Prince of Persia LEGO Set

I LOVE LEGO! I’ve put together several sets on my live stream before, and am looking forward to doing so again. Someone at LEGO reached out to ask if I would be interested in putting together a new set that isn’t even available in stores yet – the Prince of Persia: Sands of Time (the Ostrich Race) LEGO set. My answer was but one simple word…

DUH!

The coolest part of this particular set is not just that I get ostriches in it. This is the first time I’ve ever touched an ostrich. This set actually has a torso minifig. There’s no shirt on this LEGO guy. He has pecs and muslces. I don’t know if that’s supposed to be Jake Gyllenhaal character from the movie, but I would assume so.

Some of the features of this particular LEGO kit include:

  • Includes 3 minifigures: Dastan, Ostrich Jockey and Sheik Amar
  • Also includes a desert creature and 2 of the first-ever LEGO ostriches
  • Features movable gates and traps
  • Beware of the desert creature!
  • Turn Dastan’s head to change his expression!

When I was a kid, you had to pretend a lot when you built with LEGO bricks. I love that they are now co-branding with things such as Prince of Persia, Star Wars and even Toy Story. It’s seriously cool to see the way that kids can stretch their imaginations further.

LEGO is something I will never grow too old for. What about you? Are you a LEGO addict? What kits are you looking forward to building?

Have You Ever Had Ostrich?

Have You Ever Had Ostrich?

Imei cooked an Easter meal with ostrich on the plate. Of course, there’s broccoli, rice, and mustard as well – but that’s just standard fare.

The toughest part was catching the bird! It kept running and running and running. Darn near lost a finger trying to wrangle that sucker. Ostriches are mean! Of course, you could say we were equally as mean to eat it for dinner.

Just kidding (about the catching part, not the eating part – that really is ostrich on our plate). It tasted a bit gamey, but that’s par for the course with ostrich meat. Can’t say it’s my favorite food in the world. Probably ranks somewhere after spaghetti but definitely before Brussels sprouts.
