They’ve climbed, soared, and fought their way to the top of the new toys 2013 to become number one, top-notch distributor in the country. And although there have been more than a trio of LEGO brand knickknacks released this year, I’ve found 3 that I’d consider the very best of the best. They’re durable, designed to outlast most childhood woes, and entertaining with an educational edge.
LEGO Chima Croc Chomp
This set is a miniature of all villainous greatness that is Chima! An action-packed game of nothing but pure skill and a little bit of chance,
Chomp includes a Crug mini-figurine, 2 weapons, functioning traps, power-ups, 6 CHI, and 5 gaming cards for details about where your Croc’s going next.
There’s also a detailed, descriptive manual that instructs youngsters about their game play from beginning to end – until they get the hang of it.
Capture the CHI without getting caught in the jaw-snapping gateways of a Crug’s brutal defenses.
LEGO Minecraft the Nether
The Nether is a macabre side of Minecraft that gamers rarely get to experience; however, with the help of imaginative minds, the Nether becomes a playground for the ghoulish, monstrous, and just-plain strange.
With ghastly ghosts and a few zombie mini-figurines, kids can build and rebuild their own imagined scenes from the depths of morbid dungeons.
Underground caverns interweave and connect to stack-able cubes in over 400 linking bricks of various, darker colors. Additionally, and as a bonus, the Nether can be combined with other micro-Minecraft sets for a connect playset of epic proportions.
LEGO Mindstorms EV3
It’s alive… okay, not really, but this set comes close!
Kiddos can create their own personal robot with 4 interchangeable modes and mechanical phases. Dozens of gears and connectors go into making EV3 – a robo-pal with fierce loyalty to his creators and newfound friends.
A built-in voice recognition software discerns between voices and interacts accordingly with conversations and obedience to simple commands.
He’s a best-friend that your young man will cherish and grow with! EV3 is also equipped with an internal flashlight that shines through at nighttime, making him the perfect bedtime buddy and protector.
