My family loves LEGO very much. We have all sorts of LEGOs in our house from LEGO Star Wars to LEGO Castle and for the girls, LEGO Friends. Although LEGOs are not cheap, nonetheless my wife and I always feel it is an investment worth every cent as not only is it enjoyable to play with but also helps our autistic kid develop his imagination and motor skills. In fact studies (and my own personal experience) show that LEGO Therapy leads to improvement in social skills of Children with High Functioning Autism and Asperger Syndrome. Then again, that’s another story to tell.
What I’d like to share today is about a LEGO book: “The LEGO Ideas Book” that we purchased recently at Times Book Store, Suria Sabah, Kota Kinabalu. The book features LEGO building projects with tips to supplement, help enhance our LEGO creations and lots of advice from LEGO Master Builders.
As I said we have a collection of LEGOs (and KRE-Os as well) at home. Previously, our kids just built the LEGO set, dismantled it and then re-built it again. However, as time passes by, they begin to find creative ways to work with all the LEGO bricks.
Thanks to internet and LEGO Digital Designer software, they completely changed the way they construct the LEGOs and started to explore other designs and build their own projects. But with limited experience and know how, they struggled with their projects until they found The LEGO Ideas Book.
With The LEGO Ideas Book, you can take what you already have and make something new! Yes, create your own model and be creative. The book is divided into six themed chapters—transportation, buildings, space, kingdoms, adventure, and useful makes—each with basic templates of key models and spreads to inspire you to create your own.
Read all the hints and tips from the Master Builders that can help you turn your classic car into a race car or add a bridge to your castle! Don’t be concerned if you haven’t got all the bricks you need: this book also shows how to simplify details, making this a great user-friendly guide for any building ability. The LEGO Ideas Book will keep kids of all ages creating for hours.
