Best for Minifigures
Est. Price: $32 | Buy it on Amazon
- 15 nicely detailed minifigures, plus animals such as a dog, lobster, and dolphin and buildable accessories such as a volleyball net, ice cream stand, and windsurfing board.
- Builders can mix and match the minifigures' legs, torsos, heads, and hair/hats.
- Augments other Lego City sets but also stands on its own.
- Equal appeal for kids who will play with the pieces and adults looking to add to their collections.
- High cost per piece, although that's expected for minifigures (as opposed to bricks).
- No baseplate to tie all the pieces together in a beach scene.
Takeaway: Minifigures make Lego sets come to life. While some sets comes with a couple of minifigures, you can populate an entire beachside town with this diverse set of Lego folks. The set includes several "minibuilds," as well.
