Introducing Zaptor, Velectro and Teslo - The Electroid Mixels
My eldest, BP, is 9 years old and has never really been that bothered about Lego. We've bought various kits over the years and he's quite happy to make whatever the thing is but then quickly loses interest after it's finished. He hasn't ever used Lego to create his own things, made up dens or buildings using the Lego. I decided a while ago not to bother buying any more kits, Lego is quite expensive after all.

A few months ago we were wandering in the toy aisle at Tesco and happened to come across something called Lego Mixels. Small Lego kits that when pieced together make little creatures. BP wanted one immediately and decided to use his own money. He made the first one in about 20 minutes and wanted to go straight back to Tesco to buy the rest.

There are three kinds at the moment; Electroids, Cragsters and Infernites. These yellow ones are the Electroids and the characters names are Teslo, Zaptor and Velectro. When LP saw the little characters he wanted some of his own and we decided to buy the Cragsters set for him. The great thing about these little packs of Lego is that they're only £3 each which I think is a great deal. Usually to get a small pack of Lego you're going to be paying at least £10! 

I'm sure that when Lego release series 2 of the Mixels my two boys will be very eager to buy the sets. They are great for 5 year olds because the instructions are quite simple and they're not too big. LP will happily sit for 20 minutes and build his figure and he can actually build it himself, which is great too. I think, before long, I'll have a house taken over by Mixels!

  2. Lego is always trying to come up with new things that are not far from the original idea of putting things together. I am glad that your son finally found something that is of interest to him. My son loves his mini figures. But you are right they can be pricey. #MiniCreations
