Top 10 LEGO Sets for 8 Year Old Kids 2017


2017 Best LEGO® Sets for 8 Year Old Boys and Girls

 

LEGO smiley head for age 8When “graduating” up into LEGO sets for 8 year olds from those geared toward lower ages, we enter into a whole new level of potential creativity. For both boys and girls, the sets available are a bit more complex – more fitting for abilities of the age in general – and are laden with both “real life” and imaginary situations, and room for young imaginations to soar.

What’s here: On this page is a list of the ten best LEGO sets for 8 year old kids through the Christmas holidays of 2017 and into 2017. These are the boys’ and girls’ sets that people are currently searching for the most, and that have the highest ratings overall for the year. Rankings for the list are based on just those two factors.

For shoppers: For each of the LEGO sets on this page, one or more online merchants are hand-selected and recommended for product availability, low pricing and safe, convenient shopping. Where reviews are available, links are provided for a bit more of an in-depth look at the sets.
