Is it a good gift for my friend's 3-year old kid?
from my personal experience. I intoduced Lego to both my kids at 4. Neither really took much interest until a few months past 5 when they actually started being "creative" and could actually sit for a meaningful period of time with the lego box.

As I type this, my 3-and-a-half year old is sitting across the table from me, creating some type of Lego car wash with the two 900pc sets I grabbed from Walmart. I also combined a couple more Creative boxes from BF a few years back.

The kid loves building and coming up with new ideas, so I guess YMMV on whether age affects interest in Lego!

Yeah I think around 5-6 or even a bit older is when they develop the patience to sit there and complete a full lego set. 3 yrs old is too young in my opinion and some of them are still likely enough to swallow small pieces.

Side note was anyone able to get the Walmart 900 piece set? It seems to be sold out now.

Depends how old - I wouldn't trust my son with it and he's a month shy from 3

If I am 100 or 105 and want to play with this lego set...who is going to stop me?
You know they put 99 because 100 or more would have wasted another letter print right?

I ordered two. When I tried three or more, it said OOS in the cart.

Haven't received the dreaded cancellation email yet.

IMO, 900pcs is just too much and parents such as myself prefer to buy smaller sets.
Or leave some in the box when they inevitably lose pieces so you can replace them.

That's the proper way to provide such feedback. Unusual on this forum.
Thanks... my intention was to offer a constructive (get it, Lego? :facepalm: ) comment about a possible savings/deal and was in no way any reflection on the OP. As a matter of fact, if not for the OP posting, this information may not have made it here at all! Winking Face

I think that the point of RFD is to help each other find a great deal... IMHO, negative feedback is not necessarily helping. Just my 2 cents. Smiling Face With Open Mouth

I think 3 year old is too young, if you want to get them lego, I would look at the Duplo Lego which is Lego meant for younger children.

well, I suppose I'm not a parent such as yourself Winking Face
I find this 900pc set is actually not enough to make much...it includes many small bits and pieces, not a whole lot of "brick" and larger pieces. If your kids like to get creative, you need like wheels and windows and baseplates. Imo, both the Walmart set and the medium box are a good "starter" together. The small sets are good for learning to follow the booklets though....
Yes, the 900 pc set is more of an "accessory set". So many tiny tiny pieces. I got 2 for my kid, and he usually just uses the bigger blocks. I'll have to look for a big block set to keep his creative imagination going.

They could just put 4+ and save 2 more characters

But it wont be as quirky as the implication of "you're never too old" that they get from putting 99 there.
