DUPLO AND JUNIORS (2-7 years)
Duplo is your child’s first introduction to Lego and there are lots of cute sets to choose from, like the birthday picnic kit (R229.99, Checkers). When they’re four they can move onto Lego Juniors and we love the pack-up-and-go suitcase sets like Mia’s Farm and Fire Patrol (R179.90, Toys R Us).
LEGO CITY (5-12 years)
If your child’s favourite part of Lego is pretend play then this range gives them everything they need to create their own stories. Fun in the Park features playground equipment, a picnic table, bench, hot dog stand, 14 mini figures and endless possibilities for fun (R556, Loot.co.za).
LEGO DISNEY (6-12 years)
At the risk of putting “Let It Go” back on repeat, Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Palace is really something special. Feel the magic and adventure with the sliding bridge and revolving staircase – there’s so much detail inside and out to help recreate scenes from Disney’s Frozen. And Olaf makes an appearance too! (R1 299, Makro)
LEGO NINJAGO (7-14 years)
Fans of the movie will enjoy teaming up with Lloyd Garmadon, Nya and Officer Toque to prevent Shark Army Thug robbing a street food vendor in the City Chase kit (R319.99, Checkers). The set features a three-wheel police tuk tuk vehicle, street food stall, five mini figures and more.
LEGO ELVES (8-12 years)
Take a journey through the portal and join ordinary girl Emily Jones as she goes on adventures with magical elves. These eye-catching sets are hard to ignore and The Goblin King’s Evil Dragon (R499, Makro) would be great to put on display.
THE CREATOR SERIES (8-12 years)
The cool thing about the Creator series is that the sets can be built three different ways, so you’re really getting value for money. We’re digging the 3-in-1 Modular Skate House featuring an outdoor skateboard ramp, monkey bars, climbing wall and a basketball hoop. You can also take a ride on a scooter or try your hand at some graffiti art. It then rebuilds into a games arcade and a corner café or skate park (R699.90, Toys R Us).
STAR WARS (8-14 years)
For the slightly older Lego fans, and this is where Dad comes in, you’ll want to have a go at a Star Wars set. The iconic, two-legged AT-ST is a challenging build that includes a rotating turret and snazzy spring-loaded firing lasers (R1 149.90, Toys R Us).
