There are LEGO® sets for pretty much everyone. From the advanced LEGO builders who love putting together thousands of pieces of LEGO bricks to the young LEGO fans who enjoys an easy build.
If you’re a parent looking to buy a new LEGO set for your kids between the ages four and seven, the LEGO experts from Just Bricks have some tips for you.
One of the most important things to consider when choosing a set for your youngster is how suited the set will be to your child. This means thinking about the difficulty level of the build, and how the kids can enjoy the set once the initial building is completed. Your kids may prefer playing with LEGO sets that are based on licensed movies and characters, or he or she may want a free-building set that will allow them let their imagination run wild and create something that is entirely unique.
