If I am a 'Man' - let alone a HuffPost Man - why do I spend my time playing with toys for a living? Why are two of the three tabs on my browser open to Lego.com? Why do I so enjoy watching cartoons featuring comical dogs and signing up for pointless feats of strength? And why am I holding, as I write this blog, a lime-green NERF SlingFire Anti-Zombie shotgun - in the office?
By placing its logo in thousands of playrooms around the world, Shell tried to insulate itself against anyone who claims that oil companies have no long term place in our society... Not only do our kids influence the way we think and act, they are the opinion formers of tomorrow. And Shell has been trying to buy them off.
The front runner, for the London based brand, is their LEGO bricks printed full body on polyester mini dresses and t-shirts. The bold primary colours of the Lego bricks will remind most adults of their childhood (or children's bedroom floor!) and adds a colourful look for the summer wardrobe.

Whether you are celebrating Valentine's Day or not this year, it's certainly difficult to ignore.

Already out in the US, Here are 5 reasons UK grown-ups, along with their inner child, should go to see The LEGO Movie this weekend...
The day-to-day support that children need during the grieving process is extensive and is required at a time when the other parent (in this instance, me) is at their lowest ebb. One thing that I have learnt in the last six months is that the grieving process is a very individual thing.
Torsten Hvidt and four friends began a journey along a road that was uphill, full of obstacles and quite narrow. At least that's what it may have looked like from the outside...
In my mind it's simple; cosmetic surgery isn't to be taken lightly, and giving it away as a prize or reward is frankly just irresponsible. I can't even begin to express my horror after reading about an American ophthalmologist who was in the news this week for offering cosmetic procedures to anyone who can set him up with his 'dream woman'.
To coin a phrase from a former Princess, there are three people in my marriage. Me, my lovely wife, and a fictional schoolboy wizard with a lightning bolt scar on his head. A Mr Harry James Potter. I even know his middle name. He is a constant presence in my home, a menacing bespectacled spectre in my day to day life.
When I was growing up, Lego bricks came in primary colours and no one told me I couldn't build a garage, a rocket, a pirate ship or whatever took my fancy.

Now it seems to be the norm to split the building sets Lego market into those deemed appropriate for boys and those for girls.
I really liked what I saw of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and I can't wait to see more and actually get some hands on with it. From what I did see its a lot of fun, and with around 100 playable characters to choose from everyone should be happy.
With the London 2012 Olympics round the last bend, the penultimate sporting event of the summer is definitely upon us! Myself and the good folk at lyrics4lyrics clothing have released a range of Olympic themed snapback caps that will keep you a 'head' of the competiton!
