Six automotive sets from the LEGO® City range the kids will love
These fun-packed toys from the LEGO® City range will not only make you very popular come the festive season – you might even start playing with them yourself
It’s up there with bikes, maybe even puppies. Few unwrapping moments elicit quite as much beam-width on a kid’s face as a brand-new LEGO® set. These six easy-build vehicles and scenes make great gifts for the kids in your life, and provide the perfect opportunity to practice pretending not to look way too excited when they ask you to join in.Advertisement - Page continues below
Sky Police Diamond Heist
How about this for high-octane action: an armoured police transporter truck with an opening roof; a police winged jetpack; and a crook’s helicopter with spinning rotors, a plastic climbing rope and an opening cockpit? Inside this great set you’ll also find a working light and sound brick, a jail cell and removable gem safe, as well as four minifigures. Be honest with yourself, you’d have played with it way back when and you’d play with it now, probably with a few silly voices thrown in.
Fire Chief Response Truck
This richly detailed Fire Chief Response Truck toy features a brick-built fire truck with detachable ladder, an opening roof and a screen in the cab, an electrical box with a buildable flame element and opening doors, a water cannon with water tank, plus two minifigures. To enhance the building experience further, try building it with the help of the Instructions PLUS on the LEGO Life app, perfect for younger builders. Be prepared to be asked to “do the nee naw noise” for the rest of time.Advertisement - Page continues below
Let’s face it, learning not to miss bin day is a lesson you could have done with when you were a kid, so don’t let the next generation make the same mistake. The Garbage Truck set can help young builders keep their LEGO City clean. It features a sturdy garbage truck with a two-minifigure cab and a tilting container, plus a Starter Brick base that helps even first-time builders discover the pride of construction on their own.
At last, a trip for car repairs that won’t have you sharply inhaling through your teeth. Hop behind the wheel of a fun vehicle and visit the garage, tow the sports car into the garage for repair and help Harl Hubbs the mechanic fix the car. And yes, this time he actually has the parts. You can also add a little extra power to your car, and shine it up at the car wash.
Time to stick on some Wurzels music and get involved with the combine harvester. Jump out of the truck cab and help the farmer harvest his crops. Unhook the trailer, lower the ramps and unload. Once the farmer has ploughed the field, secure the tool and load up the harvester once again. Raise the ramps, hook up the trailer and then it's off to the next field. A farmer’s work really is never done in LEGO City.
Donut Shop Opening
We all know building can be hungry work. Thankfully, LEGO knows a thing or two about the little known phenomenon ‘The Mechanic’s Appetite’. The Donut Shop Opening toy town playset features a truck and crane trailer with an extending boom arm, platform and extendable stabilising legs, a news van with an opening roof and satellite dish, a taxi, a police motorbike and an all-new coffee cargo bike. This fun set also includes a toy shop and a donut shop with an ATM and a release trigger to launch the giant donut from the top of the building.Advertisement - Page continues below
