TheToyZone is an independent publication with no ties with companies mentioned on the site. We don’t accept free products in exchange for glowing reviews. Instead, we report our own findings to help you make an informed decision.

Remember that time a snowplow and a sports car had a race through the city and crashed into a garbage truck? Or when there was a fire at the airport and at the same time there was a breakout on the prison island and they escaped in an ice cream truck? 

You don’t remember? 

Clearly, you need to spend more time in LEGO City.

It’s got everything, from tractors to camper vans to bulldozers to police helicopters. Because they’re LEGO, they’re all amazing and great fun to build and play with, so we’ve picked out the 20 best sets from this range.

We’ve ruled out all the fake online reviews so you won’t need to worry about the Harvester crashing into the passenger train – unless that’s what you want to happen. Whether exploring the deep sea or flying cargo back from the jungle, there’s something here to fire up every kid’s imagination for hours on end.
