Lego Star Wars

It’s pretty safe to say that my almost 6-year old son is a Star Wars fanatic. My husband introduced it to him a few months ago, and ever since then it’s been Star Wars everything. Every time we go to the bookstore, he wants a new Star Wars book. He is now collecting everything Star Wars he can find! He just LOVES it! All of it! This past Christmas he got many LEGO® toys and Star Wars toys; and when you combine the two it’s like gold! You definitely have his interest. He’s enjoyed playing with LEGO® toys for a long time, and now he can get LEGO® Star Wars toys! How cool!

He’s continually talking to me about the characters and telling me how they relate to each other. I don’t usually know everything he is talking about, but I found the awesome LEGO® Channel on YouTube where we could sit together and watch some clips. I knew this would be a safe site to view videos on YouTube because it’s brought to you by LEGO®. My son knows he is not allowed on YouTube without parental supervision, so it’s always a treat for him when he can watch it with me.

We watched some very cool clips together and had a little son and mother time. He told me about some of the characters and was fully engaged in the videos. It was great! Then I noticed something super cool! I could actually make my own playlist and save it for him to watch! Wow! How great is that?

LEGO Star Wars YouTube Channel

He Loves his LEGO® Star Wars™ Playlist!

Check out the short clip below to see how clear and entertaining the video clips are to watch:

I just started working 40 hours a week from home, and some of that includes phone conversations while he is at home with me after kindergarten. I am doing my very best to balance my schedule of working and being a mom at home for my kids too. It’s tough, but I am committed to making it work. I do feel bad when I have to ask him to wait for mom to get done with a call before he can ask me for anything. What a great treat this would be for him to watch the videos he loves and I know he’ll be on YouTube safely. My training calls last about 30 minutes, so I decided to upload 10 LEGO® Star Wars video clips to total 30:44. Perfect! Now he can treat phone call time as “fun time” for him. And once he’s ready for some new clips I can always make a new playlist for him! They are super easy to make! Check out the infographic below:

  • The new  LEGO® YouTube channel has over 500 videos from a name you trust with more videos being added daily! We are looking forward to seeing the new ones they upload!
  • Custom playlists are an easy way to build something special just for you and your child. We had some fun son and mother time! You can do that with your kids too!
  • Playlists are easily made from the Official LEGO Channel and can be accessed anywhere you go by parents and children (in the car, at an airport, waiting in line, around the house, etc.) ~ Just think of how handy this is for a long car ride or for a flight! Love that!

Here is the playlist we created! Feel free to check it out and use it! It’s all LEGO® Star Wars clips (of course), so remember you can see much more on the Official LEGO® Channel.
