KIDS 8+ | LEGO Ninjago: The Golden Dragon
Dragons are a big deal — especially Asian-style dragons, not those stuffy Knights of the Round Table-looking dragons. Later this year, LEGO will be re-launching its famous “Castle” series, and that line will incorporate at least one dragon. It’s red and black and super-fierce; think more Harry Potter and less Puff the Magic Dragon.
This set hits the mark for picking up on the dragon trend, which fits in easily with the Ninjago theme. I also like that this set looks simple, but with 252 pieces is actually very rich in detail. The claws are particularly awesome.
Get it from LEGO, $29.99.
