Lego Ultimate Building Set

Updated on December 2, 2014

Lego Building Set

In these tough economic times, Lego building blocks are a sure thing that parents can count on. Instead of buying the latest toy, many parents are opting for toys that they loved as a child. Lego blocks are great for the imagination, colorful, fun to put together and the creative possibilities are endless.

My 8 year old son had a similar starter set and he would sometimes spend over an hour in his room building his creations. He loved to show me his spaceships, animals, people, cars and tall buildings. His dad would get involved too and the 2 of them would create and have a blast together.

Inexpensive lego Set With Lots of Parts

8 Year Olds Would Love This Set!

This is a great starter kit consisting of multipurpose bricks that can be used to build many creations. There is lots of flexibility here compared to the kits for sale that focus on 1 structure with complicated instructions. There are endless options to build whatever a child can imagine: animals, airplanes, space creatures, spaceships, you name it. This set encourages creativity and is bound to keep children away from the TV for at least a few hours.

Legos: Not for the very young

This set does have some small pieces that could be a choking hazard. I would not allow a child under the age of three to play with any of the tiny parts. My son was 7 or 8 when he had a similar set and it seemed perfect for him. He did sometimes use his mouth to quickly get the smaller pieces apart, especially when he was on a mission to build something special to show me.

Possibilities are Endless With This Lego Set

A detailed review by a boy who definitely knows his Legos! All of the pieces are shown plus some of the building possibilities.

Old Lego Sets Are Back in Style

The retro toys are coming back into popularity this year and that includes the basic Lego sets. It appears that those colorful plastic bricks that kids just stick together are still as popular as ever. They are not the cheapest toy around, however they are very difficult to break and perfect to pass down to brothers and sisters. Even though there are over 400 blocks in the box it is not full to capacity, which means that the box can be used for other Lego storage too.

Lego Bricks and Parts Are Great for Little Fingers

Lego toys are great for developing fine motor skills. The smaller ones aren't that easy to pull apart, but a determined child working on a rocket ship will get the job done.

There are a lot of smaller pieces in this set and some kids may ask for more parts like flat plates, wheels, and larger bricks. A way to add to the set is to go to If you are looking for pieces from older sets go to
