The kids and I recently went on a trip to visit our families in Utah, and although the flight was making the travel part much easier, I was worried about the kids. It’s not a horribly long flight, except we did have TWO due to a plane change in the middle. That long sitting still in a plane doesn’t do well for these littles! Luckily I brought along a ‘secret weapon’ so I could have Happy Kids on an Airplane Without Electronics!
If you know us, you know we absolutely love LEGO® – hubby grew up all about building and creating with them, and still has totes of them that we love to play with as a family. I love the imagination it brings out in my kids – but I never considered taking them on a flight before, at least until I heard about LEGO® JUNIORS Suitcases!
Each of these come in a neat little suitcase (easily carried by the kids, which means less in YOUR hands) and inside are packed sets and simple-to-follow instructions.
My boys needed just a tiny bit of guidance as we put them together – but Black Widow did just perfect by herself!
Once we got the sets built, they didn’t need any help at all playing and using their imagination with their new pieces!
They were really excited about the little people that came in each set (2 sets per suitcase, if you were wondering).
They were happy to use their creativity to come up with fun stories, games and their own little worlds the entire flight – making it a much nicer trip for everyone! I always feel better when they’re using creative thinking skills and building confidence in themselves WHILE having a great time.
LEGO® JUNIORS is designed to give children age 4-7 a great first building experience with the LEGO brick through iconic, fun and easy to build models. And it doesn’t have to be ‘pink for girls’ and ‘rescue planes’ for boys – they love them ALL!
If you’ve got an upcoming trip – whether it’s on an airplane, car or boat – don’t leave home without it! The LEGO® JUNIORS Suitcase is the perfect travel companion to keep your youngster entertained this summer. Filled with an assortment of LEGO bricks and exciting role play components the suitcase is extremely portable— opening up a world of play possibilities anywhere you go!
I know, these photos are far from the best – but we were on an airplane with weird lighting and sun blaring in any open windows so I think I deserve some slack here 😉
