LEGO’s here to unlock CdeO’s creativity

In case you didn’t know, the word “lego” is an abbreviation of two Danish words, “leg godt,” which means “play well.” In Latin, the word means “I put together.” The Danish company was founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen, a carpenter.

The founder’s dream was to “inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow.

With toys? How?

Well, for one, playing with LEGO teaches kids to think in three dimensions. It develops their problem-solving skills, organization, and planning by construction. For the little ones, it will boost their motor development. It also improves literacy and communication as kids work through the instructions. Amazing so far, right?

Here’s a glimpse of the early LEGO creations…

In 1947, plastic blocks were introduced and as time went by different models and sets came out. LEGO creations has then become a form of storytelling for some. May it be in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Architecture – anything a kid (and adult) can imagine it can definitely be made. These legendary toys have made so much difference ever-since their creation!

 

And now, our city has a store! The First CERTIFIED Store in Mindanao. What does that mean? It means the store doesn’t just sell LEGO’s, they have a much fun setup. They have a Pick-a-Brick wall in the store where shoppers can hand-pick the parts that they need, they have fully assembled LEGO sets around the store for inspiration (not just the usual stacked boxes on display), an interactive play area in the center of the store for the kids to have a “hands-on, minds-on” experience with LEGO bricks, and exclusive sets not available in other stores. Below are some photos.

They have 4 different designs – NinjaGO, LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Friends, and LEGO Duplo lines. You get to have fun and help children along the way.

Go now and visit them at the Ground floor of Ayala Centrio Mall. They are open from Monday to Sundays from 10 AM – 9 PM.
