I remember growing up, I was into LEGOs. Like, really into them. I remember one Christmas, sneaking into my stuffed stocking in the middle of the night and seeing a LEGO box ready for me in the morning. What a great gift and what a sleepless night for a child! Great memories. But alas, there is something I fear may be missing that has to do with the way we learn these days.
I wonder if tactile learning is going to be a staple of the way children, nowadays and in the future, will learn and grow. With the manner in which technology influences our lives, I believe that children still need to learn by touching, placing, building and creating…something that LEGOs provide in spades. That’s why I am excited to talk to you about the LEGO Hero Factory.
The Hero Factory gives you an opportunity to create your own LEGO heroes. Young or old, there is something for everyone to generate. The Hero Factory allows you to build comics, create games and yes, they even mix in modern technology…”there’s an app for that!” See pics, watch videos, create and share your designs and learn more about the Hero Factory story. This is big. There is even a movie in development at Universal about these heroes!
There are also a multitude of cool videos that users have generated to support this project. I’ve included one below that I am sure you will recognize the humor in and enjoy! Cool.
LEGOs will always be a fun way to learn. I am glad to see that several years down the road from my youth that these building blocks can still play an important role in the growth and development of a creative mind. LEGO remains an important and innovative brand in the creative process of kids (and adults)!
