Hello,

I am married to a Lego enthusiast - so I have very easy access to a LOT of Lego bricks.

Does anyone have any creative ideas how I could use them?

Thanks Smile

I'm thinking of some kind of prediction effect - rather than vanishes, but open to any suggestions. Smile

Hmmmmmm..... maybe some type of prediction effect with the reveal being one of those Lego Architecture replicas of a famous site? Like Big Ben, the Lourve or the Eiffel Tower? The completed building could be under a black box or under a drape.

Since you "build" things with legos, I like the idea of TRANSFORMING individual legos into a constructed object. Something where you or the spectator dump a bunch of legos into a box and they become "formed" into an object. Could be a predicted object.

Some effect ideas that popped into my head after reading your post:

A spectator stacks different Legos together in a stack and it matches the order of a set you did previously as a prediction.

A spectator stacks 5 or 6 different color bricks in a stack and a written prediction or a picture of a stack match the spectators stack.

You stack 6 red bricks together and cover the stack. Vanish a yellow brick and it travels to the center of the red stack.

A small “wall” of red Legos contains one yellow brick, which shifts positions in the spectators hands.

You complain that because of your husband's hobby, you are constantly stepping on Legos (an issue any parent can relate too). As an example, you take off your shoe and pour out a chunk of Legos that barely fits in your shoe (using Louie Simenoff’s “Earth Shoe” procedure).

Color sensitivity: you can reach into a bag full of mixed Lego bricks and pull out a specific color at will. Or have 20 or 30 red Legos in the bag. You then drop in a yellow brick. Have a spectator shake it and reach in to retrieve just the yellow one (Danny Archer has a method that would work for this from a trick where he finds a marked dime in a bag of dimes).

A vanished item appears inside a sealed Lego structure.

Lose bricks are put on a bag, shaken and magically assemble into a house.

I'm VERY late in posting to this thread, but is it still relevant? I've worked on a few Lego magic prototypes and might have a few ideas.

Maybe Lego cups and balls , with a big lego block as the final load.
Cant wait to see what you end up coming up with.
