Check out my home LEGO office and hear more about the upcoming STEM Moon Shot event. As you can see from this video, I am passionate about building and creating with LEGO and getting kids excited about STEM! Thanks to Abigail Taylor of KBOI2 for the great live discussion.

What do 186,250 LEGO bricks look like? Well, funny you should ask… this is what 186,250 LEGO bricks look like, and they weight almost 1,000 pounds!
Today the brick arrived (on three half pallets) from the LEGO factory in Billund for the STEM Moon Shot event on Saturday, February 3, 2018 at Boise State University’s Engineering and Science Festival.
Thank you LEGO and the great people in the Community Engagement group for helping this event happen. This is going to be fun!
Now we come to Millie at Re-POP Gifts. What a wonderful woman and an incredible store. I am always a little overloaded when I visit because there is so much fun stuff; it is hard to take it all in. She is also selling my kits and we are discussing an exclusive to her store sometime next year, so stay tuned!
Also, I must thank Millie for igniting this whole series! When my wife first moved to Boise, she bought a wonderful magnet that was made from LEGO that is still on our fridge today… she still sells these and I highly recommend them.
That small build of Idaho really inspired my whole series. With over 300 of my Idaho kits in peoples hands in just 2017, I have to thank Millie for her wonderful work and I can only hope to repay this kindness someday.
Note: My kits are only available in the physical Re-POP Gifts store (3107 W. State St., Boise, ID) but there are a ton of fun LEGO accessories available on their online shop.
The next store to join my small but wonderful band of retail outlets was Mixed Greens. Rita has been great to work with and has made three orders too. This store likes a mix of all the different versions I have made. This is a wonderful store with a very fun selection of quality things. I am proud they include me in their inventory!
