If I could chose only one toy for my kids, LEGO® bricks would be the one. Seriously, we could part with just about everything else and thrive with just our bins of LEGO® bricks. This toy increases intelligence and encourages creativity in ways that few other toys do. Constructing a spaceship develops design skills, but it also encourages math skills. I need a brick that is 8 studs long, but I don’t have one. Which bricks can I substitute to fill that space? What pieces can I choose to make my space ship the same on both sides (symmetrical)? How can I change the opening of this car so that my guy can fit in without the roof getting stuck on his head?
We have FOUR LEGO® books available that will inspire hours of creative building. Spark your child’s imagination with new ideas for that bucket of bricks and taken-apart sets. There is no need to keep buying endless new sets! Make good use of what you have!
