The Main reason I was so existed to get this, is because while this is a fun item to have, Leo also has medical needs, for those who do not know Lego can be used as Lego Therapy! - Building with Lego bricks is a multi-sensory, open-ended experience, so the building projects can be tailored to any person’s unique needs, such as blindness, deafness, mobility impairment, autism or ADHD.  It also builds up his muscles in hand and eye co-ordination. - Hes told to use lego from the occupational therapist and physiotherapist.

Leo has been doing lego hero factory, since he was given a birthday gift back in september. He enjoys making them, and also makes his own using the lego.  This huge box, has given him the chance to make his own items, from cars, a football pitch, men to fight his Lego hero characters. It really allows him to set his imagination flowing. Hes even spoken to me about making a skylanders land, with his lego!

Being a single Mum Id like to say that mum is a SuperHero TOO - 

What do kids of 2013 really think of their dads?
·         Study shows dads still have the power to embarrass their kids
·         But overwhelming majority of children count dad as their hero
·         So what are kids most proud of their dad for, what do they think dad does better than anyone else and what are their favourite things to do with dad?

It’s often said that parenting can be the most stressful yet rewarding job you’ll ever have, however parents can now take comfort as according to a new study released today kids do appreciate their dads, so much so that almost 90% rank their dad as their hero.

When asked what makes them most proud of their dad a quarter say it’s how he looks after the family and a fifth that he works really hard to give their family a good life.
Children were also polled on what they think their dad is best at with almost 60% saying driving the car, more than half mending and fixing things around the house and just under half helping with school work.
However, the one thing that does bug kids about their dads is the age-old embarrassing-dad routine, which the survey shows was also a big bugbear for today’s fathers when they were kids.
The study shows that 65% of today’s kids are embarrassed by their dads’ antics, with the exact number of dads saying their own fathers regularly showed them up when they were children.
Kids of today rank their dads’ bad jokes, bad dancing, public displays of affection by kissing and cuddling them in front of friends and their bad clothes as the biggest dad-embarrassments, which is almost identical to the list dads of today gave about their old men.

But what kids may or may not know about their dads is that most dads are doing it on purpose with 58% of those surveyed by LEGO admitting they go out of their way to embarrass their kids with their awful dancing, terrible jokes, kisses and cuddles and handholding.

But the embarrassment factor is not enough to put kids off wanting to hang out as much as possible with dads, with more than half of children ranking their dad’s game-playing ability as top notch, which could be something to do with the fact that 95% of dads play the same things they played with their fathers with their own kids.
Playing football, playing with LEGO and playing board games rated as kids favourite things to play with their dads, which according to the poll were the favourites of dads when they were children.


LEGO has been covering playroom floors since 1949 and today is still the no.1 kids’ construction toy.  So popular is LEGO worldwide, that there are now 80 LEGO bricks to every person in the world!  Why not challenge Dads and Kids to see what they could build with 80 LEGO Bricks, no towers allowed, get creative!
