LEGO Love Thriving at event

If there's one thing LEGO fans are good at, it's connecting. But it still came as a shock when almost 1000 AFOLS turned out at the Coast's first BrickResales event at the University of the Sunshine Coast's Innovation Centre on Saturday. 

Getting a piece of the action

There was some serious needle-in-hay-stack hunting going on yesterday at a LEGO sales and show event, which continues today. A smorgasbord of LEGO parts and sculptures was laid out in the Carinya school hall. Some enthusiasts turned up looking for bits that had gone up the vacuum cleaner over the years. Other diehard builders were starting from scratch, with 2000-plus pieces to find.

LEGO in Education

LEGO takes pride of place in most Queensland kids' toy collections, and now it's taking pride of place in their classrooms as well. 

Once upon a time playing with LEGO was strictly an after-school activity. These days, however, more and more schools are realising the value of the beloved bricks in education - it turns out, they're worth their weight in gold.

BRICKRESALES - Coopers Plains

BrickResales is a massive showroom open to the public that buys and resells quality, pre-loved LEGO for a fraction of the cost of brand new LEGO. 

The owners of Brisbane's first second-hand LEGO store, Judy and Greg, were regulars at local LEGO events like the popular BrisBricks, where thousands of LEGO fanatics would line-up for the chance to dig through tonnes of LEGO to find the right parts for their collections.

How to earn money with your LEGO collection - that’s awesome!

Building with LEGO has been a favourite pastime for kids pretty much since the time the plastic bricks were invented. Many adults are enthusiasts too – known as AFOLs or Adult Fans of LEGO – and it can be an expensive hobby. But, did you know there are ways your collection could help fund your hobby, or even earn you some extra cash?
