Legos & Other Building Bricks
I want to buy a large set of Magna-tiles for my kids (100
piece set) but was kind of shocked at the price, around $100
through Amazon. Does anyone know of a better price, or is
this what I'll have to pay? anon
I think that's the going rate. They're expensive, but it's
one of the best things I have ever bought for my kids.
We've had them for 4 years, and they still get played with
everyday, by all three of my kids. My oldest has been
playing with them since he was three, and hasn't aged out of
them at all. Go for it! super fan
Legos with Girl Figures
My daughter is graduating from duplos to legos and she wants little figures to
use with the legos. The only figures I could find were boys/men and she wants
girls/women or some mixture of figures that includes a reasonable number of
girls. Does anyone know of a store that has these?
There are a few lines of Lego products which are sold in
stores in Europe (well at least Italy) and not here. One of
them is called Belville and has a fairy tale theme. There
are Lego dolls too. You can buy them directly at
To the person looking for girl type legos. We were
just in Disneyland, at the Lego store in Downtown
Disney they had sets of princess themed "girl" legos
in pink, purple, beige, etc. colors, with castle and
princess accessories. I have never seen them in other
stores, but maybe Lego has a website, or phone number
you can call, and maybe order them.
Hope this helps, Lynn

You can also check this URL for a Minnie Mouse Lego
The latter can be found at Wal-Mart or Target. The
special girls products may have to be ordered directly
from Lego since I haven't found them at retail. Some
of the boys kits have girl figurines but they can be
hard to distinguish.
In the Lakeshore catalog, they have a Lego Community
People set (LG9293) which looks to be a mix of males
and females doing various jobs plus their tools. The
closest Lakeshore is in San Leandro, but you could
also try www.lakeshorelearning.com. Good luck.
I would tell my daughter that the Legos figures ARE girls. How do we know
they aren't? If you believe girls can do all the things boys (and Legos) do, its
just a matter of whether or not they wear pants to do them. OK, the pirates
with facial hair are definitely male....(aren't they?) We were recently at the Lego
store at Disneyland and I was tickled to see that the crowd at the primary colors
Lego table was about 50/50 boys/girls -- and that EVERYONE was avoiding the
"girl" table (ie PINK and light blue emphasis). Good luck!
