Watching MacGyver as I was growing up was an impactful activity. The creativity of the main character was really inspirational. I always thought: "This is how I want to be when I grow up".
During my school years this attitude definitely helped, and I can say it formed the man I am today.
Of course it also inspired me as a kid and my Lego builds back then. (No pictures unfortunately from that age of mine).
The other day I had to fix something in our garden pretty quickly, so had no time for real planning or go to a shop to buy material or tools. I had to use what I had on hand, and be creative. I did it. When it was done, I was thinking, this is how MacGyver would have done it as well.
This obviously brought back memories and inspired the tool kit to be made out of Lego.
This box could teach children that everyday objects from our home can be a lot more than they originally are. With creativity and outside of the box thinking, we can turn them into real tools of creation. I believe Lego already challenges this mentality, but putting together small objects from our surroundings and use them as MacGyver did would even further help to be creative in our everyday life.
The MacGyver Tool Kit contains:
- 1 $ stamp
- Bubble gum
- Bobby pin
- Rubber band
Included only one minifig, MacGyver himself. The look of the minifig is base don the original series with Richard Dean Anderson.
I built the model using Studio, but made sure the structure is strong, it's possible to build in real life and all parts actually an existing one (except the decals of course).
The size of the box (without the minifig):
20 x 14 x 6 studs
The model was built with 402 bricks (including the minifig).
If you like the idea, don't hesitate to support and share with your friends and family.
