Frequently Asked Questions About LEGO Ninjago

🙋 What is Ninjago, and who is it for?

LEGO Ninjago is a TV show, but it’s a pretty genius one in that it encourages kids to look away from the screens and towards their LEGO blocks so they can recreate the show’s action-packed adventures. Ninjago is based around a group of six teenage ninja warriors who are learning to become masters of spinjitzu from their mentor, Master Wu. But instead of being able to complete their training in peace, they must defend their home from a cast of fearsome and dangerous enemies, including the Ninjago Overlord. 

And all the while, they must also overcome the same issues all kids face, namely getting on with their friends, learning who they are and how to work together and moving past silly mistakes. 

LEGO Ninjago is aimed at children, mostly between 6-10. At the same time, the show is full of clever but silly humor that even parents can enjoy. So far, there have been 15 seasons, providing a wealth of different enemies, creatures, vehicles and locations to recreate in LEGO. 

From dragons to mech action figures to racing cars, submarines, temples and more, there are many LEGO Ninjago sets for kids to build and play with.

🙋 Is LEGO a good gift for kids?

LEGO is a fantastic gift for kids for loads of reasons. Sure, they may occasionally cause pain when they get under your feet. Still, at the same time, they are virtually indestructible, provide kids with enjoyment for years and don’t require any batteries. 

They’re also super beneficial for kids’ cognitive development, helping them with basic math skills, problem-solving, spatial reasoning, planning and more. At the same time, they allow kids to explore their creativity, and they are a fantastic way to bond with friends and family and practice teamwork. And, of course, they provide hours upon hours of screen-free fun.

So… What LEGO Ninjago Set Should You Get?

That all depends on what your little ninja loves best about Ninjago and the type of LEGO set they’re ready for. Are the dragons their favorite part of the show? Then get them one of the dragon sets. Are they more into the mechs? Go for one of them instead. The playsets and temples are great if you’re looking to go all out, while several of the vehicles are ideal if you want something simpler.

We tried our best to give you a wide variety of LEGO Ninjago options, but we may have left out some great sets — we’re human, after all. So if you think we missed something, be sure to let us know.
