It's been 10 short years since we first met the teenage ninja crimefighters from the island of Ninjago and, even a decade after we were first introduced, their popularity continues to endure. This popularity is no doubt due to the exciting storylines and the unassailably cool toys that go with them.

With the 10th anniversary of this iconic series, Lego has released not one but two seasons back to back. Season 14, The Island, was released in March and season 15, Seabound dropped this past weekend. If you've noticed a recent spike in your child's interest in these teenage crimefighting ninjas—and the building sets and toys that go with them—read on. We have something for kids of all ages and skill levels of Spinjitzu masters. Ninja, go!

The movable parts keep this set exciting during imaginative play, and the board game portion turns it into a game night favorite. This playset-turned-game is so popular that Lego came out with a basic and a delux version; you have the option of a 1,171- or a 401-piece set.

This is recommended for ages eight and up, but we've seen six year olds have a blast with this set.
