The Best Cars 3 Toys Building Kits

Have you ever gone shopping for a kid’s birthday gift with no clue what they like?

As my daughter received more birthday party invites from classmates, we ran into this more often. You’d think your kid would know what their friend likes, right? Wrong! Sometimes they know, but other times… you are left guessing what to buy kids for their birthday.

Cars 3 toys building kit gift ideas

Depending on the child’s age, my go-to gift is LEGO DUPLO, LEGO JUNIOR, or regular LEGO bricks. They are always a hit and they provide a fun way for kids to develop fine motor skills.

These Cars 3 toys building kits are fun for fans of the Disney-Pixar Cars movies as well as kids who haven’t seen the movie yet.

Cars 3 Piston Cup Race

My son loves building with the Cars 3 LEGO DUPLO Piston Cup Race set. The starting line is perfect for creating your own race with Lightning McQueen and Jackson Storm. The set also comes with Luigi, who can wave the green flag at the start of the race and help out when the cars need a pit stop. This set also transforms into the winner platform.

This kit is perfect for kids 2-5 years old.

Flo’s Cafe

Lightning McQueen needs somewhere to relax with friends in between races. Fuel up at Flo’s Cafe, then drive Lightning McQueen up the ramp into Mack’s trailer. The LEGO DUPLO Flo’s Cafe Building Kit comes with buildable Lightning McQueen, Cruz Ramirez, and Mack.

This kit is perfect for kids 2-5 years old.

Mater’s Shed

We can’t leave out Lightning McQueen’s best friend Mater! Kids will love engaging in pretend play with these Cars 3 toys. With the LEGO DUPLO Mater’s Shed building kit, help from the friendliest tow truck in Radiator Springs is only a call away.

This kit is perfect for kids 2-5 years old.

Thunder Hollow Crazy 8 Race

If your child is ready to move on from LEGO DUPLO, but not quite ready for regular LEGO brick building kits, then try a LEGO Juniors set like this Thunder Hallow Crazy 8 Race one. It’s easy to build and this particular set includes multiple characters for Cars 3 toys, such as mud splattered Lightning McQueen and Cruz Ramirez, Broadside, and Miss Fritter.

This kit is perfect for kids 4-7 years old.

Lightning McQueen Speed Launcher

This Cars 3 LEGO Juniors building kit features an easy to build speed launcher, a starting ramp, and Lightning McQueen. Kids will have a blast launching their favorite characters from Cars 3!

The smaller sets help kids build and play quickly after opening the box. The size of the pieces help younger kids grow confidence in their LEGO building too.

This set is a nice addition to either Thunder Hollow Crazy 8 Race or get five Cars 3 toy characters (Mack, Lightning McQueen, Cruz Ramirez, Jackson Storm, and Guido) with the LEGO Juniors Florida 500 Final Race building kit. These kits are perfect for kids 4-7 years old.

Please note: The LEGO Juniors building kits are compatible with regular LEGO bricks, but not with LEGO DUPLO.

We hope this list of the best Cars 3 toys building kits helps you find a gift that your little Cars 3 fan will love!
