Finding the perfect gift for tween is tricky

They think that their little brothers and sisters toys are too childish for them. Yet, their age range is actually too young to play teenager's toys and games.

Perfect Gift for LEGO Lovers

This is unlike the other LEGO Game. Basically there is a Lego Dice, a set of cards (96 cards in total) and an instruction booklet.

There are four main categories: Buildings, Nature, Things, Vehicles and the card is divided into three levels: easy, medium and hard for each category. So you'll need to roll the dice to pick the category and then pick the card from that category to see which LEGO building you'll need to build.

There is no set of image that will help you to create this building, so you need to use your imagination and creativity.

After you finish building it, someone else will need to guess what you built.

A great fun game for a whole family!

A variety of hoops, hurdles, funnels, and a teeter-totter can be positioned however you choose on the game console. Players use their minds to move the ball under, over, or through the obstacles. Several games test speed, while another challenges players to lift a ball up and through a funnel, shooting it across the game console to score points.

While Mindflex's advanced technology is sure to intrigue, mastering the games may prove difficult for some. Because concentration techniques will vary from person to person, the game rewards patience and a willingness to experiment. Fans of mazes and brain teasers will appreciate the mental challenge, and creative types will like designing the obstacle courses.

Mindflex's game console requires four "C" batteries (not included), and the headset requires three "AAA" batteries (not included). The four foam balls should be handled with care to keep their ability to levitate. Fortunately, the game console features an inner compartment for safe ball storage.
