Lego Mini Figures Series 12 – Ideal Stocking Fillers
You may have gathered by now that two of my three boys are Lego-obsessed. So they always jump at the chance to review anything from Lego.
When we were sent some Lego minifigure characters from brand new series 12, they couldn’t wait to open the packets; when there are exciting new characters to be discovered inside, the anticipation almost gets too much! This time there was a brand new bonus, too – series 12 packets contain a unique code which unlocks the same mini figure character from the packet in the LEGO Minifigures Online multiplayer game, found on LEGO.com/Minifigures.
If you haven’t yet discovered the online game, I’m sure your kids will have! LEGO Minifigures Online is a free to play game with optional in-game purchases. Memberships are available, but you can opt to play it completely free.
The online game offers fun challenges that include useful skills such as problem solving, teamwork, reaction and even resource management and planning. So I suppose if they’re going to spend time online, at least this game provides opportunities for learning and development, as well as being great fun to play.
This latest set of minifigures was released in October 2014 and is inspired by film, historical and everyday figures, from a Swashbuckler to a Pizza Delivery Man and a Dino Tracker to a Fairytale Princess – there’s definitely a mix of characters to appeal to every child.
At £2.49 per pack, these sealed little ‘mystery’ bags make perfect stocking fillers at Christmas and if they double up on characters they already have, they’re fun to swap with friends.
Thanks as always to Lego for our complimentary samples and look out for our review of a Lego minecraft kit coming soon – another fab gift for Christmas.
