My boys love Legos. They are 8 and 9 years old and all they want for presents is Legos, Legos, and more Legos. They tend to want the Lego sets, the ones that have a character theme. The problem is they build the set several times and then get bored with the set. Of course, they are then asking for another Lego set. I tell them they have way too many Legos, a big storage container full. I needed to find a way to keep my boys interested in their current Legos. I want my boys to keep playing with Legos as they stimulate their creativity and help them learn things like math and even science. My boys just needed ideas on what to build beyond houses and cars. They wanted to build cool things like rockets and planes.
My boys were so excited when they received a Tiny Lego Wonders book. This informative big, 208-page book had lots of great ideas on building compact yet realistic mini-models. This book was filled pictures of how to make 40 cool mini Lego vehicles like planes, rockets, trains, boats, and more. There were so many great ideas, many that my boys had never thought to build with their Legos. My boys read and studied the book for a long time to try and decide what they wanted to build. They read the book from cover to cover. They were fascinated by the pictures. I love that the pictures were detailed and had step by step instructions on how to build the micro sets. The pages even explained which Legos were needed to build the micro vehicle. Some of the mini models used only nine Lego pieces while some used over 100 pieces like the Freighter and Bulk Carrier.My boys were disappointed that they did not have the correct color Legos, but they realized it was OK to substitute different colors and different pieces. The book tells the reader to think beyond the pictures and to use your creativity if you don’t have the required pieces. The pictures were the starting point to spark my boy's imagination for new Lego adventures. That was a good thing as I was not going to buy them any more Legos. I told my boys to save their money to buy the Legos that they desired. I also love that this book was keeping them busy for so long that they did not even ask for computer time.
Here are some pictures from this fascinating Micro Lego book. Just look at the colorful detailed photos.
Take a look at some of the items my boys built. My boys had so much fun creating these tiny Lego models. They would build one and with excitement, bring it to me and they create another one. I am amazed at how a book helped my boys have new fun with their Legos building things most people have never thought of building. The Legos got a new life and I did not have to buy more expensive plastic pieces. This book teaches kids to make the most of their Lego collection, no matter its size. It also encourages kids to let their creativity run wild!
