LEGO Harry Potter and LEGO Ninjago

DK LEGO harry potter
We enjoy LEGO books because they give background to LEGO stories and characters. This brings life to children's imagination, as they build and make their own version of the stories. LEGO Harry Potter Build Your Own Adventure and LEGO NINJAGO Choose Your Ninja Mission were recent books my son enjoyed reading, building, and recreating stories using his imagination.

During our visit to St. Jacob's in Waterloo, we enjoyed playing at the Toy Building Zone located right across the Holiday Inn Express. We also went to the Lego Nation Tour when it happened in Toronto, and had hours of fun building with Lego and finding lots of inspiration.

Reading LEGO books and Building

My children have been LEGO fans since they were little and enjoy all things LEGO from building with the bricks to reading books related to LEGO. Recently, my children were playing with and building using the LEGO Friends Pop Star TV Studio and LEGO Ninjago Ninja Bike Chase sets. We also got them a bigger Ninjago set so they can enjoy putting the pieces together.

My children are huge fans of LEGO since they were little. I love that LEGO allows them to imagine, be creative, build, and feel accomplished. My children started off with big bricks and LEGO Duplo when they were little, and now enjoy building with small bricks.

Win Your Own LEGO Play book

My children enjoy learning from the colourful, and inspiring ideas on the LEGO Play book. There are over 200 creative ideas on how we can use LEGO to build different things such as castles, beach boats and more. It is a wonderful tool to help children and adults build and play.

Ideas On Things To Do In The Summer and Creative Club Inc.

Recently my children and I went to check out the Creative Club Inc. that was started by Rob Gray, also known as The Lego Man. The Creative Club Inc. is an educational company committed to engage, challenge and empower participants through creative play. Rob realized he could make a major impact to children by helping them understand math through LEGO or watch a shy child become social by being part of LEGO building projects and more. His goal was to make learning come alive.

Our Discovery at LEGOLAND

If you a fan of LEGO, then I am sure you too would be excited to be in a place full of LEGO attractions like the recently opened LEGOLAND Discovery Centre at Vaughan Mills mall. This indoor LEGO Centre has lots of fun things that the whole family will enjoy. 
When we were entering the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre it didn't look like much, as we can't see everything from the outside. Once we enter there is a world of LEGO attractions for us to explore.

LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out

All the LEGO Star Wars fans will be excited to know that LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out is available on DVD.  
We thought that this movie was really fun that the whole family can enjoy.  The smooth animation is creative and was fun to watch.  My son was excited to watch this hilarious 22 minutes long DVD.  Since my son loves LEGO and owns some LEGO pieces for Star Wars characters he was very excited to see the Lego characters in action.  This action packed comic adventure also includes a Darth Vader minifigure for children over 6 years.

DK LEGO books and contest

This LEGO DK ultimate sticker collection book was really enjoyed by my little one.  It is better to paste the stickers with the young children instead of them doing the book by themselves.  This way we can ask questions and talk about which stickers belong where i.e. which sticker should we put in the farm or the zoo etc.  
This LEGO DK Brickmaster brings reading and play together.  It helps children follow instructions and build creative toys.  This set allows children to recreate the story that they have read.  It was fun to build the LEGO pieces with my children and see the lego characters from the book in action as the children played with them.  

I liked that the book has five chapters so we can read and build one chapter at a time.  With each progressing chapter the amount of building increases.  Children can also get creative to make their own structures and tell their own story.  This LEGO DK book is for children over the age of 5 years although with supervision 3 1/2 to 4 year old children can participate.  
My daughter enjoyed reading this DK reader about Friends. She liked the pictures throughout the book and related the story to the LEGO characters. 

The story in the reader was interesting so she didn't mind sitting to read the whole book :) These types of DK readers are encouraging for the children to read. The books have fun stories with reading levels. The stories are not too long to finish reading from beginning to end for young children.
