Lego may be loved the world over, but you’ll need some deep pockets to get your hands on the latest sets. Thankfully, there are savings to be made around the Black Friday shopping season. The official Lego web shop will be hosting its own discounts from the 24th to the 27th of November. But other retailers have already gotten in on the action.
Amazon and Very currently lead the way in the UK, with big savings a selection of sets from the Lego Icons, Lego Ideas and Lego Architecture range. There are discounts on some iconic Star Wars characters recreated in brick form, and Lego Harry Potter fans are in for a treat, too.
First up, if you’re looking for a few brick-based succulents that won’t need watering, there’s 25% off the LEGO Icons flowers collection. Priced vary depending on whether you’re after the Orchid (£30 instead of £45 from Very.co.uk) or Wildflower Bouquet (£35 instead of £55 from Amazon). Each is sure to brighten up your room, with minimal maintenance – once you’ve built them, that is.
