Lego Technic sets are highly anticipated releases because of their realism and their difficulty levels. Pictures of the newest Technic models have been floating around since the holidays, and we finally have an idea of what’s coming up on August 1, 2018. Let’s take a look.
Your child needs to learn numbers and money. You could sit them down at the table and drill numbers, but what kid whats that? Instead, offer them a toy that gets them to practice those number skills without realizing that’s what they’re doing.
Cash register toys are excellent ways for kids to get those math skills early on while having fun. Kids that use dramatic play to learn are more likely to retain that information. Plus, you won’t spend any time arguing with a kid that doesn’t want to be at “school” while they’re home.
We’ve compiled a list of our favorite toy cash registers suitable for a range of abilities and ages. We’ve also given you some advice for choosing the right type of register for your child. Let’s take a look.
There’s nothing more interesting than cars and tracks. Toy parking garage are a chance for your child to live out his or her dreams of running cars and being a mechanic.
Play garages come in all shapes and sizes. It’s important to give kids toys that encourage active imaginations and possibly some STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) skills. Many of them are durable toys that will become heirlooms later.
How Do You Find the Best Toy Garage?
Toddlers benefit from toy car garages by learning early math skill such as counting parking spaces, and hand-eye coordination lining up cars along the track so they ride down smoothly. Older children can assemble their own sets and work on even more significant areas of hand-eye coordination with smaller cars and tracks.
Middle school kids can use sets like Lego not only to build their own garages but customize features and design new structures, which encourages critical thinking skills and engineering thinking.
We’ve put together a list of our favorite parking garage toys plus a few suggestions for how to choose the best one. Let’s take a look.
Remember standing in the kitchen cooking with your mom or grandma as a kid? Did they let you stir the batter or taste the sauce before putting things in the oven?

Parents, put aside your fears of stepping on a Lego and think back to when Legos were the coolest toy you could have. Do you remember?
Legos are classics. Now, Lego Technic sets allow your child (or you!) to build bigger, more realistic vehicles. You can build anything from an offroad racer to a mining excavator to an enormous, four foot, working crane. The possibilities are endless.
Lego makes this possible by using interconnecting rods and plastic pieces that mimic the real thing. No more boxy bricks. Real engineers design the look, and motors bring the finished vehicle to life. Kids get hands-on experience with engineering and mechanical thinking.
No matter what your child loves, there’s a Technic vehicle that satisfies his or her dreams. We’ve put together a list of the best Lego Technic sets to help you get started. Let’s take a look.
