Really engaging and good to build up fine motor skills for pre-schoolers . Easy to use and amazing creations can be done .
We received this Basic 101 set in exchange for our honest review.
Our boy is officially a HUGE LaQ fan! He loves all his cool and spectacular 3D models, but he also enjoys building quick and easy 2D models for his little sister. If you intend to explore and test out LaQ for the first time, this Basic 101 might be an excellent start! The recommended age for this set is 5-year-old, but I think a 3-year-old would be able to accomplish most of the flat 2D models without much difficulties.
Why I love ❤️ this toy: (1) This set includes 185 pieces and two double-sided instruction sheets. What I love most is that the instruction sheets show images in actual life size 2D diagram, so the kids can easily identify and match the LaQ pieces. This set comes with two shapes (square and triangle) and two connectors of different widths. It provides beginners an introductory understanding and chance to familiarise themselves with the basic construction process (shape + connector + shape…) before moving on to the more complicated building structures. My five-year-old started his LaQ journey with this set. He is intrigued by the snapping sound when the pieces clicked and connected securely together in a snap.
(2) We love the wide variety of models that can be built using the pieces in this basic beginner set: the boy’s absolute favourite dinosaurs, vehicles (fire truck, ambulance, rocket, and even a UFO!), a robot, animals (crab, giraffe, elephant, turtle, penguin etc), bouquet of flowers, butterfly, and many more. There is a total of 46 2D images to keep the kids busy and creative. (3) The pieces come in 10 exciting colours. My personal favourites are the special “pastel” shades, i.e baby blue, baby pink, and light green. These are fantastic addition to the other LaQ construction sets if you would like some bright unique pieces of different colours!
Thank you LaQ for providing this really remarkable toy for my review. This is a real quality, made-in-Japan product that I highly recommend!
I purchased the LaQ basic set 101 for my granddaughter’s (5) Christmas, so I can’t comment on what it is like yet. I am sure she will get a lot of pleasure out of it, going by all the other great reviews it has had. It was a pleasure to deal with Smartypants, it was such an easy process. I wouldn’t hesitate to make another order from them.
