Kids love to get hands on with toys and there’s no better way for them to do it than with construction toys like LEGO. The system of connecting blocks is simple and intuitive to grasp but allows children to build incredible creations, whether they’re following the instructions or going freestyle and letting their imaginations run riot. Bring good news to a LEGO enthusiast this Christmas in the form of a LEGO advent calendar, packed full of different surprises.
What started out as simple playsets like LEGO City with its cars and buildings has developed into a huge range of different collections, like Star Wars LEGO and other sets based on films like Harry Potter and Lord of The Rings. For older children and the more mechanically minded there’s LEGO Technic, which features many unique pieces to create complex models of cars and other vehicles that have real functioning elements.
And LEGO has even branched out into the world of videogames, with LEGO Dimensions. This popular game uses real LEGO to interact with a videogame world and is available on all major consoles including the PS4 and Xbox One.
