Lego, with their collection of Lego sets for girls, have shown that the stereotypical notion of girls’ dislike for building things up from the ground is wrong. The popularity of these sets targeted at girls tells just one story: given the chance, females would prove certain norms are wrong.
LEGO toys are about creativity. It provides kids with lots of opportunities for role-playing and creating imaginary worlds matching their personality. The more imaginative a kid, the more time they spent with the Lego sets.
We have selected the best LEGO sets for girls you could give to your baby girl as a present. She would surprise you with her breathtaking designs and intriguing stories.
Criteria Used in Selecting the Top Lego Sets for Girls
Picking the best Lego sets for girls to review was not all cut and dry. The LEGO is known for making fantastic pieces with little chance of a sub-standard product hitting the shelves.
Making a choice became a case of picking ten needles in a bunch of similar needles. But we were able to come up with the list based on the following criteria:
Availability – Unfortunately, some very awesome sets were no longer available and LEGO didn’t say when the sets would be back in stock.
We had no choice but to cut those out no matter the temptation the include them. After all, this is a guide to help parents/adults make informed decisions about Lego sets for girls. There was no point including a product that was no longer available.
The stories behind the sets – Lego sets tend to be about the stories kids can recreate with Lego pieces. The more interesting stories got more traction with the vetting team.
For instance, Lego sets based on classic fantasy stories scored higher. Girls love these stories of love and adventures and eagerly grasp the opportunity to put their own spin on these classic tales.
Number of pieces and accessories – We agreed that sets with more pieces and accessories offer kids a wider range of possibilities. More pieces invariably meant your girl would be able to experiment as much as possible thereby improving her ability to think creatively.
Besides, if the number of pieces is huge, she would spend more time playing with the Lego set. It is not uncommon to find girls focusing on her Lego set for hours on end.
At the least, parents would use that time to catch their breath and take a long rest.
Color scheme – The color scheme of the Lego sets played a big role in our selection process. Some colors like pink and soft shades of purple are known to be favored by girls.
LEGO sets that came with bolder or dour colors were cut out while those with predominantly ‘girl’ colors were favored. Fortunately, this criterion only served to quickly reduce the number of toys we had to review.
Fact is, there are hundreds of Lego sets with girl-appropriate colors.
