But don’t worry, because I know a great gift that my boys love, and your will too: a Lego Set. Lego sets are great because not only do kids get to build and create them, they also get to play with what they’ve created. And they can create something new and different too, sparking imagination and learning. To find the perfect set for your son, check out my review of The Top 5 Lego Sets for Boys this holiday season.
Also, included in the set are 3 mini figures: Lance Richmond, his sidekick Lance Bot and bad guy the Flamethrower. Boys will have hours of fun, alone or with friends, and it’s under $20.
This set comes with ninja Zane and 2 bad guys that can be captured and locked up in the jail cell in the back of the vehicle. What I love about this set is that the vehicle can be built in different colors, so it fits in great with other Lego sets, like the ones for Marvel and DC Superheroes. A great value at under $50.
The front cockpit can “break off” from the rest of the ship for quick getaways and there is a mini scavenger vessel, so it’s great for siblings or to play with friends. Comes with 4 figures: Rowan, Kordi, Zander, and R0-GR (Roger) the friendly Droid. An inventive set well worth the $75 price tag.
This is a set boys big and small will go crazy for, as it recreates one of the pivotal scenes from the movie Captain America: Civil War. This set comes with the Quinjet that Captain America and the Winter Soldier use to escape, as well as the air traffic control tower, and 6 superheroes: Cap, the Winter Soldier, Scarlet Witch, Iron Man, War Machine and Agent 13, and a mini Ant-Man with a buildable Giant Man.
The Quinjet has an opening rear hatch and hidden missiles, while the air traffic tower has walls that can explode and a luggage cart with an exploding rear trailer. Kids can recreate the iconic fight scene from the movie or come up with all new battles. The possibilities are endless, and all for under $80.
The Ultra Stealth Raider has multiple weapons and 2 opening cockpits that figures can sit in to “fly” and the Chenosaurus has a snapping jaw to try and catch it. This set has 7 figures: Cole, Zane, Jay, Kai, Master Chen, Eyezorai and Master Yang. For under $80 this is a steal.
As you can see with my review of The Best Lego Sets for Toys, these sets are ingenious and never go out of style. Many of these sets are interchangeable, and they will keep kids entertained day after day. Affordable, fun and educational, they are guaranteed to be a hit, so shopping just got a whole lot easier.
