Ah, Legos… is there anyone who doesn’t love them? When I was about thirteen, I used to spend all of the money I earned babysitting on Lego sets, and I daydreamed often of one day having a house of my own with a whole room dedicated to Legos. I’m having fun daydreaming about it right now, as a matter of fact.

The unusual item pictured here is a tiki mug, made entirely out of Legos. It’s hollow, and while it surely isn’t water-tight (or food-grade, for that matter), it is suitable for use as a pencil cup, and it comes with a lid so it can be used as a sort of box. It is 10″ tall, the eyes are made of translucent red Legos, and the body is made from a now-discontinued brown color. Two of them are for sale at an eBay Store, for $74.99. They were made by a former Legoland California Master Model Builder, who is now a “freelance Lego artist.” I bet he has a room just for Legos at his house. Found via Unlikely Moose.

    OMG!!!!
    Legos and Tikis?!?!?! Two great tastes that taste great together!!!
    My beloved and I have a passion for both and the Lego tiki mug is pure genius.

    Now I think I am going to try my hand at creating a Lite-Brite Tiki Bar sign.
    Thanks for the inspiration!
