Forbidden Lego: Build the Models Your Parents Warned You Against!

3.0 9
by Ulrik Pilegaard, Mike Dooley
 

It just may be impossible to exhaust the creative potential of LEGO bricks. With an active imagination as your guide, there are endless possibilities-provided you follow the LEGO Company's official (and sensible) rules. This means no cutting or tampering with bricks, creating models that shoot unapproved projectiles, or using non-standard parts with any LEGO

What an absolutely fun book to read. The authors, Pilegaard and Dooley, both worked at LEGO. Apparently, as a LEGO engineer, there are many rules that need to be followed when creating a new toy. Most of these rules appear to be in place to protect children from getting hurt. The purpose of this book is to allow two amazing LEGO designers to create models that break one or more of the LEGO rules. The results are some really interesting models that are a lot of fun to build¿just don¿t let your 5 year old play with them! I¿ve read some previous LEGO books where the construction information was printed in black and white, making it difficult to follow. This book has all model instructions printed in full-color, making this book as easy to read as any LEGO-printed construction manual. It also helps that the models are a lot of fun to build. You¿ll see instructions for a paper plane launcher, a candy catapult, a ping-pong cannon, an all-terrain vehicle, and ¿high velocity automatic plate dispenser¿. Each model starts out with the builder¿s inspiration for the model, as well as why it is forbidden by LEGO. While some reasons include safety concerns for young builders (any catapulted item must be below a certain velocity for it to be deemed ¿safe¿), others include models that use non-LEGO parts. All in all, this is a very fun book to read and build along with. If you¿ve got a Technik set and want to try something new¿something forbidden¿then this is a great book to pick up. Not only are the models easy to follow (thanks in part to the color instructions), but they¿re fun to build.

I purchased this book as a gift for my Lego loving college-aged son. He is going to have to wait till Christmas for it though. I am really sure he is going to be tickled to have it
