“ Theme: Bionicle „
Yet again our children have been spoilt for christmas by us and others. Both of my boys have asked for lego lego lego. So while we were out shopping for christmas we saw these figures that are made by lego called Bionicle. My step son had mentioned these on several occasions so we decided to get one big one which was under £10 and a small one which was £5. We also told the grandparents to pick one up of each for him too.
He was over the moon about this presant when he opened it because he had been asking for them for months and had not been bought any so this was a very good presant from us. The one that he made first was Matoran Tanma which is green and silver. This was slightly strange sort of lego. That it all clips together by little balls and hoops rarther than the traditional lego.
The instructions were simple to follow and the pieces were very easy to put together my stepson who is 6 managed to do this all on his own and my son of 5 did very well only asking for the silghtest instruction. These come in an oval box with the picture of the bionicle on the front which reminds me slightly of transformers, they also have the colour of the bionicle on the lid and base. From what my step son has told us the lager of the boxes are legends and the smaller are not. We are still not sure what the difference is between them but aparently the bigger ones are the best.
This is an easy toy for ages 5 and above adult help may be needed in some curcumstances and will get children used to reading instructions and help with concentration. I found that these are very cheap to buy as little presants for the children and that they are great to be taken apart and re make. You can purchase these from many toy stores, we purchased ours from toys r us and will honestly say it is one of the best purchases we have ever had when it has come to christmas and pleasing our children.
