Congratulations to Jade the winner! Thank you everyone for entering
These are my little twinnies, about to finish their first year of school and also huger than huge LEGO fans. In fact we’re all LEGO fans in this house. I have memories of creating my own castles and fortresses with my big LEGO set which had a little drawbridge. But my twinnies usually need a bit of help to put together a LEGO set once we’ve opened the box or the sets that they really want are age 8+ and need some help from their big sister or someone else.
LEGO Juniors is new and bridging the gap between LEGO DUPLO and larger LEGO sets with these great colourful tubs and super easy to read instruction booklets. Designed for children aged 4-7, the pictures in the instructions are bigger and simplified and these two put the castle together in no time. With no help. That’s a great sense of achievement for these two. And instead of opening the box to find 6 or so bags of LEGO to work through there were 3 which kept things simple enough for them but still a challenge that they wanted to finish. And LEGO Juniors is great for little fingers, putting everything together and pulling it apart as well as creative play as you make up stories and play with what you’ve created.
Plus LEGO is all about imagination and creating your own……….once you’ve followed the instructions in the book you can go on to create your own wonderful creations. Like putting a head on top of a flag pole. That sort of thing. There are no rules when it comes to LEGO…oh no wait yes there are. Rule number 1 you pack it away or some will end up in the vacuum. Rule number 2 don’t walk barefoot on a piece unless you want a painful encounter. I think they are the 2 Lego rules in our house.
Christmas and birthdays are most definitely our favourite time to buy LEGO. You can add to existing collections and you can never go wrong with LEGO. The LEGO Juniors kits can also be used to add to your existing or future LEGO sets which is great news in this house as I’ve lost track of how much we actually have. And still want. I get regular updates on who wants the Shopping Mall from the girls and which Lego Harry Potter my big guy wants for Christmas.
And to share the love I have one of these LEGO Juniors sets to give away as well as a $120 gift card for you to spend on LEGO this Christmas. You don’t have to tell me how great that’s going to be as we get closer to Christmas time……I want to win for my little ones.
To enter is super simple, just tell me who you’ll be giving this great LEGO prize to and why?
Giveaway is open to Australian residents, entries close 18th November 2014 and full terms of my giveaways can be found here.
