  1. My son is interested in doing the things in this book, but he will not do them using the book. He knows it. I know it. He is a video kid. The Unofficial Lego Technic Builder's Guide, https://www.amazon.c...=I21X7QXPCU04N5 Does anyone know where I can find some kind of video series that would be as comprehensive as this book? Thanks!
  2. I recently read a mommy blog about Pley.com, which is a monthly subscription for Lego sets. I googled "Pley reviews" and there were not many, and were very mixed. Have any of you gotten this for your children? Thoughts? We are most interested in the big sets that would keep a lego maniac busy for a day or two. Is there a long wait time for these? Is it like Paperback Swap, when the object gets shipped when it's available (and it could be month and months??) We don't want to waste our money if we can't get the sets we'd like, in the general time frame that we'd want them in, which is summer. Thanks for your input!
  3. What has been your experience with this set? Did you use the activity pack software? Was it worth it? I would like to do a short unit study about simple machines for fun over the summer and follow it with this, but not sure if the activity pack is overkill or the perfect go along. It is a bit pricey, but I'm willing to do it if it is that good.
  4. I am looking into starting a Lego First team. The information online has been a bit overwhelming to me so I was hoping someone had first hand experience doing this and could give me some insight? What goes into starting a team? What time commitment can I expect? What cost is involved? (we own the EV3 set and expansion) What else should I know? Based on info I've found, it seems like I have to be an engineer with corporate sponsors to have any luck starting a team....surely that isn't accurate.
  5. You have to check out this recreation of Hogwarts. It is amazing! It took the creator, Alice Finch, twelve months to build, and she used 400,000 lego bricks. You can read an interview with her here.
  6. I am not sure if anyone has shared this yet, but here is a link to some great Lego ornaments that you can make. The site has pictures and step by step directions on how to make each one. The kids and I are going to build some this afternoon. My youngest is excited to make the Death Star.
  7. Came across a book today called ME Robots. The ME Robots prgm is designed for girls and STEM, but can be used by anyone. I thought this looked interesting, although short. I think the price is a good reflection of the length. There are teacher and student workbooks. http://www.amazon.com/Robots-Mechanical-Engineering-Engineer---training/dp/1475135238/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1345166187&sr=8-4&keywords=lego+motorized+simple#_
  8. I am having a really hard time trying to find lego instruction booklets. The ones I am finding are pictures of completed projects only and those are NOT what my children want. They prefer the books with actual instructions via pictures or written instructions. Anyone with ideas on where to find these. I have tried craigslist and the one in my area is useless for lego anything. I won't shop on ebay anymore so that is out and the only one I found on amazon is listed for $499.00 which is a tad out of my price range;). Thanks!
  9. Help! I have a just-turned 8 year-old who is a Lego fanatic. We also have K'Nex and Snap Circuits that he is likewise obsessed with. During the warmer months, he spends half his life in the garage working on this-or-that creative project with his toolbox and scrap wood. In the wintertime, it's creating space stations made from recycling & Duct Tape (all through the house, ugggg!). We buy him the large Lego kits and he is finished within a couple of hours, tops. All the Lego kits from his birthday last week have been finished for days and he's fidgety already. What is a next step? To spend this kind of cash on these huge Lego kits for a couple hours of fun... well, we could have paid for a trip to Disney at this point, lol!! I want something that will at least slow him down some, but don't know what's available out there. :huh: I know there are some kind of robotic Legos, but are those too intricate? My girls weren't quite this... enthusiastic. They enjoy their Lego kits, and they build them quickly, but sort of pace themselves. DS, on the other hand, once the box is opened, he is a Man On A Mission. He also spends a lot of time building his own projects with the huge amount of miscellaneous Legos we have, but he REALLY enjoys following those instruction sheets.
  10. My lego lover is more girlie than most of the lego stuff available. We were able to get some things that back when she was in the duplo stage like the house stuff and the Winnie the Pooh stuff but she's weeeeelllll past duplo and would prefer more girl stuff in the lego dept. She did go through a Star Wars phase and, indeed, still likes some of that but honestly, Doesn't Lego ever get a new idea? Enough of Star Wars already. What does your girlie Lego lover love?
