1The Joker Challenge 10544 (Best Age 2+ Lego Batman Set)

The Joker Challenge comes with 40 pieces that include the two iconic characters, Batman and Joker, along with things like a radar room and the Batmobile. As per usual with Lego Duplo, the pieces are larger with brighter colors and smiling faces to encourage young children or toddlers to easily create exciting and fun scenes.

What we love

  • Large pieces are easy for small hands to grasp
  • Color-coded blocks connect well

We dont like this as much

  • Might benefit to have a few more block pieces

2Batman: Defend the Bat Cave 10672 (Best Age 4+ Lego Batman Set)

With 150 pieces, the Batman: Defend the Bat Cave set provides young kids with a challenge without being too difficult. Three mini-figures come with the set: Batman, Robin, and Joker. Alongside that, children get a thrilling cave and jail cell to build and play with as the heroes race to capture the villain in the Batmobile.

What we love

  • Simple instructions and everything comes in separate pre-marked bags
  • Easily compatible with regular Lego pieces

We dont like this as much

  • Young kids might require assistance pushing some pieces down

3Scarecrow Fearful Face-Off 70913 (Best Age 6+ Lego Batman Set)

With a style reminiscent of Lego’s The Batman Movie, this Scarecrow Fearful Face-Off uses the classic trope of good guy versus the bad guy with Batman and Scarecrow figures. Kids get 141 pieces to play around with, and one of the interactive pieces they can create is Scarecrow’s gyro-copter that has rear spinning rotors, double bomb-drop functions, and even an adjustable rudder so that there’s no shortage of fun.

  • Plenty of cool interactive functions

We dont like this as much

  • May be too simple for some kids

4Batman Batsub and the Underwater Clash 76116 (Best Age 7+ Lego Batman Set)

Take Batman to an ocean battle with this Batsub and the Underwater Clash. However, this 174-piece set doesn’t just come with the man in black, but it also comes with the hero Aquaman and his constant foe, Ocean Master. There’s even a cool shark figurine too. Kids embark on an exciting imaginative play as they can battle with the figures or “swim” around with the Batsub that has features like rotating wings and propellers and stud shooters.

What we love

  • Great amount of room for interactive imaginative play
  • Batman easily fits inside the submarine

We dont like this as much

  • Submarine propellers could spin a bit more smoothly

5The Batmobile 70905 (Best Age 8+ Lego Batman Set)

Kids can take Batman’s epic car on an adventure with The Batmobile Lego set that includes 581 pieces. This crime-fighting car can be repositioned to suit various missions, and in the cockpit, both Batman and Robin can fit with ease. Other than the two famed heroes, children also get figures of Man-Bat and the two Kabuki Twins.

What we love

  • Pieces are robust and can withstand hours worth of play
  • Changing the car's positions is a simple task

We dont like this as much

  • Can take quite some time to assemble

6Batman vs. Mr. Freeze 10737

  • Both character figures easily fit in their rides

We dont like this as much

  • Some sections might be difficult for younger kids to build by themselves

Capture a breathtaking scene from the Lego film with this Joker Balloon Escape build. Using 124 pieces, this set comes with a power plant and silo that has an exploding mechanism. Meanwhile, both Batman and Joker figures come with a handful of cool accessories. The main event; the balloon jetpack, features two translucent flames for maximum effect.

What we love

We dont like this as much

  • Joker fits a bit tight into the jetpack

8Deliverance from the Ra's al Ghul 76056

Go on a rescue mission with this Ra’s al Ghul Lego set that contains 257 pieces. With so many pieces, this may steer more toward the interest of older kids. It’s an incredible set that comes with a desert version of the Batmobile, a jail cell, and even the toxic Lazarus Pit. Kids even get four characters: Batman, Robin, Ra’s al Ghul, and Talia al Ghul.
