Book Review: Lego Power

The Lego Power Functions Idea Book, Machines & Mechanisms Vol. 1 & The Lego Power Functions Idea Book, Cars & Contraptions Vol. 2

legoThese amazing two lego books are for all lego lovers, all ages and everyone who has ever built, created or imagined what can be done with legos.

Volume 1, Machines & Mechanisms illustrates technic gears, motors, gadgets plus other moving elements. There are hundreds of clever, buildable projects, such as sliding doors, grasping claws, and ball-shooting devices. Each model includes a list of the needed parts and a full page color illustrated photograph that will guide you without the need for step-by-step instructions.

Volume 2, Cars & Contraptions again illustrates lego technic gears, motors, gadgets & other moving items. You will learn how to build the following small projects:

  • Driving wheels with a motor
  • Four-wheel drive cars
  • Crawlers
  • Cars that spin something & cars that move something
  • Cars with suspension
  • Cool cars
  • Four-legged walkers
  • Moving like an inchworm
  • Changeover mechanisms using a switch
  • Transmissions

Each model includes a numbered colored parts list at the top and/or side of the left page with beautiful full-color photographs which guide you through the building process without needing step-by-step instructions.

I enthusiastically and with much happiness recommend these two lego books to everyone who enjoys and creates small lego projects!
