Everybody Loves Raymond is a sitcom which is based on
true life events with plenty of humour and iconic characters. The screenplay of
the sitcom is very original and the audience can feel and relate to a lot of
the plot lines in the TV series. Likewise most sitcoms, Everybody Loves Raymond
has its emotional impact on its viewers and I feel very sentimental and
nostalgic about the 25th anniversary of the series. The year 2021 is highly
anticipated and very special for the die-hard fans including myself. A year
promising to be full of positive feelings and warm memories of those good old
days when life was more entertaining with this unique and enjoyable sitcom.

watched Everybody Loves Raymond numerous times with great pleasure, I’ve made
the decision to submit my LEGO IDEAS project dedicated to the classic sitcom.
and detailedness have been my main motivation. Every single brick has been put into
a specific position in order to represent the house and the characters’ unique
personalities with utmost accuracy.
I have been
inspired for my project by Central Perk from F.R.I.E.N.D.S
set (2019), designed by Milan Madge and Crystal Fontan.
I got the set for Christmas and I
was extremely happy because my country Bulgaria is not familiar with neither
LEGO IDEAS, nor LEGO shops. As soon as F.R.I.E.N.D.S LEGO set was released in
Bulgaria, at only one single place, I was lucky enough to get one of the few
available sets! Having said that, I would be glad to popularise LEGO IDEAS in
my own country.
I hope that the
Everybody Loves Raymond set would touch a wider range of audience – not only
the fans of the series itself, but also any sort of people as well, including
children who could be attracted by the fact that the figurines represent a
whole family and every character has its own personality.
As a LEGO
collector I am willing to be part of the LEGO community even as a fan designer.
LEGO is my hobby and I find that it can appeal to many collectors, because
there are products from DUPLO (for the youngest) to 18+ (for grown-ups).
Everybody Loves Raymond offers something to everyone.
