Two of the most popular toy groups are Lego building sets and Disney themed toys. Imagine the excitement when a child opens a present that is a Disney themed Lego building set. As Lego grew over the years, so did the intricate specialty sets, and they now include some of the popular Disney products.
The act of building with a Lego set can involve a great amount of creativity, and if a set is used it can teach following directions. If directions are not followed, the intended result will not be achieved. This is an important lesson for a child. And, Lego sets teach how things can be connected to form something new and wonderful.
In addition to being a teaching tool, Lego blocks can be useful in developing dexterity by the fact they require fine motor skills. In addition, hand to eye coordination is simultaneously developed.
These skills can be essential in development, so children should benefit in several ways from working with Lego blocks. Duplo blocks address the same developmental advantages in an age appropriate manner for younger children. Hence, Lego and Duplo blocks are much more than toys. The use of material that interest most children, such as Disney subject matter, can be an aid in providing the interest for the children to pick up the blocks and attempt reaching a final result.
Another advantage to buying a Lego set. A canister of Lego blocks, or a combination of several Lego sets and Lego block canisters is the opportunity to work with the child. You can develop a bond with the child. Sets like Lego sets offer a bonding opportunity with something that is of interest to both the adult and the child.
