Legos are iconic toys that have been enjoyed by people all over the world for decades. While they work on the same basic principles, these little bricks are no longer the same basic building blocks you played with as a child. The Lego Group produces a range of complex sets that are modelled off of beloved franchises. You can find sets for everything from Harry Potter to Disney. However, Lego has also created its own unique lines as well.
Lego Elves is one of the company’s newest franchises. The Elves line incorporates mythical creatures, magical scenery, and a captivating story that appeals to any imaginative child. The cool thing about Lego Elves is that it’s a multi-media franchise with animated videos and short movies on digital streaming platforms.
The available Lego Elves building sets takes the story off the screen and into real life. Each set includes all the pieces kids need to recreate their favorite scenes. They even come with miniature figurines of the characters, allowing them to use their imaginations to push the narrative of Elves even further.
Plus, the Lego sets have the added benefit of teaching your child problem-solving skills. Every set has to be put together. It’s a challenging process that ends in a fun reward.
