Introduce Your Young Child to Lego


December 15, 2010

My First Zoo by Lego

Lego
Designed for children 2-5 years old, Lego has created an introductory play set for your younger child.  This set comes with 60 piees and includes:

* Zoo keeper, baby elephant, tiger, polar bear and giraffe
* A zoo keeper vehicle
* Several Lego Blocks to create trees, buildings and more


Review:

For those of you who think that Lego is only for older children, I want to introduce you to My First Little Zoo.  This is a GREAT toy for yournger children.  The blocks in this set are a loarger block for small hands.  The larger size makes them easy to hold and manipulate.  Even at an early age, children can work to put together the building and trees.  This is a great way to build logic skills and finger dexterity.  While I have listed this as a boys toy, this set actually is wonderfulf or girls or boys.  The zoo setting makes it gender neutral.  2 Thumbs up Lego on this toy!


Retail Price: $24.99




*Waxhaw Union County Macaroni Kid was provided a My First Zoo by Lego for review.
