You can build virtually anything with LEGO! This holiday season you can even build your own family with LEGO. They have created an amazing online application called LEGO Minifigure Family, where you can create a customized holiday postcard that includes all of your family members, even your dog and cat. It allows you to add all your adult and child family members and their names, plus you can customize their skin color, facial expressions, hair styles and hair color, and even hats. Then you get to choose their clothes too. You can dress your family members in holiday themed clothing like a Santa suit or even as the abominable snowman. It's so easy to customize and you can do it again and again. Kids will love playing with it too!
I created my family with Johnny dressed as Santa (I'm sure he'll love that) and I'm wearing a merry holiday sweater. I had the most fun creating my kids, Heather, Ryan, and Johnathan, and I tried to match their facial expressions with their personalities. Johnathan ALWAYS makes a face when we do family portraits and I usually have to take a picture four or fives times to catch him with a regular expression. I even added a dog Minifigure for my pooch Buddy.
Minifigure Family also lets you choose a background for the postcard and since we live in Texas we rarely get any kind of winter precipitation, so I was tempted to choose a warm-weather background, but opted for the snowy winter setting instead, just to make it more holiday-like. Then, with just a click of my mouse and I downloaded the postcard to my computer! Minifigure Family has share buttons right on their site too, so I shared it to my Facebook wall, my Twitter feed, and my Pinterest boards.
Now it's YOUR turn to create your LEGO Minifigure Family! When you're done, share it to your Facebook wall and tag me with it so I can see your holiday postcard! Happy Holidays from me and from LEGO too!
