  2. This is a brilliant initiative by LEGO. My niece would just love this as a gift. At four, she's not quite ready to move to the older versions of LEGO but loves it nonetheless. Oh I hope I win!

    Love watching kids develop new skills, it's so amazing! My oldest son is learning to read, and it's amazing to see his little mind expanding as he looks for words everywhere now.

  4. My youngest is losing her first tooth – always makes their face look so different when they start losing teeth.

    What a great product from LEGO! I love that they’re including other instructions too. Invariably our sets have been made and then played with but not broken down and rebuilt the hundreds of times like we did as kids. We love their 3-1 kits – have given a few now as presents. Your first job sounds like a dream!

  5. My almost two year old is stringing together mini-sentences and it's so beautiful to see him transform from baby to toddler! My kids would looooove this set!

    the first year of primary school is soon approaching for my first born baby. So it’s A first for me too, excited and nervous rolled in with some sad mum tears lol. My baby is growing up.

    I love that you mention firsts, Indeed creating with lego is a special first and to see their pride shine through when they succeed is definitely a moment to remember.

  7. I'm watching the first time my twins go school – well almost! They are off to Kindy Orientation each week.

    What a dream teenage job you had! Awesome! I am watching my baby getting ready to crawl, rocking back and forwards on all fours, reaching for everything. I am watching my preschool kid learn how fun it is to jump on a trampoline, how big she can jump and the excitement of it all. And I am watching my kindy lad starting to learn about the value of money, from a year of saving tooth fairy and present money to being able to choose something amazing to spend it on (he chose a wooden sword and shield from our school fair)

    With school starting next year we are having a lot of firsts too! My favourite first at the moment is my girls enjoying playing games that involve turn taking like party games, board games and card games. Lots of fun on family nights.

    Love Lego for so many reasons. They are working really hard to be a sustainable company and recently pulled out of their contract with Shell in protest to the oil company's plan to drill in the Arctic!

    My little man is off to school next year, but today's first (they seem to happen frequently these days) is his first time kiteboarding with daddy!

    Hi Danya! I know that living overseas, I'm not eligible to enter the contest, but wanted to comment anyway 🙂
    I LOVED Lego when I was a kid, and I can't wait until my 6 month old son can play with it – methinks we'll be getting him some Lego Duplo soon!
    I'm also loving watching all his firsts – he is currently learning to sit up, and the look on his face when he saves himself from toppling over is PRICELESS! He's so proud of himself – my heart just beams when I see that huge smile 🙂

      Thanks for your comment Anne! Six months is such a lovely age- they start to interact so much! Oh and btw, when Mr Banya was picking the winner, and he said to give you highly commended for effort. 🙂

    Love LEGO! This range looks so great! I'm about to witness my Son's first fishing trip – let's hope this equals his first ever fish catch too! Wish us luck! Louise x

    My six year old made his porridge from scratch (we microwave just in case you got carried away and pictured him lighting a gas stove as part of the process) yesterday. I wasn't allowed to help – in fact I was forced to leave the room (we have made it together a couple of times recently). That was an exciting milestone for both of us… he felt super grown up and I started imagining a Sunday sleep in for myself one day soon… can't be far off it can I??

  16. Miss Possum just made her 'first' lego rocket today. Seriously! I'm not kidding either. She made it this morning!

    At the tender age of 3 months we have recently witnessed our daughters first fight with her cousin. She is yet to fully comprehend the effect that waving her arms around like she just don’t care has on others around her and recently had a bust up with her similarly aged cousin who also likes to explore with her arms.

    Today was Orientation Day and uniform fitting for kindergarten. As my daughter tried the summer dress and hat for the first time, I couldn't help but feel a bit tearful. She looked so grown up! Everyone told time would pass so fast and they are right. Big School is coming and maybe from all the "firsts" this one will bring more than ever that feeling that she is becoming more independent and part of a big world as well. I just can't help but feel very nostalgic about it.

    I checked out the Lego Juniors in the store the other day and I agree with you, they are ideal….thanks for the tip, great for Christmas gifts. My 5 year old daughter would love to receive "The Princess Play Castle" to play with. It would keep her busy for hours.

  23. This morning I secretly celebrated a first- today I told my 5 year old that I was having a shower so if she needed anything she would need to call for daddy. Amazingly, for the first time in as long as I can remember, she didn't interrupt my shower or sit on the bath mat while "waiting" for me to finish. She didn't call out and her brother didn't come in crying. I exited the shower expecting to see chaos or perhaps discover she had climbed up to help herself to the lolly jar- only to find her peacefully playing in her room. I smiled and celebrated my first uninterrupted shower in forever and my daughter's first step towards independence.

    I would love to celebrate my daughter's first build with a lego junior set sometime soon!

    The 'first' we're experiencing is freaking me out
    Even though Miss Four is all ready, without a doubt
    You see, she just had her first orientation day
    As she's off to school next year, come what may
    Watching her grow so fast at times can be scary
    And weird, and wonderful, and makes me wary!
    So if I were to win this awesome Lego pack
    I would give it to her, straight from Santa's sack
    It looks fantastic and would be ideal
    And on Christmas morning, she would squeal!

    My 3 year old is currently learning the art of being independent and she loves anything crafty and structural. My 9 month old is currently learning to stand and piece things together. Both are a nightmare and I need a new distraction lol

    Once I have heard my baby's first laugh a couple of days ago, I don't seem to get enough of this cute sound! Bring on the giggles! 🙂

    Great prize! Thanks for the chance to win. 🙂 My little girl is almost 5 now and I just love the way she is more patient, calmer and has more respect and empathy for other people around her. Temper tantrums are a thing in the past and I love the way she is becoming a well-behaved, reasonable child. 🙂 What a great age!

  30. I haven't really been down the lego path with the girls yet. My son loved his lego though. I might look into lego for christmas. I had no idea they had princess inspired stuff.
    Only this week Izzy has had her first tooth fairy experience and Summer, well she had her first outing without a nappy! I am so glad it was a successful one.
