Lego City 7246 Mini Digger....
Another little piece of Lego that jack has had given to him for this birthday just gone. This piece of Lego is again recommended for ages 5 years and over which is a little off Jack's three years but he seems to be able to play with it well and did also help me put the little digger together.
I purchased this Lego item from Tesco's for under £5 which is around the price you can pick it up for off of the internet but I have also seen it for sale for a fair bit more than this too, so it is worth shopping around.
The Lego City Mini Digger was fairly easy to assemble as the item is relatively small in comparison to other items we have. Even with Jacks help (which usually slows us down somewhat) it took a mere 10 minutes and was very easy to do.
The instructions which are supplied with this Lego are, as all the Lego instructions are, very simple to follow and clearly laid out. This is of course so children can follow it easily but I still have to add how well it is done.
The little digger comes not only with a small builder Lego man donned with red hard hat and working clothes but there is also a small pick axe which can be carried around in the front digger. The front scoop of the digger does indeed move up and down in a realistic digging motion which of course makes for fun playing.
The Lego man can sit nicely in the seat of the Lego digger and can be taken on and off easily with out any of the digger parts falling off. The digger as a whole, does seem rather well made as the pieces fit together well and are sturdy when fully built.
I do feel that for the price, this little digger is a rather good addition to any collection and Jack does seem to like it rather a lot. Even though we haven't got any other Lego building pieces yet, the toy can be used alongside a whole host of other Lego City items to make up a "model village" as Jack keeps calling his collection of Lego.
I think a score of 5 out of 5 stars for this item is in order. It is affordable, fun and high quality.
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
The Lego Mini Digger is available for only £2.99 and at that price no little boy should be without one. You can get them from Amazon, toy shops or even some supermarkets.
In the little box you get all the pieces you need to build a little digger and an instruction booklet telling you how to build it too. There's also a little builder with a hard hat and drill. Everything comes in pieces in a plastic bag inside the box so you have to have the time and patience to put it all together.
The recommended age for this is 5yrs and over so my 4yr old grandson needed me to put the toy together for him. I think even at 5yrs old or even 6yrs old he'd have still struggled to follow the instructions though. Not because they're complex or badly laid out or anything just because the concept is quite hard to grasp when you're still learning your alphabet!
I had this toy put together in under five minutes following the picture instructions. I was then ready to hand it over to my grandson who'd watched on with interest. He thought it was a great little addition to his Lego sets and loved driving it along the road plates he's already got. He liked the way he could pretend to drill with the little Lego man too and had good fun making all the sound effects.
An excellent addition to Lego play sets or a nice little toy on it's own for youngsters who are new to Lego I think.
