DK Books has been publishing a number of LEGO-inspired titles for a number of years now. Although those which feature LEGO® Minifigures or Minibuilds are often the most exciting, occasionally there are books like LEGO Life Hacks. There may not be any physical LEGO elements included with the book but the inspirational books found throughout are certainly worth a look. So here’s my review of the LEGO Life Hacks book.
This book is bursting with more than 50 smart ideas to streamline your life and accessorise your space. You’ll find stationery hacks help you organise your desk, cool ideas to make the most of your tech, and gadgets to blitz your boring chores. From a speaker that amplifies your phone, a weekly planner made of LEGO bricks, and a catapult that flings paper into the wastepaper basket, these ideas will make your LEGO bricks work for you. Discover ways to personalise your living space, from photo frames to brick-built houseplants, plus smart ways to display your favourite LEGO builds and minifigures. These creative ideas will inspire you to use your LEGO bricks in awesome new ways.
With amazing images, easy to follow step-by-step instructions and handy tips for further building, this book will take your building to the next level.

As mentioned above, books with actual LEGO bricks or Minifigures included with them are certainly the most interesting, with other titles featuring stories or build ideas seeming a little pointless. LEGO Life Hacks doesn’t include any LEGO pieces but it does offer some interesting ideas to build with your own bricks. The book is split into 5 chapters – Useful Tricks, Tech Hacks, Upgrade Your Room, Stationery Hacks and Wacky Inventions. Each chapter offers inspiration to create builds to help with things such as a key holder and phone stand or for fun such as an Emergency Brick Separator box. All of the inspirational builds have been provided by Nate Dias and Barney Main. I’d certainly recommend having a look through the book, with the lack of bricks, it’s the perfect title to pick up in digital form.
The LEGO Life Hacks book is published by DK Books and is available now from Amazon and other book retailers.
