Diwali is almost at our doorstep and if you look around, preparation for the festivities have already begun. You can see people setting up the lights from their balconies, markets suddenly seeing an uptick in diya and rangoli sellers, and sweet shops and bakeries putting out their ‘Diwali special’ hampers on display. Yes, it’s that time of the year again.
Different people have different ways of celebrating the festival of lights. Exchanging gifts, sweets, partying till late at night, playing cards with family and friends - they’re all fun activities in their own right. But at the end of the day, it boils down to spending quality time with the people you love. And that is where LEGO® comes in. For decades, assembling a LEGO® set has become synonymous with quality time with children. The sheer joy of watching their brains wrestle with the rewarding challenge of building their favorite set, brick by brick, cannot be described unless you’ve experienced it. And it’s not like the adults are simple wallflowers in this exercise. Every LEGO® set can be a two (or more) person job, if that’s what you’re aiming for. So without further ado, here are our top picks for LEGO® sets you should build with your family this Diwali.
