Lego Set Buyer’s Guide

Age Range

Lego is very upfront about which sets are right for different age groups. You should always pay attention to the minimum age listed on the box. Some sets include tiny and intricate parts that are not suitable for young kids.

Number of Bricks

You’ll also want to look at the number of bricks that come in the box and the included accessories. Lego makes bricks the same way today that it did when the company first started. This meets that all bricks are compatible. Looking at how many bricks come included in the set gives you an idea of what you can build with those parts. The included accessories let you make even more things.


Lego Line

Lego often collaborates with studios to make building sets based on popular films such as the Star Wars and Jurassic Park franchises as well as Harry Potter. The company often retires those sets later. You may want to consider some of the original lines that Lego makes. Its City line includes compatible sets that you can put together to create a custom city.

The sky is the limit when it comes to Lego sets. You can build a replica of the scene that you see on the box or put the parts together in all-new ways. Anything from this selection of the top Lego sets in Australia will be great for kids and adults who love these building toys.
