LEGO® is the largest manufacturer of building block toy sets in the world producing more than 500 million blocks each year and have been the favorite construction set for generations. There are several general "Basic" sets listed in this category: Education Series and Bricks and More Sets.
LEGO® wants to provide the ultimate experience to the user. To accomplish this goal, their sets are divided not only according to age but the level of difficulty as well. They start with the basic sets (here) and then expand into various themed sets to offer the maximum creatvity and imagination for your child's pleasure.
In all the category sections we include a video review at the bottom of the page for one of the sets in each category. We try to get videos by kids for kids but if we cannot we do monitor the videos to make sure they are presentable.
Lastly we are only showing you the sets that have at least a 4 approval rating out of 5 however from our Mega store you can find a huge selection of all the sets including mini-figures and specific acessories for Lego®.
CAUTION: Please match the age of the user to the age that is recommended by manufacturer.
Hint: ages are also shown on the front of each box.
Building block are the original educational toy. They help teach hand to eye coordination, shape recognition, color use, and problem solving, and many others. In Parent & Child Magazine in the Article " All About Blocks" , the author states " ... they are the perfect tool for hands-on learning about basic math concepts: shape, size, area, geometry, measurement, and equivalencies. While playing with blocks, your child may naturally begin to sort them by a particular attribute, such as shape or size. He may notice that long rectangle blocks make much better bases than the triangular ones, ... '
While building blocks, in general, are "the perfect tool ... for learning" I believe that LEGO® Building Sets provide a more sophisticated platform for learning and enjoyment. The seemingly endless variety and selection provide the user with a nearly infinite opportunity for exercising their creativity and imagination. There are also artists who work exclusively in LEGO® as a medium. There are nearly 50,000 adults who regularly build projects with LEGO®. This number is growing as more and more adults see the challenges and benefits of spending time with these "toys". Spending time in this way promotes the relief of stress and delivers a much needed quiet time to all who engage in the experience.
As promised, this review is for the Lego® Fun With Bricks (4628) from Jaystepher. You will see him on other catagory pages and does a great job of reviewing and showing you what to expect with each set. I hope you enjoy the review video:
until next time! Barb & Walt
