LEGO has announced their pick for the next Cuusoo kit. All the kits are great but Yes for the winner.
We’re excited to share the results of the Fall LEGO® Review. In September, three LEGO CUUSOO projects entered the second quarterly review period for projects that successfully reach 10,000 supporters.
