Tiny Lego Wonders

Build 40 Surprisingly Realistic Mini-Models!

Reviewed by

Kids (ages 9 and up) and adults will delight in this collection of cars, boats, planes, trains, spaceships, and more, all constructed with Legos.

Designs are arranged by theme and include an airport, a race track, a harbor, and even a moon army, among others. Each project is shown with a list of materials and a level of difficulty (easy, medium, or hard), then the instructions are given in diagrams that anyone who has ever assembled a Lego kit will understand.

Some of the pieces used are standard, and colors can always be substituted. Sources are given for buying particular pieces that might not be in the builder’s collection. Variations are shown to give builders more ideas, but instructions aren’t given for those options.

Photographs of the finished designs in a Lego environment, such as the fire trucks and police car at the scene of a fire in a Lego apartment building, are inspiring and sure to encourage further building to make a whole scene.

The design choices will delight those who like assembling vehicles, and the identification of skill levels makes it easy to choose projects when working with kids.
