The latest LEGO movie has proven to be a huge hit, and naturally, there is a huge selection of building kits to go with it. There are toys replicating just about every aspect of the movie, so there’s sure to be something your child will love. Finding the perfect LEGO set to add to a collection is always challenging. Here, we have reviewed a selection of products from the Ninjago range to help you make the best choice for your child.
Lego is very popular and kids love to use it to make things as well as visit LEGO Land. The tradition of playing Lego has been around a long time and this popular hobby seems to last and is growing in popularity.
The main thing to be considered when choosing a LEGO set for your child is their age and ability. All LEGO products come with a recommended age range, although this should be taken as a guide as all children are different. It’s also worth noting who your child’s favorite characters are, to ensure you get a set they will really love.
Some LEGO sets are designed for older children and adults, so are not suitable for young children. This could be because they have very small parts, or they might have a large number of parts which are difficult to put together. It’s also worth thinking about what other LEGO products your child already owns. Perhaps they already have something which can be used with the new set, or they might like to start a new collection in a different range.
