It doesn't matter how old you are, Lego holds a certain fascination. In fact, thanks to the expansion into adult and creator sets there's a Lego set for just about everyone. Though once limited to the imaginary Lego universe, a revamp saw collaborations with Star Wars, Disney and more, that giave it a whole new audience.
Today Lego stores are as much for the adults as they are for the kids, with retro game consoles, cars and city scapes all delivered in thousands of small plastic bricks. For that reason, Lego makes a great gift this time of year and luckily there are some great deals to be had too.
The list prices on some kits can be a little eye-watering but over Black Friday and Cyber Monday you can find some great deals that justify spending on these construction delights – whether it's for yourself or as a gift.
We've scoured the virtual isles of the online stores to find the best Lego sets at the best prices, and this is what we found.
