Valentine’s Day is not just for couples anymore. It’s a great time to bond with your children over something other than the endless trail of treats, enormous boxes of chocolate, and little cards with meaningless phrases. Instead, give your little ones a gift that will keep on inspiring them and brightening their faces with smiles, long after the joy of February 14th is over. This is the power of LEGOs and LEGO brand products.

 Lego City


As we all know, LEGOs are awesome. They are relatively inexpensive, fun, and deeply engaging. Give a child any LEGO City set, and watch their imagination run wild. In a few moments, you can observe your entire living room transform into a space station, a marina, or a completely interactive princess fantasy land. The possibilities are endless and so is the amount of laughter everyone will share when you foster your child’s imagination. Not only are LEGOs a great way to encourage social interaction, but they also challenge their fine motor skills, and offer children the chance to reap the tangible rewards of accomplishment and pride, togetherness, and creative thinking. Let them be forever inspired while building Lego City kits or diverging and creating their own LEGO wonderland.






[heading style=”1″]LEGO Video Games:[/heading]


Are you children a little older and want to step away from stacking blocks on the carpet? Do you kids love technology and own all of this generations gaming consoles? Then why not give them a game to bring out the diehard kid and geek in everyone? LEGO video games are a staple in my home. We have everything from LEGO Star Wars to LEGO Harry Potter. We’ve spent hour upon countless hours immersing ourselves into the lore of our favorite stories while becoming our favorite iconic characters.
Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7
For someone who’s never played a LEGO game before, from start to finish you can expect roughly 10 to 15 hours of gameplay. However, for those of you who are seasoned gamers and know your way around a Red Brick, LEGO video games can linger for up to (and sometimes more than) 30 hours. LEGO games are the games that keep on giving. Between puzzles and exploration, parents and their gaming kids will have plenty of bonding time and plenty of comical situations to laugh over and enjoy. But you don’t have to take my word for it, grab any LEGO game and let the EPIC fun begin!

    I love LEGO figurines! Lately it’s a big thing for all the kids to collect and trade them so we are always getting them for the kids. The little surprise individual figures are always sold out around here though!

    • Diayll

      Figurines? That sounds totally awesome! Need to get myself some of those since I collect action figures already.

    I love Legos…I have no kids though, lol. It’s one of the few things that can be considered ‘toys’ that I actually still do. It’s kind of a stress reliever. I love the video games too and I can spend hours just trying to complete it fully. If I had kids they’d definitely have Legos.

      LEGOs are a must have! And you’re right, they do relieve stress…well unless you get mad when trying to get all those darn red and gold bricks *sighs* maybe that’s just me! LOL

      Thanks for stopping by!

    Johnny has them all for Wii and his DS. I love them because there is no gore/blood. Oh and physical sets? We have more than we can count.

      hahaha yea they aren’t violent, which is a plus cause I can play them with Seanna around. LOL

  • Cat @ Addicted 2 Heroines

    I love playing Lego games on the 360 with my son! The only one we haven’t gotten around to finishing yet is Lord of the Rings.

    • Diayll

      Lego games are the best…I don’t know how I could live without them. I am a total 100% achievement hog when it comes to these games, so of course they take me a million years to finish!

      Thanks for stopping by!
