    Nathan Sawaya has created “Hugman” in LEGO form and is currently on LEGO Ideas gathering supporters. In addition, there are also a variety of books for kids aged 2-5. You can see below for more details:

    “After years of creating awe-inspiring artwork out of LEGO bricks, Nathan is launching a new series of imagination-inspiring children’s books and we’d like to see if you’d be interested in reviewing the first four books in the series.

    THE ADVENTURES OF HUGMAN books are timeless stories for kids ages 2 to 5 that follow a little brick buddy named Hugman as he and his friends think outside of the box to tackle problem solving, highlight the benefits of collaboration and teach important lessons of friendship, self-confidence and respect – all while exploring the endless possibilities and creativity with LEGO.

    Inspired by Nathan’s street art sculptures and illustrated by Maarten Lenoir, each hardcover book in the series is 32 pages of engaging artwork and is great for both read alouds and readers alike.” More details available on their website and LEGO Ideas.

    BURBANK, Calif. – May 30, 2018 – Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, The LEGO Group and DC Entertainment today announced LEGO® DC Super-Villains, the first LEGO game to put players at the center of a villain-centric adventure packed with favorite locations and characters from across the DC universe.  For the first time, a LEGO game is giving players the ability to create and play as their own DC Super-Villain throughout the game. Their character becomes the center of the story, while teaming up with an iconic variety of villains to adventure through the hilarious and original story written in collaboration with DC. LEGO® DC Super-Villains will be available October 16, 2018 for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One X®, Nintendo Switch™, and PC.

    “LEGO DC Super-Villains provides players a fun and humorous way to cause mischief by unleashing their DC Super-Villain’s sinister powers and amusing abilities,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. “With an unprecedented amount of customization options to choose from, players can create and customize their character at the start of the story, unlocking new powers and abilities as they progress through the funniest LEGO game to date.”

    “The original story in LEGO DC Super-Villains flips the DC universe upside down as players embark on an unforgettable adventure starring memorable villains set across notable DC locations,” said Ames Kirshen, Vice President, Interactive & Animation, DC Entertainment. “DC’s roster of iconic Super-Villains is unmatched and fans will love teaming up with The Joker, Harley Quinn, Lex Luthor and a host of others to save Earth from a greater evil.”

    In LEGO DC Super-Villains, the Justice League has disappeared, leaving Earth’s protection to a newcomer group of heroes from a parallel universe, proclaiming themselves as the ‘Justice Syndicate’. Renowned DC Super-Villains from the ‘Legion Of Doom’ discover Earth’s newest heroes may not be the heroes they claim to be. With each player’s completely customizable Super-Villain character in command, this team of misfit lawbreakers must join forces to discover and foil the evil plans the incognito strangers have in store.

    At the beginning of the campaign, players can create their own unique villain and main character throughout, while also teaming up with a variety of DC Super-Villains throughout the story mode.
