I bought this for my 2 year old daughter to use as a mom-daughter activity. We did the pictures together and then i put it away so she wouldn't lose the pieces. Sometime between the age of 2 and 4 she started playing with it by herself. Even as an adult i enjoyed playing with it, so it was a fun together activity. Great for demonstrating patterning, shapes, art designs.
We used this in groups of 5 in my 4th grade class. Each student was able to create a machine with help from the group. After creating the machine, they used the activity cards- reading and answering the questions for that machine. I went around and checked their answers and then they moved on to the next machine. This is a great tool for understanding simple machines, student led learning, and cooperative learning. I would also recommend the activity cards that go with it.
This is my neice's 1st LEGO set. Perfect choice. Not too much, not too little. We can add on more sets as she gets older and the price is right compared to retailers. Not to mention FREE SHIPPING and No Intrest options! Thank you Overstock for letting me get all my Christmas shopping done in one shot! Happy Holidays!
