What Are The Most Popular Types of Lego Gift Sets?

While reading this review, you will have noticed that there are a range of different Lego winter themed building kits available. These include Advent calendar sets, Lego train sets, Christmas Lego Figures and much more. To discover a little more about these sets and be able to easily distinguish the differences between them, take a look at this section.

Advent Calendars

These are a very popular kind of set around Christmas time. It provides children with a more unique way of counting down the days until Christmas.

Instead of opening up chocolate filled windows, your children can have fun opening up the windows to reveal different Lego pieces. Over the course of the month, kids are able to have an absolute blast adding little by little to their collection each day.

As a result, it provides them with an excellent chance to start being imaginative with the way that they play.

Train Kits

Lego Train sets are super fun for children to build and play with around Christmas. This is especially the case with the holiday themed ones because they usually include colors and accessories that are associated with the positive feelings Christmas brings.

They can be a great joy for kids to build over the festive season. We also liked how there are ones that feature a track for children to push the train along. In addition to this, there are others that feature wheels to let kids push it on the floor.

Figures

We’ve included a number of larger Lego figures in this review. This includes the toys that have been made with arms or heads that can be moved around.

As a result, children are provided with more options to play with and be imaginative. However, the articulating joints also enables children to set their Lego figures up in a specific pose so that it looks great when put on display.

Lego Holiday Sets for Boys & Girls

Most boys and girls will be more than happy to play together while using most of the sets in our review.

Boys

We’ve reviewed a Kingdoms Lego Advent themed set that boys may find appealing. It comes with various fantasy figures, such as wizards, and dungeons.

Boys may find these type of sets exciting to role play with and use their imagination.

Girls

On the other hand, there’s a different Lego advent themed set that has been designed with predominantly purple and pink colors. These are the kinds of sets/colors that are typically advertised towards girls but we see no reason why your daughter would love them any more or less than other sets.

If your daughter has a strong preference of the stereotypical girl colors go for one of these, if not you can feel comfortable getting her any set as she’s sure to love colors that boys enjoy too!
