Best Lego Set UK
Lego has captured the imagination of a few generations and it continues to do so with its amazing lego sets for the uk as well. There is a set for almost anything your kid might be a fan of, regardless of gender or preferences. Did you know they make a Harry Potter themed Lego set too? We didn’t and we are glad we found out.
The best lego sets for the uk cannot cover everything, but we tried to include a diverse selection of sets. With an overabundance of amazing lego sets, it was a hard list to compile. Legos are massive, from basic sets to elaborate ones, there is something for every age and franchise. Some of the sets will need your input as well, which makes for a high quality activity to enjoy with the kids. The lego sets can be gifted to other kids in your life as well, and they already come in gift wrap friendly packages.
Let’s be honest here for a second, we had a lot of fun playing around with the Legos during work hours. So if you want that Harry Potter lego set for yourself, no one is going to judge you here. We say you deserve to make Hogwarts and play around with Lego Harry. Throw in some dinosaurs from another set and you have a fan fiction happening right on your dinner table.
This Lego set for the UK is made for slightly older kids and helps them learn coding and building. That’s right, the set allows them to make their own robot and even code it as well. This is a great way to introduce kids to the world of computer programming as the kit makes it a lot of fun. When the child can see the immediate results of their code, it becomes a rewarding learning experience.
You can even use your tablet to control the robots with ease. While the set can be used by almost anyone, kids under 7 will need a lot of guidance from the parent or older sibling. There are batteries included in the package, however, we recommend switching to rechargeable ones once the kid is familiar with how the set works. This will save you a lot of batteries down the line.
- Combines Lego and programming
- Easy to build and program
- Compatible with iOS and Android
Nothing beats the classic set and this is exactly why we are recommending it as the best pick. There is a wide variety of Lego bricks inside this box and they come in 35 colors as well. These are enough to make a house or a huge elephant, whatever the kid wants, the classic creative brick box can help make. There is an 8 x 16 cm plate to erect whatever creation the kid makes too, giving it a stable platform. The classic set is a great toy for 3 year olds as well, under supervision of course.
The set also includes 18 tires and 18 rims so you can make some epic vehicles. From trucks to small cars, the kid will be able to build anything they like. There are windows in the set as well to adorn the buildings. The set also comes in a handy plastic box for storage as well as building ideas that can inspire the child to start building.
- The storage box is strong and sturdy
- The build instructions are great
- Wheels and rims are included
Everyone loves dinosaurs, even old kids that are in their mid 30s and are probably parents. So the Lego Creator Mighty Dinosaurs Toy is perfect for a large variety of children and adults alike. The toy has a green and beige color scheme that matches the design really well. The joints and head are moveable so you can pose them however you like. The dinosaur would look great next to your clock radio, providing protection from monsters.
The best part about the Lego set is the flexibility. You can use it with any construction toy set to enhance the experience. The T-Rex itself can be reshaped to form a Triceratops or a Pterodactyl, this further increases the charm. The kids can remake the toy themselves too giving them a goal to build towards. The mouth of the T-Rex opens up to show ferocious teeth.
- 3 in 1 dinosaur shaped toys
- Remains of T-Rex’s hunt
- Dark green and beige color scheme

This is not the complete Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle, it is just the great hall but it is stunningly detailed. If you or your kids are fans of the Harry Potter books and movies, this is a great choice for you all. We had a blast assembling it, sitting on high back armchairs, and placed it in front of our rustic mirror for that extra flair.
The great hall has a tower, a moveable spiral staircase, a potions room, house banners and even a treasure room. The tower is four stories high, has a chest in the treasure room and a turret that hosts the Mirror of Erised. You’ll get miniature figures of Harry, Ron, Hermione, Draco, Professor McGonagall, Professor Quirrell, Hagrid, Nearly Headless Nick, and Albus Dumbledore.

A pizza van is a life saver, especially the one that parks near your place. With the Lego City Great Vehicles Pizza Van you can park one right on your dinner table.

Make five Voltron lions and then combine them to make one giant Voltron super robot just like the anime. If your kid hasn’t seen Voltron yet, you need to show them one of the best shows ever made, even the new reboot is epic. The only reason why this isn’t ranked at the top is its price. It is a bit on the expensive side and might not be for everyone. However, the set includes a silver sword and iconic shield that attach to Voltron’s hands. There is even an instruction booklet to help make the process easier.
- Make 5 separate lions
- The Voltron figure is impressive
- The sword and shield are included
