Lego is a timeless classic of a toy. It shaped so many of our childhood playtimes and continues to be an integral part of it for children now. It's versatile as it can be played individually, with a sibling, or in a big group of friends and still be a barrel of laughs. There is an insane amount of lego to choose from, for all ranges and for whatever you're into, whether that be an easy-to-build train for toddlers or a technically challenging Star Wars space ship. Plus, lego is loved by every gender so shopping for it is a breeze! There's really something for everyone.
In an era where children are being drawn more and more to screens, whether it be iPads, YouTube, laptops or the TV, it's good to encourage them to take a break from the digital world and stay in touch with their own creativity. Researchers praise toys such as Lego for their capacity to expand children's imaginations which is a key part of their emotional development growing up!
