One toy that I remember growing up with and loving, were legos. I was the only girl in my family and had an older brother… so of course I was more interested in what he was playing with, than barbies or any typical “girl toy.” I find it really fun that I ended up with 4 amazing little dudes in my life who all love legos. Well minus baby Reed ;-), but his time is coming.
I can honestly say I enjoy playing with them still, all these years later.
Lego’s entered our boys lives around the age of 5 with our oldest. There has been some trial and error with it but over all we love them. They encourage creativity and the little lego figures are just cute! My boys don’t call them cute btw ;-) – just me.
I recently found out about The Official LEGO® Channel. My boys love it. It is filled with not only more comic and fun videos but also videos by the designers of legos (did you know they had designers? with rad tattoos? I didnt!) and even music videos, appropriate for children.
I started a play list for my boys. These are great for when I need to get some work done or as a reward for my oldest during the younger boys naps. Since we don’t have cable, this is just a fun alternative for them.
