LEGO Creates Anti-LEGO Slippers To End 66 Years Of Horrible Pain

Few forms of sadistic torture in this world are more excruciatingly painful than having to walk across a field of LEGO left on the ground by a careless child.
Fortunately, there is now a way to protect yourself from these domestic minefields: LEGO, working together with French advertising agency Brand Station, has invented anti-LEGO slippers!
It only took them 66 years, too!

The slippers, which feature tons of padding, will be produced in a limited run of 1,500 and will be distributed randomly to people who fill out Christmas wish-lists on LEGO’s French website.
This is the perfect way to make those lucky parents’ Christmas dreams come true!

LEGO are great, but they have one fatal flaw…

Teacher Uses LEGOs To Explain Math To School children

As if LEGO’s weren’t enough of an awesome childhood toy, one teacher has found another awesome educational/developmental use for this super-toy – as a math education aid! Alycia Zimmerman, a 3rd-grade teacher in New York, uses them to explain fractions, squares and other mathematical concepts.

“In the classroom, the tiny bricks are now my favorite possibility-packed math manipulative,” she writes in an article for Scholastic that goes more into depth about these bricks’ potential uses.

Guy Builds Amazing Lego Star Destroyer With Three-Level Interior

Imgur user doomhandle shared his recently completed Tyrant Imperial Star Destroyer and it’s awesome. Measuring 4 ft, 7 in (1.4 m) long and weighing over 70 pounds (32 kg); it also features a three-level interior with characters, ships and removable sections.

The design is based on the 2014 LEGO Star Destroyer Set (75055) and the custom-design was built entirely with readily available LEGO pieces. It’s about 20 times the size of the official LEGO Star Destroyer set which allows for a lot more customization inside.

I’ve included exterior and interior shots below, but be sure to check out the full 45-picture album on Imgur where doomhandle goes into far more detail about the build and components of the ship.

We are approaching the last two weeks of the School Summer Holidays, the Summer hasn’t been very kind so far and as usual the weather in Hebden Bridge has been somewhat on the dire side.
We have been quite busy re-stocking and our Dolls Selection was hit quite hard though now we are back to the full compliment of Dolls including Mia at £9.99, and Isabella in her car seat. Yesterday Talking Tammy and Little Treasure from Doll’s World also made an appearance. We have some doll’s pushchairs in stock as well, we are probably the only supplier of Doll’s Pushchairs in the Calder Valley.

LEGO Ninjago Movie Sets and More LEGO

LEGO Ninjago Movie Sets, Lego Architecture and even more LEGO

Much to our surprise we received our inbound order of LEGO Ninjago Movie Sets far earlier than we were expecting. This has thrown us a bit on Social Media Listings and getting the Word out, although Robert A Williams [blog Author] did put a Facebook post about the new sets as soon as they were in at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop.

From the all new LEGO Ninjago Movie Sets we have the following exciting new LEGO Models:

  • Lego Ninjago 70606 Spinjitzu Training
  • Lego Ninjago 70607 NINJAGO® City Chase
  • Lego Ninjago 70608 Master Falls
  • Lego Ninjago 70609 Manta Ray Bomber
  • Lego Ninjago 70611 Water Strider
  • Lego Ninjago 70612 Green Ninja Mech Dragon
  • Lego Ninjago 70613 Garma Mecha Man
  • Lego Ninjago 70614 Lightning Jet
  • Lego Ninjago 70615 Fire Mech

As well as all these exciting Lego Ninjago Movie Sets we also have the all new LEGO Ninjago Movie Minifgures, of which there are twenty to collect.

According to Cineworld the Lego Ninjago Movie is due for release on 13th October 2017 which possibly will coincide with some school’s autumn half-term break.

If it is anywhere near as popular as The LEGO Batman Movie then we are in for a treat.

As well as Lego Ninjago, another new line for us here at Silly Billy’s is the LEGO Architecture range, to try this out we have a limited supply of the all new Arc de Triomphe Set 21036, we are hoping that the LEGO Architecture range will be very popular here at Silly Billy’s as there are a lot of Architects and designers living in Hebden Bridge including the acclaimed Architectonic just a few doors down the road.
Lego Architecture 21036

This weekend in Hebden Bridge is the Classic Car Rally as organised by the Rotary Club, this is always a great event for anyone that is into classic motor vehicles, please visit this link to find out more. Silly Billy’s has seen all the Hebden Bridge Vintage Car weekends in the time Silly Billy’s has been over the past twenty years
