One of my Favorite toys as a kid was LEGOS. I loved creating and building things. My son also loves to play with Legos. He is at that age where he has a great imagination and I feel it is important to supply toys that help encourage his imagination and other important skills.
Lego's has come a long way since I was a kid. They now make different sets for different age groups.
They have The
-Duplo sets for 18 months and up. These sets come with bigger legos and animals and cars. All bigger pieces to prevent choking and encourage play.
-Bricks and More sets for 4+ years. These are regular sized legos featuring classic lego bricks and elements.
-Creator sets for ages 6+ these sets encourage model creation with step by step building instructions. Most of these sets are 3 in 1.
-Technic sets for ages 8+ years. These sets are for advanced builders with challenging and engaging functional models that mimic the real world counterparts. Some models even have power.
Lego also offers many Themed sets such as Atlantis, Space Police, and Star Wars just to name a few.
My favorite sets are the Lego City. Lego city for ages 5+ are Evergreen themes around everyday, downtown heros and iconic models packed with building and role playing value.
New in 2010 was the Airport Theme for Lego City that we were sent to review.
A little about the Lego City Airport.
"There’s so much to do at the LEGO® City Airport! Enter the terminal through the revolving doors, check in at the ticket desk, go through the security checkpoint with X-ray machine, and relax in the café and lounge while you wait for the call to board your flight. Once the go-ahead comes through from the Control Tower, you’re all cleared for take-off, and it’s off on another adventure! Includes jet plane, flight terminal, control tower, baggage cart, passengers, crew and more!"
* Includes 5 minifigures: passenger, pilot, flight attendant, steward and service man
* Includes airplane, terminal, control tower, baggage cart, crew, passengers

This set is very entertaining and provides hours upon hours of fun and play. Seriously my husband is just as much in love with this set as my son. There is just so much to do and explore with this set. I love that this set will grow along with my son and he will be able to play with it for many years. We are already planning to add to his Lego collection for his birthday coming up in a few months.
This is a top recommended Gift for the holiday's this year. No matter what age kid you are buying for this year there is a Lego set that will be just perfect.
