It’s that time of year again. It’s Easter time. Not only is it Easter time but I am sure you might have a child’s birthday on the horizon. As such, you may be stumped as to what to put in the Easter basket or to get for your own child for their birthday. Well here’s and idea that I want to share. Why not give them LEGO? You can be the coolest parent around. Maybe even trumping the Easter Bunny! On second thought there is no trumping the Easter Bunny but still. So what cool things does LEGO have to offer you may ask? Well let me show you and maybe give you a couple ideas.
If you have a girl, finding LEGO’s for them used to be hard. That is not the case anymore. There are many sets for girls to enjoy. One of the ones we got a chance to try was the Disney Princess- Jasmine’s Exotic Palace Set. It is for girls aged 5-12. It totals 143 pieces which is a decent size. It comes with Jasmine and her pet tiger (my daughter says it’s her pet so I will believe her lol). As you may have guessed from the title you get to build Jasmine’s Palace. Which is awesome might I add. But the fun doesn’t have to stop there. There is a whole Disney Princess line for you or your child to collect and explore. From Frozen to Cinderella, there are so many LEGO sets to explore! Girls will have an awesome time building the many great places in the Disney worlds that they have seen in the movies!!
Now I’m sure your wondering about the boys. Well as we know there is no shortage of sets for boys. But I would like to briefly discuss one of the newest lines. It is LEGO Technic. So what’s so cool about this line you ask? Well with these, if you pull back on some of them, they will zoom down the hall. Pretty neat right? The specific set we got to build was the LEGO Technic Quad Bike. This set is for ages 7-14. It has 148 pieces. Another decent size set. There are no figures with this one but that is ok. Remember you get a Quad Bike that really moves! Also if you look on the back of the box you will see something really awesome. If you buy the other specific Technic set that works with the Quad Bike, you can create a whole new vehicle. Now that is awesome. My son loved this set as it was something new and not like the other sets he has. Your boys will love it too.
So when thinking about Easter and birthdays this year, think about adding a LEGO set to the mix. LEGO makes an awesome gift year round!!!!
