Did you love LEGO when you were a kid? Many parents want to introduce their children to LEGO for different reasons – to share a passion, to create worlds together, for imagination, to improve fine motor skills, to give them simply something new to play with. No matter your reason, you want your child to be intrigued by the set you choose. While there is nothing wrong with giving your little girl any of the LEGO sets out there, we show you a few especially fun LEGO sets for girls. The LEGO Friends sets are more focused on girls as the “Friends” are all girls. This means the main figure will also be a girl.
At what age can children play with LEGO?
For children age 18 months to 5 years there is a DUPLO subsection of LEGO. These are like big LEGOs, making it safer for smaller kids. It is also a lot easier for little hand to handle DUPLO bricks and add them together. They still offer plenty of different fun sets in this line.
For older kids they have different sets that state for what age it is. There are normal sized LEGO sets for kids starting at 4 year old.
Either way, you will have to help them build if they want the exact outcome as on the box, and can keep an eye on them while doing so. These sets come with detailed instructions on how to build the buildings or items. This process teaches your child patience, to follow instructions and organization. Of course they can use any blocks from any set to create their own world, too.
The self confidence the little ones gain from the accomplished feeling of having build something is such a nice thing to witness. Some sets are also great for educational purposes.
Our Favorite LEGO Sets For Girls:
LEGO Ideas Women Of NASA
This space set features figures of 4 women of NASA – Nancy Grace Roman, Margaret Hamilton, Sally Ride, and Mae Jemison – and displays what they specialize in.
It is for sure one of our favorite sets especially for girls. It shows that girls can also get into fields that often are dominated by men. Having female role models can spark a lot more interest in different topics.
The set is recommended for kids 10+ years old but if your kid is into space or you want your little one to get interested in STEM fields, you can definitely get this for your child earlier.
There is also a book that goes along with the set you can buy separately. It is interactive with a quiz in the end, which also helps with reading comprehension.
LEGO Disney Frozen Elsa’s Magical Ice Palace
The Disney Movie “Frozen” has become a fan favorite among young girls. If your child is also obsessed with the movies and songs, she will love this set.

LEGO Friends Heartlake City Hospital
This hospital set is another great way to have very creative play by being able to create many scenarios. We also really love that the doctor figure in this set is a woman.
