Maybe strange, but toys are the most important educational element. Aside from the entertainment, toys, especially the educational ones, offer an easy and excellent opportunity to teach kids from an early age about shapes and colours, as well as how to construct, which is extremely important for brain development as well as motor skills. The best and most safe toys of that type are the LEGO toys. They are simply the perfect way to keep your kid entertained and the same time, teach him/her about so many new things.
One thing is sure, the “best of” LEGO sets for up-to-five-year-old children, are not lacking in creativity or fun! Whether a boy or a girl, there is a number of excellent choices of perfectly sized LEGO pieces, specially made for those tiny and cute hands.
After some research, and a good digging through every online toy store, I was able to gather together a list of the five most popular LEGO toys that come at a wide variety of prices suited to correspond everyone’s budget.
