Lego city sets consist of buildings and places (with people and automobiles) that you will see in every day life.
Some of the popular and best-selling Lego City Sets are:
- Lego City Corner
- Lego City Camper
- Lego City MiniFigure Collection
- Lego City Police Helicopter
- Lego City Garage
- Lego City Small Car
- Lego Community Miniature Figure Set (256 pieces)
and many many more.
The range is comprehensive and Lego are always adding to it and coming out with new City Sets made from Lego.
You will notice that the Lego sets are heavily reliant on places, such as the City Garage, or City Corner as well as cars and helicopters. Their collection of minifigures is brilliant, especially the Community Minifigure Set which contains 256 pieces, many of which are rare and unique figures as well as accessories. Here you will find everyday community super heroes such as members of the police force, doctors, nurses, postmen, mechanics and teachers.
In order to encourage and provide for a child’s ever growing imagination, you will also find many accessories such as food, a laptop, a bike and animals and so forth.
Just day to day people and aspects from everyday life.
In the Lego City Sets that feature “places”, such as the Lego City Corner, your child will have plenty of scope for imaginative and creative play with the hub bub of busy everyday city life: a pizza baking, a bus arriving, a boy on his skateboard.
With 483 pieces, your children have plenty of opportunity to recreate the world of their dreams.
Lego City Sets Represent Real Life Settings
Lego appeals to young and older children because they actually create something from lots of little pieces of Lego. This aspect of creation is both inspiring and challenging to young minds and gives them a sense of achievement and pride in the end product.
The other aspect of having Lego City Sets is that they are representational toys.
Using the different Lego City sets for play gives your children the chance to act out real-life scenarios by using pretend people and settings. Using make believe also provides them with a great opportunity for enriching their language as well as giving your child to express his or her emotions about the different life experiences that are being acted out.
This is an excellent tool for playing and learning through play and your child won’t even realize that he is “learning”.
Whether you buy the Lego City Tank Truck, City Corner, Lego City Airport or Lego Police Station, you have a new set of scenarios and pretend people and each brings with it a new set of vocabulary.
Lego Creator Sets
Lego Creator sets are similar to the Lego City Sets’ range of building kits but the creator sets feature
a building or vehicle to create. Often, the detailing on these Creator sets is amazing, for instance the Lego Creator House is a modern country home with an apple tree outside, a satellite dish on the roof, a basketball net in the backyard, a lawnmower, a working mail box with letters inside, opening front and garage doors, a water tap in the garden and lots more!
You can even get Harry Potter Lego sets as well!
Other Lego creator sets include:
- Lego Creator Log Cabin
- Lego Creator Helicopter
- Lego Creator Winter Toy Shop
- Lego Ferocious Creatures
