LEGO’s fascinate any age and gender. However, LEGO theme sets were initially created more to target boys than girls.
That changed earlier this decade.
In 2013 the 4th and 5th graders at Shorewood Hills Elementary School in Madison, Wisconsin, wanted to know why there were many more sets geared for boys than girls. Lego heard the students and changed their strategy. They produced more theme sets with female characters in different roles. Today the variety of LEGO Friends sets and Disney princesses may appeal to girls of any age.
But let’s be honest – girls can like any kind of building set. Sure it might be Disney Princess – but it could be the best Lego police set that she most enjoys. Every little girl is different.
The best Lego sets for girls entertain, stimulate creativity, and strengthens motor skills. I’m sure you’ll find one you’ll love on this list.

While your toddler is learning construction skills and building the birthday cake, she can learn about holiday celebrations. Meanwhile, the small doll figurine Minnie Mouse is driving to the party in her pink car.
Pretend-play with the small figurines of Minnie Mouse and Figaro, the cat. Is Figaro the cat peeping through the window or patiently waiting for the party to begin? Next, to the giant buildable birthday cake are two bricks decorated as presents.
