Taking the LEGO® Obsession to a Whole New Level!

Our LEGO Obsession

In a house full of kids…. there is little doubt that at any point in time, someone is in the middle of a LEGO® obsession. And I’ve come to the conclusion after carefully study of my very own focus group (6 Rowley kids) that this LEGO® obsession has a definitive life cycle (at least in our household!): LEGO® Life Cycle Taking the LEGO® Obsession to a Whole New Level! And sometimes all it takes is for just one of the kids to move into this uber-creative phase, and the next thing you know- they are all right there in it with him, creating LEGO® movies as an entire production team! Two of my sons had the chance to take a stop-motion animation class as part of an after-school program, and my son Jack really fell in love with it! Fortunately Santa delivered a gift of a stop-motion webcam and accompanying software as a Christmas present, and Jack and his movie-making team have been hard at work ever since. Creating original movies- all with LEGO® pieces! Now Jack insisted that none of his films were yet ready for prime-time viewing, so I am unable to share any with you at this time. And truthfully- my little director has become a bit stuck for new ideas on how to set up scenes and write a script that he can use. So I searched online for some videos to share with him…. and I found a great resource- not only for budding stop-motion-animation directors like my 9-year-old, but also for LEGO® fanatics at whatever phase they are in… the LEGO® You Tube channel! (How cool is that?)

The LEGO®  You Tube Channel

One of the things that I really like about finding videos here on the LEGO® YouTube channel is that you can find videos that you want to show your kids, and save them to playlists. And if you have a myriad of devices (as my family does), you can access your YouTube channel and the videos you saved to your to-do list from nearly anywhere…. on your iPad while watching a sibling’s gymnastics class, from an iTouch while waiting to be seen at the doctor’s office, from an iPhone while stuck in the car on the long ride to a soccer game!

To save you the trouble of figuring it all out for yourself… I’ll share with you “the deets” on creating your own You Tube LEGO® channel playlist!

My kids spent an hour watching videos that I had set up on my YouTube playlist tonight…. scoping out ideas for future stop-motion animation projects! This was s huge hit! I was selected for this opportunity by BlogFrog and compensated by LEGO®.

OMG! I have to check this out and share it with the kids! We’ve been through the same phases. My 7 year old is in the uber-creative phase. It’s amazing what he creates with Legos.

I downloaded the Lego movie app for the iPhone. Have you tried it yet?
