Stuff: Top Ten Blog Posts 2015

As with my other blogs I am looking at the ten most read postings over 2015.

The tenth most read post on this blog was posted in the last two weeks of 2015, and was about WHSmith. At WHSmith you can afford to give them anything but the ordinary this Christmas contained an old advert from the high street store.

I visited Legoland in 2013 and felt that it was A bit tired and this was the ninth post in this top ten. Certainly when we went this year in 2015 there were some new models in Mainland.


You have entered the Quiet Zone! was eighth most read post and I asked what’s the point of the Quiet Zone Carriage?

Back to Legoland for number seven, Legoland Miniland.

The sixth most read post was on Ten Incredible Sand Sculptures that have been on the beach at Weston-super-Mare over the last ten years.

The post at number 5 was from the Cinematic Advent Calendar which I posted back before Christmas in 2012. The post in question was #24 – Back to the Future and as 2015 was the year in which Marty McFly went to in the film series, it’s quite apt that it in this year’s top ten.

More Lego at number 4 with The Bat Cave in Lego.

The third most popular post was “the cafe on tv at weston super mare is it real” and the answer is, it isn’t!

Over 2015 there were seventy Shaun the Sheep sculptures places all across Bristol and the top two posts on the blog were about these Sheep. At number two was Ten out of Seventy and the most read post was about all seventy sheep, Shaun in the City.

Happy New Year for 2016.

The Bat Cave in Lego

My children love playing with Lego and last weekend we spent a day at STEAM looking at Lego models. I will upload photographs from that day out later, but in the meantime I discovered through @IaninSheffield this incredible Lego model of the Bat Cave.

Some one had a lot of time (and a lot of Lego). While we’re at it, why do Americans (particularly, but not exclusively) call many pieces of Lego, Legos? The plural of Lego is Lego. You wouldn’t say Legos brick would you in a similar vein to Courts Martial? Also many sheep are called sheep and not sheeps. Getting off my trivial soapbox now…
