We are a big Lego family, we love building together, and once we build sets my girls play pretend for hours! Lego’s are so fun but also educational we’ve used them to work on math and reading as well as following directions. Over at Brick Dave blog they’ve listed some more fun ways Lego’s are educational! We just started working on sorting our big tubs of all the loose bricks we’ve collected the last few years as well. Look out for another post on how we’ve organized it all!
One of my favorite toys for Christmas and birthdays is LEGO! I love their options on sets and bulk brick boxes. When I’m shopping for the kids, I’m also on the look out for toys that keep my kids creative and off screens. Lego can be very expensive for the big sets but what I appreciate is the variety in sets so you can pick up some fun sets that are within any budget. I’ve picked my favorite Lego with prices ranging as low as $5 up to $60.
Lego 3 in 1 sets
I love these Lego 3 in 1 sets. They give the kids fun options to create and transform. We have a 3 seasons cottage and some vehicles, this year I think we will be picking up the stores and animals too.
Lego Disney Princess
We are of course BIG Disney/Lego fans so we of course will be picking up some of the new Disney Princess sets. My girls love Cinderella and Rapunzel so I think those will be on their lists to santa this year.
Lego Star Wars
This year Star Wars has been big in our house! For halloween my kids are all going as Star Wars characters too! The Lego Star Wars sets are so fun, we love collecting all the character minifigs so we can recreate the scenes from the movies.
Lego Stocking stuffers
I love filling our stockings with little presents that reflect my kids strong interests, Lego Minifigure blind bags will be on my list, we love making guesses as to which characters we will get and hoping for our favorites.
