LEGO Legends of Chima Nest Dive Review (LEGO)

What It Is

The 97-piece Legends of Chima Nest Dive is one of the building sets in LEGO's newest original theme. The story behind the entire Legends of Chima line is a classic adventure/battle fantasy where eight animal tribes battle to control the CHI, a power source that is essential to survival.

With this set, kids build a nest and attach the Eglor minifigure to the Speedor. Use the rip cord to launch the Speedor at the leaf ramp and fly into the nest to claim the CHI for the Eagles. Attach the power-up for improved precision. Two weapons and six CHI are included.

In addition to the building, there is also a card game that allows kids to play as the characters and battle for CHI. This set includes five game cards.

Is It Fun?

In the collection of sets that LEGO has created, kids can enact their own adventures and battles. The Nest Dive set is a great example of what makes this a terrific new edition to the LEGO universe. The building is fun, the directions are great, and there are terrific new pieces kids can use. Legends of Chima really is a deep and well thought-out story with lots of play.
