We found another purple lego brick! In 2009, I blogged about how rare purple Lego bricks seem to be, so my boys were stoked when they found the single round piece above. We have always wondered why purple Lego bricks were so rare, considering they were one of the “main” colors.
When I did my original research on purple Lego bricks, I found many references to the Knight Bus from Harry Potter. I had always presumed my purple piece came from that set via a hand-me-down box we received from a friend. I recently saw the Knight Bus in a store (pic to the right), so purple bricks should be in circulation again soon.
Why am I blogging about this? I would like to see purple bricks included in basic Lego sets and elsewhere! I feel it’s grossly underrepresented in the Lego world. If you feel the same way, let Lego know!
