MUJI Lego kits make Lego an even more creative toy

by Mark R

muji_legoI’ve seen a lot of cool things done with Legos, such as the Lego Ferris Wheel and even the Lego Darth Vader TIE Fighter.

This one design from MUJI has got to be one of the most original that I have ever seen. As you can see, the basic kit comes with a bunch of bricks, and some material hardly ever used with Lego: paper.

Yes, the MUJI has some paper with some punch out holes as well as a hole puncher. The idea is that you take pieces of paper and stick them in between bricks for some unique creations, like that alligator that you see from the picture.

As someone who still plays with Legos as an adult, I can’t believe that I hadn’t thought of this use before. Especially since my wife is an avid scrapbooker, and has all kinds of hole punchers. I’m sure that one of them, along with a good handful of bricks, could have made this MUJI kit. I swear, it’s time I start inventing and marketing goods instead of reporting on them.

As you might have guessed by the label on the MUJI kit, it is only available in Japan. Hopefully the kits will be available in other countries, but if you are in Japan, you can get it starting November 27th.
