For the love of LEGO
If there is one thing that my three year old daughter does passionately, it has to be playing Lego. If there is a Lego club in Kenya then she definitely needs to be a member. Seriously. The level of concentration that she exhibits when exploring different ways to stack the blocks is simply beautiful to watch. For that reason, I got her her second Lego set, one that will help her in number recognition (she can count 1-20 but can only recognize 1-5). What a better way to learn than to have fun doing it? Her first set was the one that comes with a biker, a police man and a bank and she has built so many variations of the same thing it was only fair we upgrade.
This was day two of using the new Lego set, and while I was trying to recreate what was on the box, she opted to do come up with her own designs. We were however not at it for too long as this was done this morning before work and school as we were waiting for daddy to get ready.
If you are not exploring the different Lego sets already then you don’t know what you are missing out on. It is so much fun even for the adults and whats more, there are so many different types whenever you get bored with one set you can always buy another. Just be prepared to have your wallet dented, but all for a good cause.

Happy hump day!
Me like toys….
I love this blog!
Where do you buy your Lego sets?average costs?both my babies birthdays are coming up and you just made my work so much easier!!
Thanks Mary, I am happy to be of help!They start from I think Ksh 1,000 all the way to Ksh 10,000+ depending with the number of blocks and complexity.The train set was Ksh 2,900. You can buy from Chandarana, Toy World, Nakumatt or Jumia. I realised Nakumatt is the cheapest and Toy World the most expensive.
True. But actually they go till like 50k!
Also note that they have age brackets and within each bracket they vary in complexity. The shop attendant should help in explaining this.
Lego is indeed a good companion, I bought TWO in December but I know it’s money well spent.
Wow! The 50k one must be a real house hehe. Honestly though I can see a parent spending that much if their kid is obsessed with the sport.
There is a LEGO club in Kenya in lavington ..just check LEGO kenya on fb…:)…my 2yr old too really loves the game
Thank you so much Joyce for this. I am on it!
And you two are matching with the pink. That is too cuuuute!! This blog is just full of so much cuteness. And Lego sets are the best toys. I still remember my first set when I was growing up:-)
By the way the pink is a pure coincidence given that her nanny picked out her clothes.Thank you Megan for reading and I am glad you are loving the posts.
looks like fun….is there a version for a two year old?
It is so much fun Eva and yes you can get for your two year old. The sets start from one year and the age group is indicated on the box.
Your posts are addictive….always looking forward to learn a new thing..who would have guessed?
Who would have guessed indeed 🙂
Creativity from such a young age is so inspiring and goes to show why we need the 8-4-4 education system changed.
Btw you both have such similar jaw-lines (read cheeks and lips)
And that minion doll be speaking to me. #love
Montessori is the bees knees 🙂 I totally feel played by my folks when i see my three year old’s capabilities.
Hahaa. In our folks’ defence, they had not heard of Montessori and the likes wakiwa all the way in the bundus. Lol
I guess you are right Bree. Shagz life is just hard knock!
