This fresh new addition to the LEGO Creator line is like nothing we've seen from them before. Like previous Creator sets, kids get to construct three very different creations. But this set shimmies and chomps in a very new way. Build the crocodile, then turn up the ferocity factor by opening and closing his jaws with a secret lever, or watch his tail whip as he wiggles from side to side. When you're all croc-ed out, disassemble him and rebuild—both a dinosaur and a deep sea fish can be built from the croc's parts. Fantastic fun! (LEGO, $29.96)
