Hello - I've two ds aged 6 and 8 who play with lego at school - I want to get some for Cchristmas but am overwhelmed with the choice.

Lego city looks expensive but they say they want the police station - at £50 I want to know if it will keep them occupied for more than a day!

all thoughts welcome

I'd say it would, because the bricks can be used to build all sorts. Mine have lots of indiana jones lego sets but seem to like making chairs and birthday cakes with them! hmm

I find the big sets like that have lots of large pieces specifically designed to make the building and are not much use for other things. Personally I would buy a large tub of lego bricks and then some different cars/ helicopters etc.

thank you girls - what sort of lego bricks?

You can buy tubs such as this which contain different size bricks and a few wheels, windows, doors and a couple of people so then you can build whatever you want. Don't be fooled by the size of the box though, it is only about a third full! We bought a small box like this and then bought a load second hand off ebay to top it up with.

lego on ebay or, if youdecide to get the lego city police station, it is on the boots website and included in the 3 for 2 gifts, if that helps.
