This perfectly combines story time with the creative challenge that Lego toys bring.

Earlier this month Lego announced the release of “Once Upon A Brick” on Twitter.

 

 

Although the promotion is similar to Samsung’s $2000 Galaxy Fold phone, thankfully the price is much more reasonable at 79.95 Euro, roughly 90 US dollars.

 

It may be a little too early to start Holiday shopping, but this looks like a pretty darn good gift!
