The other day I was going through some old photos and noticed a few special moments from my daughter’s childhood. She once had this bright idea to stack all her LEGOs up into one massive tower. When she stood up on the sofa, it was the perfect height for her sing into. Yes, little mini Munchkin created a standing microphone so she could perform. It was so sweet!
LEGOs for Girls & Boys
My daughter has been creating and building since she was small. She always enjoyed playing with the LEGO collection (which belonged to Frans) at her grandparents’ house, but it wasn’t until we got her a set of her own that she really began having fun. Of course, these weren’t just any LEGO pieces. The LEGO Friends set we bought included pastel-colored pieces to make a house with a small garden and a stable for the included horse.
Munchkin was never a girly-girl but she wasn’t a tomboy either. Her interests laid somewhere between the two. This set was perfect for her. It was versatile enough for her to build whatever she wanted. But, the different color scheme of the blocks and the accessories added just the right touch of “girly-ness” for her. These were prefect LEGOs for girls! Now, she’s more interested in super heroes than playing house but the point is her first memories of LEGO are good ones.
LEGO Friends & LEGO Bionicle on Netflix
LEGO continues to offer a variety of products and programming to appeal to both boys and girls. Starting this month two new shows are on streaming on Netflix — LEGO Friends : The Power of Friendship and LEGO Bionicle : The Journey to One. You’ll want to catch it every week and new episodes are added.
LEGO Friends : The Power of Friendship is about five girls who find that everything is better with friends. LEGO Bionicle : The Journey to One focuses on how six heroes use the elements to fight evil. I’m sure you kids will love either or both of these!
We were sent one LEGO set in honor of each new show. Based on the type of person my daughter is, though, she likes elements of both. When you mix cutesy-loving girl toys with rough and tumble robot warrior, you get something like this. Welcome to the action-packed super hero tea party 🙂

Do your kids enjoy playing with LEGO blocks?
I received a year subscription of Netflix and a device to stream the content as part of the Netflix Stream Team. All opinions are my own.
