I love this set because it includes a helicopter, a truck, an ATV, and a motorcycle. It makes a great first non-Duplo Lego set for budding enthusiasts, because it gives them so many options for playing after the building fun ends. But this set goes one step further. The helicopter includes a half dollar-sized magnet on the end of a chain. Another magnet set into the back of the truck attaches the two vehicles together anytime the magnets come into close proximity with each other.

This set includes four different types of vehicles.

But you can use the magnets separately as well. Kids can practice swinging the chain to see how close they need to get before the magnets click together. They can also attach either magnet to other Lego bricks, or put all sorts of things inside the magnet-topped box. Add a little STEM to their play, and let them explore how heavy a load the helicopter can lift, or what other household items or toys might stick to either magnet. (Hint: Magna-Tiles work great as an accessory to this set.)
