Gift Idea: The Lego Book

The Lego Book

- information taken from the DK Canada website

Reveal, explore, and celebrate the fascinating LEGO® story in The LEGO® Book. From its beginnings in a carpenter's workshop and the development of the first plastic brick, to the group's current position as an international brand, a timeline highlights key moments in LEGO® history. 

Fascinating facts on every significant LEGO® product line, theme park, video game, artwork, competition, club, collectible and more combine with images from the LEGO Group's photo archives-many seen here for the first time-and inspiring ideas on how to make a variety of things from just a few bricks. Packaged in a beautiful slip case with cutting-edge design, this two-volume set also features Standing Small-a 96-page book celebrating the minifigure.

Our whole family thinks the Lego Book is unbelievably cool... but my son Aiden positively adores it. Aiden (age 8) is a Lego-fanatic and he was over the moon when it arrived at our house. He has spent hours pouring over the pages, he keeps it beside his bed at night, he has taken it to school  show his friends... he really loves it. Owen (age 7) was especially impressed with Standing Small. He loves going through and reading the names of each little Lego character. 

The Lego Book is incredibly informative- I've learned a ton and I enjoyed the look back at Lego's from when I was a kid. My husband said reading it was like a walk down memory lane because he had some of the sets in the book when he was a kid. He thought that was really cool. The photography is excellent as well. I think this is the perfect gift for the Lego fans in your life!

Thanks so much to DK Canada for sending me this book to review!

I just saw this in the kiddo's Scholastic order. It looks super cool. Thanks for the review... it was only after seeing this review AND seeing it in Scholastic that I even thought about it as a gift option. I think we'll be owning one soon! :)
