It is hard to define best toy ever. I say this because there are so many wonderful kinds of toys and every child like snowflakes like different things. Due to this it is near impossible to call a toy "the best ever" and have all agree.
But in the realm of building toys Lego is the best. With simple bricks you can make so many many different things and when compared to its other similar toys..... such as mega blocks.... it is better. Mega blocks barely hold together.
Now there is also knects (might have mispelled that) but those have trouble looking like what they are supposed to be but Legos have found away to replicate the look of real objects in a fun manner.
So Legos are very good in the building realm.
Also personality I love legos and they were one of my fav toys... even now when I do stumble into a toysRus or some toy store (though mostly there now for video games) I do always stop by the lego isle and look at wonderful things to build.... now sure most lego sets I think are a bit over priced compared to their price tag when I was little.... but they still are bad ass...
Best ever and best of all time questions are impossible to answer, I suppose we can have, best ever 2, 3...
Lego is an excellent toy and is up there with Meccano and other, Tinker type toys, aeroplane construction kits, make your own transistor radio, chemistry sets... although the health and safety lunatics have got their grubby little paws on chemistry sets, and probably electronic engineering kits.
i don't think any toy is the best. my kids aren't lego fans but i was. it's just a matter of opinion.
Alongside Legos, I loved K'nex as a kid. In fact, I loved K'nex over Legos, and even made my dad buy me those huge boxes of them. I remember even making a ferris wheel out of those... it was great. On the downside: K'nex snap really fast.
I wonder why I prefer k'nex over legos. It may be the fact that there were more varied sizes and shapes of pieces. With legos, everything were more or less rectangular (at least the set I had were).
I enjoyed playing with LEGO and although my daughters were never that keen, my son loves it.
I think that there is such a wide range now that it really can stimulate by improving motor skills, analytical skills whilst building it and concentration. For what could be classed as an educational toy it is the tops! ( oh yes my son says that too)
Oh, my...so depends on the child. My son has tons for these plastic building toys and all they do is collect dust. Other families just play and play with them! So, I think it is not easy to find the best toy ever invented because it is subjective. I would vote for the classic little people....the armless ones. Or matchbox...Or ?
Definitely one of the best! I have 8 children and all 8 of them have enjoyed playing with LEGOs....longest lasting toy at our house!!

Has Lego lost its ability to help children 'create?'Now when we think of Lego we think of sets that recreate characters, buildings and vehicles from well know films and themes that Lego have fashioned themselves. Although you still can buy plain ordinary bricks, they are not as appealing to young...
