Muji to Go

How to Muji-Lego

Here’s something I found among the many wonders of the JetBlue terminal at JFK. The design store Muji hasĀ a crafts set combining Legos and paper cutouts which you and your child can color in and assemble into a mini circus, undersea world, or what have you…

The kits are cute and durable enough that you can keep them long after your plane trip is over. When you get home, set them up as dioramas in your child’s room and start a collection. There’s something very Japanese about this, both in its relationship to origami and the product’s innate respect for the intelligence of a child, but then you have a Scandinavian vibe from the Lego as well.

My attempts when I was little to make myself a Calder circus from scratch ended with middling results. But if Muji had been around, I think the flights would have seemed much shorter. Don’t forget to buy the hole puncher!

    How adorable! Your experience with the Calder mobile made me remember the time I first saw the giant Calder mobile hanging in the museum in NY. Gasped at it’s magnificance, because I, like you, had tried unsuccesfully, alas, to make one like I saw in the pictures.

  2. Hi! I am glad your posting here! Excited to see your posts!
    Love MUJI! Cannot wait to see what you do next! Glad to see you at Mclaren!:)
