However, after a bit of research coupled with personal experience, I have discovered that the best LEGO sets, a.k.a. the most popular sets, have themes. Pirates, Star Wars, chaotic LEGO cities…you name it and it has probably been a LEGO set.
With this in mind, I set off on a research journey to gather 3 of what has been deemed the best of the best themed LEGO sets for boys. There were heaps of different answers and reviews, both positive and not-so-positive, but I came to a general consensus of 3 awesome, well-received LEGO sets that little boys love the most.
And those awesome LEGO sets are:
Epic, no doubt. Minecraft is one of those games that started out online, and no one really thought it would go anywhere. However, after only a few months, it BOOMED into something bigger, better, and more popular than anyone expected.
Then LEGO jumped on the wagon…and the rest, as they say, is history.
The Cave is one of the most popular areas in Minecraft. It is dark, dank, and covered in crystals. Plus there are a few zombies lurking around the corners.
This one is buildable, with all of the elements that make this Minecraft cave awesome. Steve is included, of course.
LEGO DUPLO Jake and the Neverland Pirates – Peter Pan’s Visit (10526)
Peter Pan stopped in for a visit on his travels through Neverland.
Ideal for toddlers, this LEGO set features bigger, chunkier, easier-to-grasp bricks.
Jake and Peter are going to have lots-a great adventures that include a treasure hunt for gold doubloons and storytelling in the Neverland Pirates’ hideout.
Whoops! It looks like the Tick Tock Croc makes an appearance, too.
LEGO Creator Red Creatures (31032)
I love the vivid, vibrant red of these building blocks. The entire set is enchanting in the way that kids can construct 3 creatures with the same set of 221 LEGO bricks.
Each animal is fully articulated and decked out with their signature, natural weaponry, like talons, fire breath, fangs, and stingers.
The three animals kiddos can recreate include: a scorpion, a dragon, and a snake. Lovin’ the bright green eyes and black accent blocks.
