An Overview On NINJAGOS

If your children are fans of LEGO’s popular NINJAGO series, chances are they’ve asked for a few NINJAGO toys. Fortunately, LEGO offers a variety of NINJAGO building kits that not only encourage children to use their imagination during play, but also increase their fine motor and problem-solving skills during the building process.

Start your search by reviewing the recommended age range for the NINJAGO kit you’re interested in buying. The LEGO NINJAGO Cole’s Speeder Car Ninja Car Building Kit is best for preschool-aged children, as it is designed for easy assembly. Other kits that are a bit more complex to put together are a better fit for elementary students.

Check that the NINJAGO kit includes your child’s favorite characters. For example, the LEGO NINJAGO ShuriCopter Toy Helicopter Set comes with three NINJAGO minifigures. You’ll get Zane with a silver-colored katana, Jay with ‘powered-up’ hood and tornado spinners and General Vex with the Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu. There are also kits that come with Nya and Wu and kits that feature Lloyd, Wu, Lord Garmadon, Spitta, Lasha and Pythor.

Consider the number of pieces and specialty items that come with the NINJAGO set. You’ll find the LEGO NINJAGO Legacy The Ultra Dragon Building Kit has an astounding 951 pieces! Builders can put together a large dragon with four stud-shooting heads. Kids can then use their NINJAGO characters to plan an epic battle against the towering dragon. Other kits include hoverboards, speeder cars and helicopters.

Look for a NINJAGO kit that does more than just encourage imaginative play. The LEGO NINJAGO Spinjitzu Nya & Wu Building Kit allows kids to build two spinners that actually spin around. Attachments can be added to the spinners to increase gameplay. The attachments are made for use in attack, defense and speed modes.

The NINJAGO Buying Guide

  • If you own more than one NINJAGO kit, you may want to consider a few storage options that will keep each kit neat and organized. There are small three-drawer craft dressers that would work nicely to hold LEGO pieces, as well as individual plastic containers that stack on top of each other. All you need to do is label the front of each drawer or container with the specific kit that’s stored inside it.
  • Watch for special NINJAGO toys in 2021, as the company will be celebrating its 10-year anniversary!
  • All other original LEGO building toys and LEGO bricks are compatible with the NINJAGO kits, which means there is no limit to what your child can create.
  • Just like the original LEGOs, NINJAGO pieces are made out of a durable plastic that can be cleaned with a little dish soap and water. Parents can either allow the pieces to air dry overnight or immediately dry them using a lint-free towel. If you want to disinfect the blocks, you can use an all-natural thieves oil. This oil is safe to use around children, unlike some chemical disinfectants that you’ll find on the supermarket shelves.
  • Kids can watch episodes of NINJAGO on Netflix, Amazon and iTunes.
  • Parents with babies and toddlers at home should keep in mind that the NINJAGO kits contain small parts that can pose a choking hazard.
  • Both the recommended age group and the number of pieces included in the NINJAGO set have an influence over the final price. You’ll find the LEGO NINJAGO Cole’s Speeder Car Ninja Car Building Kit, which is best for preschoolers, has the most affordable price tag. You’ll pay a moderate price for the LEGO NINJAGO ShuriCopter Toy Helicopter Set and the LEGO NINJAGO Spinjitzu Nya & Wu Building Kit. Since the LEGO NINJAGO Legacy The Ultra Dragon Building Kit has the highest number of pieces, it has the highest cost.
