When robotics meets building bricks
If you love LEGO, robotics and programming, BOOST is the perfect LEGO set. With its 840 bricks, you can build five different robots. LEGO went all out with this set to make sure it was innovative. BOOST lets fans do things that weren’t possible before, such as using an app to programme the robot. This set is recommended for ages 7 to 12, although we think it can bring a lot of joy to adults, too.

A homage to the city of love
The LEGO Architecture series also came up trumps this month with the definition of beauty in LEGO-sized pieces. The Arc de Triomphe, an impressive piece of Parisian architecture steeped in history, has become the latest landmark to undergo the LEGO treatment. This detailed building block set is perfect for travel buffs, history enthusiasts and architecture aficionados from 12 years and above. With its 386 parts, the set boasts striking bas-relief and statue-adorned pillars. It manages to highlight the bold lines, curves and contours of this architectural feat. The set also includes a golden plate to represent the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and a LEGO interpretation of the eternal flame.
