  7. [COMMUNITY MANAGER WEEKLY] Raising AFOL

    @Paul Striefler | LEGO Sadly my children have entered their dark age, but I remember those days of rattling boxes, and on one occasion my son rushing in the room when it was still dark outside to share his latest creation. As for the sorting most was kept in a chest of draws like yours, but only loosely sorted plates, bricks minifigs etc As a mocer now, I do not sort takes too much time. Here is the last box remaining from this years build.
  8. [COMMUNITY MANAGER WEEKLY] Raising AFOL

    That is awesome! I was never a sorter, as a kid, and now as an adult. I open up the bags, dump them, and start building. I think for those of us who do not sort, we develop some sort of eagle eye for those parts that we need. Or we get frustrated, start having those thoughts that maybe that part was missed at the factory, and then suddenly we find it. My youngest daughter still builds with her bricks, my oldest daughter still has sets in boxes! I may have to acquire those from her and put them someplace safe. I love that my youngest shares my love for LEGO, I just hope as she gets older she holds onto it!
  9. [COMMUNITY MANAGER WEEKLY] Raising AFOL

    Hey Ambassadors, Happy Friday from the states! I can’t believe that we are already half way thru November. I feel like I was just enjoying the warm sun of summer. I now have the dreadful task of raking leaves and getting prepped for winter. It’s actually not that bad as this my favorite time of year. So…I was sitting on my couch the other night thinking about what to write for the blog today and was having quite a brain fart. My travels are completed for the year, LUGBULK and the Annual Support are in full swing, and I currently do not have any awesome warehouse stories to share. It was at this moment I heard the familiar sound of the swooshing of LEGO Bricks. This is not an unfamiliar sound in my home with two young boys ages 3 and 8 but it was at 10 o’clock at night. I walked up the stairs to my 8 year old Carter’s room where the noise definitely seemed to be getting louder. I opened the door to find him sitting in the middle of his room in his entire collection of LEGO, a huge pile of bricks surrounding him. I asked him what he was up to. His response was classic! “Dad, I couldn’t sleep because I was thinking about sorting.” I laughed as he told me he loves building but was getting frustrated because it would take him hours to sift thru his bin just to build something small. I see a smile on many of your faces! This is a common problem for most of us unless you are truly organized and have the dedicated space. I left his room thinking I have a true AFOL in the making on my hands! This brings me to another question. For those with small children do you let build out of your organized and sorted collection of elements or is this forbidden like Lord Business? I can’t say that I organized in this fashion at all and am not a talented MOCer like all of you. I am sure many of you have experienced this and I would love to hear your thoughts. By the way, after a day of sorting my son has built 3 or 4 MOCs and told me he wanted to display them at the next convention I attend. I’m not surprised but pretty psyched to know my son has drank the kool-aid and I will now be raising an AFOL. I hope that you all have a great weekend! Cheers and Happy Building!

  26. Dear friends,
    due to the amount of work, for some time I will limit myself on being part of only essential conversations, with not more then few sentances per post, three max, and one post per day
    I can feel that my conversations are becomming more influenced by emotions, and I would like to get a grip of that

    too much activity can be as bad as absence of activity :)

    I will be available, if needed

  27. [COMMUNITY MANAGER WEEKLY] Building time

    I picked up the holiday vignettes a couple of weeks ago and the only one built was the Halloween Haunt. I got to visit the Leicester Square store, and even Lester is still in his packaging! However, I did order and received the Woman of NASA set from Ideas. My youngest daughter and I put it together last night. She built the Space Shuttle, and I took care of the other two. I want the Old Fishing Store. It's on my list, also still trying to figure out when I can purchase the Brick Bank, and Assembly Square! I won't be able to pick up Ninjago City, I have to prioritize what sets I can pick up. I do need to get the Winter Village Station! The minifigures that visited Santa's workshop last year were less than impressed by the train platform
  28. [COMMUNITY MANAGER WEEKLY] Building time

    I have to build the old fishing store too. For the moment i'm building the London Bus. A cool set. I hope to find Lester to put inside it.
  29. [COMMUNITY MANAGER WEEKLY] Building time

    Hi all, the days are getting colder, it gets dark very early (basically you get to work in the dark and come back home in the dark) and the year is coming slowly to the end so it is time to spend a lot of time on building LEGO Sets. So I started to get the sets I wanted to build but had no time to do so until now so first one was the new LEGO House Set, lately the Saturn 5 rocket and now I am working on the Winter Village Station. It is a lot of fun but it takes now a little longer as my 3 year old son is so much into LEGO building now that he always wants to help. That is really great. Next on my list will be the Old Fisihing Store and Ninjago City (need to see where to place that one as I run out of space in my LEGO room). At work I spend a lot of time on planning cool AFOL related activities with my LEGO House colleagues as well as slowly start to wrap up the passing year and start out plannung for the upcoming year so there will be hopefully a smooth transition and new great things to come for the AFOL Community and the LEGO Group. Have a great weekend and keep on building!
  30. A night @ the LEGO House

    Good luck everybody!! I hope the lucks goes to someone from the AFOL community
