For many years, Lego has been a welcome form of play and brought lots of joy for many children across the globe.  
I still remember when I was a little girl and spending countless hours intricately creating my own little structures, whether alone or with a friend, and feeling a sense of accomplishment, admiring my masterpiece.
Now as a mom, I just love watching my children build their blocks of creativity.
Many times my husband and I find ourselves slouched across the floor, lego scattered about, heavily focused on constructing with our children (sometimes even without them!).  It’s one of those toys you can never grow out of.

What pleases me about Lego is what it’s doing for my children that exceeds play.  Using Legos, children develop their ability to visualize, plan and complete.  It is even possible for kids to easily grasp the concepts of fractions and dividing numbers just by simply playing with Legos. And they do not even notice that they are actually studying something.  Playing lego could help our children develop or discover their hidden talent in engineering — the more they pay attention to the details, the more intricate their designs will be.  We just may be molding future architects and engineers!  How great is that?

This is why I encourage this play-based learning and why I really love the brand in a whole.  I was really excited to learn that LEGO came out with LEGO Friends themed products based around a group of multicultural girl friends.  My daughter absolutely LOVES them!

Another favourite of my children’s is a line of construction toys created by Lego, originally a sub-theme of Lego’s Technic series, Bionicle.  My husband started collecting these many years back and still has them stored safely and fully constructed.
