20 Wacky Yet Practical Items Made of Legos!

In our home we have oodles and oodles of Legos from our epic Vampyre Castle construction to a couple of Lego Friends vignettes.

We have Legos in the bedroom, Legos on our kitchen table, and even Legos in the bathroom. With being confronted with so much Lego-ness, it’s natrual to ponder upon their usefulness beyond just being a building toy.

And apparently I am not alone with questioning life beyond simple Lego construction. Our own Rachel Faucett recently gave 8 New Uses for Christmas Legos, such as cufflinks and key holders. But how about if you want to do something bigger, bolder and/or crazier yet something totally practical and useful?

Here are 20 Lego creations that go beyond just blocks from chairs, to vases to Birkin bags!

  • The Lego Birkin Bag 12 of 19
    The Lego Birkin Bag
    A cleaver and talented Etsy crafter that goes by the name "agabag" made this "Tribute to Hermés - Birkin 25cm bag made with LEGO bricks." And the purse is actually usable. They wrote, "the bag is fully functional - it is designed for everyday use. It's reinforced to carry some weight, the flap closing is working," and has, "two big pockets inside." The purse is made to order and can be made in "white, yellow, red, blue, light or dark grey," but they add that, "lime, orange and multicolor versions are also possible at a slightly higher price." If you, like me, want to order one right this second, you are out of luck. The bag is currently "sold out." And like the real thing, there is a long wait list with the earliest ship date being in February. The price tag is $400 (which is far less expensive than a real Birkin). You can email the maker for more details here.
