Legos are some of the best and worst toys.
Best because they are super creative and allow whoever is using them to be creative.
Worst….well have you ever stepped on one?
My kids love building and playing with legos.
A lot of times though, they want inspiration for what to do with their legos. While most of the Legos they get come with their own instructions books, it’s also fun to create new things.
Enter: Lego Building Books.
Lego building or idea books are a great way to get way more use out of your Lego collection. These are books that show how to make creations using the bricks you already have.
Take a look at these books that are available and get started.
