It’s that time already? Get creatively festive with Lego’s Creator Expert Gingerbread House

Looks like shopping season has been extended by a month, folks. Which means we don't have to feel bad about adding the #10267 Lego Creator Expert Gingerbread House to that shopping cart, we guess? 

We’d drive through the wilderness to get to this Lego Technic Land Rover Defender

There was the monster Porsche build, the iconic Ford Mustang (you may wanna pick up the October issue of Stuff in a couple weeks), and that life-sized Bugatti Chiron. Now there's something new due in three weeks or so -- a new Lego Technic Land Driver Defender build, set to drop from 1 October.  

Lego’s going augmented reality with the launch of several ghostly Hidden Side sets

So that's why Lego came out with that Stranger Things-themed set that kept the Stuff team busy for two full days. There's a new range coming from the Danish makers of addictive bricks, called Hidden Side, which has an emphasis on ghosts. And other things that aren't actually there, commonly known at Stuff Towers as augmented reality (AR).

Building Lego Stranger Things, ‘The Upside Down’ – Eggos, Demogorgons and all

Lego is a go in Tshwane with the opening of the Menlyn Park Lego Certified Store

We want to flip things Upside Down with this Stranger Things Lego set (and it’s heading to SA)

It's no secret that the Stuff team are massive fans of Stranger Things, Netflix's nostalgia-fuelled horror series. It might be the late 1980s aesthetic, the often low-key horror elements (which come off like well-executed Stephen King), and the fact that the storylines are just so good. Which makes us perfect targets for this Stranger Things-themed Lego set, simply called The Upside Down. 

Lego goes coding with the introduction of its programmable Spike Prime kit

Educational toys have come a long way from the 90s, where anything that might teach kids something was routinely considered boring as hell. There may have been spreadsheets involved.

Lego’s Ford Mustang GT is here and it’s irresistibly cool

Want a Ford Mustang but your budget won't stretch to the repayments for a current one, let alone the 1967 GT Fastback you've always dreamed of? Have you considered Lego? Today the Danish toy maker's version of one of the most iconic muscle cars ever went on sale in South Africa. We were at the unveiling, where we got to peer under the bonnet and, um, flick the tyres.

Some of Lego’s hardest to find sets aren’t so elusive in South Africa any more

Every Star Wars fan we’ve come across would give anything to have a Lego Millennium Falcon centrepiece in their house, even if their significant others don’t think it goes with the decor. Or the bank account. Trouble is, in South Africa it’s traditionally been a struggle finding exclusive and hard-to-find Lego sets, so many couples have been spared the discussion… but not anymore.
