17 Lego Sets We Can't Wait to Get Our Hands on This Year

Feb 27 2014 - 6:51am

One of our favorite stops at Toy Fair [1] is always the Lego booth — the company consistently introduces creative brick sets that boggle our minds. From its licensed lines — like Star Wars, Marvel comics, and DC Comics — and its interpretations of some of our favorite Disney characters to its own properties like Lego City, Lego Friends, and Chima, we're always impressed with its new offerings. This year was no exception. Coming on the heels of the wildly popular Lego Movie [2], we knew it would have some exciting new sets on display — what we didn't expect was the "lego-fication" of two classics that both parents and kids will love.

Read on for a look at the 17 sets we are eagerly awaiting to hit store shelves this year!

Lego Juniors Vehicle Suitcase

Lego's new Juniors line is ideal for preschoolers who are ready to move beyond the Duplos' chunkier bricks. When the line launches in March, it will include 13 sets — some with licensed characters like Superman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Batman — and other more traditional building sets like this Vehicle Suitcase ($25) and a pink House Suitcase ($25).
