*) with every set I could buy. I've built cities, 5 ft. tall buildings, a 2 ft. tall boy (who looked like Ness from Earthbound), a dog (with fire hydrant) & boatloads of other creations. Those "girl legos"? Well, they just make me sad. (Although I do kind of like the girls...) :D
