Lego Build and Read

Babygirl and I had the opportunity to attend a Lego Build and Read Party a few days ago.  Our friend Christine was chosen to host the Lego Build and Read Party through House Party.  Christine opened her house to our playgroup so we could come check out these new toys from Lego.  She was sent the Busy Farm set for the kids to try. The book describes Farmer Ted's day on the farm while showing how to build the animals with the Lego pieces. 

Babygirl had a blast playing with The Busy Farm set. She loves books, but being able to help build the animals took it to a new level for her.  The books say ages 1 1/2 to 4 years on them.  While Babygirl had a blast playing with them the older kids, not so much.  There were a couple of 4s/5s there.  Once they went through the book and made the animals that was it for them.  I'd put these more in the 1 1/2 to 3 age range.

In the end, it was good that the older kids lost interest because there were only four book sets sent with the party kit. Christine, being the wonderful person that she is, had made up some goody bags for the kids.  (She didn't want anyone to be left out, as there were 10 kids invited and only the four books sent.)

Currently there are two other Build and Read sets: Grow Caterpillar Grow and Let's Go Vroom.  I look forward to checking these out with Babygirl.  I've spotted them in my local Target for $12.99, but being the cheap frugal momma I am, I'll be on the lookout for a sale!
