Lego has been playing with kids' imaginations since 1932, when the company was founded by Ole Kirk Christiansen, a carpenter from Denmark. Lego sets have been popular ever since, and today, the company offers more than 5,000 different sets, including classics, ninjago, star wars and minecraft, among many others. Lego sets are fun to build and play with, and kids often build their own creations, such as spaceships and robots, using Lego pieces.

In 2012, MOOZ Themes Reviews partnered with Lego to test 25 different toy sets, including Lego Friends, Lego City, Lego Star Wars, Lego Batman, Lego Duplo and Lego Duplo 2-in-1. Our lab evaluated the sets' construction, play value, durability, and material quality, as well as the overall design. We scored each set based on design, construction, play value, and durability. Here are the best Lego sets you can buy in 2022.

LEGO Classic Bricks and Gears 10712 Building Kit (244 Pieces) (Discontinued by Manufacturer)

LEGO Classic Bricks and Gears 10712 Kit Building (244 Pieces) (Discontinued by Manufacturer)

by LEGO

LEGO Classic construction toys are compatible with all LEGO building sets for creative building

The Classic Bricks and Gears 10712 Building Kit is a great value. For only $15, this kit comes with almost 400 pieces, which is twice as many as most of the kits we tested. The pieces are molded plastic, so they're sturdier than wood or plastic bricks, and they don't break into pieces easily. The set includes gears, axles, wheels, and other pieces that kids can use to build their own creations. The pieces aren't as small as in some competing kits, but they're not as large as in larger kits, so they're easier for kids to handle. The pieces also fit together well and don't easily fall out, which can be challenging for kids with weaker coordination. The instructions were easy to follow, and I appreciated having a picture of the finished model (which wasn't always the case). The kit included stickers, too, which helped kids customize their creations. There are 10 building projects included in the box, and they're all fun, creative, and doable for kids. The set also comes with two building instructions, so kids can choose to use the pieces to build something other than the projects included or they can use the pieces to build their own creations.

The set comes with age-appropriate building instructions with three levels of building complexity, and all the pieces are clearly labeled.

The set includes 231 pieces, and there's enough LEGO bricks to build two vehicles. The toy bricks are surprisingly sturdy, while the wheels and tires are nicely molded. The set is well-made, and all the pieces fit together well. The packaging is simple but sturdy, and LEGO's classic logo is on the front.
