For parents of young children, everyday wins are an important part of the journey!!! From walking, talking, tying shoes to preparing for kindergarten, there is always something for us to be happy about, especially on those days we feel the parenting world is against us. One small win can change the vibe of an entire day!
We always joke that my daughter Haylie will grow up to be an engineer or architect! From puzzles, numbers, letter patterns, to building things, those are the activities my daughter chooses to do for fun! She definitely doesn't get this from her mama because I'm sure this post alone will be filled with typos ;-) She is definitely my little smarty pants and her everyday wins sure make me proud!!!
I had Haylie a few years after most of my friends had kids, so Haylie is always the "baby" of the bunch & the only girl! Younger children are fascinated with almost everything older kids play with, including LEGO® sets. All of my besties have sons obsessed with building all things LEGO® so it was kind of a given she would fall in love with these sets since she just has to do everything they do! LEGO sets are better than all the Dino's and trucks she was playing with before, so if LEGO toys is what she wants, then that's what she will get & it makes this mama very happy. Just look at how cute these sets are ;-)
Unfortunately the big sets are a little too complex for the younger ones so LEGO Juniors is the perfect way to set youngsters (aged 4-7) up for “success,” and grow their independence & confidence; the products are perfectly matched to the building skills of their age & stage.
Every parent loves to see that first “ah ha” moment in which their child learns and discovers something that builds her confidence and independence. Here are some of the key LEGO Juniors features developed for building success:
One of the LEGO sets Haylie was sent was the LEGO Juniors Family House Set !! Perfect for her since she loves playing "house" with little figurines & she also got to use her smarty pants talent of building things! Each bag was labeled and a provided and totally awesome booklet with picture color, illustration directions made building an easy task for my child with a LEGO set type of brain!
In parenting it’s not the huge milestones (like being 100% potty trained or climbing & buckling themselves up in the booster seat) that solely build confidence and self-worth. It’s the everyday wins that help build the foundation for the never-give-up-spirit that murmurs over and over again ” I can do it”.
I just couldn't stop staring at Haylie & her sweet "I Can Do It!!!" face while the house was constructed with the ideal synergy of age-appropriate challenges and creative play. And if your kiddo is anything like mine, they’ll be pretty excited with this set’s inclusion of a swimming pool!!! There might be snow on the ground here in WNY, but Haylie's LEGO set people had one heck of a pool party that afternoon!

This is actually a perfect gift for my niece! Thank you for the gift ideas! (Also, adorable pictures!)
12/15/2016 08:38:12 am
How much fun! I love how cute they are and encourage girls to use their minds!
12/15/2016 11:34:59 am
This a about 20 years too late for my son but I do corporate team building. Sometimes, companies are looking for toys to build and give to charity. I will add these to my list.
12/15/2016 11:36:09 am
Lego has changed a lot since when I was a kid, but it still looks just as much fun.
12/15/2016 02:53:24 pm
How fun! My kids have always enjoyed playing with Legos! I like those easy to build sets.
12/15/2016 03:37:38 pm
We just got some lego juniors for a holiday gift for friends kids. I loved legos growing up so I love this!
12/15/2016 06:04:54 pm
I love that! LEGOs are such great creative toys for kids, and these junior sets are a great way to introduce the kids to them.
12/15/2016 06:07:20 pm
I think LEGO Juniors is a great idea. It introduces the kids to LEGOs without the frustration of a kit that's too advanced for them.
12/17/2016 09:44:27 am
That is exactly how I feel. It's a great introduction to building with blocks and to using their ideas and imaginations to make their structures come to life.
12/15/2016 08:13:29 pm
We say the same thing about my daughter. She's destined to be an architect. She loves designing with LEGOs and other blocks.

I couldnt count anymore how many lego's my kid got now. It's fun to play with them, it helps to develop their brain by just letting them with lego. This is an awesome article for a lego lover like me :) thanks for sharing thus post

