How to Pick the Best leo sets for girls

Everyone knows about LEGO blocks and building kits. Their special sets have entertained kids and adults since 1958. Think about the number 400 billion. That’s how many building bricks LEGO has produced. Here are the features we used to help you choose the best LEGO for girls.

1. Recommended Age

No matter the age, from 5 years and up, there will be a LEGO building set that will meet her interests and skills. You can virtually extend the upper age recommendation by buying regular LEGO bricks to enlarge her build. LEGO blocks are all interchangeable, so it’s easy.

Safety first! Every infant or toddler will eventually put a LEGO brick into their mouths. They are colorful, belong to a beloved older child, and, above all, small. These attractive features spell danger. Keep the LEGO bricks away from any child less than three years old without fail.

2. Collection

Collection lines are some of the most attractive building kits for kids. If your girl loves Disney Princess products, there are a variety of princesses and castles. These lines don’t last forever since LEGO always makes room for more and newer collections. If you want to add more kits from a collection, it’s good policy to get them while they are still available.

3. Pieces

The number of pieces in a kit is a second guide for suitability for different ages. A 7-year-old may have an interest in one of the more complicated kits and wear down your nerves in the campaign to obtain it. If you think she can handle it, don’t let an age recommendation stop you. If she’s normally impatient and gets frustrated easily, you may want to think twice.

4. Minifigures and Mini-dolls

The LEGO building kits and sets come with character pieces called minifigures and mini-dolls. They represent the main characters in the storyline. Also, there are secondary characters in accessory collections of the kit. See that hole in the heads of the dolls? It’s there in case a toddler swallows the figure. It allows medical professionals to remove it more easily from a child’s throat. Awesome catch, LEGO!

5. Finished Dimensions

If she uses the kit after construction as a basis for imaginary play, the final size can be an issue. You may want to consider placing the set on its board atop a table. It will be accessible all the time without having to rebuild it every time she plays. Especially for larger and more complicated scenes, thinking about the future will pay off.

6. Product Weight

If you are going to pay shipping costs, the weight of the product is an issue. Also, if you have a younger girl, hefting the box or the build might need your assistance.

The Winners

Here are our ten reviews of the best LEGO for girls. Read the features, the age ranges, and what the kit represents to narrow your gift and toy buying lists. Leila is a bit too young yet, but we’re looking at what building kits will suit her best.
