If you’re the parent of an elementary aged child, there are four letters that, when built together (literally), I’m positive are very common in your house: LEGO®!
I remember thinking just a few years ago, “What’s the fascination with LEGO®? Why are parents spending so much money on little plastic bricks?”
Then my son turned 5…
To be honest, there’s something endearing about this classic, imagination-enhancing toy
While my daughter would help her little brother with a build every now and then, it wasn’t until she discovered LEGO® Friends last year that she really got on board the LEGO® train.
Speaking of the LEGO® train, that brings up another less popular phenomenon with parents: traveling with your LEGOs. With all the toys we buy our kids, I find it ironic that these are toys that make their way into our car more than any other.
(If you decide to take the plunge into the dangerous car LEGO® world, take my advice and invest in a dollar store cookie sheet to put on your child’s lap and keep in the backseat…you’ll thank me later!)
However, if you are a little reticent about allowing these precious plastic blocks to leave the safety of your home, I have a brilliant new option for you: the LEGO® Youtube Channel!
Check it out: What I especially love is that it’s super easy to build your own video playlist. So whether your kids love LEGO® Star Wars™ like mine do, or you want to make them their own mix of animated videos and TV trailers, the choice is yours! So now you can take the fun of LEGO® on the road with you…without the fear of picking colorful blocks and mini light sabers out of the car seats after your road trip 😉
With everything out there on the web these days, creating a playlist on the Official LEGO® Channel is a great way to ensure your kids are entertained and watching videos you can feel good about.
