My children love Legos. As in, they'll disappear for a few hours to build and then play with their creations in the Lego room. So when my 5-year old was regularly telling time to the nearest 5-minute mark, we got him a Star Wars' themed Lego watch for Easter. The links are very easy to add as the child grows, which is good with their still-rapid growth in early elementary years. About a year later, the band's attachment to the watch face had worn enough that it was regularly disengaging; eventually, the watch fell off without my son noticing and was lost forever. But he loved it so much and the timepiece is inexpensive enough, we decided to go ahead and replace it with yet another Star Wars' Lego timepiece, just with the Darth Maul character in place of the original Luke Skywalker.

If you want a watch that will last forever, you might consider something with a more traditional band. But if you want something with engaging characters that children love to wear and use to practice their newfound time-telling skills, go with this piece.

Pros:
- The Darth Maul figurine that comes with it was a nice bonus, and when combined with the watch makes the cost of this purchase reasonable even with some problems with durability.
- The face design is cool, my 8 year old loved it and it was a good thing to draw attention to the face while he tries to master telling time.
- The colors are nice looking, and the lego block design caught the eye of many other kids.

Cons:
- The buckle is problem #1. It doesn't hold very good on an active 8 year old's wrist. They have to know the first thing he will do it put it on and mimic using a light saber, and the slightest bump and the buckle gives way.
- Overall cheaply made, from a Dad's viewpoint. It appears to be even cheaper material than standard lego blocks, only making that judgement by feel and appearance. But, it is low cost at around $20 for the watch and figurine, so a person could argue that you're getting what you pay for.
- After a few weeks the Darth Maul character is the only thing still being used. He can't even tell me where the watch is in his room, and he was anticipating it so much he drew a circle around the anticipated delivery date.

If I had it to do over again...I would probably still end up buying it. Because when a kid wants a Darth Maul watch, that's what you get him. And a more expensive version would probably end up damaged at my child's age.

This is a real watch! How great to be able to tell time. It is easy to put on too! Written by Jax and eight year old recipient of this good present.

The first time I saw a Lego watch was in the 1990s during a trip to Germany. I found the idea so cool that I had to have one and spent a lot of money. I had it about 8 years under fairly regular use and it was running all that time. By the time I lost it, Amazon had the Lego watches and I I got a new one for a fraction of the original price. It too became my favorite watch; not only because it is always a conversation piece, but also because I found it easier to read than any of my fancier watches. It died after 10 years of service and used about 4 batteries during that time. They don't seem to make them in the exact same style anymore, so I bought one in the Darth Vader style, presuming that the innards are of the same good enough quality. The links of the arm band seem to be interchangeable between all models so I can now mix and match all different Lego colors. Right now my arm band is black-red-yellow, the colors of my favorite team and winners of the soccer world championship in Brazil.

I gave it to him for Christmas. He loves it. Every time I see him he's wearing his watch. He doesn't know how to tell time yet but I bet it won't be long. He does "guess" at the time. He will look at his watch and say "Hey! It's 12 til 7!" And then a little later, "Hey, it's 10 after 2!" He plays with the lego figure separately. I believe it ended up in his lego bin. But he likes to attach these little lego pieces to his watch as part of his play. On the band on either side of the watch face there is a lego piece as you can see in the picture. He "customizes" his watch with little legos on them. It was a great lego gift that was different from the rest he can wear all the time.

I got this for my son's birthday and he loved it. I didn't realize that you can attach the minifigure onto the watch until he showed it to me. I think the best thing about the watch is that he can grow into it by adjusting the size with the removable links. I'm thinking of getting an adult version for myself.

Can't go wrong with Lego! The watch is fun to wear and the mini figure is lots of fun and hard to get elsewhere.

My son loves his Darth Maul watch. I just wish it would stay on his wrist better. The watch works exactly as it should, however the slightest bang and the watch falls off. The clip just doesn't stay clipped.
