Lego City Giveaway

Yesterday, in our first day of the “Two Weeks of Toys” Giveaway Event, we had some fun Playskool products for babies and preschoolers!

So, today is for the bigger kids out there! And what kid doesn’t love… LEGO!

When Susan and I were young, we loved playing with Lego. It didn’t matter that we were girls – we routinely chose Lego over Barbies. We loved losing ourselves in imaginative play and we used Lego to build stories.

One of our favorite Lego sets (that we inherited from our big brother) was a police set. Last year, I actually dug out our old Lego for Jackson to play with. Lego sure lasts forever!

lego-city-7744-340pix.jpgWhen Lego sent us the new LEGO® CITY Police Headquarters to review, it was almost as exciting for me as for Jackson. It is just as cool as the old stuff, but better! Definitely, it’s a modern classic that Jackson will play with for years. And if Olivia is anything like I was, she will be stealing her big brother’s Lego when she is old enough. (I bet they will argue one day about who gets to keep the Lego for their kids!)

The new 2008 Police theme provides a ton of realistic details, like gates and doors that open, spotlights on the roof, command base tower, and more, as well as seven mini-figures and three vehicles for action-packed play that will last for hours and hours.

I love that the set comes with step-by-step building instructions with a modular building option. With modular building, bricks are separated into numbered packages so one builder, or a team of builders, can complete one section at a time, and then assemble the full set for instant action play. We broke up the sections into different days so it wasn’t too overwhelming for Jackson.

With the Police Headquarters play set young builders can create a police station complete with prisoner cells, an office area, garage, and secret passage walls. Set includes seven mini-figures, police dog, handcuffs, and three vehicles: police van, police car and police motorcycle. Age 6+.

  1. says

    I want this for me!! I was such a lego kid. We only had the plain old retangle ones with a few windows and those flat ones growing up. I promise to share with my girls but I would get first crack at them!!

  2. says

    Now this is a toy right up my son’s alley! He loves, nay, is obsessed with LEGOS right now! I can’t seem to purchase them fast enough for him. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!


  3. Laura Ch. says

    This is so cool! Since I had a brother, he and I would play both lego and GI Joe. I know 2 boys that would LOVE this police station. Thanks for the great giveaway!!

  4. Cassidy says

    My daughter would love this, especially since her daddy would love it so much he would be opening it up and playing with it before she even had a clue what it was. She’s such the daddy’s girl, and this would be great for them. Plus, my son would love to play godzilla baby through it LOL

  5. Bridget Dell says

    I’m in! This is totally cool and all of us would love it. That’s one set that my son is asking for but then again he wants every lego set.

  6. says

    I have two boys, so legos are perfect! But I, as a young girl, spent hours playing legos with my brother, so if we win, I can be in on the fun too!

  7. says

    My son loves playing with legos when we visit our friends house. I’m sure he’d love to have his own set. Currently, he just has my old block ones from when I was a kid, none of the new fangled ones.

  8. says

    We had Lego when I was a kid. We loved them. My niece doesn’t have any yet and she is just getting to the right age to begin playing with them.

  9. picklemommy says

    Bring on the little tiny pieces that make you scream when you step on them barefoot- my boys would go BANANAS for this kit!

  10. says

    The thing I love about Legos is that everytime my son plays with them is they’re something different. One day he builds castles, the next a pirate ship, then they become Star Wars figures. They totally inspire creativity and imagination, instead of a one-function toy that he tires of quickly.

    So sign me up!

  11. Melissa says

    This is SO cool! I, I mean my daughter, would love it (in a few years when she won’t put the Legos in her mouth). Until then I would take care of it for her and possibly let Daddy play with it as well. :-)

  12. says

    My daughter LOVES legos! She got one the houses for christmas, and girl colored tub for her birthday. She has been begging me for this, and would FREAK out if it came home.


  13. says

    Oh wow! What a cool set! We LOOOVE Legos so please count me in.

