The art supply store near work sells these mystery minifigs and I got addicted to them on their second run. They come one to a package and you never know what’s inside. Or do you? On the second run there were special bar codes on each pack and you could look them up and you’d [...]

I wish I knew what set of toys this fellow came with. I remember flat, plastic, checkerboard floors (grey?) that walls (green?) slid into and I remember Nurse Nelly. I think it’s safe to assume that there was assorted hospital furnishings too.
My mother asked about the size of the bricks used in the Japan style Lego project in my previous post, so I took a couple pictures to show just how small they are. I dug through Ari’s regular Lego collection and tried to find matching bricks. As you can see, they dwarf the Nanoblocks: And [...]
Ari was sent a giant package from Japan including this micro lego set. It’s a little beyond Ari’s abilities (or rather, her patience and willingness to build something so detailed) so after her and Shannon completed the first 4 levels, I took it over and snapped a picture at the end of each level.

So, as I already stated, I am Atheist, but I did live with an Irish/Italian Catholic for a few years and his good old fashioned guilt must have rubbed off on me a bit because right now I am compelled to admit something. I stole this from my mom: Yes, I was into Strawberry Shortcake [...]
Today was Ari’s 6th birthday. I think it was probably her most eagerly anticipated birthday yet, and has been talked about for almost a year. The day went very well, Ari helped me bake and decorate her own cake this morning: Served on my grandmother’s wedding china, yes. I am no cake decorator, that’s for [...]
I’ve decided I want a dollhouse. I know. It’s a little weird. Hear me out: My best friend Veronica had a dollhouse when we were growing up. It was a Lundby, and she probably got it in the late 70′s. Her dad was in charge of buying all the furniture and accoutrements so mostly it [...]
Lucky for me, I live with a newly 5 year old who got crazy amounts of presents for her birthday. One such gift (from Oma?) arrived at our house a few weeks ago and has sat untouched since then. I got the bug to build today, so I helped myself to the blocks and built [...]
Not related to World’s Littlest Snoopy. You’re right. His mouth IS the funniest part. Plus he is a bobble head, in theory.
I went toy shopping today for an upcoming birthday. Did you know that there are these new Barbies in the universe? Don’t get me wrong, I love America’s Next Top Model, like, LOVE, it’s sort of the best reality show out there. If you don’t count Project Runway or Big Brother. Or Survivor. Ultimate Fighter [...]
