The Batman Lego Movie: Lego Mini Batwing
The Babe scored this little bonus pack that includes The Mini Batwing from the Lego Batman movie as the VIP Club 'free' gift along with a recent Lego purchase. I say 'free' in quotes because while it *is* free, that's because we bought the sets directly from the Lego store, which gives us VIP points and little free sets like this. They don't, however, have the best prices. You can go on Target and compare prices on just about any recent set and see that Target has it a few bucks cheaper. But...you don't get the points and the little things like this. So, since the kids are so young and it seems like we're just entering our Lego years, I've decided to play the long-game and go with the VIP points program. See this brickvesting post for some details. (btw...brickvesting? Like investing in Legos??? Seriously? Maybe that's how I can convince Nat to let us buy more! Honey....we're investing in our future!!)
The Babe seems to be hanging in the Lego Friends series while The Bird has been successfully steered towards Lego Juniors (which are right in between Duplos and Legos. They're actually normal Legos, but the sets are easier to assemble and don't require the contorting of your hands into little spaces and such...).
Hoping that this is the gateway drug that gets the girls away from Lego Friends and towards the Creator series. Will try to post a follow-up once she builds this 80 piece set.
