  • OMG they have been my sons favorite toy since he was about 18 months old and he is almost 7. That is possibly our most played with toy EVER!

    They are great for his imagination, he creates everything and makes up stories to go along with each creation.

    The WORST thing about them is stepping on a lonely random block in the middle of the night.....OUCH!

  • As with Bmat, they are just awesome. My parents bought my bro and I legos for birthdays and Christmas. My parents now use them with my nephew who is 5, he has loved them the last couple years. They are just all around the best and coolest toy for over a period of years. Once they learn to start to follow directions that is an added educational tool.

  • An hour spent with legos is worth more than 5 hrs spent with the latest trendy, battery operated educational toy.
