Over the last couple weeks, I’m discovering that most guests don’t give a flip about favors that aren’t edible, though I have seen some make exceptions with things that are really unique.
My Fiance and I are LEGO nuts and we were really excited to create our own mini-kit as favors. Is it worth continuing to try this, or should I just give up and get cookies or something? :p
Since images aren’t working, here’s a link to something we’re considering – a LEGO cab: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/5257

Is it cute? totally!
Would I do more than say, “How cute!” and then give it to my nephew? no.

It’s certainly different!
Would you include a little photo with each kit so that people know what it is?

Just a thought- how long is it going to take you to gather enough parts for all the favors?

Personally, I think it’s a cute idea, but I would say no. I don’t think many people would get it, and it wouldn’t be worth the effort.

Those are super cute, however, I think unless it really speaks to a majority of your guests, I think most of them would get left behind. They would be cute as details on the tables, I can imagine all sorts of places to put those around the room as a really personal touch. Then the kids (if any) can take them home at the end of the night.

I love it!!! I would have a great time putting this together-it would definitely make it to my desk at work! 🙂

I think the pendulum is swinging a little too far in the direction of cuteness for favors.
Yes they are cute, BUT for most adults they are also a complete waste of money.
If you are really into Lego why not make a donation to your local Childrens’ Hospital or unit?
Those kids will really appreciate the Lego.

Cute: yes. IMO worth the time or money: no. Would I throw this in the trash – yes 🙁

Many of our friends are fellow geeks. Our families might not get it so much though. 🙂
@PinkPinstripes LEGO has a design software that lets you assemble your design digitally, then place an order for the parts. 🙂 We’d design our own little manual.
@julies1949 We are considering donations too.
I suppose maybe we could place them in a basket and let them opt to take one if they choose to? Rather than leave them on the tables and risk having them tossed out…

I wouldn’t know what to do with this favor.

Hehe..that’s what I’m thinking too, and I have to remember not everyone’s odd like me. At my old company, I was the tchotchke queen and decorated my cube with LEGO figurines and potato heads. It would be more of an inside joke between us as well as my Fiance. I’ll be rethinking this…

I would love it! But, I am a nerd. 🙂

I love the idea of using them as table decorations or some such thing. They’re super cute and they’re very YOU. But i probably wouldn’t take it home.
