The Best LEGO Building Sets
In my opinion, the best LEGO sets aren't inspired by movies, books, or popular media. They're plain buckets of building bricks, ready for the molding hands of an imaginative child with a spark for creativity. However, not just any play-set will do, as devoted, miniature artists need a wide range of matierals to create their artwork. With (kind-of) extensive research, I've found the 3 best, most expansive LEGO building sets, all boasting 400+ pieces of prospective architecture.
1. LEGO Ultimate Building Set - 6166
Notice the word "ultimate!"
This building set is massive with a count of 405 colorful bricks in varying lengths and styles. They're packaged in a durable, plastic bin with a see-through lid for easy storage and quick clean-up.
Children (and kids-at-heart) can have so much fun with this because every creation can be something different. Along with multicolored building blocks, there's also a mini-figurine, plates for construction, house elements, and small wheels for impromptu cars.
For kids, the mere thought of these bricks will bring about nearly endless creative thoughts and possibilities.
2. LEGO Bricks & More Builders of Tomorrow Set - 6177
For children that prefer to have complete creative freedom, this set is nothing but colorful building blocks.
There are no wheels, house parts, or mini-figurines to throw off the imaginative process. Instead, pint-sized architects will have to come up with their own entrances to small homes, vibrant vehicles, and populated, LEGO towns.
There are 650 pieces in this collection!
3. LEGO Bricks & More Deluxe Brick Box - 5508
With a vast collection of 704 bricks, this box is a plastic tub, filled to brimming with inspiration for little builders.
Special pieces include 2 mini-figurines, several wheels, house windows and doors, and base plates for stable structures.
There's also a separation tool for those hard-to-pry blocks, making these easier and more fun to stick back together.
