Isaac built this cool little ranch. It holds many cool things such as safes, horses and various traps!

The Lego Group got its start in 1932. Following a fire in founder Ole Kirk Christensen’s woodworking shop, he started making toys out of surplus lumber, ditching the carpentry gig and dedicating his time to a whole lineup of wooden piggy banks, cars, trucks, and houses. It wasn’t until 1947 that they even began producing the trademark interlocking plastic bricks, and sales were initially very disappointing.

The minifig didn’t debut until 1975. Over 4 billion minifigs have been produced to date. These are the little dudes with cupped hands, and they're expected to exceed the human population by 2019.

The name LEGO comes from the Danish phrase Leg Godt. This means “play well." Coincidentally, it also means “I put together” in Latin.

Lego Iron Man Laboratory part 2

Here's a closer look at our Lego Iron Man Laboratory!

As you can see, there is room for two Iron Man suits to be exposed and another one in the centre piece. Tony has a computer desk, which actually rotates. There are also various computers on the walls, which Pepper can use. There's even the robot "helper" from the films.

We are not done yet but this is a good sign of what's to come.

Minecraft 3D

We love Minecraft and one thing we've been wanting to try was to play it in 3D!

You can play Minecraft in astounding 3D-o-scope by turning this option on and wearing red-cyan 3D glasses. The fx works great and bring a whole new "dimension" to the gameplay. Very cool!

I know we're a little late but we wanted to post these. For the first time we went to the annual Christmas parade outside in the cold. It was totally worth it and lots of fun. I wanted for Isaac to experience this at least once… especially since he still believes in Santa. We went with my girlfriend and her girl, Calixa.

Don't forget that the Lego movie comes out today!
