For many years now, when we think of buildings, one word comes to mind: Lego. Actually, “LEGO” is a Danish toy company founded in 1930 which, since 1949, has been building the famous bricks with which we all played at least once as a child, or not long ago.
These colored bricks have various shapes and sizes, although the base is rectangular, there are squares, round, with wheels, in the shape of movie or animal characters. We can find from the most basic blocks, or LEGO Classic, up to all types of buildings, such as Lego Friends.

Nowadays, anyone who has heard the word “Lego” knows what it is, or has played it at least once as a child. But before buying one for our children, some things are good to know. Below, we show you the necessary information about these famous buildings.
What Is Lego?
Lego is a toy company created in Denmark in 1932. Since 1949 it has started to use plastic for its constructions and created the brightly colored bricks known all over the world to encourage children’s Creativity, inspired by another company dedicated to this type of product.
The word “Lego” comes from Leg Godt, which means “Play Well.” Currently, it is the third-largest toymaker in the world, and even makes adult blocks called “Lego Creator Expert.” This product has managed to go down in history and be one of the most loved for many generations.
How Many Types of Lego Can You Find?
As you have noticed so far, the variety of these bricks is immense, and, with the passing of the years, we find more and more elaborate new models. Below, we show you a list of some of the most common types of Lego that can be purchased on the market:
LEGO Toy Story
LEGO Star Wars
LEGO Jurassic World
LEGO Harry Potter
LEGO Creator Expert
What Are the Benefits of Playing with Leg Os?
Numerous studies and experts have shown that constructions, in general, not only bring great benefits but are also a primary type of childhood game that every child has to go through. Therefore, we have grouped the more general benefits of using building bricks:
Improve Motor Skills: since they must use their fingers to grasp the pieces.
Improve Concentration: because they have to stay focused to assemble the building well and play with it.
It Helps to Develop Calculation Skills: because to build, they must count pieces, group, split, etc.
Increase Creativity: because they can build not only a toy but everything they imagine. Encourage self-esteem and self-confidence since they must set themselves a goal and strive to achieve it.
Reduces Stress: constructions have high relaxing power and are also a lot of fun.
It Makes You Aware of Space: depending on the buildings that become more difficult with age, you can create shapes with depth and distribution of space to create, for example, a small house.
Encourage Teamwork: there is nothing better than playing together to achieve an end like building a toy; this will help strengthen the bonds between children and acquire values of cooperation, help, or persistence.
What Materials Are Lego Bricks Made Of?
Since 1949 the LEGO company has used plastic as its primary source for making its toys. However, it is gradually improving to offer more excellent safety to children, as quality policies have changed. This brand has undoubtedly evolved for the better.
Since 1964, it has used ABS plastic, free of toxic substances, and more resistant to high temperatures. Since 2010 he has only worked with bioplastics, i.e., plastics derived from vegetable products such as soy, corn, or potato starch. Without a doubt, reliable and safe material for children.
Should I Play Lego with My Kids?
Just as playing team building can improve Teamwork and cooperation, participating with your children in this activity can be helpful. LEGO is a product designed for both children and adults to relax or even for a decorative and collectible purpose.
When you play construction with your child, remember that you always have to give them some autonomy and time to solve the complexity of the game. Sometimes he will ask you for help to get something mounted, but otherwise, he will be able to do everything himself. It is important to leave him moments to play alone to develop his Creativity.
The world of LEGO is vast, and there is a vast multitude of models and types that can only confuse us if we don’t know which one to choose. To find the right one, both for your son and your daughter, to give or buy for you, you must consider the following purchase criteria:
Age of the child
Interests of the boy or girl
Number of players
Age of The Child
What we need to consider before buying a LEGO brick model is undoubtedly the age of the child to whom we will buy it. As we have seen, based on its evolutionary characteristics, the toy will have to be more or less complicated, with a higher number of pieces or with a theme than another.
For example, if you buy this toy for children from 1 to 2 years of age, we recommend the LEGO DUPLO models; for older generations, for instance, from 6 to 8 years, we recommend LEGO Disney, LEGO Star Wars or LEGO Friends. And, for the more experienced, we recommend the LEGO above Creator Expert, LEGO Harry Potter, or LEGO Architecture.
Interests of The Boy or Girl
LEGO Classic can be a good option if we want to make a gift, but we don’t know much about the tastes of the boy or girl. However, there is a wide range of themes to choose from that can please all the little ones, offering an extra stimulus to build the toy.
LEGOs can turn into just about anything. If he likes superheroes, there is LEGO Marvel and DC, and if he wants houses and buildings, there is LEGO City. We find ninjas, animals, movie characters, games, vehicles, and buildings. As you can see, you can find anything if you know his interests a little.
As mentioned before, constructions with a specific theme can make us guess the right gift. LEGO has many special editions where it uses an idea to create a variety of buildings, such as the Disney, Star Wars, or Harry Potter edition.
Also, we find minimal editions that are difficult to obtain, but that any collector would like to have—for example, LEGO VOLKSWAGEN T1, SIDNEY OPERA HOUSE, or TAJ MAHAL. You can even buy limited edition random figures from various films such as Batman.
Number of Players
If you are about to buy a LEGO, we recommend that you take one in which the number of players is more significant than one. This will encourage Teamwork, cooperation, and help. There is also an adult edition called LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY ™ for a better working environment in corporate meetings.
