Today Eva had a field trip to The Little Red Schoolhouse. This has been a trip that kids at her school have been doing for years. I went there when I was a kid, too. All the kids dress up from colonial times and they bring their lunches in baskets and things like that. She even had us make bone in chicken breasts the night before so her lunch could be more authentic. She’s definitely our kid.

Today I attempted a DIY project but it got stopped because I destroyed a portion that was needed. So, I had to put it on hold to go and get a special part. I’ll continue the project tomorrow. It is for a blog post coming next month.

I got a couple more Marvel LEGO sets recently to continue my collection of Marvel sets. I’ve got all the Guardians and am having a good time making these sets. We were going to build one of the sets during Built from Bricks but instead we worked on a fun stop motion, they take a long time to do.

Speaking of time. I did not have time today to make another stop motion or build of a set and instead today’s post is about a new organizational system that Eva is using for her LEGO pieces. Check it out below.

The Blind Bag Trap

I have a love/hate relationship with blind bags. They are exciting to open to see if you have found a chase character or a duplicate. The more blind bags you have the more chances you have of getting all the figures that you want, but there is also a higher chance of getting duplicates. I picked up a bunch of Funko Mystery Minis (Blind Bags) of Captain America Civil war characters on clearance at a couple of GameStop stores. Last night I found the rest of them at the last of the GameStops that are near me. I have all the figures except for three of them. I figured that I’d find at least one of them with this latest batch, but no. Not one new one and I even found two of the same ones. Ant-Man. I love the character but not 4 of them. So, that is the trap of Blind Bags. It is like toy gambling. It can be exciting but also disappointing.

So, now I have to figure out how to find those last three figures without taking more chances on blind bags.
