Click & Snap: That Is One Big Pile Of Bricks

One of my favourite films is Jurassic Park, I fondly remember going to see in the cinema multiple times way back in 1993. I would of been just 10 years old and I remember being a mixture of scared but amazed at seeing dinosaurs being brought to life. So I was delighted when it was revealed we would be getting a LEGO® Jurassic World theme. Although based on the new trilogy, we have been treated to a set based on the Raptor kitchen...

A Look At LEGO…. Microscale

I think we can all agree that LEGO® Minifigures are pretty awesome, for the past 40 odd years they have been inhabiting LEGO sets and beyond, adding an extra level of fun to LEGO play. But sometimes their small stature can be a too little big to create the prefect LEGO recreation of various vehicles, building or locations. Over the years Microscale builds have become more commonplace in LEGO sets, from entire themes like LEGO...
