Today is National LEGO Day, and the best way to celebrate it is adding another LEGO building kit to your collection. With so many awesome options out there, it can be overwhelming. That’s why, in honor of this special brick holiday, we rounded up the best LEGO sets on Amazon for you.
Before we dive in, we think LEGO deserves some credit where credit is due. Adults and children alike love completing elaborate sets and some even turn it into intense art installations. It helps cultivate problem-solving skills, improves motor skills and allows kids to get really creative in their building. As for the adults, you can even take flower-arranging to a new level with LEGO bouquets.
LEGO sets have probably been around since your childhood, but you might not know exactly how old LEGOs are. The LEGO brick first smashed onto the toy scene in 1958, which makes it about 63 years old, and the famous yellow Minifigure followed in 1978, which makes it about 43.
Whether you’re trying to find your child’s first-ever LEGO set or ordering a Mandalorian kit for your Star Wars superfan, we’ve got you covered. We determined the “best” LEGO building kits by picking sets that got 5-star ratings and had thousands of reviews. Check out our 10 picks below.
Just be sure to teach your kids (or spouse) to put the LEGOs away or you’ll definitely step on some bricks. That pain is something you don’t want to feel, trust us.
