What did your child build today?

Recommended Posts

I managed to get in on a sale for the Lego Technic Bucket Wheel Excavator. My 6 year old has been building the dump truck using this build guide:

Bucket Wheel Excavator build guide.

He has almost finished the dump truck by himself. I am wondering if I should hide the excavator bags until he is a bit older, or let him give it a whirl. Any advice from those with similar aged kids, or have been through it? I don't want to get him frusterated with the hobby as his Mom is worried.

My 4 year old son decided to do the alternate build for the Reindeer poly. This is Santa's Reindeer Plane.

He told me when he opened up the poly that he was going to build a plane instead of the standard Reindeer. This was all him.

Go ahead and give him to build. My 6 years old build the truck by himself and about 70% of the excavator, the rest his mom build it. But for sure, he will loss his patience once in a while, just give him some encourage and it should be fine. By the way, my son spend a little bit over a month to build the whole thing. 

P.S. He read the instruction better than my wife, he can point out her mistake. ?

My five year old built it and the eight year old in me doesn't want to share it.  I really like it.  the build was ok. 17 stickers! We split up building the wheels.  that was a little repetitive for him.

My 4 year daughter saw me building the snow globe tonight and 5 minutes later walks over with her Donald snow globe.


My six year old decided Santa was hiding from Ms Clause after building ours.

OMG, so I was going through some old pictures and I found this gem from Christmas 2006. This is me, 8 year old Stud-Flipper with one of the first LEGO sets I ever got. It was early and I was very sleepy, and probably a little grumpy that I didn't get the batcave or joker copter.

8 year old you is from 2006?!?

Ugh. Meanwhile, 8 year old is from a few decades earlier.

My 4 year old's first Lego build all on his own. He now wants to help me on with my modulars and Star Wars sets! I swear I heard a glass braking in the kitchen and my wife groaning! 5052e873c91390281d35aa6cccea8c3f.jpg

My kids built these this morning.

The mini Batmobile looks so plain compared to the free one from TRU??/BN?? from a few weeks ago. :P
