Book Description

Sept. 1 2008 Klutz
A Klutz classic gets bigger, better, and even crazier. In 1998, we published a book of cool things to build with LEGO bricks. Just like that, kids everywhere quit stacking bricks in blocks that don't move and instead began constructing new things that DO things. And today, nearly 750,000 books later, they're demanding more. LEGO Crazy Action Contraptions is a brand-new book of brand-new, high-performance projects. From the Supercharged Speedster to the Squeezeclaw Grabber to the Wall Rocket Racer - all these contraptions spin, stretch, speed, or otherwise spring into action. And all of them are totally buildable thanks to super-clear instructions and step-by-step diagrams. Wonderful as the original book was, this new version is even better, and here's why: In the earlier book, five of the tend projects required bricks that you (hopefully) had at home. In this new version, every single one of the 16 projects can be constructed using just the custom selection of LEGO bricks that come with the book. All you need to supply is a little time, a little energy, and definitely a little craziness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this set April 5 2011

This is a terrific gift for kids into building stuff. Great price, lots of interesting gears and wheel pieces, and while there are many projects to do, these are building blocks to go off and build new stuff. (The big thing at our local school is to build tops out of lego to battle, and this kit has lots of great parts: axles, wheels...)

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique product for Lego fans Dec 8 2013
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I saw this item in a pricey toy store. Amazon's price was 10% less and I bought 2 to get free shipping. One is going to my 7 year old grandson who is just getting into Lego. I have to sit with him to get him to persevere, but I think the book will give him some ideas. The other set is for me -- no -- I will give it to the 5 year old grandson (in another city) when he is more interested.

This is not a stand alone kit, it takes more general blocks to build cars and cranes. The 7 year old has his father's collection of about 4000 blocks (mainly gifted to our son by his grandfather. I expect the 5 year old will build up some of his own.

In summary, Lego is a great toy and books of plans and the general block sets are great gifts. I am not as eager to get into the themed sets which can be very unique to one model or kit. This little kit is good for a multitude of neat projects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good toy for kids who has gotten used to Lego Dec 27 2012

My 9yr old son owns a few Lego sets & he is used to mashing them up to come up with his own robots, planes & cars. For this Christmas, i wanted to give him something that will build on his interest & this worked perfectly. We gifted this + the power functions motor + battery boy unit (from the local Lego store). As soon as he opened it he was able to build motorized cars and we plan to build more gadgets with it.

For the number of bricks in it, it may seems pricey... but the gears in it are rare which you can find only in the most expensive Lego Technic sets. Moreover, this set is cheaper in Amazon than it is elsewhere. With this set your kid will get his hands on experience with basic machines like the pulley, gears, fulcrum, etc. If you want to gift your kid something that is both fun & educational, you can't go wrong with it.
