Happy jumping LEGO guyWhen it comes to LEGO® sets, there is always something wonderful available for just about any age, and practically any personal taste. The various sets and toys have expanded into what seems to be an endless array of choices!

That being said, it can be quite a task to sort through which ones would be a “winner” for a particular boy – and which ones would not. Hopefully the list on this page can be of some help to you. 🙂

What’s here: On this page is a “top 10” list – the best LEGO sets for boys for the Christmas holiday season of 2017 and into 2017. Included in the list are sets for various ages, with various themes. List rankings are based on popularity for the year (by sales), as well as considering the overall consumer ratings for each set.

(Note: For a further breakdown of LEGO sets for specific ages, you can check the “by age” links toward the bottom of the page.)

For shoppers: For each of the LEGO sets in the list, one or more online shopping resources are hand-picked and recommended based on trusted, secure shopping, low pricing and product availability. Links to reviews for the sets are also provided, where available.

At #2 in line of the best LEGO sets for boys this year is the Minecraft Crafting Box set.

Minecraft is a ginormous deal right now. Little lads love a good building session with Steve, the ultimate Minecraft dude (there from the beginning). This setup is an 8-in-1 that allows builders to create their favorite Minecraft worlds, complete with skeletons, “mooshrooms,” lots of TNT, and other must-have Minecraft elements.

In the next place on the list – LEGO Star Wars Rebel U-Wing Fighter.

The Rebel U-Wing is a Star Wars fighter favorite, but made buildable with LEGOs. There are well-over 600 bricks, each with a place in the U-Wing. Includes mini figures—Bistan, Cassian Andor, a Rebel Trooper, a U-Wing Pilot, and Jyn Erso—and their weapons. This setup requires patience to build.

Another festive hit among the best boys’ LEGOs for the Christmas holidays of 2017 — LEGO City Advent Calendar.

Another awesome advent calendar, but LEGO City themed. This set includes the usual 24 compartments of 24 presents for 24 days, but moreso holiday themed. For instance, kiddos might reveal a Santa Claus figure, a Christmas tree, and a wreath. Lots-a fun and excitement-building before the actual day of Christmas.

Yay for Star Wars! Here at #5 of the top picks in boys’ favorite LEGO sets this year is the Star Wars AT-ST Walker.

Can you tell that Star Wars is a big deal this year? There are lots-a awesome Star Wars LEGO sets for the holiday season. And the AT-ST Walker ranks up there as one of the most popular. This towering giant is build-able with hinged joints, so he actually walks and roams (when kiddos move him). Includes Baze Malbus and weapons.

A bit of a more versatile pick among the top-selling and highly rated boys’ LEGOs for 2017 is the Classic Medium Creative Brick Box.

The Creative Brick Box, my favorite ever from LEGO, encourages imagination and creativity, big time. Instead of themes, kids simply get a big box of colorful LEGOs and a few elements, like wheel rims, green baseplates, tires, and googly eyes. The objective is to imagine, inspire, and create absolutely anything.

Also managing a place among the best LEGO sets for boys this year is another from the “City” lineup – Police Station.

The LEGO City Police Station is under siege. Several crooks are planning a heist and a breakout of fellow crooks. This two-story police station comes with a helipad, prison cells, surveillance cameras, and of course, several policemen and women. Also includes a well-trained police dog and a few not-so-smart crooks.

Hitting the 9th spot on the list – LEGO City Airport Passenger Terminal.

Most kids I’ve met have never been on an airplane, but they find the idea of an airplane terminal fascinating. It might sound odd to adults, but it can be magical for kiddos. This buildable Airport Passenger Terminal comes with an airplane and lots-a mini figures, like a pilot, airport workers, and a few passengers. Lovin’ the real-working conveyor belt.

And, the final pick of this year’s top ten LEGOs for boys is the Star Wars Rebel Combat Frigate set.

One more from the LEGO Star Wars collection. The Rebel Combat Frigate setup has over 950 building bricks, all with a place on the main fighter. It takes some time and patience to completely build this one. But totally worth it. Mini figures include Agent Kallus and Chopper Astromech Droid.
