May 4th has become almost as exciting a day around here as Christmas morning- thanks to those marketing geniuses over at Lego and the people who take time to make Lego Star Wars stop motion videos (and for those of you who are not Star Wars fans just stop reading this here the rest of this post will sound like gibberish to you.)
Ben and Dave pretty much live and breathe Star Wars/ Clone Wars Legos/ Books/ Shows-Movies-Games. They know to the day when something new related to Star Wars is being released. They save their money to pool together for big ticket items. They pour over the newest catalogue. And best of all, when Lego doesn't create a set for a particular Star Wars scene the two of them make their own from parts. I love that their love of Star Wars gives them a common bond, something that they can have endless conversations about and that they have spent hours of time together, working and playing together.
And for a real treat on this May the 4th I recommend watching this video: http://youbentmywookie.com/entertainment/lego-celebrates-may-the-4th-with-the-fastest-and-funniest-lego-star-wars-story-ever-toldthe-prequel-12368
