If you’re looking for an inexpensive hobby that will put -enormous- smilles on a child’s face… you’ve found it! Modding Legos can be great fun – let’s get started! There are soooooo many options: glowing eyes, repulsors, an arc reactor, laser guns, light sabers, fairy wands, etc. Your Lego minifigs will be so awesomtastic you’ll have to hide them from your kids! I typically start by going to a local super-center and picking up a couple ‘mystery’ minifig packets in the toy section. They are only a few dollars and are great starters for developing your skills.
