I am a seasoned Lego mum , my oldest son had so many Lego Bionicles (and Lego bricks)- I was always
Sam and Joel love their Lego. We brought Duplo - all our figures or 'MEN' and 'Cars 2' and big bricks mostly] along on our road trip and they play with it in and out of the car as we travel. The Lego was left at home except for Rocka !
You may have seen LEGO® Hero Factory , latest and greatest offering of awesome monsterish Lego creations which morph into the most imaginative action heros as they defeat evil, restoring peace across Quatros, the jungle universe.
My small boys love building creatures or 'friends' , so does their male cousin 9yrs old who has introduced them to many creatures .These Lego Super Heroes are hot !
I feel doomed - just after I've learnt the names of all the
Stormer with the strength of a rhino
Nex with razor sharp tiger blades,
Bulk with wolf speed and
Rocka with Lion power ...we got to review Rocka .
The Rocka XL we reviewed needed all my special powers to build him. A'hem ... I got it right after a few misplaced pieces. (Not as in lost but positioned wrongly - Technically I am a little challenged.)
The boys were able to help me with the revolutionary ball & socket joints and 'claws' - it was a little difficult for small fingers to click them into place but they did some of it (bear in mind this Hero is aimed at 9-16yrs *). I did the major construction of adding 'limbs' & 'weapons' to the body. They loved the little ball launcher. (*Other figures are aged 7-16yrs)
Interestingly , Hero cans come with a unique code inside, unlocking exclusive content at www.HeroFactory.LEGO.com.
A new 44-minute mini movie airing on Nickelodeon compliments the new Hero range.

It will be a while before my boys graduate to this feature.

Now the best part of any review is the giveaway - I have 3 x Lego Hero Factory figures to giveaway.
Be warned they are not sweet or cute looking like little Lego men but *sigh* I can't stop my boys from liking these Heroes . I think they go together so cleverly The design is ingenious !!
I recently read these Lego facts -
It started off as a simple idea for a toy in a carpentry workshop, and continues to feed the imagination of various generations. And it has become part of millions of childhoods, across many different countries and cultures.
It is still a privately owned family company based in Denmark but ...
