Our Lego Room

How's this for a playroom - our very own Lego Room!



When Hubby retired last year he needed a wee project.  So he decided to turn the spare bedroom into a playroom for our two grandsons (although I think there was a more selfish reason!).


He got units to fit around an alcove in the room for storage and a place where the boys could sit and make up Lego.  Some cute lights made it a bit brighter.


Once that was done, then of course the Lego had to be sorted into colour co-ordinated drawers.  Then began the huge task of making up all the Lego our sons had left at home.  I don't for one minute believe this was a task Hubby was dreading - he spent hours up there making up lots of the models.  Fortunately right from our very first Lego purchase, sometime in the 1980s, we had kept all the instruction leaflets which are now in folders.


The railway track was set out and Lego Town was born.


We kept it a secret until our grandsons (aged 5 and 2)came to visit, we only see them a couple of times a year as they live down south, so this was an added bonus.  They were delighted, as was our son!  Granda, Dad and the boys got started on the pieces that had not yet been made up.  The youngest just played with the cars.


After they left, Hubby spent as much time back up in the room "fixing" the "amendments" that had been made to the various models. All the toys and books left behind by our sons are in that room, so it is a great "rainy day" place when the grandsons come to visit.

Love, Liz

Wow! I wouldn't be surprised if you didn't receive visits from your grandsons a bit more often now. X

Oh! How wonderful that the kids have this kind of play area. I have always felt that Legos are much more than toys...they are tools to learning and growing. Lucky kids!!! Have a great Sunday- xo Diana

I love it that you (or rather your hubby!) got a Lego room. As I've been collecting vintage Barbies, I'd love to have a room to display them in, rather than in display cases all around the house. I'm sure your hubby enjoyed every moment of his "wee project" ;-) xxx

Such a wonderful idea, my own Grandsons would love it. I know another Grandad who would love this project.

My 39 year old son would love this. A few years ago he had foot surgery and asked if I could bring his lego boxes to his house, hahaha. He really enjoyed himself.

Your grandsons must love coming to stay! How great to have a hobby room where they can play and have quality time with their Granda!
