What It Is
Laser Pegs is a building system that uses pegged building blocks that light up. The Laser Pegs 6 in 1 Lighted Construction Set includes 20 Laser Pegs, a triangle power base, and an instruction manual. Kids can build an alien bug, light plant, star shuttle craft, rattlesnake, desert speeder, and whatever else they can create. Inside each Laser Pegs piece are long-lasting, high-quality LED lights. Once connected to a power base, each Laser Pegs shape feeds the next shape through a low-voltage current that illuminates the enclosed LED so the structures light up. The lights have three settings: on, blinking, and super-fast blinking. The triangle power base can be used with an AC adapter, sold separately, or with batteries. Leave the base plugged in and the Laser Pegs are designed to last up to 11 years. Laser Pegs pieces are compatible with other major building blocks sets, so you can add colorful light to other creations. The Laser Pegs pieces are 100 percent recyclable.
Why It’s Fun
Kids who like construction play will enjoy the illumination and open-ended building play in the Laser Pegs 6 in 1 Lighted Construction Set. Kids can light up whatever model they choose to build and use the structure as a nightlight.
We found this building set easy to put together and very sturdy. However, the finished product was a little bulky because of the triangle power base. If you don't want your creations to light up, you can always remove the triangle power base, but that sort of defeats the purpose of Laser Pegs.
Who It’s For
The Laser Pegs Alien Bug is for ages 5 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
Three AA batteries are included, but they are for the in-store try-me purposes. Laser Pegs recommends replacing them before you play for best results.
