When it comes to building toys, LEGO is king. You can build just about anything with them, whether it’s a house, castle or a set based off a popular movie. The possibilities are endless. And now, you can create your family with their own Minifigure Family app on their website. With it, you can add up to 13 members of your family to create a holiday card to send to all of your friends.
I had a blast trying out. There are a ton of hair, hat, & clothing options that you can choose from, plus you can also match skin tones as well. You can also add in pets too. I gave my husband spikey hair and dressed him as a ninja. I’m wearing jeans with a studded belt, which looks a lot like the one I normally wear, and a blue jacket. My daughter is wearing a white and purple hoodie. In fact, I noticed one shirt that looked suspiciously like Matt Smith’s suspenders & bowtie from Doctor Who. They were missing the fez but had a cowboy hat, so I couldn’t resist adding him in.
Once you create your figures, there are twelve background scenes you can pick, ranging from the beach to several various Christmas themed rooms. I picked out one with a Christmas tree, presents & a fire place. I also adjusted where my figures were so that you could see the background. There is also the option of changing the message, but I left it at the default “Happy Holidays”. It’s a lot of fun to, and eveyone is sure to enjoy it.
You can make your own figures too. Just visit the LEGO Minifigure Family page and get started.
