Girl Lego

I’m not quite sure when they started pushing out girly Lego, but I’ve only become aware of it in the past year or so.

A friend bought K a very awesome “book and lego set” for Christmas – where larger than A4 size book tells a story of the adventures of two intrepid girls.  There are 5 stories in all, and thus 5 permutations of little “sets” that can be created with the pieces that come with the book.

K and I (ok mostly I) have made 4 sets so far, and I am continually amazed at how versatile the pieces are.  Cups can be inverted to portray flames in a fireplace, arch pieces can become branches, and whilst there are many familiar ‘standard blocks’, the addition of new “leaves” and curved bricks (even a “pink diamond”) lend an interesting twist to the creative process.

So here they are, the girls having found “treasure” (crown and diamond) hidden in a “dark cave”, where the “salmon” swim upstream at a “waterfall”…

Sometimes I find that I’m enjoying my second childhood though my kids’ toys, a little too much!

      Boys are really into the Ninjago versions right? I think the star wars ones are cool too!
