We covered Andy Grobengieser’s lovely Minimoog LEGO kit proposal. But perhaps the iconic synth keyboard just isn’t open-ended enough in terms of sound design. You want kids to play with the wide sonic palette of the legendary Moog Model 55.

Now, they can.

I expect nothing less from children than a fully-formed playtime adventure featuring this beauty. I can see it now: a woman on a jetski arrives, narrowly escaping a police boat patrol. She’s headed for her electro-acoustic sound studio, but – what’s that? Dinosaurs?! Fortunately, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and some elves are there to prevent our sound artists from becoming dinner. And that means there’s still time to head into the sound studio and make a basic sequenced multi-oscillator patch, to compose a melody to communicate with the alien UFO that’s coming in for a landing. That’s the power of synthesizers, kids.

    i’d like to see a one-box set of these similar to the Lego Birds set that came out this past year. Nano Block had a great set of musical instruments, including a synth and I’ve always wanted lego to do one.
    Also waiting for that joyless troll to pop up here saying “legos are toys and I want to read about serious music-making things”
