My two sons were very excited as we went to see the exhibit of the First LEGO Giant Christmas Tree & LEGO Christmas City at the SM City North Edsa. My eldest son started to play LEGO building blocks at age 7, way back 1998. His interest in these small bricks influenced his younger brother who’s now 12 years old.
JM’s collection of LEGO blocks were still intact and keeps on growing as he and Yahmir continued playing with it all these years. It keeps them quiet and busy as I can finish my house chores without much disturbance from them.
At first, I only see it as an added clutter but as I saw JM’s creation of beautiful structures. I came to realize that there are many educational benefits that a child could get simply by playing with it. It can improve the hand and eye coordination, encourages interaction and imagination as they converse and exchange ideas on how will they put up a structure, and lastly it can develop and stimulate creativity as they design their own creation.
The LEGO Giant Christmas Tree. I just wonder how long does it take to put a tree made of small bricks and how many hands had worked on it? Sad that I was not able to ask the woman in the front desk for there are many people lingering and asking questions on her, so we just proceeded to see the exhibit instead and I totally forgot to ask my concern afterwards, lol.
My two sons who are LEGO fanatics, happily smiles for a picture-taking with the giant Christmas tree behind them.
Ninjago, one of the latest LEGO products they purchased to add into their collection.
As they look on the details of the creations, they also hunt and keep on counting the minifig Lego Santa.
The next pictures are the beautiful, very creative and fascinating handiworks of small bricks.
My husband and I also enjoyed viewing the exhibit and at the same time happy watching our children so much engrossed in looking at the creations one by one. You can still catch and view it, for the exhibit will go on till January 10, 2012.
