LEGOs are great fun but expensive. This book creates hours of fun, new worlds and new toys from the collection of LEGOs kids already have. Each project includes a parts list so you can verify that you have all the pieces and even buy supplemental pieces if you want, but most projects avoid specialty pieces and feature ones likely to be in most people's collections. The book engages kids with fun, kid-friendly language and cool facts about the things they are making. Like other popular LEGO idea books, our book is packed with characters and life-like scenes, but takes the next step with detailed step-by-step instruction photos to help kids build more complex animals, robots, vehicles and buildings. The book features full-size photos of life-like scenes that are simple enough for kids to build on their own. Also included are a few no-instruction challenges where kids can create a unique toy using only the photo as inspiration. Frugal Fun with LEGO Creations is the perfect play-time guide for parents, relatives, siblings and care-takers, and the activities are also simple enough that kids can create and play independently. This family-friendly book is sure to spark the imagination of your kids and keep them entertained for hours.

The LEGO Technic Idea Book Simple Machines Book Excerpt:

The LEGO® Technic Idea Book: Simple Machines is a collection of hundreds of working examples of simple yet fascinating Technic models that you can build based on their pictures alone. Each project uses color-coded pieces and is photographed from multiple angles, making it easy to see how the models are assembled without the need for step-by-step instructions. Every model illustrates a different principle, concept, or mechanism that will inspire your own original creations. You’re encouraged to use these elements as building blocks to create your own masterpieces. The Technic models in Simple Machines demonstrate basic configurations of gears, shafts, pulleys, turntables, connectors, and the like. You'll learn how to create small, elegant machines like cranes, operable doors, motorized cars, a rubber band-powered rocket launcher, a hand-cranked drag racer, and even musical instruments. This visual guide, the first in the three-volume LEGO Technic Idea Book series, is the brainchild of master builder Yoshihito Isogawa of Tokyo, Japan. Each title is filled with photos of Isogawa's unique models, all of which are designed to fire the imaginations of LEGO builders young and old. Imagine. Create. Invent. Now, what will you build? NOTE: The LEGO Technic Idea Book series uses parts from various Technic sets. If you don't have some of the pieces shown in a particular model, experiment by substituting your own parts or visit the author's website for a list of the special parts used in the book.

LEGO Guns is packed with building instructions for five impressive looking "weapons" built entirely from LEGO TECHNIC parts.

With the help of a bit of sanding, some rubber bands, and Krazy Glue, each gun actually shoots LEGO bricks at high speed, with surprising accuracy. The building instructions for each model are easy to follow and include detailed parts lists. LEGO Guns also includes sections discussing the general concepts of LEGO gun design and offers practical building tips and tricks. The models range from sophisticated to easy, and readers of all ages will find something enjoyable to build and play with.
