What It Is
What It Is
LEGO is introducing a new themed line called Ninjago. The story behind this new line of building sets involves four young ninjas who must master the art of Spinjitzu, one of the lost martial arts, as the story goes, to save the world from the evil Lord Garmadon and his skeleton army. This new hybrid play theme combines all of the building and roleplay of traditional LEGO themes with an exciting new social gaming experience that mirrors the art of ninja spinning to defeat the enemies.
One of the playsets in this new line is the Turbo Shredder. With this 298-piece building set, kids can build the Turbo Shredder vehicle, complete with moving parts. The set comes with three minifigures and minifigure accessories (such as a golden scythe), and is compatible with other Ninjago sets.
Why It’s Fun
The Ninjago building sets are martial arts meets skeletons and a sophisticated narrative that will really capture kids' imaginations. Not only will kids like building the vehicle, but they'll also like that the vehicle's wheels really move, making it fully functional and adding lots of play value.
Who It’s For
The Ninjago line is geared toward boys. This specific set is for ages 7—14.
What to Be Aware of
Make sure you keep the instructions handy when building the Turbo Shredder. It may take some time to put the vehicle together. Luckily, building is what makes LEGO fun.
