LEGO TECHNIC ALLOWS TO PLAY AND LEARN, BOTH DURING INSTALLATION AND DURING THE GAME, BEING ABLE TO ACT ON EACH ELEMENT TO IMPROVE OR CHANGE THE MODEL ACCORDING TO YOUR OWN IMAGINATION.
The first time I’ve had to do with the LEGO Technic I was overjoyed, but at the same time a little scared because it totally changed my concept of LEGO Technic, there has been a complete turnaround in the way I play with Legos, from that moment I could build something that had a shape and a size closer to the real world that every day I had before my eyes, I was becoming great because LEGO Technic is a “large”.
I was dealing with mechanical elements, hollow bars, gear wheels, pneumatic parts and electric motors, just with the classic building blocks all the same.
Changing the way you play with LEGO also changes the complexity of things to build, for this Technic is suitable for children who have at least 9 years, and then nobody forbids us to play even younger kids, if they’re smart.
With LEGO Technic you can build new subjects, cars & bikes, work vehicles, cranes, bulldozers, airplanes, helicopters, trucks, and many other vehicles each with its own characteristics and movements, to be built by assembling together with gears, bricks objects, pins, following the instructions, which with Technic become even more complicated to understand.
New LEGO Technic now have the distinction of being also available in radio-controlled version with electric scooters that can transform the experience of playing with LEGO making significant progress.
LEGO Technic toys were born in 1975 when the Danish company decided to launch a line dedicated to children more experienced builders “which he called” Expert series “and that it also contained mechanical elements, this tells you how many years LEGO has committed itself to give a more interactive game already for many years.
After two years the series was renamed “Expert Builder” and introduced new elements such as the wheels, perforated dividing cross-bars, levers and racks that allowed you to build vehicles more and more like real ones and with new features such as being able to turn the wheels of each vehicle.
In 1982 the Expert series was renamed “Technic” and a few years later grew even pneumatics as the Pistons, while in the mid-80s Power Functions system was introduced which, thanks to a system of infrared, served to power vehicles and be able to control at a distance, in 1991 the 9V Technic motors were adapted to, the same as the series LEGO Train, this to make them more compatible.
The series has continued to evolve and improve over the years, right up to the last years models that could be considered real pieces of plane helicopter boat car.
