2019 LEGO 60219 City Construction Loader

LEGO 60219 City Construction Loader

I don’t know about you, but when I only have ten dollars to spend on LEGO, I usually reach for a construction set. The 2019 LEGO City Construction Loader has all the things needed to keep me (or a kid) entertained for hours.

Lego 60219 Construction Loader is a new 2019 set that was released in January of 2019. It has 88 pieces and is labeled for ages 5 and up.

LEGO 60219 Pieces & Minifigure

There are 88 pieces in this set, including 1 minifigure, a front end loader, and a small construction scene. There is also a little LEGO jackhammer the minifig can hold.

There are 2 bags in this set, plus an instruction manual that when dumped out and put together make the front end loader, the Minifigure, and the little scene.

LEGO 60219 Review

This year, LEGO has quite a few affordable little sets in the City theme, and this Construction loader is my favorite. Mostly because I prefer construction and building sets to Police, or fire, or boat or airplane themes.

As with most sets, the first thing that gets built is the Minifigure. Complee with Blue pants, a safety orange vest over a brown work shirt and a helmet with molded ear protection. There is a grey LEGO jack-hammer that fits perfectly in the claw hands.

Next you build the Digger. It’s a fun build that goes together easily and simply, and has a few techinc pieces that make the bucket in the front go up and down.

Finally, you put together the little fence scene with 4 grey 1×2 bricks that resemble concrete blocks. Stack them together, let the worker break them apart and then scoop them up and start all over again.

All in all these are great little sets. They are affordable at under $10, and very collectible. Even though you don’t get a lot of minifigures for the price, you do get a little set that is very play-able

2019 Lego 60206 Sky Police Jet Patrol

If you are looking for an easy to build, beginner LEGO airplane set for your kiddo, the Sky Police Jet Patrol is a fantastic starter into the world of LEGO, or as a gift for a 4 year old.

Lego 60206 Sky Police Jet Patrol is a new 2019 set that was released in January of 2019.  It has 54 pieces and is labeled for ages 4 and up.

LEGO 60206 Pieces & Minifigures

There are 54  pieces in this set, including 2 minifigures (Sky Police pilot and a crook).  The airplane is built using a large blue airframe element so it goes together very quickly. It’s the same one that’s in this LEGO Spider man set.

In this set there are 2 numbered bags, and one instruction book. There are no stickers, and several pieces are printed (which I love).

LEGO Printed Panel

One of the printed pieces I really like is the control panel in the Jet. So much different than the LEGO bricks I grew up with.

If you are looking for an easy beginner set, one where your child can do it alone, or with minimal help from an adult, this is a GREAT starting place. The Airplane is built on a single chassis, and the other pieces snap easily onto it.

There are some tiny pieces to this set, like the crowbar, or the handcuffs, but for me the most difficult piece is the clear blue (LEGO folks call it Trans-blue) face shield on the Pilot’s helmet. It is challenging to put on, and easily snaps off and gets lost. Some sets include 2 of these, but my set didn’t come with any extras.

The minifigures also connect easily together. They come as 4 pieces, and are partially assembled. The bottom leg half snaps into the top torso piece. Then the head goes on, then the hat (or hair). They can easily be disassembled and the pieces are interchangeable. Also, the legs are pre-assembled, as is the torso. What I mean is that the hands are already in the arms, which are already in the torso. But if you want to take these apart, you can if you want to.

This is a great starter set, or as a birthday present for a 4-5 year old who loves airplanes.  Designed for ages 4+ it is an easy build and a great way to introduce kids to the LEGO world.

2019 Lego 60212 Barbecue Burn Out

Could this be my favorite beginner LEGO set of 2019? Quite possibly yes! It’s less than 10 bucks, easy to assemble, has 2 minifigures, and lots of play-ability.

Lego 60212 Barbecue Burn Out is a new 2019 set that was released in January of 2019.  It has 64 pieces and is labeled for ages 4 and up.

LEGO 60212 Pieces & Minifigures

There are 64  pieces in this set, including 2 minifigures (a park visitor, and a fire fighter).  There is also a new ax element with a longer handle and red and silvered painted tip.  Much more realistic than the older black handheld minifigure axe.  Or do you spell it LEGO ax?

If you are looking for an easy beginner set, one where your child can do it alone, or with minimal help from an adult, this is a GREAT starting place. The Firetruck is built on a single chassis, and the pieces snap easily onto it.

The minifigures also connect easily together. They come as 4 pieces, and are partially assembled. The bottom leg half snaps into the top torso piece. Then the head goes on, then the hat (or hair). They can easily be disassembled and the pieces are interchangeable. Also, the legs are pre-assembled, as is the torso. What I mean is that the hands are already in the arms, which are already in the torso. But if you want to take these apart, you can if you want to.

This is a great starter set.  Designed for ages 4+ it is an easy build and a great way to introduce kids to the LEGO world.  

First you assemble the minifigures, which snap together quite easily.  You also get to build a firetruck with a bucket the minifig can stand in, and move around.  Put a minifigure behind the wheel and they can drive the truck.  Clip the axe onto the side of the truck for easy transport.  Lots of things to play with!  The firefighter can hold a little piece like a  fire hose, too!

There is also a little BBQ scene with a hotdog and a little brick built LEGO tree.  The camper can hold the hotdog.  Plus there are two little “fire” pieces that can be attached to other LEGO bricks or moved around.
