It’s such a great time to be a kid! LEGO is flooding store shelves with some amazing super hero sets. Lego has had the license to DC heroes (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, etc.) for a while now, but they recently started distributing kits with Marvel’s heroes (Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, etc.) in conjunction with the upcoming release of the Avengers movie.
Kids (and adults) have been collecting the small Lego people, known as minfigs, for a while, and now their collections can be overflowing with super heroes and villains. Our two boys are having a blast with the new kits–building traps and obstacle courses for the heroes to conquer.
The kits come in all sizes, so you can buy a $12 one for a special treat or birthday gift, or you can splurge on one of the larger kits, such as the Avengers Quinjet Aerial Battle, which will set you back almost $70. Of course, you can find all these on Amazon or in the toy aisle of most stores (they’re hard to miss!).
