The LEGO Ideas Book: Unlock Your Imagination

By 10/17/2011 04:15:00 PM

As a mom of a little boy I'm VERY familiar with the LEGO's brand. Like most families, I've wondered what to do with all those LEGO pieces we keep collecting. I recently learned about The LEGO Ideas Book and think it has some great solutions.

The LEGO Ideas Book (Hardcover)
Author: Daniel Lipkowitz
Price: $24.99
Age: 7 - 15 years

The LEGO Ideas Book is packed full of tips from expert LEGO builders on how to make jet planes reach new heights, create fantastic fortresses, swing through lush jungles, have fun on the farm, and send space shuttles out of this world!

The book is divided into six themed chapters:

  • VEHICLES of all shapes and sizes
  • BUILDINGS, from houses and farms to furniture and bridges
  • SPACE, with attack ships, moon buggies, and aliens
  • CASTLES to defend or invade
  • FANTASY, including pirate ships, robots, and jungle temples
  • PRACTICAL MAKES, from picture frames to treasure chests

Each section will have basic templates of key models (for instance, car or castle) and following spreads will show how to vary the models and adapt your own (for instance, adapting a car into a racing car or adding a drawbridge to a castle).

There will also be feature spreads focusing on Master Builders, who will share their top tips. The book includes all-new models and ideas and all-new artwork/photography.
