Ninjago LEGO Sets Review + Give Away

This give away has now closed.  The winners were:

  • Aussie Mum – My Ninjago fan is my eldest son (6 year old Junior) but with two younger brothers (3.5 and almost 2 years) all the lego in our household gets lots of use. Junior is very much a dedicated Kai fan but he loves collecting the cards (which he carefully puts away in a special card file out of reach of his younger siblings) and he spends hours setting up elaborate scenarios and rearranging his weapons and characters. I never liked the idea of buying specific character themed lego (I prefer to buy the more generic sets for open ended play) but I’m amazed at just how much fun my boys have with Ninjago – they love it.
  • Deb Jays  – My Mr 4 year old Isaac loves “Fangclam” & my Mr 8 year old Sam loves :Ninja Kai’ & “Sensei Wu” they don’t have any of their own yet, it was definitely on the Christmas list this year! (They have been asking for so long….lol) I know they have been trying to save for them with their pocket money, but have not had the chance yet. They play with them over at their cousins house, & have some friends with them too. My beautiful Miss 10 year old Brianna just loves watching to see which one wins….lol
  • Gillian Anderson – We don’t have a fan as such. I thought it would be a good prize to win so I can add it to the Christmas giving Tree. I do this with all kids comps. And hopefully at christmas have a few extra things to take.
  • Natkatlark – Mr 8 tells me his favourite is Cole ZX because “he’s black and I like the colour black. He’s really cool with his new golden spinjitsu weapon. This type is a new character and he has the power of earth and earth power is really good”. We’ve been travelling for four months on an extended holiday and I like the fact that they are compact but open to endless story combinations that use the imagination.
  • Bronia Gaujenieks – Am raising my Autistic grandson, Wesley, nearly 8, who has really become enthused with Ninjago since it has become a TV series on Foxtel. If he has a favourite, it would have to be Kai, as it is best friend’s name.


We were sent these Ninjago LEGO Sets right in the middle of school holidays, which was absolutely perfect timing! I have written previously about how much my kids love the Ninjago LEGO and they will play LEGO together quietly and mostly cooperatively with each other for hours.

Ninjago LEGO Sets
They knew we were going to be receiving three different sets and the youngest three had already worked out amongst themselves who was having what:

Ninjago LEGO Sets
Master 3 was having Fangdam. “He is an evil person, he can’t talk but he has two heads. He spins around fast and he wins.”

Ninjago LEGO Sets
Master 6 was having Jay. “This is true potential Jay. He has lightning powers.”

Ninjago LEGO Sets
Miss 8 was having the Ninjago Training Set. “It includes eight weapons and Ninja Kai. Kai has fire powers. When you make the snake tail move, weapons can come out.”

I have to admit to not knowing all the intricacies of the Ninjas but the kids certainly do!

While aimed at the 6 – 14 year old age group, master 3 is into Ninjago as he wants to do pretty much everything his older siblings do. With a little bit of help, he put together his own spinner set.

They read the cards that come with the Ninjago Sets to find out more about their characters.

The older kids tend to always follow the instructions first off and set them up that way.

Then after a day or two they start using their imagination and creating their own stories to go with the play and the new pieces start to mingle with the existing LEGO we have in the house.

I was glad the 8 year old had the training set as construction of the set was more complex. It took her about 20 minutes, but she sat quietly and built the entire training set by herself.

As I was taking photos of the kids putting the spinners into action, master 6 advised that video would be better so you could see them in action! So here is a short video with commentary from the kids on the Ninjago Spinner sets. {If you are reading via email you may need to click here to see the video.}
