Life-size LEGO cups


This is Laura and me toasting in the LEGO store at Potsdamer Platz in Berlin. We’re crazy about those cups!
They too are available in a Friends colour, but I’m not too fond of that version.


The blue one on the other hand reminds me so much of my early childhood fun times with LEGO.
There’s just one little downside to the cups; holding that handle is quite awkward. The plastic cuts into your hand and it definitely does not fit into a human hand as well as it does into a LEGO figure hand.


But who cares really? They look great!


We are going to Berlin! 


And it’s not just me and Sebastian, Marie is there too! It’s just a little vacation, but I’m really looking forward to it! Copenhagen is my hometown, Dublin is my second hometown, but Berlin will always be my favorite city! 

A fun story about Sebastian. The racecar driver is my favorite minifig, and he was quickly named Sebastian after German Formula 1 driver Sebastian Vettel. Vettel is now driving for Ferrari as of this season, and even though I’m not a Ferrari fan, it pleases me, since the race outfit now fits in color. And also because he’s back in a winning car, but that’s a whole other story. 

I will join Marie in Berlin tomorrow, and I asked her – she remembered her Minifig, so we will post some of our adventures, here and on Facebook. Stay tuned! 

Friends figs for sale


Oh, what to do with all those Friends figs I’ve slowly accumulated? Though I’m not a fan of the theme, sometimes I like a set and buy it anyway. I just don’t want the figs. What would you do with them then?

LEGO Swamp Police starter set 60066

I generally like the City theme, but I don’t think there’s enough change in the police sub theme. Each year a new police station, a helicopter and some different cars. Not that interesting to me. The forest police, however, was quite nice and a great variation with its bears and wooden buildings. Now the quite parallel swamp police is here. And I’m sceptical. Probably because it seems like a lot of work to add a whole swamp to my city.
For Christmas, I got the starter set 60066. And I must admit that it is fun and really good value for money: four minifigures, three animals (one of them a crocodile!), two means of transportation and a





All in all a nice little set. And I might just go ahead and buy more from the swamp theme. What do you think?
