Is it a good step for LEGO to move from traditional toys to computer controlled robots ?


Is it a good step for LEGO to move from traditional toys to computer controlled robots ? I think that it definitely is and it adds a new dimension to the playing experience of LEGO fans. Personally, I can't wait to build my first moving cat from LEGO. :-) And you ?
I had a chance to visit the Spielwarenmesse 2017 in Nurnberg, the biggest toy fair, which is said to be a place where international toy markets come together.

LEGO had their booth in there as well, of course.

I didn't know what to expect from it as it was the first time when I visited such a big toy fair. Frankly, the guided tour around LEGO booth was so quick that if you asked me the other day on one thing that I remember, it would be the CAT, the moving cat. :-)
In other words, thank you, LEGO, for being so innovative and creative this year and coming with brand new ideas such as the LEGO Boost.
I will definitely support your great idea and will buy the LEGO Boots set as soon as it is available for sale for Czech Republic! :-)

What are your thoughts about the LEGO Boots ?

I will be very happy if you let me know in comments bellow.


The FROG - Star of the new Carousel !


Jump, Jump, Jump, ... :-) You think that you've already seen the frog somewhere ? This beautiful green creature stars in the new LEGO Carousel 10257 and definitely deserves our attention.
Usually being a frog do not make you a glory but in this case she outshone other five animals - an elephant, tiger, swan and a flamingo ! :-)
She's made out of 63 pieces, mostly a combination of light and dark green.

  She has a movable mouth with a red tongue always prepared to provide her with a good lunch.

Her legs are incredible ! I'm sure that she might compete with real frogs in jumping.

Thanks to a few LEGO Technic pieces, her legs very well imitate real frog's legs.

Isn't the frog cute ?!? :-) Moreover, it's a great build considering the number of pieces.

Is the frog also your star out of the five animals in the new Carousel ?

Two hottest LEGO sets of this summer ? - Apollo Saturn V and Carousel


Summer holidays are here - the sun, the sea and days of relaxation ! ... :-)  LEGO does keep us busy also during these hot summer days with new cool releases.
I've been currently working on the 3rd edition of the Brick Market Report which should once again provide you with comprehensive and up-to-date look at LEGO sets released during Q2 2017.
2017 has been immensely rich year for us LEGO fans thanks to a number of new great releases. We witnessed introduction of long awaited LEGO Ideas Apollo Saturn V and its fast sold out at the same time. Second wave of LEGO Batman Movie sets filled shelves of toy stores all around the world. 17th Collectible Minifigure Series has enjoyed a big popularity not only thanks to the mysterious campaign for the Highwayman. Also new fresh LEGO Jungle sub theme hit the market in Q2 2017... And LEGO Technic celebrates 40 years in a big style with amazing BMW R 1200 GS and other cool sets this year. 
What are the two hottest LEGO sets released during Q2 2017 that impressed me the most out of more than 100 new sets ? Definitely the LEGO Carousel by CREATOR and the NASA Apollo Saturn V by IDEAS !
