Ok. So first, be warned that the information I’m about to share is dangerous. If you’re anywhere near the geek that I am or were raised anywhere near the 80s, this could end any semblance of time management. Know it. Embrace it. Love it.
Now that we’re through that, check out this site: http://ldd.lego.com. Welcome to the LEGO Digital Designer. I was innocently checking out printer reviews today on the CNET website and right there on the splash page was a link. First of all, it’s free!

When you download and install this nougat of goodness, you get to build stuff out of Legos! As an added bonus (and know that this is a stern alert) you can click a little button that will let you know how much your creation and the pieces used in its construction will cost. As an extra-spunky-added-bonus, you can even create step-by-step instructions on how to build your new magical creation once you’ve purchased the appropriate Legos!
Whoever put this togetgher for Lego should get a raise. It’s marketing genius, and it’s great fun too! Enjoy, and don’t waste too much time…
