Lego Space Alien Mothership

The Lego Alien Conquest series has been around for a while now. All of its sets are based on outer space, and incorporate cool features like alien figurines and moving parts. One of the latest sets in the range is the Lego Space Alien Mothership: a UFO that spins around before abducting an unwitting reporter.

Features Of The Lego Space Alien Mothership

* Large UFO model,
* Outer spinning disc on the UFO,
* UFO makes a sound when you spin it,
* Abducting claw in UFO can pick up Lego minifigures,
* Comes with reporter and Alien Commander minifigures,
* 416 pieces in total,
* Suitable for ages 8-14,
* 19 x 19 x 4 inches in size.

Is The Lego Space Alien Mothership Worth Buying For Your Child?

Compared to the other sets in the Alien Conquest range, this particular set is one of the most expensive. That said, for roughly $70-$100 (depending on where you buy from), you’re getting a big Lego set comparable to some of the more expensive toys out there. It’s got plenty of pieces and features to keep kids occupied for a while.

The spaceship ends up around 19 inches wide once it’s all been built, which makes it perfect for flying around the room (it has a handle to make this easy). The cockpit dome is also bigger than on comparable Lego sets, and the Alien Commander figurine is something unique and special to this set.

If you’ve got a child aged eight or older who loves anything to do with space then the chances are this set is going to make them happy. Aside from the fun of putting it together, features like the abduction claw, alien commander figurine and the spinning disc make this really fun to play with. It’s also pretty durable, but you’ll need to be careful with the antennas.

Although the sound brick is fun for a while, some reviewers have commented on the fact that the spinning sound quickly got annoying after playing with it for a while. It is possible to deactivate the sound by rebuilding the set with the sound brick facing downwards instead of upwards, however.

In short, the Lego Space Alien Mothership set may be considered a little expensive, but it’s still a very big and challenging set, perfect for children between the ages of eight and fourteen. It’s even been picked by Toy Insider as one of the hot holiday toys for 2011, so you know it’s going to be popular with kids!

LEGO Minotaurus Game

“If you build it, they will play.”

The LEGO Minotaurus Game combines the fun of building with LEGOS with a board game the entire family can enjoy together.

The Minotaur is a mythical creature who is half ox and a half human—he protects the hidden temple inside the labyrinth. Your job in this game is to navigate the labyrinth, find the temple, and avoid or defeat the Minotaur.

As in other LEGO games, you start by assembling the LEGO pieces to create the game board. It is played by 2 to 4 players and each player is represented by a hero figure. Your hero will face different challenges and obstacles as he races against opponents to be the first to make it to the temple. As you travel through the labyrinth you’ll need to block the path behind you by building walls. This forces your opponents to take a different route – slowing them down so that you find your way to the Minotaur before they do.

The LEGO Minotaurus Game is recommended for children ages 7 and up. The rules are very clear and simple so that the entire family easily understand them and play. Many families enjoy making up their own rules and challenges—that just adds to the fun of the game! A typical game lasts about 30 minutes, making this an entertaining game you can enjoy during family game night.

The LEGO Minotaurus Game contains small parts, including a marble and 224 small LEGO pieces, so it is not appropriate for children under the age of 3.

Your whole family will have fun building and playing with the LEGO Minotaurus Game, and it will keep your kids occupied for hours.
