We're solidly a LEGO house around here. As a mom to three boys-ages 2, 5, and 6-I wade through a LEGO minefield everytime I venture into the depths of my boy's rooms. It's not just a toy-it's a way of life for us.
My older two boys are already on their winter vacation so you can imagine how excited I was to learn about the LEGO Minifigure Family Holiday Card site. This online experience allows you to create your own minifigure family and share it with (or without) the holiday message of your choice.
Through the website you can choose your minifigure's skin tone, hair, outfit, even add fun things like Santa hats! They even have minifgure cats and dogs so the entire family is represented. After you design your minifigures you can set the scene with anything from a dude ranch to beach!
I'll show you the holiday card I designed, I went the realistic route showing our family.
Super cute right? Well you can imagine what my sons thought when they mosied past me while I was playing around making my minifigure card-they couldn't wait to get their turn! After I finished my card I let them have their own turn.
Seriously-this was like an early Christmas present allowing me a solid thirty minutes of peace and productivity while my boys decided on what kind of minifigures to design! Here is what they came up with:
Apparently I am the only one in the family who is not a ninja. And we reside in the desert.
The possibilities are really endless with what you can create, and when you are finished you can easily download your pictures or share them on social media-too cool!
Here's a video to show how you can make your own LEGO Minifigure Family.
Are you living in crazy LEGO mania like I am? I'd love to see your LEGO Minifigure Family-leave me a link to your creation in the comments using the Share tool after you create your own!
