TNAP decided to pay a small tribute to this popular children’s toy. Here are our top four picks.

1. The LEGO® Story


Find out how this humble toy brick was invented. For their 80th Birthday celebration, the LEGO® Group created a short animated film to take look back at its history.

2. The Art of The Brick – Nathan Sawaya

Nathan Sawaya, who left his job as an attorney to work full-time as a LEGO artist in 2004, is a New York-based artist who builds custom three-dimensional sculptures and large-scalemosaics from popular everyday items. His unique art creations are commissioned by companies, charities, individuals, museums and galleries all over the world.

Nathan’s Exhibition The Art of The Brick was held in Singapore at The Art Science Museum from 17 November 2012 – 26 May 2013 . If you missed it, you can catch his video below.

LEGO CITY Catch the Crooks Visual

HEIST ALERT!

LEGO City is under attack by the Master Crook! No one knows who this elusive mastermind is, but word has it that he has been lurking around the city, plotting crazy heists at every turn. Every Saturday and Sunday from 4 October to 26 October, 12-8pm, at various Toys ‘R’ Us locations island wide, children are invited to join the ranks of the LEGO City Police as Cadets at the LEGO® BRICKBUSTA event!

The event will give children aged 5 to 12 years old a chance to be real-life detectives, locate suspicious crooks and build their very own LEGO City Police Car! Cadets that successfully complete both activities will stand a chance to receive a LEGO City Police poster signed by a team of LEGO designers.
