Kids love LEGOs, but it can be hard to keep them buried in bricks when modern sets are so expensive — especially the branded ones like Harry Potter and Star Wars. Why not go back to basics this holiday season with a LEGO Classic set, one that features a variety of colorful pieces, but asks a child to build solely from imagination?
This massive animal-themed set comes with 1,500 parts for building all sort of animals — lions and tigers and giraffes, oh my — and it’s available for only $29 right now. That's a whopping 50 percent off its usual cost of $58!
With supply chain issues looming, it’s best to get your LEGO sets (and other toys) as soon as possible. One way to do that is with Walmart+. For a flat fee of $13 month or $98 can you can get free shipping on tons of products, and get your orders as quickly as overnight — or even the same day. Sign-up is easy: You get two weeks for free, and two more if you fill out a three-question survey. That should see you through to Black Friday and beyond.
The Bricks and Animals Building Set has more than 500 reviews from customers, the vast majority of them five-stars: Many shoppers loved the generous supply of pieces, with one grandparent saying it’s a “great price and will enable your ‘future contractor’ to build to his/her heart's content.” They also liked that the sets have a “variety of block colors beyond the basic red/blue/yellow.” Another parent says, “this box is HUGE! This is the first year [my stepson] started requesting Legos and let me just say, Legos are NOT CHEAP. This made me feel like I got him one of those huge sets for the fraction of the cost. This is a great kit for any younger kid getting interested in Legos and also for any advanced kid to build onto their LEGO collection!”
It’s a joy for a broad range of ages too, as indicated by a number of shoppers. One says: “... My kids are 8 and 9 and still LOVE Legos. They recently got their 3 year old cousin interested.” Another purchased his set as a gift for a 10-year-old, who “LOVES it.” And yet another calls this set “perfect for my 7-year-old son to build little creations on his own....” Even teens can get in on the fun: “My 13-year-old loves to build and it keeps her busy,” reports another satisfied shopper.
It’s a great gift for all genders, with one mother commenting, “My daughter really enjoys playing with Legos and was super excited when she saw that she could build a unicorn with this set! She spent over an hour just building different things with this set when she first got it and continues to play with it building different things.” One woman’s granddaughters “love this. They play with their father's old Legos at my house, but didn’t have any at home. They really enjoy playing with Legos.” And another grandparent says “Legos have long been a beloved toy in my family, and giving this to my grandson was a wonderful investment in his engineering brain.”
If there's a kid on your holiday list, snap up the Bricks and Animals LEGO Building Set while it's half price — and still in stock. One mother says it all when she states, “My daughter and the neighbor boy spend hours building with her Legos!” Screen-free imaginative, collaborative joy. The best gift ever.
