Recent Blog review and write up about Laser Pegs new Tinted construction sets.

Great Christmas gifts for boys AND girls!

You’ll want to get your hands on the latest craze!  Have you heard of Laser Pegs?

They are the first construction toy set in the world in which each piece feeds the next piece low voltage current!  Crazy right!  They’re taking two of the things kids love – lights and building and turning it into endless fun.

Laser Pegs – The Ultimate Construction Toy

A little about the Laser Pegs kits:

Each kit comes with a range of models to assemble out of Laser Pegs and clear or colorful construction pieces. All the parts are easy to rearrange and swap so that anyone can build their own light up creation!  The new tinted pieces give the kits a whole new look that all kids love.  The part I like is how each kit has multiple ways it can be built.  Take the Tinted Dragon kit featured above that has 57 models in 1!  Now that’s a lot of fun and building in one box.
