How to Surprise Your Kid with "The Legend of the LEGO Island"

Lego Island-6




Lego Island-8
Most kids love and play with Lego at home. At home, we only have a few Lego blocks and Aidan would love to create a boat or an airplane. You would need a lot of imagination to create one just from a few standard blocks.

Lego Island-16
This is my cue to tell him a story of an Island entirely made of Lego in a far far away land...

Lego Island
Of Big Ships and a Shipyard entirely made of Lego...

Lego Island-4
An island where the citizens and buildings are made of Lego...

Lego Island-7
Legends of actual airplanes made of Lego...

Lego Island-5
I let him imagine what a lego gasoline station would look like...

Lego Island-10
Aidan's favorite is the helicopter and I would share stories about helicopters flying over the Lego Island...

Lego Island-13
If he loves horses, tell a story about a farm full of trees, corns pineapples and horses...

Lego Island-11
Or tell a story about MRT Lego trains around the island...

- after building your LEGO creation, Canon will take your picture and post it on the LEGO Photo wall above and uploaded to LEGO Christmas Land.

(Warning: The website is just another LEGO marketing gimmick, the photos are not even uploaded immediately. I guess that is why there is no commitment on when it will be uploaded, maybe next year :)
