LEGO CITY

Lego City is based on real situations. Children can construct and play with real life city scenarios and settings as well as other real life themes.

There are a number of Lego City sub-brands, according to Lego’s own website, these include the following: Airport (5 versions including planes & helicopters); Volcano Explorers (6 versions); Prison Island Police (6 versions); Fire (8 versions); Great Vehicles (7 versions); Deep Sea (6 versions); Space (4 versions); Trains (1 version); Town (4 versions); Demolition (3 versions). So 52 different Lego City sets in total.

That’s a huge range…and we are sometimes asked which is the best Lego City set. There is no one set which we can highlight as being better than all the rest (at least partly because we haven’t played with them all, in fact we doubt many people have played with all 52 sets)! What we do love though are the big feature items like 60078 Utility Shuttle, or 60101 Airport Cargo Plane.

Although this is a generalisation, typically we find that Lego City products are more likely to appeal to those budding engineers who like to deal with the certainty of reality. While there are huge (and usually underestimated) benefits of children using their imaginations to construct fantasy worlds, objects and structures with Lego, there is a much clearer and more functional developmental benefit of replicating something real. Children still role play with Lego City sets, by pretending to be firemen/women, pilots etc.

WHO’S IT FOR: Most Lego City sets are suitable for ages 7-12 years.

THE TOY VERDICT: Lego City is like the backbone of Lego’s range – no gimmicks, no movie theming or fantasy settings. Just real cities and the much loved Lego play pattern. Recommended.
