Laser Pegs- Light Up Construction Bricks

These Laser Pegs are awesome! We have the motorized light up construction Runners and the Power Block truck.  Imagine legos that light up and you have Laser Pegs.  My daughter LOVES the motorized construction Runner because it not only lights up, it also moves on its own.  When we first got the sets, we set them up following the instructions.  My daughter had a hard time keeping her attention span on building the vehicles to make what was on the box, but when given free rein to design her own, she enjoyed building her own “cars” and “trucks”.  These bad boys are fun for all ages and for both boys and girls.construction-runner-featured

Koala Crate Activities

My 4 year old daughter loved the “project box” from Koala Crate.  The contents and art projects were thoughtfully planned out in order to use all of the supplies to make suggested projects.  It comes with supplies to complete three projects: an apron that the kids can decorate and then use throughout the rest of the projects, an abstract art canvas painting project, and then a marble rolling/painting project that finishes into a sculpture.  The materials in the art box were all great quality and I enjoyed how the box itself became part of the project (for use with the marble painting).  My daughter really enjoyed the marble painting and is now using the materials to make more fun artwork.  This box has everything needed in order to complete multiple projects with step by step instructions.

The John Deere fun on the farm play set

The John Deere fun on the farm play set was an instant hit for both of my little girls. It comes with four vehicles; all with working/moving parts.  It also includes the accessories such as the people, animals, fence, and hay and rocks for the trucks to carry a load.  I had fun showing my girls all of the ways the tractors can be used on the farm and they really seem to enjoy the fact that they all “do something”.
