It seems like whatever tech toys come out every Christmas, Lego will always be somewhere in that list. But why?
Lego allows kids to be creative, use their imaginations, and make whatever they want. It also teaches them problem-solving skills and develops their social skills, so it’s a great toy to buy from a parent’s point of view.
As Christmas is fast approaching, we thought we would give you a rundown of the top 10 Lego Christmas gifts for Kids, that we guarantee won’t be put in a cupboard and forgotten about in a few days.
LEGO CHAIN REACTIONS
What do you get when you put a team of experts with some teachers and some 11-year olds? You get some pretty amazing machines that spin, pivot, roll, swing, lift, and drop. Each machine is great on its own, but put them together and you can create chain reactions that can really help your kids to see how things work. As well as teaching them about some of the basic rules of physics, this kit is so much fun.
The set also includes a book that teaches the skills that kids will need to create the machines and the chain reaction.
LEGO CLASSIC LARGE CREATIVE BRICK BOX

LEGO CREATOR TREEHOUSE
The kids can build their very own treetop sanctuary with this clever construction set from the Lego Creator range. The playhouse comes with a yellow wagon so they can take all of their favourite things to the hideaway, and there’s a hollow tree for storing top secret items like a treasure map. The roof can be removed for easy access to a storage area and sleeping bag, and when they’ve finished that adventure, the treehouse can be turned into a lakeside hut complete with a jetty and pizza oven, or even a farmyard barn with a garden and wheelbarrow. The possibilities are endless!