  11. In the regular Lego catalog, there is a basic NXT set that sells for $279 and comes with software and sixteen projects and four robot plans. In the Lego Education catalog there's this kit that looks the same and is the same price, plus, there's a "Software Sold Separately" note with a link to this. Is the software just more tutorials and projects? Are these kits the same? Should I add the software for my almost ten-year-old? Or do I want the homeschool kit? And is that not just the software plus the base kit?
  12. Any one use them? I can't believe there aren't too many reviews out there on these kits. I really want to buy one but as they are so expensive, I want to make sure it is worth it and that I get the right kit for my son. Anyone have experience with these? My son is going in to grade 2 this year BTW.
  13. We will not be participating this year, but I'd like to start a homeschool FLL team next fall. If you've started one (from the ground up), what advice do you have? When did you start planning? Costs? etc. etc. etc. Thanks!
  14. Ds 8 is starting to really get into legos. Oh, the millions of pieces. :blink: An organizational nightmare for this hyper-organized mom and her organized-challenged son! :001_smile: A friend shared that they had tried several systems and decided to have 5 buckets: black/grey, orange/yellow, green/blue, white/brown, red/purple/pink/other. They keep directions in a final 6th bucket. Anytime the kids want to build they can go straight to the needed color and search. At first they tried to organize by theme: Star Wars in one bucket, racers in another, castle in another... She said they all ended up getting mixed up anyway, creating more frustration. My ds already has a low frustration level with this. He loves the legos and the building but the searching drives him nuts! This color system seems logical to me and the best thing I can think of but I wanted to see what others thought who are much further advanced in the lego world! :bigear:
  15. My ds12 is very serious about his Lego collection. He has a full table with an elaborate setup. He plays with it every day. I need to reorganize his room but he refuses to part with even the slightest item. Please understand that my son has Asperger's Syndrome and his Lego setup is an intense interest. Jeffrey's Lego setup at photobucket
  16. My kids cannot agree, my google search is all over the map, and I just want to disassemble all the "creations" from the last year and put them away. I'm having organizational fits lately. My kids never want to undo their creations. Do you make them? Eventually? One of my sons is fine with it, the other is getting testy about it, and I'm just running out of space. Also, they don't make many unique creations because they don't want to break up the sets. By color? By theme (Star wars, Indiana Jones, Mars Mission, etc)? By ? Arrrrrrrrgh! Help.
  17. The page I'm looking at right now has Build a: belt drive gear trains (and calculate gear rations) catapult robot that will break a pinata gear driven car wind tunnel (and experiment with aerodynamics) Another section has: Discover Pi through Lego constructs. Calculate the median of trapezoids. Calculate probability. Build a calculating machine. It's Weird Richard on EdVentures. I had to sign up for a two week free trial here before they'd let me see the Lego lesson plans. Then I clicked on Course Catalog, then Weird Richard, then Weird Richard Teacher Activities. The lesson plans are simplistic, but provided the jumping off point we needed and the foundational ideas this non-engineery mom couldn't think up.
  18. My boys have caught the "lego" bug. We have a large bin of bricks that I bought by the pound on ebay. That seems to be a great way to store them. However, they have both just bought their first Star Wars lego ships. Not quite sure how to store these. Should I have a separate plastic bin for each ship so the bricks don't get mixed up...and keep the building instructions with the individual ships? Of course, that means I could eventually have a lot of bins...especially with the generosity of grandparents this Christmas! Should I just not worry about it since they will probably get mixed up anyways in a few weeks? Give them a special place on a shelf? I am pretty sure they will want to keep the pieces together. Oh, and we don't have a lot of room to store things. How do you do it? :confused::confused::confused::confused:
  19. Please help me with ideas for organizing/storing the many, many legos in ds's room. They are used daily (for many hours, I might add) and put away daily - into one big plastic box. I want to help get it sorted in a simple way that he can handle. It is getting out of hand!
