2016 Best Boys’ LEGO Sets

 
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 spring and summer seasons of 2016. 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.

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.

Coming in at first place among this year’s top 10 LEGO sets for boys is LEGO City Police High Speed Chase.

I love the humor of this LEGO City set-up. Chase is a double entendre because the set is a High Speed Chase, but Chase is the name of the miniature figurine. Ha! Cute. Accessories include a burglar and barred gold.
