Good for kids with an imagination
on January 1, 2014
I've looked over and over at the Lego books, but they all use specialty parts that you can't get. My 6-year-old keeps asking me to buy one. When I found this, it looked a little more practical, and it is. Again, they use some specialty pieces that either aren't available period and/or I don't have them. The difference is that it isn't too hard to figure out how to adapt these examples. Keep in mind that I'm older and grew up when Legos were mostly basic sets, not the specific ones. Now, kids think they have to follow the step-by-step instructions to create anything because the sets have become so specific. So that's why I'm only giving it 3 stars. I think it would become frustrating to kids that expect the step-by-step instructions. This book does not do that. You need to use your imagination.
