LEGO: New YouTube Channel + $1,000 Giveaway! #LEGOChannel

I’ve always loved LEGOs.  Hmm, can I honestly say that?  I’ve never actually owned one single LEGO as a child but I’ve always wanted to!  The building possibilities are endless!  You can build life size creations out of LEGOs or small castles for Barbies or forts for GI Joes.  Does GI Joe have a fort?  I don’t know but I think he should and I hope to build him one…some day.


I’ve already bought a few LEGO sets for my little girl even though she’s too young to play with them right now.  Just to make sure all the pieces were there, her Daddy and I assembled them and reassembled them a few times.  LEGOs are so much fun, I can’t wait until she’s old enough to play with them.  Her cousins have a room dedicated to nothing but LEGOs.  The Hobbit LEGOS, Star Wars LEGOs, and about a bazillion tiny LEGO bricks.  It’s pretty cool!


Hobbit LEGOS


LEGO is without a doubt a household name and a brand that children {and adults} have loved for years.  Recently, they’ve opened up a great new YouTube Channel with OVER 500 videos spanning a wide range of topics!  This is fabulous on so many levels.  It’s designed as a space that is trustworthy for kids but I can attest that adults will find it entertaining as well.  Plus, my daughter has starting to watch YouTube videos more and more.  She loves them!  If you have kids you know that they love repetition.  That means that I end up watching the same video over and over.  With LEGO’s channel I don’t have to!  I have the option to create my personalized playlists.  This is handy if I want to leave her with the iPad while I vacuum or empty the dishwasher real quick.  She’s happily entertained and I know that she won’t be exposed to anything I don’t want her to be.


The variety of content on the channel includes:

  • Videos featuring themed LOGO sets like the Hobbit, Chima, Ninjago, Star Wars, & more.
  • LEGO Club TV covering a variety of topics.
  • Brand info. straight from LEGO.
  • LEGO video game videos.
  • LEGO board game videos.
  • Videos about LEGO designers.
  • LEGO fan videos.
  • LEGO TV commercials.
  • Adorable LEGO Duplo cartoons {my favorite!}
There is a lot of content on the web; creating a playlist on the Official LEGO® Channel is a great way to ensure your kids are entertained and watching videos you can feel good about.  Give it a try and see what you think for yourself!

Visit the Official LEGO® Channel to build your own playlist to watch with your kids and then reply below for a chance to win one (1) $1,000 gift card to buy your family’s favorite LEGO® products!
