Lego Building Sets have always delivered popular educational games. All children enjoy playing with Lego, and love nothing more than having their own sets to play with, though most kids tend to want many different sets, rather than one or two.
Lego, as a toy, is great fun, but as an educational tool it encourages creative games, spatial thinking, and advance planning. Using nothing but Lego blocks and their imagination they can create houses, ships, communities and a whole lot more. This Lego 405-piece set includes a building plate, windows, wheels, doors, and mini figures. It has instructions for building five houses, with 25 photos for inspiration. It also includes the container box for easy storage.
The more advanced Lego building sets are not appropriate for children under 3 years old because of all the small parts but finding the right set for a toddler (Duplo bricks) is certainly time well spent, and it's also reassuring to know that Duplo and Lego are compatible with each other.
