We are huge lego fans. I think that many homeschoolers are. Mainly because they really provide a wealth of opportunities to encourage creativity, and can complement almost any subject: math, science, art, etc.
And I am especially happy whenever I find products (especially by companies I like) that promote a global outlook. This 16 piece set represents families from around the world. By role-playing with these figures, students learn to appreciate and respect cultural and generational differences, developing an awareness for the multicultural society in which they live. I like the idea of being able to use these people to either reinforce geography lessons, or maybe even to supplement some of the books that we read.
