Kids learn a lot playing with LEGO

Building LEGO toys help children master their motor skills. Fine motor skills are developed with LEGO. Because LEGO sets are also infinitely expandable we find children will help improve their imagination and creativity skills. Before testing many of the toys in our lists, we wouldn’t have listed role-playing as something that kids learn with LEGO, but seeing first hand how our kids acted out scenes and had absurdly fun stories they were really getting into convincing us. Kids definitely get creative and act out fun scenes.

The beauty of LEGO sets is that you can customize and create whatever you want. Amid all the lengthy lists of toys you can buy little boys, adding more LEGO to their collection never ends badly. It is a safe gift for any parent or grandparent to buy. We do recommend you buy a kit that is age appropriate simply to make life easier for the kids and parents in terms of putting things together. 

LEGO building develops problem-solving

Following instructions to assemble LEGO also has a lot of benefits for children’s problem solving, focus and attention to detail. Ideas of symmetry, balance, shapes, and sizes are explored during play with LEGO. Children experience working with fractions when they observe how many small pieces can fit into a large piece and can begin to experiment with division.

LEGO promotes teamwork

Through playing with LEGO children learn how to share and take turns. When working together on Lego construction, children have to agree on the general idea of their play – is it a castle, a boat or a spaceship? Children have to follow each other’s lead and begin to understand how different ideas can contribute and extend their play. Children also have to learn to negotiate roles and responsibilities in order to have an enjoyable social experience.

LEGO play challenges creativity

Creativity is improved as children use various shapes, colors, and sizes of Lego to construct intricate designs, be it a police station or a spacecraft traveling to the moon. Creativity and imagination are fostered when children have no limitations to what they can make. In this situation there is no right or wrong, so children can explore their creativity without the fear of failure.

We love when toys can be helpful for the development of our kids and fun at the same time. That is exactly why we love LEGO building sets and blocks. Children practice dexterity as they connect pieces of different sizes and shapes. This requires different amounts of pressure to assemble and becomes a wonderful exercise for little fingers which supports children in being able to control the pressure they apply while writing. These are some the best selling and top reviewed LEGO sets around.
