In the land of the Lego

This weekend, my living room has been over taken by Legos! Yes, Legos! See the trunk in the back left corner of the picture? It's an old army trunk that my son got from his Grandfather. It's great to hold our Legos! Haha, yeah, I said 'ours'.........1/3 of those Legos were mine when I was younger. Did I ever tell you I was a pack rat?? LOL.....I had a castle and everything!!
But these guys were, and still are, my favorites! They were some of my first Legos......I got them from Hamley's Toy Store in London when I was little. I'd give anything to take my kids......of course that's after I win the lottery....LOL.....7 floors of toys, isn't that crazy!!

So I've just done a little research and these critters came form the Fabuland Lego set, first introduced in 1979. I wish Lego would come back with some sets like these......they were so much fun to have!.............and my next project. Again, these were mine when I had my first doll house. As you can see they have seen a lot of love over the years! Well, I have decided to recover them.....or should I say, I'm going to try and make slip-covers for them. We shall see what comes of it, but for now, I will continue to sit and stare at it..................I guess the rest of the afternoon will be spent trying to find some 'How to make a slip cover' articles.
..well, that's no good.........a missing foot? Whatever will I do about that???

I agree with Ana... you'll have to make a new leg from clay!
