5 Lego Sets You Should Buy Today

5. Lego Wheels photo copy 5(6118) This is probably the most versatile set that you can buy.  It’s currently out of stock on Lego.com, but for a reason. Kids love to build cars.  Every time that we go to a place like Legoland my kids favorite destination is the place where you build cars and race them down a ramp.  I always try to get them to leave, but they keep modifying their cars to make them go faster.  Of course they can never beat me, because I have 30 more years of experience on them.  Also I was undefeated in the Pinewood Derby in Cub Scouts, so I will never let it happen. Of course you can never really go wrong with any set that you buy.  The play time is limitless.  Look at me, I’m 39 years old and can’t get enough of them.

The Beginning
About Daddysincharge

After 15 years as a News Photographer in the fast paced world of television news, I am now knee deep in Legos and laundry as the stay at home dad to to little boys. It was my choice to stay at home, so don't look at me like I am some kid of freak show. We're all parents just trying to raise our kids the right way. Some might be better at it than others, but if our kids love us for who we are, who cares.

  1. No motorized AT-AT? Come on. What kind of list is this? 😉

      Nothing with a motor at this point… that will come I’m sure.

  2. Kevin Vandiver says:

    My boy loves legos (mostly the mini figs) and we both gaze longingly at the deathstar set. But sweet lord, its expensive.

    • Daddysincharge says:

      It is expensive, but look at it this way… you are going to spend hundreds of dollars on other various Star Wars sets, so you might as well go all in with that one and NOT buy any of the others.

  3. I actually had to buy a birthday gift for my nephew this past weekend and used this guide. I ended up buying a wheels kit and you’re right, he loved it.

      Wisdom I speak!

  4. I wonder how many people pine lovingly over that Death Star set. Every time I open that catalog, me and the boys stare at that set and wonder how great it is…

  5. Nick says:

    The King’s Castle (70404) is a good alternative to the police station as well. You get the good vs. bad thing going plus a jail, with the added thrill of a little fantasy world thrown in. The drawbridge, catapults, and knights on horseback always kept me interested.

    “LEGO leper colony.” <– haha!
    Regardless of the age my kids like to dismember their minifigs as well. I like the idea of $.10 per piece. Great rule.

  7. Babjan says:

    They were very excited about the Lego store. They have the Lego Star Wars game for the DS and Wii, and there was a lot of Star Wars teemhd Lego sets. We ended up getting them each a three pack of Lego Star Wars people, which are their favorite Lego pieces.

This is what I think...
