Our grandkids are Lego obsessed and I confess that I’m smitten with them too ( except for those occasional times the bottom of a foot encounters a Lego unexpectedly) . We’ve spent hours looking through this generously sized volume of photos and details about Legos and I’ve learned plenty along with the kids, starting with the earliest bricks and toys from 1955 as well as the newest ones where Legos which focus on coding skills and bringing programmable characters to life.
Who knew Lego once made baby rattles or wooden toys? I’d often wondered about the artists who built record breaking Lego creations. A fair number of those are shown, for the tallest Lego Tower to the largest plane built ( and wow, is it impressive).
The kids immediately honed in on the section of this book focused on cars, planes, ships and trains ( police cars, stunt trucks) while I enjoyed looking ar the various minifigures, especially Minifigures Through the Ages, and picking up some “Smart Building” tips.
If you’re looking for books which you’re likely to enjoy as much as the kids, this should fit the bill.
If you’re reading this review close to the holidays, it’s worth adding this to your list of gifts for a Lego enthusiast. It’s impressively sized and a very nice value, with just the right combination of gorgeous full color photos and detailed info.
