RECOMMENDATIONS FOR LEGO FANS

LEGO Creator Expert Assembly Square 10255 Building kit, Amazon Australia, $299 (down to $399.99).

“The assembly square is one of my favourite builds. I enjoyed especially the details in the architecture of the building: different types of friezes, the roof lines, the different types of windows and facades, the spire. Inside the buildings, I loved the variety of shops: the dental surgery complete with dental equipment, the dance studio, bakery with the big wedding cake in the shop window, the diner complete with musicians, the flower shop, and the mini figures milling about. It’s easy to lose yourself in this wonderful world of the assembly square.”

LEGO Dots are a magnificently relaxing LEGO offering in their latest product range too. I love how tactile the small tiles are, and how cool they feel at my fingertips. There is pure satisfaction when running your hands through a bowl or bucket of LEGO Dots! I also love how LEGO Dots are about patterns and expression rather than instructions or conformity. It’s so relaxing to build freely!”

LEGO SET WITH THE MOST CREATIVITY
LEGO Star Wars Death Star 10188

Number of pieces 3803

Recommendation for age 14+

“The most challenging set I’ve worked with would be the Death Star within the Star Wars range. The Star Wars sets are amazingly impressive, but the colour palate can make pieces quite difficult to find and read within instructions. Also the sheer size and complexity when building the Death Star is massive and time consuming. But so worth it in the end!”

“My favourite LEGO sets right now are the LEGO Art series though. They combine the relaxation of LEGO Dots with a visual centrepiece that can become part of your home. I also love that they’re out of reach from my children, and cater for a wide range of fanbases from Harry Potter to Andy Warhol.”

RECOMMENDATIONS – LEGO SUPERFAN OTHERS
We consulted a few more self-professed LEGO superfans of all ages and genders to find out which sets are their personal favourites – and why.

LEGO Creator Porsche 911, LEGO, $229.99

Number of pieces 1458

Age recommendation 18+

“Two icons, LEGO and Porsche – what more could you want? What I enjoyed about building this was you saw results early on in the build, giving you instant satisfaction. The attention to detail is incredible. Once finished you can move the steering wheel, shift gears, turn the car into a convertible and tilt seats. It’s hard to keep my grandsons from playing with it. This is the closest thing I’ll come to the real deal for now, and I’m okay with that.”

LEGO LEGO Ideas Dinosaur fossils 21320, LEGO. $99.99

Number of pieces 910

Recommendation for age 16+

“With 910 pieces and a same-same colour palette, this LEGO set resulted in a rewarding but challenging afternoon. The results, however, are museum worthy and bigger than expected. It looks really impressive on my desk. Took me around three hours to build and once completed it’s hard to play with so would recommend as more a look but don’t touch creation.”

“Quarantine started with Friends binges for me and ended with Friends LEGO builds. This set is so fun. Phoebe with her guitar – I love it! So cute! It wasn’t the most challenging build I’ve ever done, for me that was Hogwarts Castle and this is a walk in the park (or perk!) in comparison, but it did take me about four hours over a couple of days. The attention to details is divine. If you love the show, you’ll love this.”
