10 Lego Sets Kids and Grown-Ups Will Love

Lego is something that kids never grow out of. Score a list of 10 popular Lego sets that the Lego lover in your life will enjoy — no matter their age!

Lego is not something that I was into as a child or as an adult. But my partner? He’s all about building Lego, and I have to admit, it is kind of cool.

From Star Wars ships and Big Ben to an entire city laid out on our dresser, our home is filled with Lego creations, and because Lego ups the fun factor so much every year, sometimes even I want to get in on the brick-building fun.

Legos are truly a toy that kids won’t grow out of and there’s all kinds of sets that will unlock both kids’ and grown-ups’ creativity, and keep them entertained for hours, if not days.

Here, we’ve rounded up a list of 10 of the coolest Lego sets for all ages. Some are pricey and others are budget-friendly, but all are sure to be loved during the build and on display for years to come.

Note: Due to current supply chain issues across the country, some Lego sets may be out of stock or unavailable for a time. Be patient while looking for the set of your choice and be kind to the salespeople on your search, too.
