No doubt we have all had our share of Lego’s growing up.  They were so fun to build things with, but not so fun to step on.  As a child, in my imagination, I thought I was the main architect of Legoland! Never though did I ever build anything this fun! Behold the Custom Lego Dolly:

This Lego Dolly can be found on Etsy at Harribricks’s shop! It is handmade and available to ship worldwide from the United Kingdom. What a perfect gift Dolly would make for a fan as a keepsake or possibly decoration on their desk!

Halloween With Disney…

Visiting Walt Disney World at any time of the year is a magical experience. Visiting at Halloween takes things to another level. During this time the Magic Kingdom hosts Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  This year the event takes place on select nights from September 2-October 31 and does require an event ticket that is separate from the normal theme park entry.

Let’s take a journey into Mickey’s world:

You need not dress up, but it really makes the experience even more fun!
