More about toys and serendipity

LEGO has a very clever marketing department.

I recently ordered some parts from their “pick a brick” service with the idea of using them to make model aircraft stands.  I have previously used this service to source the bricks for the dam in my “Dambusters” playtest game.

Every online order gets a free gift set.  As it happens, my free gift arrived today before the main order, but that’s another tale.

In the gift set you will find some unusual and unorthodox bricks that you never knew existed.  My set was a vase of tulips, illustrated here with the quirkier bricks used in the construction.

Having seen these I have revised my ideas for how to build better aircraft stands, so another order may well be sent, and yet more unusual bricks will be revealed…
