Nice shout out in the Refuge Services of Texas newsletter today.  We are so thrilled to partner with them.  We also just recently received a request for Lego boxes from Peru!  Sadly we've run through our last batch, so if you know anyone looking to unload some please tell them about RePlay.

RePlay is a great new non-profit that re-purposes donated Legos to be gifted to other non-profits!  They give the gift of creativity to our clients, check them out!  http://www.replaybricks.org/

Owen and Dave recently made a trip to Seattle.  One of their favorite things to see on the trip was an exhibit at the Pacific Coast Science Center called The Art of the Brick.  Artist Nathan Sawaya has recreated famous art pieces using Lego bricks.  He also created many of his own unique pieces.  It is incredibly impressive and a great way to teach kids about art.   The biggest piece Owen and Dave viewed was a dinosaur skeleton made of 80,000 bricks. If you are ever near this exhibit be sure to check it out.  You can learn more at http://www.brickartist.com/.