This looks like so much fun. Also, the tutu is too cute.
12/15/2016 10:01:23 pm
Lego Juniors looks so fun. We have some young nephews and nieces that are a great age for these.
12/15/2016 10:05:46 pm
Legos have come so far over the years! These are such fun Playsets... Looks like the kiddos love them!
12/15/2016 10:53:53 pm
These look like such great gifts for younger kids. My son is a huge LEGO fan so we love LEGOs in our home.
12/15/2016 11:50:31 pm
What a cute Lego set. I might just start building with my boys if I had these
12/16/2016 12:30:39 am
LEGO Juniors looks like the perfect bridge (pun intended) between Duplex and LEGOs. Such a great way to foster creativity and learning while being age appropriate and safe.
12/16/2016 12:32:23 am
That's a cute set. I have known a couple of children who struggled with the building because there were no traditional instructions, this would be good for kids like that.
12/16/2016 12:41:13 am
My kids love the Lego Junior collection! This is such a cute one, I know my daughter would love to have this!
12/16/2016 12:50:22 am
What cute sets! I admit I would play with them myself! I bet they still hurt when you step on them lol but really - they are great for kids to learn with.
12/16/2016 01:10:40 am
Lego Juniors were totally genius, I have younger kids as well as older ones and the little ones what to do Legos with their brothers and so these are perfect!
12/16/2016 01:18:31 am
Legos are very good toys! They really make a child more creative by trying to build houses, helicopters, trucks. they're one of my favorite gifts to my nephews.
12/16/2016 03:10:23 am
Lego was my favorite toy when I was a kid and that was a long time ago and still it was our kids number one educational toy now. Building blocks boost our child's motor skills, language skills, and divergent problem solving.
12/16/2016 04:12:43 am
i have always loved legos. my brother and i used to play all the time when growing up
12/16/2016 06:14:26 am
We have sooo many Legos at home. The girls really have a lot of fun with them.
12/16/2016 09:04:46 am
The LEGO Juniors Family House Set is an awesome gift idea for any kid. I know my kids both loved Legos and played with them for hours. This set I will have to share with my niece for her kids. Thanks for sharing the review.
12/16/2016 09:54:59 am
I had no idea they made this. I have a four year old daughter that I have wanted to buy regular Legos for, but since they make this, I'm going to have to get it for her.
12/16/2016 10:23:37 am
This is a fun post! Legos are great for everyone. My best friend is 30 something and I still send him Legos as gifts. He's obsessed! These Lego Juniors will be perfect for the kiddos in my life!
12/16/2016 10:50:33 am
It's so important to celebrate wins, especially with our children. It's great to use activities like Lego sets to encourage our kids to accomplish something.
12/16/2016 10:55:30 am
Those legos are so cool for kids! I want them for my son.
12/16/2016 11:36:29 am
My family love lego! We got a huge lego set for our son this Christmas. I know his going to have a thrill time building it.
12/16/2016 12:26:59 pm
Is this the new Barbie house nowadays? Really a creativity booster!
12/16/2016 01:36:25 pm
Haylie is such a pretty kid. So great to see she loves a guy toy; makes her explore their world.
12/16/2016 01:41:19 pm
Lego Juniors is a great gift idea. The kids always love to be creative with Lego.
12/16/2016 01:44:56 pm
Legos are so much more than fun things to stack, they really do help your kids explore their imagination while also working on building their tactile skills.
12/16/2016 02:06:57 pm
I love that they are making lego sets for girls. My daughter loved playing legos with her brother.
12/16/2016 03:49:38 pm
We all love Legos because it is fun and now have smaller version also. Complete fun with great brain exercises.
12/16/2016 03:54:57 pm
This would be great for my girls. They love Legos! I use to play with them all the time when I was little too.
12/16/2016 04:35:49 pm
My daughter is a huge fan of Lego sets and she will get a new set for this Christmas too! I really like that Lego Junior brings some premade pieces - it will keep the frustration away.
12/16/2016 06:04:59 pm
How can a kid resist a set of LEGOS?! I love how they are always updating their styles to keep it fun and modern, thanks for the share!
12/16/2016 08:36:37 pm
This is awesome! My daughter would have loved these when she was younger!
12/17/2016 12:30:05 am
LEGO Juniors look like a fun kit. They would make a great Christmas gift!
12/17/2016 07:47:15 am
I really like that these are easy to do. Some of these building kits are really complicated and not really suitable for younger children.
12/17/2016 08:44:44 am
What a perfect gift for my grand kids. They love sets like these and I'm glad to see they have junior LEGOS too.
12/17/2016 03:36:00 pm
I LOVE how cute and girly these are! These sound like so much fun and I think my niece would love them! Your daughter is too cute!
12/17/2016 08:36:52 pm
We were just deciding if it's time to move our toddlers up to the "big leagues" with legos instead of big blocks. Think we're gonna hold off one more year.
12/18/2016 11:47:36 am
It is great that she is so smart, Lego juniors looks perfect for her. Love that it is easy to build too!
12/18/2016 10:36:54 pm
LEGOs have been around for so long. They provide lots of fun for all kids. Good to see that they have stood the test of time and continue to do so.
12/18/2016 10:40:40 pm
Legos are awesome. I think they are a toy that is never going to go out of style!
12/19/2016 10:11:19 am
This definitely looks perfect for those kids that love Legos but are not quite ready for the bigger sets. I love that they have girl styles, too.
12/19/2016 10:13:46 am
We buy Lego's and I love them as a kids. Haven't tried LEGO Juniors though. Are they smaller than Duplo's but bigger than regular ones?
12/20/2016 05:00:04 pm
I love watching kids figure out puzzles and build things right in front of our eyes. It's so inspiring and exciting watching them. I don't have kids myself, but I have a lot of younger cousins and watching them makes me proud. I do think it's important to celebrate those every day small wins, because they're a part of the larger wins and the bigger picture with kiddos! xx <a href="http://www.adaatude.com/">Adaleta Avdic</a>
