Welcome to the wonderful world of LEGO City toys! These days, there’s more to LEGO than simple building blocks. The company has kept brick fans big and small happy since 1916 thanks to high standards, innovative design and a forward-thinking approach. Over the past century, the LEGO universe has expanded to include a range of toys and games that are imaginative, fun to build and have endless possibilities for role playing.
LEGO City Buyer's Guide
As the name suggests, the LEGO City range is all about city life. The focus is on authenticity and fine attention to detail. The original idea came about in the 70s, when the LEGO Town theme was launched. Now, the theme has been made over with a fresh set of models and vehicles that portray everything from emergency to civilian services.
From a fire station to a farm and even a space centre, all aspects of life in a sprawling metropolis are covered.
LEGO City toys are available at all the tried and trusted toy retailers, including: Amazon, John Lewis, Tesco, Argos and more. Use our stock check and price comparison tools to save yourself time and money.
Aimed primarily at boys aged 5-12 years, the sets start at around £5 and go up to £100. The comprehensive range includes cars, trucks, boats, trains, buildings, minifigures and much more.
Now we’re up to speed, let’s take a quick look at some of the LEGO City toys. Below are four of our favourites from the range.
The Forest Police Station is a joy to build and behold! It’s got everything a brick head could possibly want; cool vehicles, a ton of accessories, 5 minifigures and ingenious features such as the escape hatch. There’s even a bear for authentic, forest role play scenarios. The price tag is really reasonable, making it an excellent all-rounder.
The Fire Station is one of the most popular sets from the City range. What little boy doesn’t get excited about becoming a fire fighting hero? You’re onto a winner with this one. It’s got cool trucks and comedy value supplied by kitten and tree accessories. Four minifigs seal the deal.
Next up, we have the Space Shuttle. A little less expensive than the two sets above, it has enough features and accessories to keep boys going for ages. It’s a simple but fun build with some sweet little touches, including the Hubble space telescope which comes complete with robotic arm.
Finally, there’s one of the finest vehicles from the range – the Garbage Truck. A proper bargain at around £14.99, it’s probably the best value toy from the range. Look inside the box and you’ll find peices to make a truck with moving rear ladder, two worker minifigures and plenty of little accessories.
We’ll be adding more LEGO City toys over the coming weeks so watch this space...
