Lego Chima and Creator 3-in-1 Dinosaur-Car-Airplane Review

Riley is always trying to be like big brother, and for years would get frustrated at difficult Lego sets. I remember looking in the stores trying to find sets that were fun for him without being a ton of pieces. These new sets from Lego Chima are just perfect! This set "Legend Beast" is 122 pieces, and it's a great set that Riley (and Xander!) both love. 

This Lego Chima Legend Beast set includes: 
  • Cragger minifigure with a weapon and accessory
  • Crocodile Legend Beast features a detailed crocodile head, huge teeth, scales, claws and possible joints
  • Includes a CHI-powered Royal Vengious sword and translucent CHI shield
  • Place Cragger on the Crocodile Legend Beast and crawl away; Snap the mighty jaws of the Crocodile Legend Beast
  • Measures over 1" (3cm) high, 7" (19cm) long and 3" (8cm) wide

The other Legend Beasts have been trapped in the Outlands. Rush to their rescue with Cragger, clamber onto the back of the magical Crocodile Legend Beast and fight for victory. Fend off tribal opponents with the shield and CHI-powered Royal Vengious sword. Includes Cragger minifigure with a weapon and accessory.

Now Xander has been asking me for more Chima sets so they can play together!

This set was just perfect for Riley. At almost 9 years old and with ADHD/Autism he doesn't last long at trying to put Lego sets together, but this one is fun, and just fast enough to hold his attention.

 You can purchase this set on Amazon for about $10 here

This Lego Creator Set was also intended for Riley, but he had difficulty putting it together. I asked him if we could wait and get help from big brother, but he wants to do it himself, so we are taking it slowly. I will update with pics on Facebook as we get it done.
  • Features alloy-colored wheels, opening doors, rear spoiler, beefy exhaust pipe and opening front luggage compartment
  • Cruise in style with this super-cool sports car! Check out the sporty red and white color scheme and tan interior with white seats!
  • 3-in-1 model: rebuilds into a ferocious dino or a twin-propeller seaplane
  • Sports car measures over 1" high, 6" long and 3" wide Dino measures over 8" high, 11" long and 3" wide
  • Twin-propeller seaplane measures over 3" high, 7" long and 8" wide
 This set is SO cool! Xander was very jealous and is hoping to try one for himself someday. It's so nice that it can be built in 3 different sets, all with the same pieces! First you have the car:

And the dinosaur...

and the airplane....

All THREE sets come in one box of 374 pieces. You can purchase this set on Amazon here for about $30.
