Over 300 pages long, thissubstantial hardcover book would look as fine on your coffee table as it would on your kid's
My 11-year-old Lego lover was the first one to start paging through the book after I removed it from the packaging.It was written with AFOLs, Adult Fans Of Lego, in mind, but as my son proved, there is enough fodder in it for eager fans of all ages.
I learned about AFOLs a few years back at a social media conference. There was an interesting presentation that included details on how long it took the LEGO brand to recognize--and capitalize--on this market of (mostly) adult men. It was a surprisingly slow development given that an adult fan typically has much more money to spend on Lego products than the average 10-year-old boy.
The serious reader can read the book cover-to-cover leaning about topics from minifigures to Lego art to LUGs (Lego User Groups) and fan resources. The casual reader, like me, can pick up the book and page through it, admiring the creations and picking up Lego factoids. Did you know that the ratio of male to female minifigs is 18:1?
If you're looking for a unique gift for the Lego lover in your family, one that won't clutter the floor or cause puncture wounds if you accidentally step on it, this book is a great find!
It retails for $39.95.
