LEGO gifts on sale

By Angela Garretson

LEGOs are truly a gift that is suitable for all ages. You start as a toddler playing with DUPLO bricks that are large, colorful, rounded, and safe. As you get a little older, the pieces get smaller and the sets get larger, so you need to have a little more fine motor control to build with them. Even adults love LEGOs because building models can help reduce stress, and the kits come in grown-up themes, so you can proudly display them on the shelf, coffee table, or mantel.
 

A quick search will reveal that there are almost 20,000 LEGO sets listed in popular online databases — not to mention all the video games. This can make it quite challenging to zero in on the best LEGO gift. To help you out, here’s a comprehensive list of the most popular LEGO sets for adults, LEGO sets for kids, and LEGO video games.
 

In this article: LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, and LEGO Ninjago Legacy Tournament of Elements.
