Mimikyu

I got this adorable Mimikyu stuffed animal on Aliexpress for $6! It turned out to be decent quality and looks just exactly like a Mimikyu.

Mini Block Pikachu

I finally found a Mini Block Pikachu at Mr Pen.

They tend to have random characters available, so I had to pick up Pikachu! This wasn’t an official Nanoblock, but close enough.

dscf4525

There were tons of extra pieces and straightforward instructions. It was much easier than some of the others I had built.

Sailor Moon Funko

I finally found a Sailor Moon & Luna Funko Pop in Mississauga. I’ve seen the rest of the Sailor Scouts in stores across Toronto but I didn’t want to start a collection without Sailor Moon.

Look how cute she is next to some of my nano block sets!

Mini Block Bulbasaur

I found this adorable tiny block Bulbasaur at Mr. Pen in Toronto.

DSCF2800

I found this one easier to build than the other tiny block sets I’ve purchased. There were even pieces to build a Pokeball included.

DSCF2801

Look at that tiny Bulbasaur.

And Pokeball.

This was one of my favourite yet. I hope to find a Pikachu set some day!

Who Needs These?

img_3200

I was at Toys R Us not too long ago. I like to go there to relax (yes, I’m weird). Anyways, I walked past this aisle full of dinosaur heads. Someone tell me why are these a thing? Are they so popular that you need an aisle full? I guess this 28 year old will never know.

Nanoblock Eevee

DSCF8441

I needed to calm some anxieties down this weekend and I found that building things with instructions and a final product help a lot. This is why colouring doesn’t. It doesn’t really have instructions so I end up thinking too much about it. Anyways, I found this adorable Nanoblock Eevee online!

DSCF7882

There were over 130 super tiny pieces.

DSCF8439

The instructions had very little words and were a bit hard to follow at first. I found the best way to follow where to put what was to start from the easiest place and match the patterns (sometimes it’s unclear what is pointing to where). Plus I don’t know how anyone with hands bigger than mine would do this as the pieces are so delicately small!

DSCF8445

Tada! Here is my hand for size comparison. The good thing is if you lost a piece it includes extras of everything.

Lego Simpsons Kwik-E-Mart

DSCF3728Recently, I finished building the Lego Simpsons Kwik-E-Mart.
DSCF5877

This set was more detailed and fun to build than the Lego Simpsons House. There were so many tiny parts and fun features including a frozen Jasper in the fridge. Here are some photos as I was building it:

Pokemon at McDonalds!

DSCF6639
I remember when I was a kid, I would go to Burger King or McDonalds, which ever one would have Pokemon toys and try to collect them all. I can’t believe they are back again. I can’t believe such a franchise has been popular across different generation of kids.

The toys are much cooler now! I even received a holographic Pokemon card with it. Kids nowadays get it so much cooler.

IONIX Ash

DSCF6108

I finally opened the Ionix Ash I received via Bunz Trading Zone.

It opens up to 9 pieces sort of like Lego Mini figs, only more like a mini robot.

Behold Ash bot!

Lego Simpsons House

DSCF3730

My first lego set ever was this limited editionĀ Lego Simpsons House. Prior to this I’ve never owned or built any set from start to finish. I’m a huge fan of The Simpsons so when I found out they were releasing the house I was super excited.

DSCF2354

I ordered it from Amazon and the box was huge!
DSCF2355
Here’s the back.

DSCF2364 DSCF2365

There were 7 parts to the house and 3 booklets worth of instructions. It took me around 3 weeks to build, mostly because I don’t have a lot of time to do it consecutively. It was a super relaxing process though, and took my mind offline.

DSCF3735

It’s so super detailed and looks exactly like the house on the show!

Here are some photos of the inside details in order of how they were built:
