    Editorial Review

    Many high-tech toys start with a fun and fascinating idea only to make it frustratingly complicated in the execution. Leave it to LEGO to make a technologically advanced toy fun to play with. The enormous 718-piece LEGO Mindstorms Robotic Invention System lets you construct a variety of moving robot vehicles and then program them from your Windows 98- or Windows Me-compatible computer. The robots are all based around a bright yellow basic unit, which serves as the functional heart of whatever is being built. The brick receives commands from the computer via an infrared tower unit. The computer interface is incredibly user-friendly and intuitive. What's most impressive about the system, however, is the variety of robots that can be built. There are detailed instructions for each one, and since these are LEGOs, builders are free to come up with an endless variety. --John Moe ... Read more

    Music stimulates the brain and encourages early learningskills. This interactive cube lets children choose from any combinationof five different instruments--harp, French horn, piano, flute, andviolin--to collaborate on eight Mozart tunes. A solo flute might playan excerpt from "Ah! Vous Dirai-je, Maman (Twinkle, Twinkle)," or aFrench horn intone a theme from The Marriage of Figaro. Otherchoices include "Country Dance #5," "Come Sweet May," "Der Vogelfanger"(from The Magic Flute), "March in D," "Landler," and "LàCi Darem la Mano" (from Don Giovanni). Press the "orchestra"button and hear all the instruments play together. As the songs play,each selected instrument button flashes to the beat. The sound is notorchestral quality, but you get a fair electronic approximation of eachinstrument. Operates on three AA batteries (not included). --TamiHoriuchi ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Toy
    We received this toy as a gift when my son was about 2 weeks old. Even then he would accidently set it off with his little jerks and spasms (it is extremely sensitive)and he seemed to enjoy it.It is loud, but it never frightened him and he was brand new.By the time he was three months old he was purposefully setting it off and now he's almost two years old and he still loves it.He is more interested in the way he can make only certain instruments play and how the same song sounds different if a different instrument plays by itself. He recently cracked it though, but we have no idea how.(It is made of very durable construction, so I can't imagine what he must have done to it, but then he is very hard on his toys)We just noticed it broken in his room one day.But, after two years of daily play I'd say it gave our family a good run.I have a new son due in four months and I can't imagine not buying this toy again.I highly recommend this toy.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Boring toy
    My daughter got this for Christmas when she was about 6 mos old.She rarely ever plays with it.She was slightly amused with this toy for a month or two.She never plays with it now.When she did show interest in it, it only lasted a few moments.The music does get a little annoying because my daughter liked it when all instruments would play at the same time.Nothing special about this toy and it's loud.Would not recommend.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous toy
    My 6 month old is captivated by this toy. He loves to hear the music and it's easy enough for him to press the various sides. The music and the lights hold his attention. This actually belonged to his now 5 year old sister and it's held up well in the five years we've owned. I highly recommend it. ... Read more

    The incredibly popular LEGO Bionicle series approaches the long-standing tradition of building toys in a different way than anyone who is only familiar with older LEGO sets might expect. Bionicle imagines an epic battle being fought in a far off planet where everybody, somewhatcuriously, is built out of LEGO blocks. In this limited edition Bionicle set, we meet Ultimate Dume (the homonym is no accident) who seeks to wreak havoc on the unfortunate residents of Tua Nuva. There are 555 pieces in all and the finished product is indeed an impressive and nimble looking towering creatures. Of course, since its LEGO, the bricks can be used for an infinite variety of other purposes to build yet other creatures limited only by the builders imagination. --Charlie Williams ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars I wish I had read up on the story behind the toys first
    My 7 year old loves his Bionicles especially this set because it was challenging to put together. But If I had it to do over again I wouldn't have let my son have these toys just because I disagree with the movie and stories behind the toys. And also how expensive it is to collect all the pieces. The series doesn't end, there is continually more and more bionicles to collect. I let my son have the Bioncles because to me they look like challenging lego robot sets to put together and some of his cousins had them. But if I had read the stories and the info presented in the movies first he wouldn't of had any of them. And I wouldn't have let him get hooked on them and wanting the rest of this endless series. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Record & Play is a nice set
    I have a ton of LEGOs, including a Mindstorm and a Spybot, so what's different about the Record & Play?The core of this set is the brick with two motors with integrated rotation sensors.Push the red button and push the robot through it's moves (up to 20 seconds).Then hit the green button to play it back.It plays back fairly accurately, although it is a bit jerky (it doesn't play the motors slow, but short bursts of fast).As a bonus, the tail end of the brick has a shaft input that does the same thing as pressing the play button every time the axle turns.This is useful for building something that has the motor block hidden inside, making the buttons hard to reach, or for making the 'bot respond to some stimulus (My next plan is for a passing LEGO train to flip a lever, causing the shaft to turn, which will trigger the playback to lower and then raise the crossing gates).There is an on-off switch on the bottom, and the robot will remember it's programming even when turned off, as well as an auto-shutoff if left alone for 10 minutes to save batteries.
    Normal play mode runs through the actions once and stops.Hold down the play button for a couple seconds and it switches to mode 2, which repeatedly plays the commands forwards and backwards.Pretty cool.Do it again to get into mode 3, which repeatedly plays the commands forwards.This is very handy too.
    The 192-page book shows how to build five models: a bug that hops along on two wheels and 2 legs, a dog with 3 wheels, a pen plotter, a 4 legged crab with claws, a standing-up walking robot, and a drummer.Much briefer instruction are shown for a dune buggy, a catamaran walking bug thing, tractor, a grabber, a block thrower, and a card dealer (and probably a few more).
    The other pieces included in the set are fairly standard, a nice mix between Technic and standard bricks in pleasing tan and greens (lime and forest).The only really new piece is a right angle 1:1 gear box.Two are included in the set.
    I like the fact that there is no real programming involved, no computer required, and it is very quick to get the bot moving.The kit has LEGO's usual excellent quality throughout. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Young children have a seemingly infinite capacity for exploration, investigating everything thoroughly and relentlessly as they try to learn about their world. While this Fisher-Price set is not likely to fully satisfy that curiosity, nothing ever will, it is likely to keep young kids quite busy and occupied. Eight blocks are included in the set, the clear cubes found in many modern Fisher-Price sets, and they are the key ingredients in the five interactive sides of the cube. There are options to stack the cubes up on a rack and then release them to tumble down with a turn of a lever, put them though holes to initiate perky sounds and flashing lights, and plenty of other fun games that should delight toddlers. Inside the block is room for up to 30 Fisher-Price blocks. There is some cause and effect teaching going on here but, as with all good educational toys, toddlers are not likely to think much about the learning; theyre too busy having fun. --Charlie Williams ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great all-in-one!
    I absolutely love this toy- and so do my two little ones (twin 11 month-olds).We received this as a gift when they were 5 months old & I thought I would die, as it is pretty big & we have a small space. The babies loved it- all the sounds, lights, and the toys are so cute- the babies loved to hold them in their hands and inspect every them.They seemed to learn to sort & stack pretty quickly after recieving this, and seem to learn a new skill every couple of weeks- all with the help of this one big toy.Yes, it's big, but it also means you don't have to buy 4 toys that do what this ONE will.So sturdy- I will have one baby leaning on this on either side & it won't budge (I'm sure it's capable of slipping, but hasn't happenned yet).OH- WE DID PUT SOME GRIP TAPE ON THE BOTTOM OF IT SO THAT IT WOULDN'T SLIDE AROUND ON THE CARPET OR HARD WOOD- MADE FOR AN ALMOST ACCIDENT-FREE TOY BY DOING THIS.WOULD RECCOMEND TO EVERYONE!

    4-0 out of 5 stars suprisingly pleased
    I bought this toy for my son when he was 8 months old. I was looking for some type of stand up play toy since he was trying to pull up on everything. I was torn between this and a play table. My son has been very happy with it. When I first got it open and we were checking it out I was very disappointed at the lack of activities. It seemed that it really did not do much. I was tempted to take it back. but as I watched my son with it I changed my mind. After all it was for him right? He seemed very entertained and he loves to put his weebles and balls on the spinning thing. I also bought the insurance that came with it. I normally would not do that but I had heard about the problems with the music and lights stopping after only a few months. My son bangs on this thing constantly. WE have not even had to change the batteries yet. He loves this toy. and my 5 year old daughter loves it too. They seem to get alot of enjoyment out of it. I was told you could buy more talking blocks for it but I have not seen them anywhere.

    My 11month old never got interested in it!We would sit in the floor & play w/ it!I would show her the different things it did!
    She would loose interest quicly!I think one of the mogor things wrong w/ it is the music is not loud enough to keep there attention!We have it turned all the way up & it still is pretty soft.Her other toys are pretty loud & they keep her playing!The box only has one speaker & it is on the side.So maybe if they put more than one speaker it would be better. ...

    You can really bug out with this 487-piece LEGO set especially aimed at the creative entomologist. The set could be used to make anything from dinosaurs to deep space stations, but the thick (83-page) manual is aimed squarely at the Legologist who wants to design crawling critters. Spiders, scorpions, snails, and worms--if it buzzes or slithers you can make it. Frogs, lizards, a crab, and a bird round out the suggested menagerie, and of course there’s no rule against inventing new species of imaginary arthropods. Hop on over to this set and get bitten by the LEGO bug! --Richard Farr ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Bugs & Other Wild Creatures Fun
    I recently purchased this for my four year old son and we have a great time building the creatures in the booklet.So far, we've built the spider, lizard, and crab.He loves it!The many intricate details do challenge him but we work together and have great fun.I did purchase a container to store and separate the colors and various bricks so we can find the pieces efficiently.I am amazed by all the various pieces and how much lego bricks have evolved over the years.This set definitely provides hours of fun and creativity.We would purchase other Make & Create sets in the near future.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money
    When my son was four he was such a fan for bugs and animals that I decided to buy the Lego Wild Collection for his fifth birthday.I knew he would be a year younger than the recommended age of 6+, but I figured I could help him. When he received the toy he was thrilled and immediately engaged me to build the Crab.It was very hard because there were about 500 pieces, most of them very small pieces, but after an hour of "needle-in-the-hay-stack" hunt I succeeded in locating all the necessary bits.My boy was able to put most of the pieces in by consulting the book's step by step instructions, but about 10% of the time he couldn't understand it and I would have to show him how.Although he isn't a patient boy he was engrossed with the project and never lost focus, and in the end he was proud of the Crab and admired it for hours.

    After I complained to my husband, a plumber, about the difficulty in locating the tiny pieces, he suggested that I go to the hardware store and buy a utility box that contained different compartments for the various parts.I found one such box with a lid and 12 compartments and sorted all the chunks out by size and color.Everything was a breeze to find after that - I wonder why Lego doesn't provide such a box.

    Since then my son and I have dedicated about 12 hours building various creatures such as snakes, snails, spiders, scorpions, birds, fish, jelly fish, mosquitoes, daddy-long-legs, and we are not even half way done with all the possible 63 creatures yet.It was fun even for me because back when I was a kid Legos weren't half this fancy.The Lego website shows many extra pictures of various things one can build with the Wild Collection.We did have one missing piece - the Ant's belly - but Lego is sending it for free after I ordered it from their website. Today my son succeeded in building the Ant by substituting the missing piece with a different piece.He worked on it for 4 hours, mostly by himself because I couldn't find the time to do it with him, and he succeeded, to my total amazement, since the Ant is one of the hard ones to build.(There are 3 levels: easy, medium and hard.)It is amazing to see how fast he is learning to put the pieces together.

    I would like to yell "Bravo!" to the Lego designers for coming up with such a wonderful toy.It isn't cheap, but in comparison to the amount of time a child spends with the toy, I think it is more than worth it.One can, of course, get a small, cheap Lego thing that can build only one thing, but after the child builds the same thing a couple of times he gets sick of it.This way, because there are so many pieces, there is a huge variety of things one can build, so you pay four times the money but you build a hundred times more critters too because you can reuse the parts.I just think it makes much more sense this way, and I highly recommend this toy to anyone.

    Tip:There is a grey piece shaped like a handle.It is for taking the built legos apart.It doesn't say that in the instruction booklet, but that's what I figured it must be after I spent a few days prying stuff with the butter knife!

    The part of the review is added 2 months later:
    My son is done with the wild life lego set.I would say that he's spent more than 200 hours on it.On some days he worked on it day and night, and he can build every single critter in their without any help from me.Familiarity definitely breeds understanding in this case.Now he is moving on to the other Lego designer sets.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beastly Fun Building!
    My seven year old loves LEGO's, and is thinking of them in a whole new direction with this kit.Before he would only make cars, buildings and etc. (I'm not complaining!).He loved building the creatures in the book, and has started using them to invent his own animals.The creatures in the book are at different difficulty levels, but you can build even the biggest ones and still have enough left over to build more.My son has at least three of the biggest put together now, at the same time. ...

    Fully equipped for looting and plundering across the high seas, this pirate ship sports a massive wooden hull powered forward by six sails, three adorned with skulls and crossbones. Triple-firing cannons lay above and below deck, while a sword-wielding captain commands two crew members. A parrot can rest atop the captain's shoulder. There's also a working wench for hauling up all that misbegotten treasure and a removable dinghy for one-off raids. Other elements include a deployable anchor, a walking plank, and a yellow guard rail that circles the deck. The boat measures over 2 feet long once assembled, and can be put together in several ways, outlined in the accompanying booklet. --Andy Boynton ... Read more

SO, IF YOUR KIDS DON'T ACTUALLY WANT TO PLAY WITH IT, JUST PUT IT TOGETHER, OVER AND OVER AGAIN, IT'S GREAT. BUT IF THEY ACTUALLY WANT TO HAVE THE "PIRATE ADVENTURE" , IT COMES UP A BIT SHORT.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Investment!Activities for many levels and interests!
    I'm a mom that has to buy one toy that will serve multiple purposes.So you can imagine my joy when I came across the Music n' Play table!On the top side, it's split between a piano and activity center, then flip it over and underneath is a miniature "lego" building table.Plus, it has storage for the lego pieces!I was looking for an activity table for my 8-month old son because he likes to stand and pull himself up on things.We've had absolutely no problems with its stability. Actually, he uses it like a walker, pushing it all around the kitchen.And it easily entertains more than one child at a time.I was hoping it was available at stores in my area, but even with shipping and handling, it was well worth the price.I highly reccomend this toy, I know Colin will enjoy his Music n' Play Table for a long time.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Fun, but what's with the music?
    Our 13-month old enjoys this table a lot.However it sounds like all the preprogrammed music was done in Shanghai.Vaguely American pieces are played with distinctly Chinese instruments and arrangements, basically comprising a sad-sounding fiddle, xylophones, and drums.It's some of the strangest music I've ever heard from any kids' toy (and unfortunately it's somewhat scratchy due to poor sampling or tone generation).Also be aware this item takes two sets of batteries: one for the activity area and the other for the music area.Pros: easy assembly, lots of items for the toddler to play with, and unlike many of their other toys it's one they can play with standing up.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fun to look at, not to run around with
    Quick notes -- I put this together for my 6-year-old. It's the first time I've done a new-fangled Lego set, and it took me about 3 or 4 hours. The trouble is hunting for that elusive, single, specific piece, since all the pieces are grouped indiscriminately in little baggies (note to self -- use a huge table and spread the pieces out). The thing is really cool looking, but don't expect your kid to be able to run around "flying" it -- it's too fragile. Altogether a very cool toy, though.

    My parents bought this toy for my 6 year old for Christmas.It took us 2-3 hours to build, mainly because Lego does not organize the pieces in any logical fashion.This toy is much different from the legos that I built as a kid, it has tons of specialized individual pieces, and is more like building a model than a traditional Lego toy.In fact, my son has a couple of these Star Wars lego toys and once we built them we put them up on the shelf in his room for display.

    Lego makes it easy for kids to put these together.The instructions are actually very nice.The age range is 9-up but my kid is 6 and he was able to read and understand the directions (I just sit and make sure that he puts the pieces together tightly).

    Once assembled, I wouldn't recommend playing with it as the Lego joints can't handle twisting force very well and some joints fall apart no matter how tightly you put them together.

    The only part of the model I found poor, was the entrance platform: no matter how tightly you secure the pieces, opening the door more than a couple times pulls the piston away from the connecting piece.Easily fixed, but this part of the design could have been better.

    4-0 out of 5 stars "You hear me, baby? Hold together!"
    Sigh... it's toys like this that make me wish I was born twenty years later than I was. Now don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the space-theme Lego sets I used to collect and play with when I was but a wee 'Norch. But these "Star Wars" Lego toys are a whole shelf above those old-school space sets of yesteryear. A good case in point is the Millennium Falcon, which I got for Christmas from an out-of-touch aunt who apparently still thinks I'm ten years old. Well, maybe she ain't so out-of-touch, 'cuz most of the people who know me would agree that I have the maturity of a ten-year-old, with a sense of humor to match...

    ...but I digress. Anyhoo, I was considerin' exchanging this thing at the local brick-&-mortar Toys 'R' Us for a few new plug-&-play TV Games consoles when I just said "the #ell with it". So I opened this bad-boy up, laid all the pieces out on the floor, and turned on my VCR. Then I broke out my widescreen Star Wars trilogy tapes (I'm talkin' `bout the ORIGINAL movies (available at www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/6303617700/qid=1104468809/sr=1-5/ref=sr_1_5/104-0488135-0118334?v=glance&s=video ), NOT those silly "Special Edition" versions where Greedo shoots first), popped "A New Hope" into the player, cracked open the building instructions, and went to town while the movie played.

    I finished up the whole schmear `round the time the Millenium Falcon was blastin' outta the Rebel hangar on Hoth in "Empire". Which was kinda fittin', `cuz the last thing I put together was the snowtrooper cannon, which had a pretty good resemblance to the one that was firin' at the Falcon in the scene. But the little trooper is nothin' compared to the main event, which is both a neat display model AND a cool playset for the Han Solo, Leia, C-3PO, and Chewie mini-figures it comes with. The ship opens up in a neat manner: the top hull panels open outward (sorta like a reverse aperture/bloomin' sunflower sorta deal) to reveal the interior, which includes an engine room (complete with tools ), the game-board room, gang plank, and a little stowaway space at the bow which holds a container box with some sorta scope-looking thing in it. And no, I have no clue what its purpose is, save for makin' me wonder what the heck its purpose is. Oh yes, there's also the hood-holder peg (don't ask).

    Also making up the interior is the upper gun pod to help your gallant heroes pick off those pesky TIE fighters after makin' the big break from the Death Star. And let us not forget the rather cramped cockpit, which isn't quite as roomy as the "real" one was. Come to think of it, the entire Lego ship isn't quite as roomy as its cinematic counterpart. But at least it's more to scale with its figures than the Hasbro Millennium Falcon action figure playset is to its dollies...

    This little booger (well, actually his thing's about a foot-and-a-half long fully assembled, which is pretty big for a Lego toy) also has a few neat features like a drop-down gangplank and escape pod. Unfortunately, the part of the gangplank pull-switch (AKA that knob-lookin' thing on the right-- er, starboard side of the vessel behind the cockpit) that connects to the plank itself often pops loose, which can be pretty frustrating when yer tryin' to re-enact the scene where the stormtroopers are searchin' the ship on the Death Star. Which leads to my big gripe about Legos: they don't stick together quite as snugly as Mega Bloks and Best-Lock blocks do. Its seems like no matter how carefully I move this thing about, there's always a piece or two that doesn't wanna hang onto the rest of the ship during the trip. Kinda makes ya see the irony in that Han Solo line "You hear me, baby? Hold together!" doesn't it? Eh, maybe not...

    On the upside, it is kinda cool how this blows apart into a zillion pieces when I collide it into the TIE Bomber Lego ship I got from auntie last year, and then try to reassemble `em using my burgeoning "force" powers! Sadly, the whole "reassembling-the-Legos-using-the-force" thing hasn't been workin' out for me lately. Guess I gotta work on gettin' my midi-chlorian levels up to par, hmm?

    5-0 out of 5 stars My 9 year old son LOVES these toys!!!
    I ran into Toys R Us on Christmas Eve last year to find another toy for my son (I wanted him to have a certain amount) and saw these on an end display. I bought a box, wrapped it, and put it under the tree.
    He absolutely LOVED playing with these. So did his siblings. They spent hours and hours for weeks making all kinds of cool concoctions. We have since added several more sets to our family.
    I came here today to buy a set for a birthday this weekend for a 13 year old family friend who still enjoys building things.
    Great toy!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars magnetix is roseart!
    100 pieces is a perfect way to build stuff but mixed with the magnetix magnetic building set 70 pieces It's a extreme perfect way to build stuff!When i opened the magnetix magnetic building set(70 pieces) i was shocked.When i opened the magnetix x-treme combo carying case (100 pieces)i was shocked even more!
    With the magnetix i can build a sword a boat a 3d triangle a 3d dimond a 3d sqrare a house a dinosar a crazy design a trap and a big playset. If we didn't have roseart we wouldn't be creative!So be smart think roseart and buy magnetix today.

    I must say, if your a gundam enthusiast, you have to get this model.This Skill Level 7 was my first and it took me about 3 hours.One completed I was very pleased with how it turned out. So many parts of articulation and the oerall durability was excellent.Though I wouldn't recommend playing with this, it is a model.Overall I gave it a five.

    3-0 out of 5 stars The least favored Master Grade kit...
    You might like it or hate it. I don't really know. I have one and I am not quite sure about it. The detail of the kit is rather mush compared to other 1/100th scale Master Grade Gundam kits from Bandai. You really need to paint (preferably with an airbrush) it to make it look cooler. And, no. It's a model kit not a toy. It's so fragile that you don't want to play with it.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected.
    I have a 19 month girl and purchased this toy for her 1st birthday. She loves to push things around. However, this toy does not steer, so she won't push it. And it is too wide for her to really scoot around on. She has way more fun with the $8.00 stroller I bought for her baby doll. I would not purchase this toy again.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Multi-friendly
    These parents of twins are happy with the hippo as a first birthday gift.Even though they were 11 weeks early (which makes them about 9 1/2 months size), they are trying to walk.The hippo does not get ahead of them while pushing in the walker set up.Other walkers we tried at friends' homes would roll too fast and they would fall forward.The gobble action works on carpet or hard floors.The wheels work well enough on carpet for my daughter to continue pushing when my son crawls on top.Any toy that can stand up to these two day after day is a good buy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars "IPPAUW" works WONDERS
    ** This gobble n' go hippo or my sons way of saying it, "IPPAUW" (This is Pronounced IP and then Ow (like what you say when you get hurt ;) )...is their favorite new toy. Our sons are just starting to stand up (8 months old) and they LOVE peek-a-blocks (we have the wagon, giraffe, hippo, dumptruck, circus set, incrediblock, and shape sorter! they LOVE them ALL). But this hippo is one of their (and my) favorites!
    ** They squeal when ever they play with it. But I dont really recomend it for wobbly babies, mine are but I have a little technique. My twins seemed very fustrated that they couldnt run and walk like every one else. So they hold onto the couch and then sort of push it alon (with me holding their waist) I think with this help that they are really improving.
    ** They even love to watch "IPPAUW" gobble the blocks, which I have to say he does surprizingly well, maybe I just got lucky with a good one! I also like that the inside of his mouth is very soft so I dont have to worry about curious hands getting "gobbled" and then hurt.
    ** What I really love about this is that its stable, (although it doesnt turn too well), yet as another reviewer said, having swivel wheels may just make it harder for a new walker to start taking those first steps. It will be a great and fun way for my babies to learn to walk. I can see no way that this toy could be harmful, it moves well on our carpet, and it doesnt move too fast on tile for a shakey toddler. Its a very stable ride-on too, but I would NOT suggest you ride it outside
    ** Even my 3 year olds LOVE "Mr. Hippo". They love to ride him all over the house because "Mr. Hippo" is one of the few riding toys allowed in the house. My 3 year olds also think its a lawnmower ever since they saw one at a friends house, and since we only have one shopping cart they use it for that too, and, its so great to see their little imaginations at work, they pretend that they are taking their pet hippo on a walk!All the neighborhood kids LOVE him, even my twins daycare cot one!
    ** This hippo also gobbles more than peek-a-blocks wich all my kids think is even MORE hilarious, he gobbles other blocks, balls, and whatevers in its path, my 3 year olds say that his tummy is always very full!
    ** Since we have DOZENS, and I mean dozens, of peek-a-blocks, its a great place to store them other than the toychest (where they always end up on the bottom).
    ** But what really surprized me was that this hippo excited my sons so much that after hearing us reapeat the word "hippo" over and over again, they said "IPPAUW"!. I was SO excited, (even though they still didnt say "mommy" lol). This is an amazing acomplishment being that they could only say daddy, yummy, and "nehmo" (elmo).
    ** Its great to see all 4 of my kids enjoying a toy, and I know this will be a key factor in walking because my friends 13 month old gave it a 'spin' and whenever she ended up in a corner, wall, or piece of furniture, she would just stand there and look at us and say " uh-oh"... so cute. (she couldnt walk alone yet)
    ** Bravo for the Gobble n' Go Hippo for teaching cause and effect, walking (eventually), riding and SPEACH!

    Lego has done it again; giving us another awesome addition to their Star Wars collection, this time with this two-piece Revenge of the Sith set. You construct both the Jedi Starfighter that Anakin Skywalker (figure included) pilots in combat, as well as the Vulture Droid of the Separatist arsenal. Both of these models stand alone as finely detailed Lego units equipped with some of the best decals you’ll find. The instructions take you step by step through the simple assembly of both vehicles so there is no difficulty in achieving results. Have fun outfitting the models following the step-by-step directions or go off on your own to create unique Star Wars ships. This is a Lego product so you’ll want to be aware of the numerous small pieces that aren’t suited for young children (recommended 7+ years of age). There’s fun to be had with this toy for Star Wars collectors or Lego fans alike! --Chip Quinn ... Read more

