Laser Pegs are similar to a lot of toy building blocks on the market, but you build lighted creations with these blocks. Each kit has 72 blocks, and each block has an LED light and low-voltage circuitry; the power supply in the base makes your creations glow with light. There are a variety of kits that range in price from about $13 to $50. You can build robots, little Hot Wheels-type cars or fancy drag-racers, or air craft. There are even licensed MLB and NFL kits. You can build the featured toy and several other designs with the included blocks. You can add fun accessories, like letter blocks or even a powered necklace that will turn a block into a lighted “jewel”. You can even purchase a powered Play Table ($299.99) that comes complete with 150 blocks; you’ll only need to add your imagination. These would make great holiday gifts for kids of any age or gender.
