Build on Brick Bookends by ThinkGeek

To take a little diversion from the regular news, ThinkGeek has just launched a new product that you might be interested in. If you have lots of books on your shelf, then these new Build on Brick Bookends may just be the thing you need. The set of two bookends have an exterior building surface that are compatible with many construction bricks including LEGO. They also have metal slides for under the books for more stability.

I’ve reviewed ThinkGeek products before including their Build on Brick Mug and the LEGO bricks seems to stay on pretty well. I assume the plates on the bookends will work just as good. You can now order them on their website and the set of two will go for $19.99.


LEGO Lunch Boxes on ThinkGeek

Lunch is about it get a little bit more fun at school or workplace with these LEGO Lunch Boxes from ThinkGeek. These lunch boxes come in either red or blue that is randomly chosen and are shaped as your traditional 8-stud 2×4 LEGO brick. They area small enough that you can carry it around in an insulated tote to keep your food warm or cold. Unfortunately, there are no holes on the bottom so you can’t stack them up like regular LEGO bricks and they aren’t microwaveable.

If you don’t want to use it to store food, you can use it as a travel pack for your LEGO bricks. Thwe dimensions of the brick are 3.9″ x 7.8″ x 3″ deep (exterior), 2 1/4″ deep (interior).


ThinkGeek Build-On Brick Shot Glasses Now Available

Last year, we did a review of the ThinkGeek Build-On Brick Mug which turned out to be a pretty decent mug. Continuing with the theme of brick beverage holders, ThinkGeek has released a new item to the list, the Build-On Brick Shot Glass. This novelty item goes for $19.99 and consists of a set of four 1 1/2oz. shot glasses that come in blue, yellow, white, and red. Similar to the mug, the exterior has studs that you can build on using LEGO bricks or any other brands of construction bricks. Why not have some fun at your next LEGO get-together and have some shots while building.


ThinkGeek Build-On Brick Mug Review

Today, I have something a little different for my next review, the ThinkGeek Building Brick Mug. It is not an official LEGO product but can work with the bricks. I got it a few months ago when it was on sale on ThinkGeek’s website. The retail price is $19.99 for the 12 oz mug.

The ThinkGeek Build-On Brick Mug is dark grey can made from hard ABS plastic and is BPA-free. There are many holes and sockets for various building blocks including LEGO, Mega Bloks, KRE-O, K’NEX, and PixelBlocks. From my tests, LEGO bricks fit on all four sides of the mug although some bricks are a little loose especially if you put 2×2 bricks or larger on the single row studs in front of the mug. The front is even strong enough to hold a whole building. As far as actually drinking out of it, after all it is a mug, any liquid will work. If you drink something like coffee, be sure to wash it right after or else it will stain the mug. It is also recommended that you do not microwave the mug or else you will have a gooey mess. Overall, the ThinkGeek Build-On Brick Mug is a pretty nice accessory to add for your home or office.
