LEGO Picks of the Month: October 2017

Today being Halloween, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish you a fun a spooky one! 🎃🍬👻

LEGO Picks of the Month: October 2017

Being the last day of the month, here’s the latest issue of our “LEGO Picks of the Month” online magazine – for the benefit of those who are new to The Bricks Hub, “LEGO Picks of the Month” is a free online magazine released on the last day of the month (usually) where we’ll do a recap of everything we’ve featured on our Facebook page throughout the entire month.

In this month’s issue, you’ll find:

✔️ How a stay-at-home dad have been creating the most relatable parenting situations out of LEGO

✔️ A fan built Medieval Blacksmith Shop (if you’re into Medieval builds, this one is a “must have” in your LEGO collection!)

✔️ How you can become a LEGO master and turn your hobby into a full time job (Yes, it’s possible!)

✔️ Why kids should N.E.V.E.R. let go of LEGO (no matter how much technology has advanced)

✔️ A 4-story corner modular building where you’ll find an ice-cream parlor, a pizzeria, along with 2 single-bedroom apartments (the details of both the exterior and interior of this build is just awesome!)

✔️ Not sure if your other half will mind this one but, it’s possible to furnish your entire home with LEGO-style furnishings!

✔️ And much, much more…
