There are so many amazing building sets available and with two boys in the house, I’ve seen a lot of them. So it takes something extra special to really “wow” me when it comes to a construction kit.
When I heard about Laser Pegs, it sounded like a set that just might be that special. These amazing building pieces feature low voltage LED lights inside, and when the pegs are connected to one another and plugged into the included battery pack, the finished structure lights up in a rainbow of colours. It sounded incredible and I couldn’t wait when I got the chance to review a Laser Pegs set.
We received the Tractor set to review and of course, I barely got a chance to unwrap the package before Zackary had grabbed the box and run over to his dad to start building. Whenever something like this comes into the house, Curtis usually takes the lead with it; he loves construction sets as much as Zackary and unlike his son, he actually follows the instructions so that we can see the finished project.
Curtis spent a few minutes assembling the 29-piece tractor while Zackary experimented with the pieces. Soon, they were ready to power up the finished vehicle.
The multicoloured tractor looked so cool and Zackary immediately insisted on moving it to his room. For the next few days, he spent a few minutes before bed building his Laser Pegs set into a new configuration and then turning it on when I turned out his lights to act as a nightlight. I loved seeing what kind of fun and colourful sculptures he could create with the same kit!
While the Laser Pegs kit did come with a battery pack, it can also be powered by an AC/DC adapter plug and since the pegs can drain batteries fairly quickly (especially if you have a child that’s using his construction as a night light) I definitely recommend finding or buying an AC/DC Adapter. My husband tends to collect power adapters so we had no problem finding one that worked. But for those that may not have such pack rat tendencies, there is also an adapter available to purchase on the Laser Pegs site.
Overall, Laser Pegs was an easy-to-use and fun building set and the unique twist of the illuminated pieces made it a fast favourite with my son. If you have a young builder in the family, check out Laser Pegs for yourself and let your child have fun with the only building set that lets them play with light!
