LEGO too ho hum? How about Playable Metal?

{ 3 comments }

If you’re bored with LEGO, how about checking out Playable Metal building sets. Playable Metal sets are made of an aluminum alloy and come in different colors and allow you to build 3 dimensional structures. The parts are connected together with special screws. YoYo.com offers a variety of sets that range in price from $34.95 – $74.95. YoYo offers a lot of different building toys that I’ve never heard of before. I tempted to pull out my credit card… How many of you still play with building toys?

    I do. I bought a Lego Mindstorms NXT set a couple years ago, and immediately went out and bought a second set. Then, last year, I bought a pair of the NXT 2.0 sets. Whenever I have a weekend off from work, and the wife/kids have other plans, I’ll spend hours being 10 years old again. It’s a blast being able to build four independent robots, and then program them to communicate with each other…
