Global block toy brand "LEGO". I couldn't buy it easily, and I often played at the child's house that lived on the upper floor of the condominium. I remember being very happy to receive a minifig when I moved.
Finally, I can buy it with my own money, and I look at it at a toy store, but I don't know how to play this time. It's really useless to assemble an ideal house or fortress like in the old days ... If I was vague about things like that, I was told that there is a workshop for adults "Adult Lego Class" so I will go. I made it. Is it okay for adults with Lego blanks?
◆ To the dreamland made of Lego
The adult LEGO classroom is an event that is held irregularly at the "Legoland Discovery Center Tokyo" in Odaiba, Tokyo. The facility is usually not accessible to "adults only", but event participants can go around the facility specially. We recommend that you go early as you can deepen your knowledge of Lego and appreciate the amazing Lego works.
◆ "Adult Lego classroom" was more popular than I expected!
In the space where adult Lego classes are held, "master builder workshops" are usually held for children.
Many of the participants on this day were couples and friends, but some of them were mothers who came as a family and participated alone, and fathers with children (only adults can make them).
◆ Start playing Lego
The theme this time is "Pocket Tissue Case". Yoshihiro Osawa, a master builder known as a "Lego craftsman," who is currently certified by only 13 people in the world, will be the instructor.
First of all, we will assemble the foundation of the house using the parts distributed in advance. It's easier than I expected because Mr. Osawa's hand is projected on the front monitor. By the way, it seems that the round protrusions of Lego are called "potch" in Japan, but this feeling is too nostalgic ...!
Once you have a skeleton, from here you can make walls using your favorite blocks. When I look back, there are many colorful blocks behind the classroom. It's like a dream that you can use this freely!
Completed by attaching the roof and door as it is. I intended to imagine Christmas, but it has become a rather calm house. By the way, the roof is openable and can store pocket tissue and small items inside.
When the work is completed, it will be dissolved freely, but there are some people who are particular about making it until the end of the time. Some people made such a wonderful mosaic art. When I was a kid, Lego blocks had a strong image of primary colors, but now there are more than 60 variations. About 30 colors were prepared this time, but it may be easier to make by image training in advance because it is still quite confusing.
You can take your work home with you, so you can enjoy it by changing the color according to the season and decorating the minifigure. There is also a shop near the exit, and the author, who was completely excited, bought various things.
Lego knew only about making buildings and animals, but it was a new discovery that it could be used for practical interiors. The theme and level of the adult Lego classroom will change depending on the time, but it seems that you can make a pocket tissue case for a while. The "LEGO" logo engraved on the potch, the feeling of a snapping fingertip ... If you want to experience nostalgia and excitement, please join us!
