Legos are among the coolest toys for kids and they have been for decades. From building the kits that the company sells to simply working with a bucket of parts to make something unique and all your own, Legos are the kinds of toys that promote creativity, experimentation, and they breed the gearheads of tomorrow. They have kits that little kids can assemble and then they have kits that big kids like us can assemble. The Technic series of kits skew toward the more experienced builder but they also often have little electric motors and the vehicles you build can do stuff. For instance, this logging truck can use its grappling arm to load the logs onto its back before you drive off the “job site”.
We’re not sure why but watching this Lego Technic logging truck assemble itself from the start of the frame rails on is pretty fun. We’re guessing it is the same gearhead nature that you all have as well in the fact that seeing how things work or how they look in the assembly phase is fascinating. If you were sitting down at a table to get this build done right, we’re sure if would have to be a large time investment to actually finish it. Now imagine that same process ut having to stop and take photos every time you so much as look at one of the parts. There’s got to be days and days of labor into getting this whole thing right.
The build itself it awesome and we’re thinking that one of these suckers needs to end up under the Christmas tree for the boys next year. Press play and then answer the trivia below!
