A Record Store Made Out Of LEGOs Is One Of The Internet’s New Favorite Things

There’s no argument that LEGOs are nostalgic and iconic.

How many of us created scenes from the colorful plastic blocks as a kid?

For that matter, how many of us have stepped on a brick in the middle of the night causing a new level of pain to shoot through our bare feet as parents?

One parent is gaining some internet notoriety after creating a record store scene out of his son’s LEGOs.

“I’ve been doing these little buildings that Lego sells as sets,” Chris Cooper told THUMP. “I wanted to try to build a custom one, and a record store was my first choice, since that’s where I spend a lot of my time.”

Aptly named Brick City Records, Cooper’s creation sits on a street scene in his office, next to Al’s Barber Shop and a pool hall.

With LEGO in full resurgence thanks to blockbuster movies at the box office and high video game sales, it might be a good idea to return to the days of plastic nostalgia and issue Cooper’s record store as an actual building set.
