My youngest son is in a Lego League at school. I really love that there is an extracurricular activity that requires kids to think and is fun instead of just sporting activities. Kyle has been building robots on a team out of Legos and hooking them up to a computer to see if they stand, turn and more. I was busy looking around the net because Kyle is really getting back into playing with his current Leggos. You might want to check out the large LEGO Ultimate Building Set - 405 Pieces for under $20 and if you add something like Lego City Set #5612 Exclusive Mini Figure Police Officer to make your purchase over $25 you can get FREE shipping.
