Cool And Affordable Lego City Playsets

Updated on February 2, 2015

Great Value Lego City Vehicles

Hello and welcome! As a small child, I always loved Lego, though it was way simpler back then - bricks, roof tiles, windows, and not much else. These days Lego can include bricks of many shapes and sizes, motors, gearing and LED lights. It can be a real inspiration for the budding architect or engineer. You can buy sets to construct buildings, cars, boats, planes and much more.

The Lego City range of playsets make great birthday gifts for kids. Whether your budget is a little restricted this year or you are looking for something extra, there are Lego City Vehicles to suit. The range includes car, boats, a seaplane, fire trucks and more.

The Lego City playsets are easily assembled by small hands, durable and fun. Suitable for children aged from 5 to 12 years, these cool toys can stimulate the imagination. Children enjoy playing with them as single toys or combining them with others in the set.

The photo shows the Lego City Seaplane which is available from Amazon, see below for more information.

The Seaplane is 8 inches long, has permanent floats and twin propellers, and can go anywhere. This set is bright and colorful with yellow and white plane and black propellers. You can open the top, so your pilot mini-figure can clamber in, and don't forget to refuel. The playset contains 102 pieces, and includes the Seaplane and pilot mini-figure.


Dads and Lego

As a child I remember watching my dad building with our Lego. Sometimes, it would be just a few minutes, showing us how to make a roof, for example. On other occasions, he would be occupied for hours - at least, that's how long it seemed to us - he would make an elaborate building. A great example for us. The only problem is that we weren't allowed to dismantle these treasures, and would have to wait days to get our Lego back!

Lego City Water Vehicles

Lego can stimulate the imagination. Imagine flying all over the world, landing on lakes, seas and oceans! Imagine entering a Speed Boat competition, cruising a lake, or crossing the ocean!

Ultra Cool Lego City Speed Boat

I love this cool Lego City Speed Boat, with its bright red boat top and out-board motor. The mini sailor even sets a good example by wearing his life jacket! The photo is from Amazon.

Lego City Land Vehicles

Of course, Lego also make a good range of land vehicles, including quad bikes, cars and trucks. These are all fun to make and even more fun to play with.

Ever wanted a quad bike? Me, too, but I couldn't afford one. Of course, this is not a problem for Lego fans. The Lego City Quad Bike is a 33 piece set, and includes the Coast Guard mini-figure. Imagine crusing off-road or through the streets in this ultra cool 4-wheel vehicle.
