Blog Christmas Special: Do-it-yourself LEGO Star Wars
My six year old son Noah and I are self confessed LEGO and Star Wars addicts. Most Saturday mornings we are to be found in a sea of plastic bricks spread out on a purple blanket making all manner of things while sipping coffee. Like most parents though, I’m terrified of toy shops for the price of the box sets – the LEGO B-Wing Fighter costs £199 for goodness sake. My car only cost a few pounds more. In the spirit of make do and mend therefore, we have attempted to build the whole of the Star Wars universe out of common or garden bricks found in our own LEGO box. So that means recreating Imperial Walkers and X-Wing fighters from bits of Fire Station, castle and snack bars. It’s much cheaper and much more fun. Save yourselves £££ and give it a go!
