LEGO + Stationery= Boredom Buster

Summer break means road trips, long days outdoors, swimming, family vacation, running through the sprinkler, grilling, flip flops, Slip N Slide, popsicles, sidewalk chalk, chasing fireflies, s’mores, etc. And let’s be honest, it wouldn’t be summer break without the occasional vocal complaint, “I’m bored”. So I am on the hunt for fun toys, trinkets, educational items, etc. to help them combat their boredom (more info coming soon…two words, Busy Bags!) and I came across LEGO Stationary!


Santoki, LLC introduced LEGO Stationery! #LEGOStationery

This one-of-a-kind product consists of an assortment of buildable school supplies that use LEGO elements and all work together as a system.


The collection includes a colorful assortment of pencils, erasers, pens, markers, journals, organizers and buildable rulers. What’s so cool about the product is that kiddos can build on the products and create something while learning!


These look so cool, I can’t reisist, and I think my kiddos will totally have their boredom busted by this! I will keep y’all posted and share my thoughts once it arrives.


FYI- If anyone happens to be attending LEGO KidsFest in Louisville, you’ll also be able to try them out at the show: Santoki has an activity area devoted to playing and coloring with the product line.

LEGO Stationery is available at Barnes & Noble, LEGOLAND California Resort, Legoland Florida Resort, all LEGO Discovery Centers, Amazon, and Boxed Lunch!

You can rent LEGOS!? (Includes FREE month subscription!)

My relationship with Legos is a rocky one; I am not going to lie. Don’t get me wrong, I simply adore the fact that my children can spend hours creating cities, castles, cars, putting together kits, etc. with Legos. I appreciate the cognitive benefits that Legos provide the children. I admire watching those wheels turn in their little brains and the joy come over their little faces when they connect and build from their imagination and instruction. What I don’t appreciate is the fact that they seem to multiply overnight!

I mean seriously, when did Legos start reproducing? And don’t even get me started on Lego pain…not to be confused with labor pain…though they are both up there in terms of intensity.


At first I had them under control. They were limited to one bin. Then we expanded our collection with each child, so we upsized to the large tub with wheels. Then the children grew but the Legos got smaller and multiplied much faster.  Now we have Mega, Duplo, Ninjago, etc. strategically planted throughout the house, where ever I could find storage. At this rate, eventually our home will become taken over by Legos! Help!

Help has arrived…..
