Building with Lego!


Here in NYC, it's almost the summer solstice! It's been hot lately- over 90F! As a result, I've been staying inside and getting out some of my toys that I haven't played with before.


This set is from the Lego Friends line; it's a little penguin on a little iceberg! I'm excited to build it, especially because thinking about the freezing Antarctic sounds very appealing right now.


The first thing I did was dump out all the pieces on my table. I know some people like to put the pieces in little dishes, but since this set is so small, I didn't think it was necessary.


As I carefully assembled the little iceberg home from the penguin, I thought about what it would be like to be a scientist studying polar animals. That would be so cool!


Legos are so fun! The worst thing about Legos is when you leave one on the floor and step on it in the middle of the night when you're going to the bathroom. Ouch! Has that ever happened to you?


Soon I had almost completely assembled the iceberg house for my penguin! Hoorah! The house even has a little slide- have you ever seen videos of penguins sliding around? I think my toy penguin will also be a fan of sliding on her belly down her little blue slide.


I attached the slide to the iceberg house, put my penguin's fish in its little dish, and put a silly bow on the penguin's head.  It looks adorable, don't you think?

Have you ever built a project with Legos? Also, what do you think I should name my little penguin?

In this entry I'm wearing: Journey's Girls London tee. (P.S. Can you tell I left a little plastic thingeroo sticking out of my tee? Yikes!)


  1. I love lego frineds! I have Andrea's bedroom and Olivia's desk. The set is super cute!

  4. Hi Inky! :)
    I love reading your blog! I think you are so great and I absolutely adore your bedroom! I nominated you for the MagNeoBio award on my blog:
    Thank you, Inky! :)

  5. Blogger is not letting me see my favorite blogs in a reading list, so I'm having a hard time. But, anyway this was so fun! Some of the girls here like legos and a set with a penguin would be a big hit!
