FREE £5 Lego For Kids EVERY MONTH with instore Lego Workshop (Mini Builds) @ Lego Shop

22
Found 3rd May
Lego these days can be quite expensive, so hopefully this will help.

If you're between 6 and 14 (sorry grown-ups, this one isn't for you - but you will have to stay with your kids when you take them), go into your nearest official Lego store (there's more info on where below) on the first Thursday of every month between 4-6pm to take part in the Lego Mini Build.

Get there as soon as you can, as stock is limited to 200-300 models per store (depending on size and location), and it's first come, first served. Staff will show your kids how to make the model, which Lego told us is worth around £5 (but it's not for sale). Once it's been made - it should take about 10-15 mins - the kids can then take it home for free.

The models are different each month, and you normally don't know what you're going to get until you get there.

Participating stores include:
  • Bluewater
  • Brighton
  • Cardiff
  • Glasgow
  • Leeds
  • Liverpool
  • Manchester Arndale
  • Milton Keynes
  • Newcastle
  • Sheffield Meadowhall
  • Watford and both London Westfield centres.

Happy building!

Good post as I bet there will be a lot of people who don't know about this.

But I'd say the builds are worth £4 at most, with £3 being more reasonable since they're all polybag sized.
Would love one here in Nottingham if your listening Lego hq ??

I’ll second that


I third that!
Note, these tend to be the smaller polybags models available in some of the shops, usually sold for £3-£4 at the discover centres ...great freebie though, if you do miss it, get to a discover centre build session and buy it!

Good deal op. Thanks for posting.
Nicely cut and pasted from MSE People sell these on eBay for a fiver so I guess that's why it's £5? Did anyone get one yesterday?

Yes. Discovered the thing last year it's now a monthly Mecca for my kids they never fail to insist on going after school
I must say it's very relaxing to help build a lego set but they seem to be getting stupidly expensive. You don't get much for £20. It's almost getting to the pricing point where it's not a toy for everyone.

I disagree. People have just forgotten what lego is. I discussed this before:

They have been doing this for years.. not a deal. Should be a freebie.

Have a shave, walk on your knees, make your voice a bit higher, and give yourself a fringe like Justin Beiber!

If it costs £5 its not a freebie
These mini build days are great and it is worth noting that there are sometimes other ones, too, to coincide with Star Wars Day or holidays, etc.

If you don't live near a store, I don't suppose you will :P It's also only once a month

Not strictly true. The bags these come in do not have the 'Creator' branding that retail polybags have. Perhaps Discovery Centres do sell them, but the kits themselves are not designed for sale.

Worth pointing out (not just you but also OP) that LEGO isn't really more expensive, especially compared to sets in the 70s, 80s & 90s. We were quite lucky in the early to mid 2010s because Lego had failed to adjust prices for inflation for about a decade (look at the recently retired UCS Death Star and the replacement Death Star - almost £150 difference). Remember: you didn't buy LEGO as a kid - your parents did :P Interesting article here: therealityprose.wordpress.com/201…go/
LEGO give nothing away. They are relying on little Timmy to scream loud enough for Mummy to buy him a more expensive set at RRP. Not to mention the queues and overcrowding. Being banned from LEGO has done me a favour. Think about it... VIP points is hardly a discount, promos are rubbish, their box condition is getting worse and they are ALWAYS beaten on price!

Sorry, cooling added as hardly a deal.