    This neon green and grape roller coaster is impressive in both size andscope. When fully built the coaster stretches 6 feet long and stands 3 feethigh. The directions are detailed and clear, and we had no trouble putting ittogether. It did take us a bit over five hours, though, and it's likely that anychild under 12 will need parental assistance. But assembling it is half the fun.When finished, the track careens so hazardously, it's hard to believe the carswill stay on, but they do! The plastic chain hauls the three cars up slowly,just like a real roller coaster, and the sound effects box re-creates the noiseso perfectly you'll squirm with anticipation. After reaching the top and passingthrough the serpent's mouth, the cars begin their dizzying descent past thesound effects box, which has now switched to emitting enthusiastic and terrifiedscreaming. Gravity and centrifugal force whip the little cars along the rest ofthe track until at last it reaches the beginning of the ride, only to be towedup for another round. If you don't have 6 feet of space, there are instructionsfor a smaller version, and you can turn the sound effects off if you prefer toplay quietly. Entirely worth the time and effort, this is ideal as a familyendeavor. --M. Sullivan ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT BUILDING
    Mon son got this for christmas and when I first saw it I thought "Oh no." But then once we opened it up and actually started to build it, WOW! I am always amazed by k'nex and how they make it work, it was a lot of fun to build, took about 5-6 hours ( We are not experts yet on the k'nex) but well worth the effort. It has withstood being moved from room to room, having the dog topple it over and being jumped on by the friends who have played with it. It comes with the option of a small or large track (we went for the large) and the instructions are easy to follow. My kids, 8 and 5, have not grown tired of it yet. Definitely a better buy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent motivator and great fun
    As a child I used to play with K'nex a lot. I just dug up an old model I built to hold my poker chips today that I'd made years ago, and I decided to look around for the biggest set I could find.

    As a college student now, I can see the value of playing with the K'nex set as a kid: creativity, problem-solving, even common sense about the laws of physics (big stuff that falls down tends to go boom, for example), all have been boosted thanks to this toy, I think. It's no wonder I'm able to learn new techniques and ideas so quickly now (as opposed to some of my friends).

    All you have to do is show your child how to connect the pieces in different ways, plop a models book in front of them, and let them have at it with your encouragement. Just don't let them put anything in their mouth: some of the pieces are less than an inch long.

    5-0 out of 5 stars What a GREAT simple toy
    I bought a 22 piece set of these for my 5 1/2 yr old daughter. She played with those 22 pieces for over an hour just ditting there.

    I can't say enough...they are easy to clean up since they are magnetic. The only things I'd say as a caution are that the metal balls hurt if they stray away and you step on them so keep it contained.

    Let's face it: Lego is the standard by which so many toys these days are measured--and fall short. In a world where creativity seems to be going out the window, replaced by step-by-step instructions for proper construction of toys with pre-determined stories, Legos are basically stackable blank slates. This particular bucket o' blocks features 1,000 small elementary pieces. A pamphlet with 13 instructions (and 28 ideas) is included, inspiring young builders to create anything from clowns to dinosaurs, but most children will probably do their own thing anyway…flying tractors, anyone? Parents and kids will love the big, sturdy blue storage tub with space enough to hold far more than 1,000 Legos. A true classic. --Emilie Coulter ... Read more

    I bought this for our four year old, and he really enjoys playing with them.I like this generic collection of mult-purpose bricks better than the sets that are designed to build one unique item.For the price, you really get a lot of stuff.On the down side, there are a lot of the smaller bricks (1 x 2 and 1 x 1), but it is still a good value.After playing with this for a few days I found that my son wanted more plates, bricks (2 x 4 and 2 X 8), and wheels (my son loves to make cars).I went to lego dot com where I was able to buy more of these specific things.

    In summary, buy this set first from Amazon and then go to lego dot com to buy additional wheels, bricks and plates. ... Read more

    Little ones with a knack for building and creative play will be drawn tothese lightweight and durable cardboard building blocks. A staple item in many preschools, this set can spark endless imaginative play as children buildlarge, life-size structures. Builders practice mathematical skills as they addthe number of blocks stacked on top of each other, and the various-sized blockscan facilitate a conceptual understanding of fractions. When kids aredevelopmentally ready, parents can encourage them to discover that one large redblock is the same size as two medium yellow blocks or four small blue blocks.Made from 50 percent recycled cardboard, the blocks have a smooth, water-resistant coating that's easy to clean. These blocks won a Parents' ChoiceClassic Award and a Dr. Toy Classic Award. One word of caution: Make surethere's enough storage space to hold all 40 blocks once assembled. --LaurenBernard, mother and elementary school teacher ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Large blocks are best
    These are great, durable, fun cardboard blocks for your kids to build structures they can play in (for example, mine like to build walls under tables to make a fort or "rabbit hole" while they pretend they are rabbits, or they build towers around each other which they then love to crash down on their heads.)I like them because they are a nice physical toy that encourages the imagination.They are strong enough for kids to stand on (although I don't encourage it because they will weaken over time) and light enough that they aren't hurt if the blocks fall on them.And kids learn some spatial, balance, and construction concepts as well. Warning: assembly required, and you should take care when assembling to make sure you get them right (don't bend the cardboard in the wrong place or you will weaken them).Also,the best blocks are the larger red ones.The yellow ones are much harder to build with (no stability for height) and the blue (brick-sized) ones are nearly useless.I'm buying more of the red only, and I expect I will actually throw out the blue and yellow ones since they take up storage room but are pretty much useless.These blocks are expensive if you are going to buy enough of them. I recommend that your kids will need at least 30 red ones to really build things that they can play in (even building in an open-space brick-saving fashion)... and that gets costly.They can be stacked awayin a 2x3x4 area... it's helpful to cordon off a section of your room or have a big storage box that helps your kids figure out how to put them away.5 stars for fun and child development, but I only gave 4 stars due to the expense and useless smaller blocks included.

