In our home we take everything as a potential learning experience. For example, both my daughter and I are avid animal lovers and as such I’ve made it my mission to both learn and teach my daughter as much as I can about each animal she decides is her new favorite. One day it could be the Bengal Tiger and the next it could be the Bottlenose Dolphin; regardless of the species, there’s always an effort to educate both myself and my daughter about the facts that make each animal unique. From feeding habits to hunting techniques to unique bone structures and survival instincts, there’s always something new to uncover, which is why I’ve always been such a fan of National Geographic.
Whether your area of interest is in nature itself, animals (like my daughter and I) or even Geography, National Geographic has made it their mission to be an open portal for a limitless amount of knowledge. My family loves the National Geographic channel on TV and can watch it, day or night, regardless of what topic is being aired. We love National Geographic so much that when I was offered the opportunity to partner with Laser Pegs to review a National Geographic Laser Peg Construction Set, I naturally jumped at the opportunity. In addition to our many other interests, Geography is also high on our lists so being able to review a product that would help us expand on that interest was an added bonus to working with Laser Pegs.

You can become an architect without spending a day getting your degree with this amazing set that allows you to build world renowned wonders like the Colosseum, Big Ben, the Egyptian Pyramids and much more. Better still, once you’ve built some of your favorite world treasures, you’re able to make them light up to give you an even more stellar view of the masterpiece you’ve created.
Each Construction Set includes:
- 3D Lite Board Power Base
- 32 Laser Pegs
- 244 Tinted construction parts
- 1 Instruction manual
Mrs Sarah pointed out that she was a tad disappointed at the construction manual only let you make the Pyramids of Giza. The other 29 project needs to be downloaded from their website . Her thoughts are put them together and charge 250 or 350 for the book because not every kid has access to computer systems online and libraries will not let you download things.
This did not stop her from going ahead and using this set for other areas of interest. When she studied the twin towers, besides doing index paintings of before and after she created the twin towers with her laser pegs.
This really does take brick building blocks up to the next level!
