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!
When 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+.
