LEGO wrote the book on building blocks and now building blocks are making the LEGO book. Things have come full circle. I mean brick. Check out these official product shots of the $70 ‘Once Upon A Brick’ pop-up LEGO storybook that will be released on November 1st.
The set started out life as a design seeking support on the LEGO Ideas website, and after jumping over all of the requisite hurdles, it can finally be a real life set. The production version is an 859-piece kit with enough bricks to build a storybook that contains either a Little Red Riding Hood or Jack and the Beanstalk themed pop-up scene inside. You can swap between the two. Pretty cool.
You can even build a scene of your own when you get tired of the two that are provided for you in the box. This LEGO set also includes a booklet with a short history of pop-up books, a condensed history of each fairy tale in the set, and information about its fan designers and LEGO designers.
It arrives just in time for Christmas so this one should be under many trees this year, or if you’re a LEGO collector yourself, you should definitely book your LEGO literature today.
