Recommended age:   3 year-old ++ 

Who would love this: Kids that love to build and create 

You might have seen my recent review on “Imaginary Fauna - Jungle” from Lekkid. It’s playful and fascinating in so many ways! Today, let’s talk about “Imaginary Fauna - Desert” - a compatible Lekkid building set that would guarantee to captivate both kids and grown-ups! 

Why I love ❤️ this toy: 

(1) 22 Magnetic Pieces To Create Imaginary Creatures & Objects 

This set includes 22 magnetic pieces in a yellow cylindrical storage box. It has parts that can make a range of interesting creations - elephant, birds, camels, and other imaginary (and silly) creatures or objects. There is a wooden curvy-shaped piece that resembles an elephant trunk (or a “Mermaid tail” 🧜‍♀️ according to my girl), a flat-piece “hump” for the camel, a unique piece that looks like a pair of “phoenix wings” (or gorgeous antlers for a moose), a clear yellow part like a pair of antennae for honeybee, a blue “propeller” part that can be used for jet plane, pieces for legs, and our kids’s favourite red “fire”. The storage box says we can create “500,000 desert creatures” with the set - I can’t verify that, and I doubt the statement is referring to 500,000 real form of living species. Having said that, the kids are having GREAT fun building numerous wild, impossible, never-seen-before, and outlandish objects! It’s a toy with BIG possibilities to unleash our unstoppable creativity! 

(2) Beautiful Natural Beech Wood + Playful Acrylic Pieces 

it’s incredible to watch the beautiful interaction between two materials - the solidness of natural beech wood AND the playfulness of light shining through the translucent acrylic pieces. 

(3) Magnetic Polarity - Enhances Problem Solving Skills 

Similar to the Jungle set, the pieces can be interconnected by magnets, and dealing with polarity is an integral part of the fun. The kids need to constantly adjust and test out the pieces from both ends to fit the parts together to form their invented models. I was initially worried that the kids might get frustrated with the challenge, but as it turned out - the kids didn’t mind a bit. They’re loving the experience and problem-solving opportunity! 

(4) Conforms To Toy Safety Standard 

Lekkid is designed in Barcelona. The toy conforms to international standard of toy safety including ASTM F963 and EN71. This is an exciting toy that we really love.
