LED lights give everything the Midas touch. Not only are they energy-efficient and long-lasting, but they are also brighter than incandescent and fluorescent lights. GeekAlert fans who liked the LED Art Cube Light, TIX LED Clock and Ferris WheeLED Bike Light might also give a nod to the Laser Pegs 3 in 1 Build Kit.

Lots of electronic toys are battery guzzlers, but not this one. The Laser Pegs set, which comes with 3AAA batteries, will allegedly give you 100,000 hours of light. So even if you forget to turn them off for a decade or so, the lights ought to still be shining. The instructions provide details on how to build the Mini Monster Bug, the Tractor, and the Dune Buggy, (hence the 3-in-1) but just like any construction set, there are real no rules.
