5.0 out of 5 stars Open up your creativity Nov. 22 2011
By Canadianladybug TOP 50 REVIEWER
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great gift idea for the lego kid! April 5 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Ideas April 28 2014
By P M
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars |This book was a No-Fly for me! Sept. 20 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I ordered it for my 5 year old grandson but when I actually looked at it I realized it was written for adults by adults. I didn't think that the description on line was very helpful because it gives not indication of the age group it is written for. When you buy a Lego set it says very clearly on the box what age group it is for but the books don't tell you this. They should! I returned the book because it was not suitable.

My son was thrilled with this. I thought it would have been more directions of how to make the pictures but it's not. He likes it just fine and can make the examples without direction anyway so not bad and a great price for a well made book with great photos

Toys that are shown need special pieces that most kids don't have in their logo arsenal and therefore must purchase more!!

I thought it was an idea book for the kids. You need very specific pieces. It did not interest the kids at all...

4.0 out of 5 stars Lego concepts a hit with 8 year old
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. Read more
