Happy Holidays from the CFO family!
And check out the custom cards you can make when you "Minifig" your family:
LEGO has a fun new interactive activity called “Minifigure Family”, which enables you to create your own custom LEGO Minifigure Family holiday card. As you can see above, I prefer the traditional Minifigure look, but there are actually a lot of custom options, including skin tone, facial expressions, outfits and more. You can even set your own scene, and while the default snow scene is cute, our favorite vacation site is Hawaii, so I went for the beach scene (even though I chose the pink parka outfit for my own Minifigure, LOL).
The cards are really easy to make – so easy, that if you are in a rush, you could do it in just a few minutes. I took a little more time, since I was trying to find outfits for us that kind of reflect our personalities – that was the hardest part, since I didn't want all of my men (big and little) in baseball uniforms. I also had a bit of difficulty telling what some of the outfits were supposed to be, and it would have been nice if there had been more sports outfits to choose from. For families with kids who play the same sport, it can be tough to choose outfits and not have everyone look the same. But speaking of kids, I love that you can put up to 13 family members on one card!
I have some friends whose kids are over-the-moon crazy about LEGO, and I can only imagine what a hit these custom Minifigure Family cards will be. The cards are very easy to share, via Facebook, Twitter, email and other social channels. So have fun "Minifig-ing" your family!
