Five Favorite Etsy Stores- Recycled Lego Genius

by - Sunday, March 05, 2017

I want to keep highlighting amazing makers in the US, and I feel like my Etsy links can get caught in the more mainstream shuffle. So starting a series to focus on the greatest stuff we have found.

Legos have taken over everything, and when I was doing research about where to recycle them, I also came upon some awesome Etsy stuff. So I thought I should share the coolness!


DaRosa (Canada) makes drawer knobs out of recycled duplos. I love this. What a cool way to decorate a playroom or lego-lover's bedroom, and you are reusing plastic.


Remnants by RJ (Kansas) makes these spectacular toys (some known as "Toy Bots" out of recycled vintage toys and legos. These are so neat. What a strange and wonderful world. It might be cool to design a nursery around one of these.


Head Manufacturing sells one item on Etsy- these lego-posted bunk beds. So cool, and though I am not sure I would buy from a shop like this that is barely a shop, I couldn't let the chance to share it with you pass by.

moonlightbindery (Virginia) sells these awesome notebooks with upcycled covers that you can decorate yourself with legos! I think these could make a fun gift for a kid with an active imagination or an adult with a serious case of toy nostalgia. Either way, so fun.



BareSockcrafts (California) makes one of the weirdest things I have ever seen on Etsy- lego rosaries. You wouldn't think of such a sacred prayer tool being made of toys, but when you think of a first communion or getting a child started on a personal spiritual journey, I guess it could make sense? Start with something familiar and not so lofty it feels inaccessible. A unique idea, and the more I think about it, the more I like it. Plus, you just can't fight with recycled legos.
