Lego has enjoyed a renaissance over the past year. That’s perhaps unsurprising given that the infamous Danish brick has something for everyone, of any age, ability and interest.

The company has come a long way since its founding in 1932, growing from a small carpenter’s workshop into a global toy enterprise. Named “toy of the century” by Fortune and the British Association of Toy Retailers back in 2000 for the second time, the present-day bricks were first launched in 1958. And the company’s popular Technic, Duplo and Lego Creator ranges were released over the following decades.

While Lego’s great for helping to develop young minds, there’s also plenty for adults to love in the ever expanding 18+ collectible sets. From thousand-piece models that can occupy adults for weeks, to immersive builds for kids that can inspire their imagination, there’s endless fun to be had with Lego.

But, with frequent new releases, more complex ranges and recent sustainability ventures, Lego can be a costly investment. If you’re hoping to save on a set, we’ve scoured the internet for some of the best discounts available right now – from Star Wars and Harry Potter to Ghostbusters builds.

Whether you’re after a challenging set for yourself, a gift to a little one or are looking for a decent post-Christmas discount, we’ve got you covered on the best Lego deals to snap up right now.
