Clever lego advertisement showing the imagination of a childHere are some clever LEGO ads by FCB Johannesburg showing that kids might not necessarily need elaborate kits, and what a simple LEGO brick design might look like through the eyes of a child. Very cool.

Lego my iPod

Lego shaped iPod dock with speakersYou want strange, we’ve got strange. Check this iPod dock out that is being offered by a Korean company called 10×10. For a low price (how does about $16 sound to you?) you can import a docking station for your iPod player that looks like a Lego brick.

Whether 10×10 got the license to manufacture an Apple accessory that uses another company’s trademark is up for grabs but if you still have fond recollections of your childhood toys and need a more colorful dock for your ‘pod, now you can stop your search. Measuring 6 cm x 1.5 cm x 2.5 cm, the dock comes in red, yellow and blue and features two speakers built right in. Just don’t get it lost amongst your real Lego bricks.

Lego USB Flash Drive

Lego USB Flash Drive from ZipZipUSB flash drives come in all shapes and sized these days, and not even a lego brick can escape it.

A Australian company called Zip Zip has created a 1GB USB flash memory thumb drive out of small Lego bricks just to add a little fun to you data storage needs.

This design makes me wonder if you could stack these bricks together, and something that would be really cool is if by stacking them you could expand the memory. But for now I think they are just regular Lego bricks with a flash drive built in.

The Lego USB flash drive comes in six colors of yellow, blue, red, white, black and green and retails for just under $49 ($59 AUD).
