I have to tell you that Lego knows how to keep children's interest. My son just loves this edition of the Ninjago line. Kai's Blade Cycle has blades that extend from the sides of the motorcycle. You do need to push down in a certain spot to make to make this happen. This has been a jumpstart to get him to play with his lego's again.
Direct quote from the birthday boy! "This is the coolest Lego ever" I was very pleased to see that the birthday boy from my sons class. loved his present. He was so excited and all the boys crowded around to take a closer look. I think this may be my go to gift for boys.
This was my second Lego Ninjago set, I love the colors in the new sets, as well as the unique pieces and characters that have been introduced. This is one of the more technical Lego sets I have gotten in a while, it is still easy to put together and all the parts on the cycle work perfectly. It is a really neat and fun set. Just to give folks a guide, I am 19 and buying these sets, they are a blast and very cool.
