2015 and into 2016 -- Best Boys' LEGO Sets
Who decides which sets are the "best" anyways? In this case, that would be me, but I merely handpicked three sets that I would consider must-haves for little gents who might have a plethora of interests and hobbies.
The following, while awesome, can be paired with any other set to create a SUPER-awesome playtime for little boys who simply love building cool stuff. These are just three of the best of the best LEGO sets for boys, but rest assured, there are dozens more out there that you could get an idea for when it comes to finding LEGO perfection for your youngster.
LEGO Scooby-Doo the Mystery Machine (75902)
Scooby Doo has been around for decades, so it comes as no surprise that this awesome Dane and his Mystery Inc. gang continue to gather new generations of great fans on a regular basis.
This new LEGO must-have proves that Scooby Doo and his mysterious adventures are still alive and well.
There are a few major elements to this set of 301 building bricks, including the Mystery Machine and a spooky tree with a hidden gemstone.
Of course, Fred, Shaggy, and Scooby are included, as is a creepy Zombie.
LEGO City Deep Sea Submarine (60092)
I associate LEGO sets with imagination and creativity.
There is something magical about building something from nothing, then using your imagination to give it life.
This set is a deep sea diving adventure that starts with 274 building bricks for a moving submarine.
Other accessories include a treasure chest, whale bones, and heaps of gemstones—plus three mini-figurines.
LEGO Classic Medium Creative Brick Box (10969)
Sure, the new LEGO sets are awesome, but there will always be the classics.
The Brick Box is a creative play on a true classic with over 450 building bricks in a plethora of rainbow colors.
This box is nothing but the bricks and a few other building elements, such as little windows, doors, wheels, and a miniature figurine or two.
The great thing about this building set is how helpful and inspiring it is. If a kiddo is lacking an idea of what to create, the inspirational instructions booklet gives them a proverbial leg-up on deciding what to make.
