Let's build a word, WORDWORLD!
About this creation
Where your intrepid hero realizes he spends WAY too much time watching public broadcasting with his daughter...

Let's take a look around shall we?


First, the house.





Then we have a shot of the flower bed and the grass. I know the W in flower is kinda hard to make out but I think it came out ok. The grass was redone from it's original version that was basically plates... glad I went with this idea.





Here's the front path and the step leading up to the house. I had to squeeze the letters in "step" together to make it fit better but it's still legible.





The sidewalk outside the front of the fence...






And speaking of the fence, how bout that working gate huh?





A shot of the side fences just so you guys can see I wasn't lazy and actually made them into words too.





The last thing I built for this post, the tree. The letters read vertically of course. I had gotten everything else done and said "it still needs... something." and this is what I came up with.





I swear it's there, you just have to look for it. Not easy making bushes out of Lego... unless you're Tom Simon of course. The man has a gift. Sorry, wrong bush. This one didn't come out as clearly as the others but again... it's legible. We're good.





And our closing shot. Thanks for visiting WordWorld!




Fourth Wall Commentary: For those without younger kids, WordWorld is a cartoon here on PBS that helps kids learn to spell. Basically, about 90% of everything in WordWorld is made out of... you guessed it, words, even the characters like Sheep, Dog, Duck and Ant are all put together with letters. I have to admit it's been great in helping my daughter learn to spell and get interested in words. I was watching it with her the other day and thought to myself "hey, that would look pretty cool in Lego..." When my daughter got home yesterday she saw it and clued in right away to what it was. "Daddy, you built WordWorld!" Heck, even my wife thought it was cute... and for those that don't know my wife, this was a MAJOR compliment... she's not exactly the world's biggest Lego fan.

Anyway, that's it for now. Hope you enjoyed your visit!
Till next time true believers!
~Chris.

Excellent work! It took me a second, but I can now see all of the words! I would recommend, however, to re-upload (if you can) a couple of the pictures; they are showing up as a question marks on my computer.

In my never-ending quest to catch up with everybodies posts I was thrilled to see this. We sometimes fill our creations with violence, near-the-knuckle commentary or posing and jokes that I couldn't tell my kids, but this is neat, well built and.... educational! Holy moly, a pod-person has replaced Chris! Bring back my buddy you alien fiend! Seriously, smart job and one I shall be pointing out to my (teacher) sister-in-law as a great example.

Quoting Twin Creators Okay, this is going to sound so weird. Are you ready? What do the bushes say?
There's a lot of ways I could answer that very loaded question but I'll just go with the straight answer. They say "BUSHES." Like I said in the description, it's a little hard to read, but it's there.

Chris, you know I'm all about education and helping young people; the work you're doing with Lily now will benefit her every single day for the rest of her life. Spelling is a lost art, especially for you foolish people who think intentionally misspelling words is somehow hip or cool. It's idiotic because it takes just as much time to spell correctly as it does to spell incorrectly. Also, when I'm reading something I have no desire to take even more time to try and figure out what your meaningless drivel is trying to say. Reading is a crucial skill as well, since you can only learn so much from television. The ability to comprehend written language is, along with opposable thumbs and indoor plumbing, what separates us from the beasts in the field. There's a joke here involving a crowbar and people we know, but we'll save it for another time. I love this build!

My nephew loves that programme! I also kinda like it, think its quite clever... this is great moc... even though you didn't spell out roof. The fence is my favourite part. You should have a go at more of these, I'd love to see you tackle the animals. And would be good to see you make them out of Lego too.

Now wait a minute here. Gio teaches kids biology, Hans herbalism, and me.....drinkologyism. *Hic* Great build here man. I love how you combined it into something your daughter can associate with while learning. You have to beat my step-son within an inch of his life before he can figure out how spell "CAT". Oh wait a minute.....do you think that slows down the learning process? :P
  March 11, 2011
I remember watching this show with my grandnephew. I love the MOC, Chris. It's the first time that I've ever seen someone actually do something like this on MOC Pages or any LEGO fansite for that matter. Anyway, nice job there. Now LEGO employees might be seeing this MOC and decide to go all out with a LEGO WordWorld Duplo theme.

As a retired ESL teacher and someone who is linguistically oriented I am absolutely agog over this. And it's the 1st time I heard of the cartoon! I have to check it out! This is yet another reason why if used correctly LEGO can be more then a toy! It can be a learning device! I applaud this work! Take a bow! I hear the audience clappinf 4 u!!!!
