Basic Sets are the basis of any LEGO collection. The contents are so varied that children can build whatever they imagine. And if they need some inspiration they can find it in pictures on the boxes. Unlike Basic Sets the Model Sets are designed to build a particular model from simple instructions. But imagination will create other models from the same bricks.
