LEGO – one of the most famous toys of all the time


Lego is an iconic name in the world of educational toys. Using as a basis its universal bricks, the Danish brand not only manufactures the classic sets of constructions, but has driven a great variety of collections, more than 70 product lines inspired by different themes: films, series, historical times, cities or tourist attractions. Of course, its popularity has also increased due to the license it received from extremely popular franchises such as Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, Disney, DC and Marvel.


Lego Duplo

Of all the collections, Lego Duplo occupies the first years of childhood. This collection is designed for children between the ages of 1 and 5, since its pieces are double in size, than the usual Lego bricks, are durable and easy to grip and does not present any risk of swallowing. Lego Duplo allows children to easily build and learn through colors, shapes and numbers. It is the best option when buying a “first Lego” for a child.

Lego Juniors

Lego Juniors are intended for small builders between the ages of 4 and 7, but both the look and the themes of the construction sets resemble the more elaborate lines from Lego. It is a collection for the little ones, but, as the Lego ones define it, with bricks, quality and “100% Lego” gaming experience. They are ideal for children who have already become accustomed to Lego Duplo.

Lego Friends

Lego Friends includes sets that can be used for approximately 6-12 years. Although it is a more “feminine” line of Lego’s, the Danish company has announced several times that it does not want to be a toy just for little girls. It appeared on the market in 2012, and its sets represent life scenes from an invented city: Heartlake City. Its particularities? Pink and purple colors as protagonists and figurines of the same size, but more realistic and with finer details than usual.

Lego City

As its name suggests, Lego City is inspired by urban life and recreates everything in a city: train stations, police stations, fire trucks. The recommended age is between 6 and 12 years. It is a collection specially designed for post-construction play, as the construction process is very fast.

Lego Creator

Lego Creator is the most innovative and creative collection of Lego products. It is ideal to leave the imagination free, without rules and without limits. Unlike the City, here the property is the construction. One of the stars of this collection is the Lego Creator 3 in 1 set, which allows the construction of three different models with the same pieces. They are intended for children over 7-8 years old.

Lego-themed sets, such as Imperial Star Destroyer, are inspired by cartoons, movies and comics. Some have had extraordinary success, but their production has been inexplicably stopped, being sought after by fans and collectors alike. The range of variants is huge: Lego Star Wars, Lego Harry Potter, Cars, Lego Super Heroes (Batman, Superman, Captain America, Spiderman etc.). Also worth mentioning are Lego’s own collections, such as Ultra Agents. These are recommended for children between the ages of 9 and 14, being ideal for recreating scenes from superhero movies. Moreover, similar to Lego are nanoblocks, the themed sets such as Pokémon Mini Series Nanoblock have caught the attention of children and adults alike, being a good way to spend time with or having them just for collection.

Lego Technic

Combining the usual parts with more sophisticated ones (wheels, gears, axles, engines), the Lego Technic is one of the most “technical” lego lines. It is an ideal lego collection for children over 10, who want to experiment with complex constructions, based on mechanics and robotics.

Lego Mindstorms

If Technically doesn’t seem to be enough, the Mindstorms series goes even further. In addition to the use of complex parts, this collection allows the control of robots built using the remote control, which transforms them into true teaching and experimental tools. These sets are recommended for children over 10 years and for those who are interested in technical looking toys.


Lego, without a doubt, are the most successful toys of all time, the name of “LEGO” becoming recognizable no matter what country we refer to. LEGO company currently has the largest sales in the construction toys industry and is ranked third on the market of toys of any kind.
