The Lego Toy Workshop – 40106
A limited edition set from the Lego Store
For a limited time, you can get Lego Set 40106, the 2014 Limited Edition Toy Workshop as a free gift when you spend a certain amount at the official Lego Store. This is a favorite of mine – what is better than Lego minifigures making toys? Nothing!
I had one purpose yesterday, I wanted to get the Star Wars Advent Calendar because I heard through Twitter that it was available at my local Lego store at the mall. So I loaded up the little one, and headed down the freeway to the mall. I’m a 43 year old guy. Going to the mall isn’t something fun that I get to do. In fact I’d rather spend 5 hours in a locked room with my mother-in-law than try to wrangle a 2 year through an over-crowded parking lot full of texting SUV driving distracted drivers. Then once into the great air conditioned building that always smells of Bath & Food court, with maximum advertising overload in every direction.
But alas, it was a Thursday, and I only had to battle pregnant ladies heading for the latest specials at the Pea and the Poo Store.
Plus the Lego store was empty this particular morning. Two employees, me, and my kid. And hundreds of sets to look at. It was heaven. If you ever have the ability to go to the Lego store on a weekday during school hours, cut, play hookie, and go. It’ is so worth it, I might even do it again.
Of course, I was too late for the Star Wars Advent set that I so desperately wanted so I grabbed another two sets (reviews coming shortly), and was told that since I spent over $100 I would be getting Set 40106, the Limited Edition Toy Workshop for free – SCORE!

What was your favorite component or part to build in 40106 – Lego Creator Toy Workshop?
I had fun building a few different parts of this set. Inside the workshop there is a little wall of tools that use red clips to hold up the tools. That was fun to make. I also think the little grey woodworking vice is pretty neat. It doesn’t actually work, but is the right size and scale for the minifigs and the building. Also, the Toy train and bulldozer were fun Lego micro builds
