Customers today are spoilt for choice. The Lego range is enormous, with different kits to suit every age and gaming taste. Any toy fan will be able to find the latest Lego product deals and promotions at Blast My Deals.
Lego was originally founded way back in the 1930’s. Toy maker Ole Kirk Christiansen first created a set of wooden blocks. These blocks could fit together to create larger structures. Lego actually takes its name from the Danish for ‘Play well’ and this company first started producing their now world-famous plastic bricks in 1949.
During the 1960’s and 1970’s, the company began to introduce Duplo, which is specifically targeted towards younger children. Since then, the company has produced a huge variety of different block, kits and accessories, with many based around popular and iconic brands such as Star Wars. However, the main appeal of Lego still remains in the simple act of creating new and unique structures.
Different Lego Products
Lego offers a vast selection of ranges and products on their website at www.lego.com, and this huge selection can often be a little overwhelming for any first-time buyers. However, their full product range can be broken down into the following categories:
- Lego Classic: This is the staple product many parents will have grown up with. This product features the typical building blocks. It also comes with other shapes including wheels, crosses and slanted blocks. The main aim with this collection is to help children explore their creative side. The classic Lego bricks come in a range of box sizes and also include a base plate that can be used to build on.
- Lego Duplo: This is Lego’s introductory product for younger children and contains larger bricks to ensure smaller parts are kept to a minimum.
- Lego Technic: This is a more complex Lego development, which includes elements like motors and pulleys. A number of brands have partnered with this, including Batman, Disney, the Beatles, Star Wars, Minecraft, Scooby Doo, Angry Birds and DC Comics.
- Lego Mindstorms: This series of kits allows users to program Lego robots to help complete basic tasks.
- Lego Video Games: Lego has released a number of computer games based on their products. In fact, since 1995, over 60 games have been released. Users will easily find games for all major gaming systems, including PS4, PC, Nintendo 3DS and Xbox.
What to Consider Before Buying Lego
The type of Lego product you want will depend on a range of different factors. The age of the person playing with the Lego is probably the most important factor in your decision. Generally, Lego Duplo is advised for children up to 3-4 years old. Above that, both classic and branded Lego kits will be a good option. The Lego Technic range is suitable for children over the age of 10, while children over the age of 14 can only really enjoy their advanced Mindstorm range.
