I got this book for my son because he is such a Lego fan. He loved being able to see Lego sets from before his time. He has spent many hours looking at and reading this book. I recommend this for any Lego fan.

My 10 year old son is a huge lego fan. I gave him this book for Christmas and he hasn't put it down yet. He loves seeing all the pictures of past lego sets and enjoys reading about the history. I give it 5 stars.

My Lego loving boys received this as a Christmas gift and they are constantly reading it. It's a coffee table book at our house. My kids think this book is awesome. It shows the history of Lego and every set they have produced with large, colorful pictures.

I bought this book for my 7 year old son because he absolutely loves Legos. We looked through it together and found the most interesting and informative facts about Legos that we had not know before reading this book. It has so much incredible information about the history of Legos. The reading was easy to follow and the pictures were amazing. I would definitely recommend this book (actually there were 2 of them - one about minifigs...AWESOME!!! The minifigs book follows the history of minifigs and shows how they actually started, what they looked like from the beginning and what they looked like throughout the years) to anyone that loves Legos (even if you don't, you'll read some interesting facts)!!!

Very entertaining and a wonderful reference guide to the world of LEGO. A book you'll revisit more than a few times. Also, check out LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary ~ it's fantastic and even comes with an exclusive mini figure.

Our 12-year-old son is a big Lego fan and has many of the previous Lego books. He received this for a Christmas gift and loves it because they always put something new and different in there.

We purchased this book set for my son for his 9th birthday. He has all of the other lego books that are out there. He has absolutely loved it! He was very excited to read about the Lego discovery center in Illinois. We went there a few days after receiving the book and he thought it was very cool that he already knew what to expect. The book about the mini figures is very informative also. Minifigures are the best part of lego sets in our mind so to be able to seee a history of the mini figure as well as all the specialty ones was very interested. Overall a good purchase for a lego fanatic. Great pictures and can keep even a nonreader occupied for many an hour.

I bought 2 of these books for my boys who are 18 and 23. They loved it. They went through the whole book page by page remembering what sets they have and what sets they always wanted. I Know they give it an A+!

I bought this book for my 11 year old who is my biggest Lego fan in the house. He locves and now my 9 year old is all in it. Good book Lego!

I bought this book as a Christmas present for my 11 year old nephew. He didn't want to open any other gifts after getting these two fabulous books. He was hooked. Granted it's not exactly reading material - he just looks at the pictures for the most part. But it was great to see him with a book in his hand versus the Wii controls. He loves this book and now has a list of all the Legos he wants for the next fifty or so holidays. It was worth the $25 to put the smile on his face.

We gave this book to our 10 year old grandson for Christmas, it was on his "list". The smiles have not stopped from his joy of the book. His dad also enjoys this book, so, not just for kids. It is a good solid book with the cover being very strong. If you are into the history of Legos and/or want to see everything they have made, this is the book for you.

Both my sons (under 10 yrs old) love these 2 books, one on the LEGO people and one on the different LEGO sets,etc over the years...its great for any age kid (even adult) who wants to learn about these wonderful toys..Great pictures and interesting info..very comprehensive..It keeps them entertained for hours at a time.

Purchased this as a Christmas present for my son and he loves it. He's loves checking out all of the set and especially the mini-figures it displays. He uses it to get ideas for things to build with the sets he has. I know it has been a big hit with his friends that play with Legos also.

My 12 year old son has been a Lego fan for his whole life. He loves to build and collect Lego sets, and is very interested in the design and engineering behind the complex models. He reads Lego magazines like a collector series. So this book set, which shows the history and development of Legos, and especially the companion book with Minifigures through the ages, is both instructive as well as nostalgic for him. He received this as a gift, and I would guess he will keep it for his future children!

I purchased this LEGO Book (set of two) for my 8 year old grandson as a Christmas gift. Once he saw the book his nose was in it all day. (He did take timeout to eat!!) Since then he has become more involved in creating his own designs. It is a little expensive but I would highly recommend this book for any child who loves working on LEGOS.

If you like Legos, this is the book set for you! One book shows the history of Legos, and many of the sets through the years. The second book shows more minifigures than you can imagine!
