Things we loved:
The lights. It was super cool to build a creation and then light it up.
The light options. Solid light, slow flashing or fast flashing lights.
The shapes. Lots of different shapes allowed for multiple creations with this one set.
The clear pieces. Being able to see inside them was pretty neat.
Compatibility. LOVE that these are compatible with other building sets.
Power options. You can purchase an AC adaptor to avoid multiple battery changes.
Things we'd like to see change:
Connections. Sometimes the connections didn't work and some of the blocks didn't light up.
All in all we think Laser Pegs are a great concept! We love, love the idea and I think that the boys will be asking for more of these for Christmas.
** Make sure to read the directions. When you buy the Laser Pegs there are 3 button cell batteries in it for the Try Me feature. Open up the base and put in AA batteries to make all of the light features work.
Laser Pegs® Introduces New Kits that Coordinate with other Popular Building Block and Construction Toy Sets
Every household in America with kids probably has a few bins full of colorful, toy building blocks that snap together to form houses, airplanes and anything else a child’s imagination can dream up. Now, that childhood classic has gone high tech. Laser Pegs® is introducing a new line of kits that can be used with the toy building blocks you already own. And, when connected to a Laser Pegs® power source, Laser Peg shapes and blocks illuminate as the brightly colored LED light inside them come to life.
While regular building blocks are made of opaque plastic, clear Laser Pegs® bring a whole new dimension of creativity to play. Each Laser Peg kit comes with a variety of Laser Peg Shapes, Stackable Pegs and Construction Bricks. Inside of the Laser Peg Shapes are 3 millimeter LED lights in a variety of colors. When connected to the included Power Base, the Laser Peg Shapes light up and shine through the clear Stackable Pegs and Construction Blocks, making your entire creation illuminate.
Laser Pegs® kits can be used to build a variety of models. Each kit comes with instructions to build six or more models and any kit can be used to freely create any design a kid can imagine.
Laser Pegs® are sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide and Target.com. Laser Pegs® kits start at $19.99. For more information visit www.laserpegs.com.
