      You have the age range wrong. My kids started going to the playa at ages 7 and 4.

      I'm cracking up :) I still believe Burning Man is in every one of us, every day. Oh, the places I'll go if I don't go this year, but I still believe somehow the Universe will put me back into the playa :D

      Clarisa. The age range is for the Theme Camp "Spacecats", which accepts campers over 18 only. This is mostly due to our nervousness about the wellbeing of children in our annual "Adventures of Dutchie on the Sea of Rebar" art installation. Day visits are encouraged but we find that, after dark, the potential for serious injury is just too much to bear. Thanks for your patience while we work this out...

      We're working on an upgrade that will allow actual fire. For now you'll all have to be content with those little plastic Lego flames.

      They're wearing far too much clothing.

      How can there be that many characters in that Lego set, there aren't enough tickets!

      Hey, put this up as a project on lego.cuusoo.com If you garner 10,000 supporters it could be an official LEGO set!

      Thanks Avit. Glad you like it. Normally I would say it's a great idea, but not for this particular set. Burning Man is a logo-free zone (except for the burning man logo), so I can wrap my head around a Lego "spoof" related to Burning Man, but not an actual Lego product. That changes this thing from being for fun and love to being about money, and in this particular case, we don't want it to be about money.

      Some people have been commenting that this is already a sell-out (whatever that means). We don't believe it's a sell-out because nothing is being sold: it's just a bit of free fun and levity in your day, which we felt the community needs right now. We may end up creating just one physical set at home ourselves and putting into some sort of charity auction, but I can't imagine doing much more than that.

      Funny, but where's The Man!?
      I love the smell of burning plastic in the morning.

      You should submit this to LEGO Cuusoo, I'm sure the burning man community could get it 10,000 votes
