Boys love bugs.. And boys love building things.. So when I discovered Laser Pegs I knew my boys would love them!
About Laser Pegs: The national award winning Laser Pegs™ is the first construction toy set in the world in which each piece feeds the next piece low voltage current. You can design and build anything you want with Laser Pegs™ and use them lit up or turned off. Laser Pegs™ use a high quality LED that will run about 100,000 hours, which is equivalent to keeping them illuminated non-stop for 11 years.
All parts of the Laser Pegs™ set have been ASTM tested, have satisfied 100% of all the toy testing criteria, and are federally approved.
Laser Pegs are geared for children ages 7 and up, which makes my boys a little young for them.. That's where my husband comes in.. He sat down with the boys and built them The Mini Monster Bug that we received for this review. Of course, they loved it! We turned off the lights and I swear my boys could have sat there for hours playing with that bug!
The Mini Monster Bug kit is just one of three starter kits. It comes with 32 laser pegs that allows you to create 9 different models, which can all be viewed on the Models page of laserpegs.com. Laser Pegs also come in an 84 piece World Of Bug kit that allows you to build 18 different models, as well as several other kits including a Tractor and Dune Buggy to name a few.
Laser Pegs are definitely a cool toy and would make a great Christmas or Birthday gift! They range in price from $24.95 for the starter kits to $59.95 for the larger kits. Instructions for building other models can be downloaded for free off of their website.
