Editor's Notes

October 25, 2019:

Lego bricks have been popular with families since the day they were introduced, and it's easy to see why. They help children develop spatial skills through construction and allow them to realize their artistic visions. There is no limit to the things you can create with these simple building blocks — they really never get old. If you're looking for a way to help your child learn and play all in one activity, consider one of these sets. For even more fun, pick up a specialized Lego table to go with your growing collection of blocks.

New additions to the list include the World Fun and Mission to Mars. The Mission to Mars was chosen for its popular theme and incredibly large number of pieces. The World Fun, on the other hand, was picked out because of the unique structures that can be built with the included blocks. Both the Green Kit and Bricks and Gears have been removed from the list, the former because of its comparatively small piece variety, and the latter because of its lack of accessory pieces.
