I love that kids get to feel super human. That the world of kidnom allows them to escape into a world of super powers and bionicle strength.
Speaking of bionicle strength, did you know that LEGO BIONICLE is releasing a DVD for the first time?
|LEGO Bionicle: The Journey to One, Volume 1 - released 21 July 2016|
What is LEGO Bionicles you ask? Well if you've got a young boy in your house then you'll know it's a construction set by LEGO that allows kids to create their own bionic robot type creature, each of which has special powers in which to protect our world.
I guess it's been around for a while as Mr Twelve has a basket full of them in his cupboard from when he was around seven years old. They are targeted at the 6-11 year age bracket. My cousin's son LOVES them and it's an easy buy for him come birthday time.
There's a bunch of them (too many to count) but they all have really cool names like:
- Uxar Creature of Jungle
- Ketar Creature of Stone
- Pohatu Uniter of Stone
|Ketar, Creature of Stone|
I guess there must be a few kids in the world who love them because Universal Home Entertainment and LEGO have partnered to put out a LEGO Bionicles DVD series!
I can hear the gasps of wonder and squeals of delight from young boys the world over.
In fact, LEGO BIONICLE: The Journey to One, Volume 1 is available on DVD from today. TODAY! Well, isn't that a coincidence.
What's it about? Well on the mystical island of Okoto, evil is on the rise as the quest to uncover the mighty Masks of Creation causes a stir between good and evil. Uh oh. Who will prevail in this journey of danger, intrigue and excitement? The Toa team, equipped with the new Mask of Unity, endeavour to find Okoto's ancient elemental creatures. As it turns out, finding them may just be the easy part, training them however is another story.