    I have girls, but we have a bunch of boys here every Friday night during our home Bible study. They have to play with our girl toys, so this would be so great! :)

  14. says

    I always heard positive feedbacks about Lego. And I will get one for my children one of these days but I’m wishing that I will win the Lego City Police Headquarters. I’m sure my husband and son will have so so much fun building this.

  15. haert2home says

    My nephew l-o-v-e-s playing with Legos. Almost as much as his dad. :)
    I’m thrilled at the chance to enter!!


  16. says

    Oh, we’re definitely in for this one. This looks great! My daughter absolutely loves her duplos and it won’t be long before we’re ready for the big time!

  17. says

    My husband is a city police officer and I think he would have as much fun playing with this LEGO set as my son and daughter would 😀

  18. says

    That is so neat! My kids love building things with their dad (although I’m not sure who enjoys it more). This would be so much fun for them to do together.

  19. Ann says

    I would love to win this for my son, he asked this for Christmas but Santa brought him other legos!! It would be great both for my husband and my son to win! Thanks for the great give away!

  20. says

    We hope to pass the love of legos down to our kids, my husband brothers still have a whole Lego room (a big closet) filled with THOUSANDS of legos (from 6 boys).

    Legos rock!!

  21. Laurie Reyes says

    My son would love to play with the Lego City Police Headquarters Set, he has a huge imagination and would have lots of fun!!!

  22. Jennifer Peterson says

    We have just introduced Legos to my son and he is crazy about them. They are really the best toy ever! (I love playing with them too!)

  23. Keith Ahlstrom says

    My 5 year old son has been asking for this for months He takes the lego catalog to bed and reads it until he falls asleep

  25. Kimberly says

    Legos are my son’s absolute favorite. I keep saying no more Legos in this house but this looks great.

  26. says

    Ooops, I entered on the wrong post… trying again. :)
    Wow! I’m totally a Legos fan, and I’m a girl! :-) I have a little boy and I know he and his daddy would get a lot of enjoyment from this set! Enter us, please. :)

  27. Ally K says

    I don’t know who would have more fun with this the kids or my husband and myself…Thanks for entering me :)!

  28. says

  38. Julie Genovese says

    LEGO’s rock. My sons spend hours making new ships and cars and all sorts of wonderful stuff. A police station would be FAB! Thank you!

  39. says

    My son has a new found love of Legos. I really need to hit that isle next time! Even if there are 2 laying there, he puts them together and makes something out of them!

  40. Jacqueline Carpenter says

    I have 2 children and when they were small we played for hours with Legos and my grandchildren need to have Legos and they would love them.LEGOS will never go out of style.

  42. Meg says

    LEGO! My brother and I have a massive collection, which resides at our parents’ house because we argue about who actually owns what sets. If I won, this one would be all mine. My husband would be thrilled, I’m sure 😉

  43. Linda Price says

    I have some old legos my grandchildren play with when they come to visit, but this would be something they would love and be occupied with for hours on end!

  44. Cindi says

    Hello! My youngest son has been putting together Legos, without the instructions, since he was two. my husband is an engineer and maybe that’s where his ability partially comes from. When we went to Disney World and to the Lego Land, he went wild. It was wonderful! Please enter us in your drawing. Thanks very much…..Cindi

  45. Kim Allmon says

    What kid doesn’t like Legos…including us “big” kids! Even though my kids our grown (my youngest is 18), I know some children who would be very happy to get this wonderful set. Thanks for this great giveaway.

  46. says

    Well, I’m like a lot of moms when I say, “I might live to regret this.” But, my boys would love this, even my girls would play with it for hours. Dare I say, my husband might like it too? I think so. I’d love to win it for my family. Kathy

  88. DeAnn says

    This is my son’s dream Lego set. He has several of the small Lego sets that go along with this, the ambulance and police helicopter, but this is the ultimate. He would be overjoyed if we won!

  89. says

    I have a twenty-one year old son that we gave a whole basement room to when he was about 8-9, he had an entire Lego city, it was amazing, he had a Lego train that went around the city he even strung white Christmas lights for street lights. I now have an 8 year old daughter who is so sad that we didn’t keep all his Lego’s,(didn’t expect another child :)) she has a couple sets now but would love this.
