What sort of models are you looking at?

I thought lego can be a free expression of the child's imagination.

Both my boys play lego. I find the pictorial instructions in the manual easy to understand and follow.

Are you not referring to those lego sets that come with pictorial instructions and with recommended age group?

oic. Each lego set comes with an easy to follow picturiol instruction manual. As long as you buy the appropriate age group, it shld not be a prob. A young child might still need some parental help to learn how to interpret the pics if this is his 1st lego set. And sometimes need the strength to press pieces together.

Ask the Secret Chamber. Its a lego shop at holland village, Parkway parade, Thomson. I know they have lego courses, but its not just for building with instruction...it incorporates robotics, programing...etc with lego. I didn't send my own children they are still very young. But I heard that the kids are trained and even go for competitions.
