Laser Pegs - New Sets and App for 2013 and 2014

Laser Pegs is a range of light-up construction block kits that allow kids to build models including vehicles and fantasy creatures that are made from translucent plastic and light up when built onto a powered base.

The Laser Pegs brand is busy with new products and apps for 2013 and 2014. There's a new Laser Pegs app for the iPad, Laser Pegs NFL sets coming out in July 2013 and a teaser for a new ZippyDo range for 2014.

Let's take a look at what Laser Pegs are up to.

Laser Pegs App

The Laser Pegs App for iPad and Android allows kids to build virtual Laser Pegs models. They can select, rotate and position colored blocks that match the ones in their sets.

There's a 3D coloring book where kids can color in one of the included models.

There are features for creating instruction manuals for your own laser pegs design and sharing them with others.

The app also supports the educational Laser Pegs letter and number blocks.

Oh and it's a free app too.

Laser Pegs NFL

Laser Pegs have recently announced a new range of officially endorsed NFL Series sets which have a release date of July 7th.

These are football-themed sets that include large buildable player figures with moulded parts and posable joints. And of course, they light up.

Each set comes with instructions to make multiple models from the included pieces - you can only make one model at a time. Getting instructions for multiple models is definitely a good thing, it really adds to the value of a construction set, especially for kids who enjoy the building process as much as, or more than the finished toy.

The sets are not team specific, instead they come with a set of stickers that you can use to customize the pieces with your favorite team (and maybe worthy opponents if you have multiple sets.)

The sets are powered by an included triangle power base. 

There are three sets available in the NFL range:
  1. NFL 001 6-in-1
  2. NFL 002 12-in-1
  3. NFL 003 24-in-1

Laser Pegs Zippy Do

Laser Pegs has hinted at a new range called Zippy Do. The latest teaser mentions ZippyDo Sidekicks and show a range of brightly colored figures called: Bash, Target, Apple, Eros, Cosmo and Pops.

The latest post says that the ZippyDo Sidekicks range will be available in early 2014. A previous post said September 2013 for Zippy Do and showed a range of small vehicles - it looks like they might have the lighting system built in rather than needed a base, but it's not clear. We'll have to wait and see.
