Christmas Gift Ideas for Boys 2012: Lego Toys
Lego has many fans from young to old. Year after year, you'll find their toys amongst the top of Christmas shopping lists. This year is not going to be any different.
Boys love to build and construct stuff, so Lego is always a safe bet as a Christmas gift. The great thing about Lego sets is that they typically come in many pieces of building blocks. Besides the standard models suggested by the instruction manual, you can exercise your creativity and imagination to assemble them in many other ways. This provides many hours of playtime without the child getting bored.
Lego has its benefits for the minds and bodies of the children. Its distinct interlocking system allows the young ones to develop their skills in design and construction. A hands-on toy, it provides tactile stimulation to develop their hand and finger muscles too.
Anyway, you probably already know about all these, so let us start counting the 12 Days of Christmas Toys for the boys, young and young at heart alike.

The Medieval Market Village makes a great display piece and addition to any kingdoms/castles collection. It might be a challenge for LEGO newcomers to build the set though since there are many teeny-tiny pieces.

Batman is reminiscent of the the early comics or 60's TV series in his blue and grey suit, while Robin in red and black costume is more a teenager than a kid. Bane, who appeared in the movie, is also included.

Ghost trains have long been featured in many ghost stories and folklore. The spooky ghost train.with glow in the dark pieces will give you a Gothic feel. Take note that the set doesn't include any motor or track, but you can modify the train to run on other Lego tracks.
