Review: A few years ago we enrolled my son in the Lego MBA program. Every other month he’d receive a Lego kit, along with a book that aimed to help kids find innovative and creative uses for pieces, and then would use the kit to illustrate their point. It was wonderful. My son loved Legos, but this gave him license to create, not just duplicate. It also familiarized him with the pieces and what they could become. As we’ve gone through Tiny Lego Wonders, I’ve watched both my boys experience that same sense of wonder.
These instructions are extremely easy to follow. Every piece you need for any of your chosen miniscale model is clearly listed at the beginning of the instruction sheet. And if you’ve ever built a Lego set, you’ll have no problem with these instructions — they could have been created by Lego, they’re so easy to follow!
What is more fun than easy instructions are the variety of figures you can create. My boys were thrilled, and for quite a while, this has been one of my son’s favorite books. My shelves are covered with Lego miniscales. Hearing my son’s excitement at discovering and completing these make the displays all worth it.
