Stocking Stuffers

By Ted Bishop

If you've got the big stuff out of the way, don't forget about the stockings. Lego Minifigures are hard to top. If youre not familiar with the concept, for around $4 you get a bag with one "mystery" Lego figure in it. They are on Series 11 now, but the old series are fairly easy to find on Ebay and Amazon with not much of a premium paid. Each set has 16 or so possible figures. From experience, Ive learned to get two or three, as my boys get a little bummed when they get the princess figures.

McFarlane has come up with a similar concept for the NFL with their smALL PROs Series, which includes the chance for your child to get some limited-edition variant figures. Included in the current set are Russell Wilson, Cam Newton, Colin Kaepernick, Drew Brees and more.
