Product Idea

LEGO Typewriter

Congratulations on 10,000 supporters, Steve Guinness!

Dear Steve Guinness, 

If only we'd had a LEGO Typewriter, we'd for sure have typed up this congratulatory comment on it! For now we'll settle for the digital way of doing it! Congrats on hitting the 10K mark with your replica typewriter that showcases that anything can be built out of LEGO bricks!

We now officially advance this project to the Review phase.

What happens now?

This project moves from the Idea stage to the Review stage. A "LEGO Review Board" composed of designers, product managers, and other key team members will examine the idea. We'll build concept models and determine if the concept meets our high standards for what it takes to be a LEGO product. This includes factors such as playability, safety, and fit with the LEGO brand. Every potential LEGO product goes through a process like this and must meet the same standards.

The LEGO Review Begins in January 2020

This project qualifies for the Third 2019 Review, which includes projects that reach 10,000 supporters between early September 2019 and early January 2020. For more information about the LEGO review process, please see the Project Guidelines and House Rules.

The review is a thorough process and from its start it can take several months. When finished, we make a "go/no go" decision to develop and sell a product based on the LEGO Typewriter.

When the review is complete, we will inform you of our decision. If green-lit, this project goes into the longest phase of the project; the Development phase. During this time, LEGO model designers refine the product and develop it for release, we create the product materials (box, instructions, marketing), and get everything ready for a production run. This also takes several months.

We will post follow-up information and our decision here.


Congratulations on 5,000 supporters! You've earned an extra 182 days.

Wow! By passing 5,000 supporters, you've made it into the upper ranks on LEGO Ideas. Since you've passed the halfway point, here's another 6 months (182 days) to reach the final milestone of 10,000 supporters. Best of luck as you aim to finish your journey strong.


Congrats! Your LEGO® Ideas Project Has Been Selected as a Staff Pick!

Hi Steve Guinness, 

The LEGO Ideas Team would like to send you virtual high fives and a big congratulations, as your LEGO Ideas project LEGO Typewriter has been selected as today's Staff Pick! 

Staff Picks are one of the ways for us to celebrate fantastic projects that show off something out of the ordinary - as your project has done! It's not 100% about the model itself, but we also reward great pictures and presentation. It doesn't matter if your project has 100 supporters or 5000 supporters, they've all got a chance as long as they can WOW us! 

Receiving a Staff Pick today doesn't mean you can't earn another in the future. Time will tell if your other projects could wow us just as much as well. 

Please do remember that being chosen as a Staff Pick is an editorial decision, so it has no impact on the LEGO Review if the project reaches 10,000 supporters.

Keep up the good work!
