Lego is a brand name that has become synonymous with the term “building blocks.” This Danish company has become one of the most prosperous toy makers in the world. Unlike previous building-block sets, Lego created a unique, interlocking system. Their blocks, or bricks as Lego calls them, lock tightly together. This allows children to build more permanent models for long-term display. It can also be used to build toys such as buildings and vehicles that children can then play with. This gives Lego sets a lot of play options that are sure to keep gets entertained for hours.
One great benefit of the Lego design is that all sets are compatible with each other. This is true if you’re talking about two modern packs or even some old hand-me-down sets from the 70s and 80s. Every brick and unique piece can be interlocked with every other piece. Most sets contain instructions for specific builds that children can make. Just like all building-block sets, kids can also use their own creativity with Legos to make whatever their imaginations come up with. Lego has an endless array of themed sets such as pirates, castles and space adventures. Their Nexo Knight series offers a fantasy-based castle theme. Here are 10 of the best Nexo Knight sets available for the line.
