It’s that time of year when we look for fun and unique Christmas gifts ideas for the children in our lives. I can honestly say there is NOTHING mine have loved more than LEGO sets. Since they were little, it’s been exciting to see their collection grow and the passion for LEGO sets passed down from one to another. I’m sharing 3 reasons why we love them for our kids!
1. Full Engagement for periods of time.
Every parent looks for toys to keep their children engaged and busy for a longer period of time. We love this about LEGO. It is something they enjoy independently, among themselves. The kids easily spend hours manipulating their bricks, creating a variety of builds from instructions or original MOCs (My Own Creations).
The best part of this engagement…LEGO is a guilt-free toy. It challenges your kids to be creative, and doesn’t involve them staring at a screen! Love it!
2.Takes Creativity to the next level.
As I mentioned earlier, we love that LEGO challenges our kids to use creative parts of their minds. They constantly look for ways to change-up their sets, using bricks from multiple sets and creating structures never before seen.
After they are comfortable building from the instruction booklets, they definitely like taking things to the next level. I love encouraging this kind of play, and watching their young minds get moving
Some of the sets we enjoyed building recently were easily picked up at Target, and were perfect for my kids!
3.Perfect for Every Age.
My kids have all played with LEGO sets since they were younger. My oldest still does…even as a freshman in high school. I love that the wide variety of sets also graduate in intricacy, encouraging even better building. They are perfect for any interest, any gender, and any age.
The sets come with clear age guideline suggestions, making it easier for parents to choose the perfect set for their child.
My oldest loves Star Wars. The Star Wars inspired sets have been his favorite, great for him! My husband even loves building and creating with the kids. Building with LEGO sets is great family time all around.
My middle son loves the outdoors, and really enjoyed building the Snow Groomer. My youngest needed something pretty simple to make, and the boys love all the variety of LEGO sets that came in the brick box.
If you’re looking for a great gift for Christmas, make sure you head to your local Target and check out all of the amazing variety of LEGO sets!
