Let me tell you the tale of how Netflix and LEGO Bionicle saved Spring Break. You see, March is a bit of a crazy month for us this year. It’s the last year our boys are in two different schools for a while and as a working mom, I couldn’t be happier to get them back on the same schedule in the fall.
Oscar just finished a week and a half of Spring break and tomorrow Calvin’s week and a half off starts. Yes, it’s true that I am going to have 3 weeks in March with a child at home. If I had planned better, I would have also taken time off. But since we took a Disney cruise in February, another trip or even extended time off now just wasn’t going to happen. So here we are.
LEGO Bionicle on Netflix
We are huge fans of all things LEGO, so when I received a box containing not one, but two LEGO sets to put together the day before Oscar’s break started, I whispered a hearty thank-you toward the sky!
We’ve never had a Bionicle set before so after Calvin left for school, I set Oscar loose with the set (Gali – Uniter of Water) and he had a great time building it. He played with that and the other set (an awesome LEGO Friends Birthday Party) for hours, which meant I could get some work done. Win Win!
I let the fun of the toy stick with Oscar before telling him that Netflix just released a new original series called LEGO Bionicle: The Journey to One. There are currently 3 episodes in the first season and he has been checking almost daily for a new one.
The story is an epic tale of good vs. evil with each Bionicle harnessing the power of nature’s elements. We’re very excited for the next episodes to roll out so we can be sure the bad guys are defeated!
LEGO Bionicle beyond Netflix
Age 7 is a really great age for imagination and discovery. Especially during a very long and at times boring Spring Break at home. Oscar loved watching the shows and playing with his sets, but after a visit with his older cousins, he was even more hooked!
My nephew was a fan of the first generation of Bionicle and Hero Factory and let Oscar go through his own personal stash to create a completely unique figure! He’s fierce and Oscar will be sure to let you know all about how awesome he is.
But wait! There’s more! Oscar spent hours creating a page for each Bionicle from the show including their element, their creature, and their names. And now that he is back in school, he has checked out a couple of the LEGO Bionicle chapter books from the older series. I think it’s safe to say we have quite the fan on our hands!
So if the Grinch can steal Christmas, then LEGO Bionicles and Netflix can certainly save Spring Break! If you haven’t seen the show yet, check it out along with lots of other great LEGO shows on Netflix and see where your imaginations take you. I loved watching Oscar explore play, art and reading just from the inspiration of a toy and a couple shows.
Spring Break round one was a success. Wish me luck with round two!
