(Lego $39.99)


With sets and characters from Lego Movie 2, this 482-piece set builds into a movie stage with a camera stand for a smartphone that will record movie scenes kids produce with the props and characters and special app. Attach the phone to any of the three places on the stage to get interesting angles and to pan movements. The set includes great action props like Emmet’s Escape Buggy and Rex’s Rexplorer, and 9 characters from the movie: Emmet, Lucy, Rex, Sweet Mayhem, Warrior Kitty, Star, Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi, an alien invader and a raptor. The characters have adjustable arms and sliders to move them around. There are two scene settings to use for background: Apocalypseburg or Systar System. Kids can replay scenes from the movie or make up their own. Lego Movie Making kits have been around for a while and always make a hit with kids who have the patience and skills to put the characters through their paces and enjoy creating their own movies. Marked for 8 and up. We think the sweet spot is more like 10 and up, up, up.


Ages: Tweens. Teens
