Reminder: Check Amazon During Sales

Amazon Australia Thumb

Here is just a friendly reminder with all the sales kicking off this week – Amazon will usually lower their prices to match other sales.

If there is something that you are after it is usually worth checking Amazon. If you have Amazon Prime you should also get quick delivery direct to your door. With the advice to stay at home as much as possible I suggest using online ordering as much as possible.

This link should give you all the Amazon Australia listings. [affiliate link]

Build Yourself Happy Might Help With All That Coronavirus Anxiety

Let me begin by saying I am not a mental health practitioner. Everything that I am going to say is a suggestion only and just my personal opinion. Anxiety and depression are serious medical issues. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

Things are a bit shit at the moment, to put it bluntly. Everything that is going on has led to a huge amount of anxiety for a lot of people. I think we all need something to take our minds off things.

I know we’ve all got our LEGO sets to build but sometimes you need something else, and Build Yourself Happy by Abbie Headon is a great option. It’s a book that looks at simple ways you can use LEGO to improve your mental state.

If you are looking for something to help you justify spending $250 on a modular to your less than supportive partner then this book isn’t for you.

This book is about Mindfulness.

LEGO Announces 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay

The latest LEGO Ideas set to be officially released as a product is here – and it’s bringing with it a boatload of nostalgia.

Introducing 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay

21322_front_01_01

The LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay project passed review on the back of being an awesome concept. Well LEGO have taken that concept and lathered it with classic pirate goodness to create an homage to the iconic Black Seas Barracuda set.

This set allows you to create the shipwrecked Barracuda on Barracuda Bay, or optionally combine the sections of the ship to build a replica of the Black Seas Barracuda.

You also get a full line-up of classic pirate characters; Captain Redbeard, Lady Anchor, Robin Loot and twins Port and Starboard. You also get a shark, pig, 2 parrots, 3 crabs, 2 frogs and 2 skeleton figures.

This model is a bit different to the original submission and that is going to perhaps be polarising, but I personally love the direction they have taken.

You really need to check out all the pictures below. You’ll also find the official product description below too.

The set will be available April 1st for $299.99 here in Australia.

On Sale: Buy One, Get One Half Price At Myer

Myer Super Weekend March 2015

Myer is having another Super Weekend. While heading in-store might not be the best option it’s certainly worth having a look online for some new sets to build while you are “working from home”.

On offer is 50% off your second item when you buy two or more. The way it actually works is you get 25% off each item as long as you have more than two eligible items in your cart. So you can grab a Technic Bugatti Chiron and a DOTS band and get 25% off both.

The sale is live now and ends on Sunday. As always Creator Expert, Ideas, and 71043 Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle are excluded.

You can find the Myer range here. [affiliate link]

On Sale: 20% Off At eBay
