After School Fun With Lego Marvel Super Heroes.

Noah has been a big Lego fan since he was 3/4. 
My brother handed down his old box of Lego to him and it was instant love.

His room now boasts a mighty collection of Star Wars & Minecraft Lego and a array of mini builds.
He's even got a Lego Poke-ball which he made using a YouTube tutorial.

Also many other sets that have been long destroyed over the years are now in big lego heads waiting to be re-built.


Noah was sent some super cool Mighty Micros sets, which are now taking over his room.
The Mighty Micro sets come in a nice range of heroes
from Iron man to Wonder Woman.

I'm always trying to think of ways to get Noah away from his PS4 and to spend some time with me.
Lego is always the number one winner.

He will happily switch off the playstation and get stuck right into building.
I've always loved lego and will happily sit in his room having a build off.
Its a great way to spend some quality one on one time with him.



Noah took no time at all building his Mighty Micros.
They have an RRP of £8.99 which is pretty perfect if your looking for a birthday present for someone.
You get two mini figures & two vehicles in each sets.


Rupert even took a shine to the superman one and made my dad build it for him when he was up visiting.
I used to love sitting with my dad building Lego, so it was lovely to see him doing it with the boys.


Noah couldn't wait to dig into the Hulk lego set.
I dont blame him as it looked pretty epic.


We decided to make it a little more entertaining and have a race to see who could build their car the fastest.

Noah built the Green Hulk car and I built the Red.
We both finished around the half hour mark.

I love how when building the bigger sets, the bricks are nicely arranged into different bags, so you don't have to empty them all out over the table and risk losing the tiny important bits.


This Lego Marvel Super Heroes Hulk Vs Red Hulk set has an RRP of £49.99
The set comes complete with a She-Hulk and a Red She-Hulk mini figures, plus Hulk and Red Hulk big figures.


After the build we took them into the garden and had a little battle!
Who do you think won?!?!


Lego Marvel Super Heroes sets can be found in most Toy Shops.

Lego City // The Twins First Lego Sets

The twins have always been jealous of Noah's lego collection and desperate for their own.
So when I was sent some Lego City sets I knew they would be over the moon.


We were sent the Lego City Race plane (RRP £7.99)
Lego City Stunt Truck (RRP £7.99)
Lego City Sweeper &Excavator (RRP £24.99)


The twins each picked one of the little boxes and said they'd share the big box.

Alex took the Race Plane.
Get ready to put on an amazing show from the skies with the Lego City Race Plane, featuring a spinning propeller and opening cockpit.
includes mini figure.

Oscar opted for the Stunt Truck.
It's time to put on a daring show in the amazing stunt truck! Strap yourself into the cab and take off for your first trick!
Show off and make each jump higher than the last. This set features a truck with a big rear wing and big knobbly tyres, plus a mini figure.


We all sat at the kitchen table and the boys helped me build them.
I was the builder and they were my helpers by finding me the right bricks that I needed.
The instructions are great and even the boys could understand what was needed and how to do it.

They took it in turns to help and were very impressed with the final masterpiece.

Once we had completed the plane and truck we moved on to the Sweeper and Excavator.
Keep the Lego City streets clear for the traffic with the help of the city work crew and their Sweeper & Excavator, featuring a truck sweeper with spinning brushes, various work tools and detachable trailer, an excavator with movable arm and shovel bucket, rotating body and opening cage, a street sign, cones, brick wall elements and two mini figures.


When it came to building the bigger set, I tried to get them to get involved in the building part.
They were a little hesitant at first but once I showed them it was pretty easy and pretty impossible to go wrong if they listened and looked at the instructions, and even if they did put the wrong brick on, they could easily re do it.

They loved how the brushes on the sweeper actually spun around and that they could spin the exactor around and around.

It was lovely to see them so proud of something they had made.
They put it straight on display in their bedroom, just like Noah has his.


Lego City sets are just perfect for brand new Lego fans and it was one of the very first sets Noah was given.


It really is amazing what you can build from simple little bricks!

You can find Lego in all good toy stores!