    My son just got this for Christmas, and he has been playing with it nonstop all day. He turns 6 next month, and has already asked for another set for his birthday. If you have a young builder in your family, this will be a sure hit. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars FU-U-UN!!!!!
    This prehistoric Lego set is the best I've built. My 5 year-old brother and I make up adventurous games with this spectacular, amazing Lego set. You can make 10 whole prehistoric creatures in this set including a T-Rex, Triceritops, Alligator, Dragonfly, and more. There were no probloms buiding it. Buy this set and you'll be entertained for hours at a time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Set!Great Models!
    My son just turned 6 and has been slowly warming up to the joys of LEGOs.I bought him this set because he needs step-by-step directions to build things...he finds it hard to create things on his own.The directions were mostly easy for him to follow once I taught him to look for the visual "clues" in each step.He loved the different dinosaur models.We haven't had any problems with them standing...they look fantastic!I'm just so happy that he's FINALLY enjoying LEGOs!I was starting to wonder what was "wrong" with him!!!I learned he needs instructions with steps, and this was perfect for him.

    Now my 4 year old daughter can create things on her own, and with this set she looked at the pictures and then designed her own models.So it works for either type of kid.Great set.I plan on getting the other sets similar to this one.To the fine folks at LEGO, I thank you! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    The Castle of Morcia was a nice enough place when it was presided over by a kind and benevolent king but it just hasnt been the same since Vladek, the evil scorpion emblazoned villain of LEGOs medieval storyline, took over the place. Now its up to the assortment of good knights to recapture the castle. This set of building bricks from LEGO features numerous tunnels, secret passages, and traps. Also included are small figures of the King of Morcia and all five knights. Of course since this is a LEGO set, the pieces are infinitely interchangeable, so long after youve followed the prescribed illustrated step-by-step plan to construct the castle, youre free to imagine and build an infinite variety of new configurations. --Charlie Williams ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Minifigures in Shining Armor, Rejoice!
    To all those Lego Castle-series afficianados out there - who aren't six years old :) - Lego has been savvy enough to bring back the old yellow minifigures-in-shining armor. The Castle Morcia is the creme-de-la-creme of all the available sets. Not only do you get a mildly ingenious, modular castle that can switch alliegences on the fly, but you get seven unique minifigures to populate it (not to mention scorpions, a frog, a day-glo spider and a skeleton!). From the ostensibly good King Mathias and his multi-colored Round Table (each of his four knights not only has a name, but a unique face and personalized sword, shield and facemask!) to the evil Morgoth - Melkor - Vladek, yes, that's it, each minifigure is armed to the teeth and looks the part, enough to intimidate any other medieval Lego minifigures you might have laying around. The set even includes a freaky-looking robotic scorpion/catapult! How can you resist the allure? You cannot, lego-maniac.
    If you're a kid at heart, and there's an $80 void in your life that could be filled by little plastic knights in shiny armor and their awesome castle, the Castle Morcia will do it in spades. Or, if you actually have a kid and want to see him doing something non-video game related, the ever-useful trait of building can be fostered with this set. Whatever your age group, enjoy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Lego toy and Great Theme!
    I bought this for my 6 year old son.He has been able to put this together on his own and he enjoys it.It's the only toy he will abandon his game cube for to sit and play with.The theme is fun for this age since it focuses on knights, sword-fighting, etc.And since there's additional components and kingdom sets we can puchase, he will become more imaginative.
    I'm very pleased with this lego set and would highly recommend it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great lego set
    My 6 yr old son rec'd this as a gift, and he and my husband put it together over a couple of days.Although it isn't as big as I expected, my son and my 8 yr old daughter play with it for hours on end.His greatest wish is to now have the remaining sets in the Knight's Kingdom group.They even choose to play with this over the Gamecube!Lots of figures make this a great toy.Definitely recommended! ...
