      Build 3 models from one kit contained in a handy plastic case

      At 6 years old one of my nephews has just discovered the joy of Lego so when he stayed with
      us recently due to his little brother being in hospital I ended up buying him 2 of the Lego creator
      packs which were on offer at the local supermarket at 2 for £7 to help cheer him up.

      We chose 2 packs a mini racer set and the mini fire rescue set each of the sets come in a plastic
      case with instructions for making 3 models and are suitable for 6-12 years old although I know at
      least one 35 year old who thinks that age range should be extended. The mini fire rescue set
      comes with 69 pieces and lets you build a fire truck, a helicopter and a 4x4 fire car although you
      can only build one model at a time.

      The instructions are clear and easy to follow with step by step pictures so even younger kids should
      be able to build the models with minimal help. Although some of the parts are small and a bit fiddly to
      fit Calum managed to build the three models by himself and spent the afternoon playing with each
      model for a while before moving on to building the next one. After building all the models he started joining bits together from the 2 mini sets to build bigger and stranger vehicles with a little help from
      my boyfriends son.

      The models are small at around 2.5 to 3 inches long but they have some nice details including clear
      blue and orange bricks which act as lights, clear tinted panels for windows, a ladder that rotates on
      top of the fire truck and moving blades on the helicopter. As always the best thing about any Lego
      set is the fact that the parts can be used to build something else and used with parts from other
      sets when the child gets bored of the original model so the possibilities are endless when matched
      with a kids imagination.

      One of the great things about these sets is they come in a plastic case rather than a box so it can
      be used to store the pieces together and it's also handy for the kids to take with them on holiday
      or to keep them amused when visiting relatives etc. Sadly the case isn't big enough to store the
      models without taking them apart slightly but it's still a lot better than a cardboard box that falls
      apart after a week.

      Calum loved these sets and has since added another couple to his collection. His mum thinks he
      actually prefers these little sets to the bigger ones they've bought him mainly due to the fact he
      can build them himself whereas some of the bigger sets are slightly too complicated for him to
      build without help from mum or dad. Calums only complaint about the mini Creator sets is they
      don't come with a Lego figure and I have to agree it would be nice if there was one figure
      included with the set.

      The Lego Mini Creator sets cost between £4 and £6 depending on where you shop and are
      available from most toy shops and many online retailers such as Amazon etc. For the price
      these are great sets and ideal for a low cost present or for Lego mad kids spending their
      pocket money.
