Legos and Alpacas

Well actually, Nano Blocks and Alpacas; but to me, Legos are like Band-Aids and Kleenex... way more than a brand. 

As a kid I loved legos.  As an adult, I still love putting things together and of course, I love alpacas.  So this is two loves coming together, from a country that I also love.

A friend from work took a trip to Japan recently and brought home an Alpaca Nano Block kit.

Aside from the name, everything is in Japanese, which I am unable to read.

Fortunately, the instructions also came with pictures.

Yes, I'm a recovering engineer.  All of my pieces must be sorted before I can start.

My prized lego alpaca on the shelf of honor.

This is so kick-A$$! My son loves lives for Legos. Where can I get him a set?

LOVE this! And great job putting it together. BTW.

Cute lego design! I bet my llama/alpacal-owning LYS-owner would like that, too!

Make that llama/alpaca, instead.

Thanks! I haven't seen NanoBlocks before. My friend found it in Tokyo.

I did look at the legos when we were shopping this evening, but alas.... no alpacas.

Ok, I finally found it... on Japanese Amazon. Boo.
