Review: Laser Pegs Runners Kit

At our house, we love building toys!  So my boys were very excited when we had the chance to try the Runners set from Laser Pegs.

Review: Laser Pegs Runners Kit

Laser Pegs are a collection of open-ended constructions sets that allow boys and girls to design creations that light up.  The Runners set comes with 2 laser pegs (one yellow and one green), 24 construction parts, and a power base.  The base can be turned on with lights only, or with lights and motion so that the vehicle can move.  When the vehicle is in motion, is does make a fair amount of noise, which was the only minor downside to this toy.

The Runners set is different than just buying a toy vehicle because it can be put together so many different ways.  The instructions show how to make 6 different models, but there are more options than that with a child’s imagination!  My sons also enjoyed the fact that Laser Pegs are compatible with pieces from other building sets.

The laser lights and the motion definitely add a fun spin to this building toy.  My sons had the idea to build a vehicle that could explore under the sofa and look for missing toys!  It’s always great to see them being creative, and toys that can be played with in several different ways encourage that.

The Laser Pegs Runners Car Kit sells for $14.99 online at LaserPegs.com and are also available at Target stores.

  • This looks like so much fun – love that it looks compatible with Legos and that it lights up. I think my son would love this toy!
