Whatever Their Age, They Can Still Enjoy the Building Fun of LEGO!
If you’re looking for a LEGO gift for your child this Christmas, it can be challenging. There are a plethora of sets available but many are too complex or are only intended for older children. It can be especially tough if your child is very young and interested in Star Wars or Harry Potter and the sets they see are just too much. Well, this list will hopefully be of some help. From two and up to eight and up, these are five great sets with a range of age appropriateness and complexity. I’m sure you’ll find something they’ll adore here.
Who doesn’t love Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck? This adorable LEGO Duplo set is for ages two and up and comes complete with adorable miniature versions of our animated friends. Large and easily compatible blocks will let your little one build this set in countless ways. As always with LEGO, if it takes a tumble, they’ll get to put it back together again!
For ages four and up, this small version of Poe Dameron’s X-Wing is just complex enough to challenge your child but not so much that it’s impossible. This is a great choice if they already like Star Wars in some other form. After this set, they can graduate to even bigger and better Star Wars sets, of which there are many.
There’s not a lot of gifts better than the gift of imagination and that’s basically what this is, imagination in a box. Here you have three hundred LEGO pieces of all shapes and sizes. Your kid can make anything they can dream up and subsequently destroy it with glee. I can personally attest to the power something like this gives to a young child. To be able to make anything and everything without rules or instructions is the ultimate creative freedom.
This set for ages seven and up is a who’s who of the Marvel universe. For a set this size, it’s impressive that it comes with three Minifigures. Having Spider-Man to play with, not to mention Ghost Rider and the villainous Carnage will let your child come up with all kinds of scenarios. The cool yet simple car they’ll need to build will provide just the right amount of challenge. This is a great low-level set for any superhero-loving youngster.
With an age range of eight and up, this is the most advanced LEGO set on this list. It’s more like two sets in one though, a textbook that opens and transforms into a mini version of Professor Snape’s classroom. The age range is eight and up, but it’s still quite manageable at under three hundred pieces. This could be a magical little project to work on together.
