My kids recently got to test out a super cool new building toy: Light Up Links! They are made with flexible little tubes, connectors, and bubbly modules that light up in different colors when you shake them. The basic kit comes with a whole set of parts to make cool toys and an instruction booklet that shows you just how to make them. But it’s easy to go beyond the book and make toys that come from your imagination.
My older son immediately set to work making a sphere. And then he made a sphere-within-a-sphere. He had a blast shaking it around and making it light up.
Meanwhile, the younger boy took the parts and had them battle each other in an imaginary war. So, there’s that.
You can only get Light Up Links by ordering them online for now, and there’s a special offer for two sets for only $19.99 plus shipping and handling. So get on it, parents! What a great gift for kids to get their brains working!
