People young and old across the globe have loved Legos for generations. Why? Because they're loads of fun, of course! The complexity and number of structures that can be built with those colorful little interlocking pieces is limited only by your little one's imagination. On top of that, anything he or she builds can instantly be taken apart and built into something entirely different.
Legos are so popular that they've spawned numerous feature films, building competitions, games, and even six theme parks!
One of this year's most wished-for gifts will be the Super Heroes line of Legos. They're expected to be so sought-after that Kmart has included them on their 2014 "Fab15" hot toy list and WalMart has included them on their 2014 Holiday Toy list.
The Super Heroes Legos line features both Marvel Comics characters and DC Comics characters and currently includes at least 23 different play sets. Kmart has predicted that nine of those sets will be especially popular this year:
