April Fool’s! I hope you weren’t taking yesterday’s news post about LEGO requiring ID to purchase 18+ sets seriously!
It’s been a long running tradition on this blog to drop an April Fool’s gag each year (with the exception of 2020 because of the pandemic when I thought it wasn’t appropriate) so I’m pleased to have been able to write joke post once again.
LEGO, blogs and communities also typically get in on the festivities, and here are some of my favourites from around the AFOL community:
- New Botanical Collection Leeks by Bricksfanz

- Removal of minifigures from Rebrickable database – by Rebrickable

Some really fantastic gags here, and I always look forward to April Fool’s from the LEGO Community as it’s a fun time to let the sillies out, and come up with all sorts of creative LEGO gags and headlines.
To revisit some previous Jay’s Brick Blog April Fool’s gags from previous years, check them out below!
- Review: MEGA BLOKS Warcraft Colton & RAGEROCK (2014)

We’re also celebrating a big milestone – this is the 5th year of being a LEGO Ambassador which I also announced on April Fool’s 2016 disguised as a joke post. I can’t believe half a decade has gone by!
