I don’t know about you, but we live with a 6 and a half (never forget the half) year-old boy who is obsessed with LEGOS. They are always at the top of his Christmas list. Last year Nicholas’ favorite gift was the LEGO train he got from my dad. Guess what he asked Santa for this year? Another LEGO train. Sigh.
So when I got the opportunity to work with LEGO on their new Minifigure postcard website, I knew I had to say yes. It is super easy (and free!) to create these adorable personal LEGO postcards of your family. Just go to the website and click “get started.” You can easily add each member of your family and personalize their face, hair, clothes, even skin color.
If you are like us and never got around to taking that perfect Christmas card photo, emailing these to friends and family could be a fun and affordable alternative.
It was very easy to create and Nick was super excited to see himself as a minifigure. I love the gap in the front teeth that matches his real-life gap while his teeth grow in! I wouldn’t mind if my hair looked that nice every day either.
I chose to put our family inside by the fire. (Yes, it took me a minute to realize we chose the option with the Kwanza candles. Oops. There is a similar scene with Christmas stockings that we can choose next time if we want.) There are a bunch of other scene selections and holiday greetings to pick from too, from the office to a horse ranch. I’m sure you can find exactly the right fit for your family.
