It’s not really much of a stretch to think that LEGO products will be a hot holiday product. They are every year. But it’s been a while since LEGO released a new line so I was excited to see these LEGO Dot products hit the market. When I went to the store to check them out I was pleased to find prices as low as under $5 and that most items have some sort of PURPOSE where they might not end up in a giant bucket of LEGO pieces. So I grabbed this LEGO Dots Animal Picture Holders to review for you!

LEGO Dots Animal Picture Holders Review
This set was priced around $15 and I grabbed it since there were three projects inside. I also wanted something a little more gender neutral since I wasn’t sure who I would have reviewing these for me. From the packaging and projects I would say the LEGO Dot marketing is absolutely targeting the female demographic- lots of pastels, jewelry boxes and bracelets.
The kit comes with a reuseable tray (so you can redecorate the holders as many times as you want) with a snap on lid.
It also comes with directions (as most LEGO products to) which revealed the only problem I found with this kit. We ended up having to cut up the directions because no way were multiple kids going to share the directions without a fight. Each got their own strip.
Additionally for some reason LEGO decided to throw all the pieces for the base of the holders in one big bag instead of three small ones. So an adult had to get in there and split them up before they went flying with little hands. The rest of the pieces go in the tray so they can be creative.
My volunteers R (age 10) and M (age 8) were more than happy to dive right in. Both were well versed in LEGO so they put together the base probably faster than I could have.
Since there were three projects their dad TJ decided to step in and do the third one. You know… help the kids out.
Once the base is put together you get to be creative. The eyes are the only direction to follow and then all the colors, shapes and sizes are up to you!
R grabbed the tray so she could pull out what she wanted!
We ended with what was supposed to be a rabbit! Or a cat! Or a dog!
Everyone agreed this was a dog.
I actually got a llama vibe off this one. You can see on the side you use all the different colors to make patterns and create whatever you like!
This gives you an idea of the size relative to the picture holder. They were smaller than I expected but SUPER cute. We got thumbs up from everyone that this was fun and they have more pieces for later if they want to switch them out!
Where to Buy LEGO Dot Products
As you can imagine there is no shortage of places to grab these LEGO Dot products. They range in price from some of the single bracelets priced under $5 and the bigger kits for $25. The pieces are VERY tiny so please be careful if you have little ones around the house. I would say ages five and up would be a good fit for that depending on how much the adults in the room want to help.
