For the love of Legos

Meghan (Donnellan) Nelson, BSci‘05, and her husband, Ryan, love Legos. The couple’s company, MR Brick Designer, has sold hundreds of Lego clocks, business card holders, lamps and commissioned pieces from their website MRBrickDesigner.com.

Last summer, they waived the rights to reproduce images of one of their clocks to Warner Bros. for use in The LEGO Movie. They haven’t noticed their clock in the film, but they are hoping it may appear in the upcoming sequel.
