Legos are one of the best gifts for boys of 5 years old and up. Some continue their love of Lego through their adulthood. Why are Legos a perfect gift? Its firstly an educational toy. Anything that has to do with building blocks, no matter the brand, helps develop the spatial thinking in kids. And the younger they start playing blocks, the better.
Off course, Lego brand is the most well known, and there are thousands of them, yet you should not forget other types of building blocks as well. Starting 5 years old, kids can play with smaller pieces and really immerse themselves into Lego. Really, you just can imagine what a 5 year old mind thinks and see through some small pieces of Lego.

Lego Creator for Boys 7 Years Old And Up
If there is one type of Lego sets which me as a parent I would recommend, the Lego Creator 3 in 1 sets would be on my top list. Kids, especially boys, always look for things that they love, I am talking about superheroes stuff. Yet, I as a parent do recon the educational aspect of Lego Creator building bricks, particularly the Seaside House Lego, Treehouse or Parisian Restaurant. You need lots of imagination and creative thinking to build them. Plus, ones you have done them once, the blocks can be used to make other creative things as well. You really get blown away with what kids can come up… Also, both boys and girls can play with them as well. What is the recommended age for Lego Creator? I believe any experienced Lego builder kid should be able to do them starting age 7. The manufacturer’s recommended age is 8 to 12 years old, though.
