My son Sam, is obsessed with Lego. He’s just turned 6 and thinks it’s the best thing – EVER!! Mr Man is quite pleased that his son loves Lego, because he gets to play with it too. Male bonding - at it’s finest.
The latest “big” Lego pack came from his grandparents for his birthday. It’s the Lego police station. After much perusing of catalogues and brochures, he decided this was the one he wanted.
It was built on one of my plastic Ikea trays (with the help of daddy) and remains all set up. He brings it out to play with, very carefully, and then puts it under his bed when it’s not in use. From the worlds most messy child, this is quite a feat!!
If your child is “into” Lego like mine is, read on. I normally don’t like to just copy media releases, but this one has a lot of information that I don’t want to miss or get wrong.
