The set is really fun to build as you follow the instructions and feel the excitement building. This set is great for long lasting play and hours of imagination.

The box includes a great gift for the collector, as the image of the set on the front of the box does not match the set that is inside. The print is intended for another set in the Hogwarts castle line, but it is a minor detail that the average person would not notice.

6. Stomp Rocket Jr. Glow Rocket

Our rating: 9 / 10

Stomp Rocket Jr. Glow Rocket

Check Price on Amazon

This rocket could be a great gift for young kids. They can have a blast launching the rockets and watching them soar into the sky. They will enjoy experimenting with how much sway or height they can achieve. There is a charge time of about 20 seconds so don't expect instant gratification. It took my son a little bit to figure this out but once he did it was a blast.

The rockets do have a very strong light system although I would avoid setting them off at night if you have pets or other outside animals.

The four rockets are easy to set up and the launchers are easy to load. The launcher fires just 1 rocket at a time so you can't fire several rockets at once.

7. Sphero SPRK+: App-Enabled Robot Ball

Our rating: 9 / 10

Sphero SPRK+: App-Enabled Robot Ball

Check Price on Amazon

This is an educational and fun ball. Your kids will learn the core concepts of programming as it is fun for them. The Sphero SPRK+ is compatible with a range of apps, including Klutz My First Coding Book and the Sphero Edu app. Manipulating its sensors is also possible.

It is made from a strong TPU material, so it is durable enough to be engaged by kids from all walks of life.

8. LEGO Batman Movie The Ultimate Batmobile 70917 Building Kit

Our rating: 8 / 10

LEGO Batman Movie The Ultimate Batmobile 70917 Building Kit

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • Two models in one with batmobile and batwing
  • Flashy colors

10. LEGO Minecraft The Iron Golem 21123

Our rating: 8 / 10

LEGO Minecraft The Iron Golem 21123

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • Detailed blocks
  • Quick build

As far as building kits go, the LEGO Minecraft The Iron Golem 21123 is about as complex as they get. It comes with 412 pieces and lets you assemble an Iron Golem made of both stone and iron. That alone makes it a challenging kit, but it also features a new snow golem head piece that gives the creature a totally new look.

It isn’t cheap, and some kids may need their parents’ help to snap everything together. But LEGO is one of the biggest brands in the construction world, so this is likely to be a tried and tested kit that is durable.

If you’ve never used LEGO before, you should know they do take time to put together, so it’s not a good choice for those who need to be able to build something and move on quickly. It’s also not a good choice for an impatient child who wants to play with the end result as soon as it’s done. But it makes for some amazing long-lasting toys.

11. 4M Basic Crystal Kit

Our rating: 8 / 10

4M Basic Crystal Kit

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • This kit does not require any glue to stick together.

Two octahedron and four cubes come in this kit. The crystals are made of sparkling facets and come in bright colors.

This kit contains two patterns. One pattern comes with glitter powder. The other pattern does not include glitter.

The instructions in this kit are easy to follow.

12. LEGO NINJAGO Temple of Resurrection 70643 Building Kit

Our rating: 8 / 10

LEGO NINJAGO Temple of Resurrection 70643 Building Kit

Check Price on Amazon

Pros:

  • Great gender neutral gift
  • Cool background pillars
  • Perfect for hours of play
  • Sculptured pieces
  • Cool dragon tattoos made from yet more bricks
  • Easy to build

The picture explains it all. This hefty kit contains 765 pieces of high-quality sealed on piece Lego pieces, plus four sealed bags of stickers.

This is the first Ninjago Lego kit to have this many bricks, and they’ve done a great job of making the LEGO Temple of Resurrection look like it’s straight out of the cartoon. There are two story levels, plenty of little details in unexpected places, and plenty of nice high-visibility reds, golds and greys. Everything is also quite square and solid, making it easy to build.

It’s a great kit for those who have played with Lego before, but also really suitable for younger kids. The recommended age is 10+, so kids as young as five could certainly handle it, and you can always get involved to explain what to do. It might be a little fiddly for those on the very small side, as the pegs that hold things together tend to be quite small.
