Your LEGO idea could be available to purchase off the shelf! Via LEGO
Create an awesome model, take great photos, and write a convincing project description, and people won’t be able to help but support you. Not so fast, though! Before you put two bricks together, check out the Project Guidelines and House Rules to see the types of ideas we allow.
A project includes photos or 3D renderings of your own original LEGO brick model along with a written description that becomes your proposal for a potential LEGO product. Projects must feature an assembled model, we do not accept submissions with only loose LEGO pieces, such as parts or accessory packs.
Please keep your projects to a maximum of 3,000 pieces. Big models are awesome, but we have to set limits to the size of LEGO Ideas submissions. While we can’t count the pieces in your photos, if your model looks too big we’ll send it back and ask you to make it smaller at our own discretion.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
