Thursdays with Built From Bricks

Photo-A-Day #4363

Every Thursday I head over to my friend Brian’s house. For a while we were filming a show called SteamDads. It was a science based show that we enjoyed at first but really ran out of steam once we stopped coming up with experiments and ideas. It was fun to shoot but took a long time and didn’t really find much of an audience.

Brian asked me if I wanted to help him out and film an episode of his show, Built from Bricks. I agreed and it has been fun ever since. We’ve done all sorts of shows. The most popular show has been the City Updates. Brian has such a cool LEGO City being built in his garage. Each week he has something new happening and it is awesome. Tonight we shot a whole behind the scenes video that included a studio tour. The photo from today was what I shot for our Thumbnail for the episode. You can watch it below. If you haven’t already, please subscribe. We are closing in on 100 subscribers and when that happens we are going to do a big giveaway.

Brian even agreed to help me out with an episode of Big Damn Kid. I’m looking forward to going to Philly Brickfest Live with him in April. I think people are going to love the MOCS he made for his LEGO City.

It is National Puppy Day! Need An Alternative to a Real Puppy, Try Peppy Pets

Peppy Pup Scruffy

We received a Peppy Pups from TPF Toys for free to try out and review a while back. Opinions of the toy are 100% our own.

This is an adorable little toy dog. It has spring legs and hard paws with special paw pads that let the dog bounce, waddle and prance along like a hyper happy little puppy would. The rest of the puppy is soft and cuddly. I got one of these for my son Andrew, he loves animals, especially dogs. He is so kind with them. Listening to him play with his new pet, Scruffy, was very special. He took Scruffy to a Dog Park upstairs. I could hear him talking with his friend and his friend’s dogs, too. Andrew loved talking Scruffy for “walks”, too. But as you can see in the video, his favorite thing was to share snacks.

Why are we talking about Peppy Pups from TPF Toys again? Well, today is National Puppy Day and I wanted to let parents know that there is an alternative out there that will delight their kids. More info below.
