How it works
The Lego Classic Creative Brick Box is a building set that allows your child to be as creative as possible with a LEGO brick set. The set comes with hundreds of pieces and an instruction manual that helps your child learn how to build several structures and expand their creative minds.
Like all classic LEGO sets, your child can build whatever they can see in their mind and they don’t necessarily have to follow the patterns or instructions that come with the set. With so many different structures to build and so many possibilities to create and expand the mind, the LEGO Classic Large Creative Brick Box is a great toy for your child to have no matter what their age.
When you unbox the set, there will be several bags for you to open. They are all small plastic bags that hold the pieces according to their color scheme. There are over thirty-three different colors of bricks that come with the LEGO Large Creative Brick Box. The pieces are separated in a way so that all the blues are in one bag and the yellows in another etc. There are also smaller bags that hold some of the special pieces that come with the set.
In these smaller bags, you will find the unique pieces that are for building specific items like scooters, and houses, and people as the pieces will be tires, rims, windows, doors, and funny, cartoonish eyes. The pieces can all be used as your child wishes for whatever fun ideas they come up with.
The other safety concern with the LEGO Creative Brick Box is the small plastic bags that come with the set when you unbox it. Those small bags also pose a choking hazard or a breathing hazard if your child places the bags over their nose and mouth. When unpacking the set, it is best to keep all the plastic bags out of the reach of your child so that they won’t run the risk of hurting themselves or putting themselves in a position where they could potentially be in harm’s way, and as with all LEGO sets, always be careful where you are walking because stepping on a LEGO brick can be painful.
Children who are early toddlers will most likely throw the pieces as they won’t know what to do with them. Four-years-old seems to be the age where your child will be able to understand how to work the LEGOs and use them to create and be creative as they think up of new and different things to build.
This advantage also boosts self-confidence and the confidence children need to excel in their education. Being creative also allows children to express themselves and their emotions in a healthy way. Being artistic gives children the outlet they need to get their emotions out through role-playing, creating new worlds, and creating objects and toys that speak to how they are feeling at that moment.
It’s a healthier way to deal with emotions and feelings than not talking at all. Sometimes role-playing allows children to say what they have been feeling without feeling vulnerable. All of this positive reinforcement and comfortable space give children what they need to feel safe and heard.
Younger children will learn to balance themselves and use their upper bodies to pick things up and move them around while older children will be able to use their hand/eye coordination to see the object in their mind and then take the physical action necessary to take what is in their mind and put it all together in the real world.
This particular LEGO set requires that certain blocks be used in a certain way in order to build what your child needs to build, and when more than one child come together to make that happen your child will also know what it feels like to be a part of a team and what it feels like to use teamwork to reach a common goal that everyone is striving to meet. This is the same feeling as being on a sports team. The idea of teamwork is one aspect of growing and developing that makes socializing easier for kids as they start to learn social skills and social cues.
If your child wants to share their LEGOs with other kids or if your child wants to bring their LEGOs to wherever you are going in order to build and play with other kids, it is easy to do so with the Brick Box. Just put the box in the car or take it with you on the go and your child can play with their LEGOs virtually anywhere. It is a great way to keep your child socially engaged no matter where they are.
Many parents when they open the box expect to find over 700 normal LEGO pieces, but that’s not what this set is meant to contain. The odd pieces help bring structures to a point or help connect structures or helpfully complete a car, scooter, dump truck, or animal. If parents want to add their own traditional LEGO pieces that is a viable option because all the pieces are compatible with any and all LEGO pieces and sets. Online, a parent can even buy a supplemental set of pieces to add to whatever set they own.
For the parent or grandparent who wants to buy this for their child or grandchild, the price seems about right considering you get over 700 LEGO pieces plus the unique pieces that were made specifically for this particular set. Again, the price may be more on the expensive side for some parents, but the price is not inflated either.
Having LEGOs in your child’s toy collection is a great way for them to take a classic toy with no frills and use it to better their minds and better themselves as they express themselves through art and creativity. With so many perks and positive aspects to owning the set, the LEGO Classic Large Creative Brick Box is a must-have for the parent who wants a toy that allows their child to expand their minds and learn better.
