I'm looking to buy a fun gift for a friend who's very into construction toys, particularly lego. Since I don't know much in this area I thought I would trying asking here.
- 24 years old
- enjoys Harry Potter, world of warcraft
- favorite movie is 2001: A Space Odyssey
- very intelligent and good with his hands
- loves those construction robot models (those that come in kits with the little black sticks with knobs at the ends... sorry, there's probably a specific name for those that I don't know)
I'm looking for a construction gift that is complicated enough that he's not bored by it, but not so complex that it takes months to complete. I know I could get him a lego set, but I wonder if those would be too easy for him? Also what other brands out there produce construction toys for grown-ups?
Ideally I'm looking for things under $50...
Any recommendation welcome! Thanks!
