When I was younger, I played with Lego quite a bit. My mom even bought some ideas books that I still have to this day and now my own kids are using them. But DK Canada now have a fabulous book that I knew my kids will jump on it when they see it.

This book is simply amazing and contains numerous ideas where you and your kids can build from. Not only will it give you building tips but you will find ideas that will spark your own imagination. The book is divided in six sections full of construction ideas.

Planes, Trains & Automobiles cover any vehicles that you can think off.

Town & Country will guide you in how to build a building whether it is in town or in the country.

Out of this World is a section that will present anything from out of space.

In Days of Old will bring back in time and guide you in building Medieval structures.

A World of Adventure will bring you into the world of pirates, Vikings, the jungle as well as robots.

Make & Keep will guide you in building useful items like desk organizers or board games.

Each section always star by presenting some of the bricks you might need to complete the ideas included in it. Some people might find that it is unfortunate that some pieces are not easy to get and I understands their problem. Recently, I saw a marvelous box of Lego at Wal-Mart and checked to see if strange pieces were included in it. There was not many out of the ordinary pieces unfortunately. I would have consider getting the box if it would have been the case. I am still thinking I might purchase it because the bricks I had when I was younger are older and break easily. But not having special pieces to build the ideas in this book could be discouraging.

I buy used lego for my kids without instruction manuals, because I think it's good for them to use imagination. I mean, lego is a building system, not a collection of models. This book is colorful, fun, imaginative, and opens pathways to enjoying the toy more. Some of the ideas however, seem to use some pretty specialized pieces. I was hoping for the use of more simple blocks. Still fun though.

My 8-year old grandson has loads of Lego and, rather than adding to his collection, I thought that this book might give him fresh ideas for using what he already owns. Christmas morning, after the gifts were all opened, he picked up this book and thoroughly perused each page.

When he had finished, I asked him if he would be able to make the models pictured with the the Lego he currently owns. To my delight, he again went through the book and - although most of the concepts use specialized parts that he does not have - he pointed to almost all of the photos while saying that yes, he would be able to make this one and that one.... etc.

This book may save the planet (well, perhaps your house), from being buried under Lego.

I ordered this for my son, who loves lego. I knew he would be receiving a few lego gifts over the Christmas season and thought this book might help him see what else he can build with all of his extra pieces. He enjoyed it so much that he wanted to give a copy of the same book to his cousin for his birthday.

Book wasn't exactly what I thought it would be. Was looking for a Lego book that has building diagrams NOT just pictures of what could be built.

My son loves his LEGO. We bought him some "sets" which got torn apart almost as soon as they were painstakingly put together (by my husband). This book lets him use the set pieces to create new and interesting "things". He leafs through it, and is now digging into the bin. Success!
