LEGOs (by LEGO)


These little plastic blocks made their debut in the 1940s. They're still as great as ever, but are now available in themed sets (transportation, Star Wars, Harry Potter, etc.) for more realistic fun. Forbes Magazine named LEGOs the "Toy of the Century." And the LEGO brand, based in Denmark, is ever-expanding with new kits and now board games and video games, too.

Ages 5-12
