Our household is in FULL LEGO NINJAGO mode. Don’t believe me?
Actual photo of my dresser this morning. This isn’t even all of them! Garmadon is around here somewhere…
Oh. Found him.
Chillin on the piano where my son stashed him before he left for the bus stop this morning.
The point is that The LEGO NINJAGO movie left a BIG impression on my kiddos. They’ve already decided that the next dog we adopt will be named Lloyd. Pronounced “LA-LOYD.” And I’m good with that.
Because I’m probably the biggest LEGO NINJAGO movie fan in this house right now.
My love of LEGO runs deep. My kids play with my old school sets that have been lovingly sequestered at my parent’s house. And any film that entices two very active kiddos to plop down and play at the Lego table for hours on end is a big win in my book. But that’s not where the magic of The LEGO NINJAGO movie ends…

You see the messages in this movie are particularly important for kids and families.
Early on in the film, a discouraged young boy is encouraged to “Change your point of view” by the wise Ninja Master.
Some of the themes from the movie read straight from the life lessons wish list of every parent everywhere for their kids:
- Solve a problem by using a different perspective.
- Observe, empathize, and become a better leader.
- Practice, practice, PRACTICE.
I think I may have just talked myself into seeing this movie AGAIN…

I mean, Jackie Chan actually choreographed the fight scenes. YES. Real people modeled the fights for Lego animators. So that’s pretty dang cool.
