Twins, Max and Duncan, who own a million Legos, LOVE these light-up construction Laser Pegs. I’m talking over the top squeals, laughing, “this is cool” LOVE. You know that kind, right?
They’re obsessed with the World of Bugs building set which has 84 Laser Pegs. Above they’re checking out the 18-pages of bug model directions. One boy decided to follow the directions while the other made his own inventions. Either approach works and has it’s own learning and design benefits.
Of course we know that building with blocks has lots of brain boosting benefits beyond just the improved hand-eye coordination. Remember this research about block play?
Create and Decorate
What can you create with these Laser Pegs? Well, bugs and bug-like creatures, of course, as well as robot-like figures, and action-figures.
Max’s grasshopper actually became the center piece at the family’s Easter table –all lit up. (Now there’s a new decoration tip Martha might not have thought of!)
The entire set reminded the twins of a science unit in school on electricity. And, they loved the choice between batteries and a docking station. Lots of science lessons.
The boys mom says, “I LOVED it because it made them think, follow directions, stretch in ways they hadn’t in awhile. It excited me that they were following directions with an added dimension (light/sound). I had to hide them in order for homework to get done. I would definitely recommend this. It was a HIT!”
