Everybody is making list of stocking stuffers right now. Of course. So, I’m joining in. Here’s my list of 6 LEGO® Stocking Stuffers. All of these you can get from our store, though you’ll have to buy the pieces individually. (links go directly to the item in our bricklink.com store)
Doots & Stud Shooters
Yep, just 1×1 round plates. Stud shooters fire them, they are small, and they are easy to lose. Get several stud shooters, and a bag of doots and your child is set to shoot down all the bad guy minifigs. Oh, yeah, feel free to get a few minifigs and maybe even build your own!
Little Man loves these spring shooters. If asked, he says “they are awesome!” and he will say it loudly. We’ve got the ammunition in several colors so get a few spring shooters and a bag of ammunition.
Flick Missiles & Technic Bricks
Can you tell Little Man loves things that fly through the air? Yep, these are his most recent discovery in LEGO bits that fly (actually fly, not pretend fly). You can attach things to the front of the flick missile to make it look more like a missile… or whatever your heart desires. So, a small bag of flick missiles and a technic brick to flick it out of.
Disk Launchers & Tiles
Yep, something else that flies. Get a few disk launchers and a slew of 2×2 round tiles.
Gears & Axles
More things that move! Gears will fit together, use the axles to turn them. Mix and match with lift arms and pins!
Lift Arms & Pins
I had a kid ask me one time if we sold “mindstorm” pieces. After a bit of conversation, I figured out he wanted to know if we had lift arms and pins. Oh, yes we do! Pins, in particular, are very cheap…. and easy to lose. I suspect any child who enjoys mindstorm will appreciate a small bag of 500 of the basic black 2 long pin. If you child likes to build things that move, lift arms and pins are necessary. Great Ball Contraptions use quite a few of these parts.
Oh, my. A few more ideas came up last minute…. wheels and competition cannons (2 parts… this and this). Check them out!
I love the idea of giving my child the tools to create as he desires. We have provided a variety of different toys that fill this category, and, honestly, LEGO® fits in there too.
