When I love a movie, I can watch it over and over and over again, and in the case of the Lord of the Rings…I can’t get enough of it. It had been a little while since I had watched the movies when The Hobbit was released. We saw it in the opening week, and I loved it. I’ve even been back to see it a second time, and to feed my obsession in the meantime I watched (again) all of The Lord of the Rings movies at home. They are really good, just in case you didn’t know. To add to it, we have a new Lego Lord of the Rings game for the XBox! It’s like Middle Earth around here!
As if all of that wasn’t enough, I discovered The Official LEGO® Channel on YouTube, and guess what they have? You got it…LEGO® The Lord of the Rings™ videos! And they have LEGO® The Hobbit™ videos too! Check it out…
I have to admit, I was pretty excited about the LEGO® Star Wars™ videos too. Yes, I’m a geek. I’m okay with that
I decided to share my new find with the kids, and they watched a lot of the videos too. There are mini movies, animated web comics, tv shows and product information to watch. I love the LEGO® Blocumentaries and the videos where they show how they came up with some of their creations. It is awesome!
I wanted to save some of the videos so that I could easily find them again, so I went into my YouTube account, went to my Video Manager and created a new playlist named LEGO®. Then I returned to The Official LEGO® Channel and when I found a video I wanted to save, I clicked “Video Options” in the lower right corner and clicked “Add to Playlist”. Then I just had to select my playlist and it was saved! Take a look at the playlist I created…
I’m teaching the kids how to add videos to the playlist too, so that they can keep coming back to watch the videos. I love that they are learning new ways to be creative with LEGO®, and they even learned that adults can build LEGO® as an actual profession. I would be one proud Mommy if one of my kids became a Professional LEGO® Builder! In the meantime, I thrilled that they are entertained while building their own creativity. It’s another reason to love LEGO®.
