Mom loves to build, kid loves to play...what sets should we get?
I was never into Lego much as a kid, but my four-year-old son got some sets for Christmas, and I am HOOKED. I've done two modular buildings so far and loved them. My son likes building, but he gets bored quickly and would rather play. For example, he has the Junior Fire Emergency set; he built the fire engine himself, but didn't have the patience to finish the little station at the same time. That said, he loves hanging out with me while we build, helping find pieces, talking about what we're creating, etc.
I want to build our collection, but I'm not sure which sets "play" well and which just look really cool. The challenge is that he's not really into superheroes yet (other than Spiderman), hasn't seen Star Wars, and seems a little young for stuff like Ninjago and Chima. So, we're trying to stick with things that are more along the lines of the City or Creator sets. (Friends is fair game as well.) We did have fun building the little City camper and van, then deciding that their campfire spread and he got his fire truck to come put it out. ;-) The modular buildings are amazing, but hard for him to get in and really play with.
tl;dr: Does anyone have recommendations for sets that are both fun builds for adults and have good play value for preschoolers?
