Ben is a HUGE Lego fanatic! He gets the free Lego Club magazine every other month in the mail (if you want to get a FREE Lego Magazine subscription for your little Lego fan, CLICK HERE to go to Lego.com and sign up). He also likes to go to the store and drool over the latest huge Lego sets. Why do they make these Lego sets for kids so HUGE? There is no way Ben could put those together, let alone keep track of all the pieces.
A few months ago, I stumbled across the solution to Ben’s dilemma: bagged Lego sets. The bagged Lego sets can be found anywhere from Walmart to Toys R Us and usually are priced $5 – 10. Not only are they affordable, they are smaller kits so the child is more likely to finish building the item. They come in all the different Lego themes like Star Wars, Harry Potter, etc. so you are sure to find one that your child would love!
My main reason for buying these little bagged kits is so that Ben can have the fun of playing and building with Legos and I don’t waste money on kits that he will lose pieces to. If he doesn’t keep all the kit pieces together, it’s not a big deal to just add them to our big box of Legos. Also, this way, when I see that he is starting to keep the pieces together for each separate kit and is learning to be responsible, then I will start to buy him the larger boxed kits as he matures.
