lego love

Well, this stuff isn't actually Lego, it's Banbao- a less expensive and compatible alternative. 

I love afternoons like these. The boy and I have just spent over an hour sitting side by side in front of the fire putting this together, his little hands carefully pushing on the pieces. It was supposed to be a Christmas present but I'm hopeless as I know how much he loves them : )

We use our 'breakfast in bed tray'- it's perfect for keeping track of the teeny weeny blocks.

We got our set from http://www.fishpond.co.nz/ where there's a range of vehicles for $11.97 including postage. The one I bought had 125 pieces.

Banbao is also crazy cheap on http://www.aliexpress.com


  1. Oh lego (and the like!) how we love you! One of the best ways to spend an afternoon :)

  2. All fun and games until you stand on a piece! lol : )
