Here Are All The New LEGO Sets Coming Out in June

New LEGO Sets June 2022

June is typically a very popular month for LEGO launches in Europe. This June is no different: we’re looking at just shy of 100 new sets landing on our shelves next month. Phew.

Here, you’ll find information about all of the new LEGO sets coming out in June. Use the links below to jump to the section of LEGO sets you’d like to know more about.

New LEGO sets for June 2022: Table of Contents

It’s worth noting that not all of these sets launch on June 1st in North America; many sets won’t be available across the pond until 1st August.

Will you be buying any of June’s new LEGO releases? Let us know in the comments below. Way, way, below.

Creator Expert

LEGO 10302 Optimus Prime

LEGO 10302 Transformers Optimus Prime
  • RRP £149.99/$169.99
  • 1,508 pieces
  • Age 18+

Like a true Transformer, the LEGO model can convert between a Robot and alternative model. A few bends and folds – 19 articulation points, in fact – and Optimus Prime becomes a truck. Excitingly, this is the first time a LEGO model has been able to convert between two models without needing any rebuilding.

There’s all the bells and whistles you’d expect to find here, too. Optimus Prime complete with an ion blaster, Energon axe, an Energon Cube and the Autobot Matrix of Leadership. There’s even room to store the Matrix inside Optimus Prime’s chest chamber. You can read more about Optimus Prime by clicking here.

LEGO Ideas

LEGO Ideas 21333 The Starry Night

  • RRP £149.99/$169.99
  • 2,316 pieces
  • Age 18+

The set is based on a winning design from LEGO Ideas user legotruman. It’s a brick-built representation of Vincent Van Gogh’s famous painting of the same name – and it’s rather a sight to behold. It seems the LEGO design team has done a great job of keeping legotruman’s original design intact while also improving on it. While the original concept was a freestanding piece, it now appears in a frame – a really nice touch. Read more about The Starry Night here.

LEGO Art

LEGO Art 31206 The Rolling Stones

LEGO Art 31206 The Rolling Stones
  • RRP £129.99/$149.99
  • 1,998 pieces
  • Age 18+

If you love The Rolling Stones, the upcoming addition to the LEGO Art range will be of particular interest to you. It’s the iconic lips-and-tongue band logo, which can be mounted on your wall.

Unlike other LEGO Art sets up until this point, LEGO Art 31206 The Rolling Stones doesn’t come in a frame. It’s not square, either. Rather, it’s a cut-out of the logo, and has a bit more depth to it than a standard Art set. It’s very striking – but surely appeals to a very niche audience.

LEGO Architecture

LEGO Architecture 21058 Great Pyramid of Giza

LEGO Architecture 21058 Great Pyramid of Giza
  • RRP £124.99/$129.99
  • 1,476 pieces
  • Age 18+

LEGO has just revealed a brand new Architecture set: the Great Pyramid of Giza. It’s slightly different from other LEGO Architecture sets that have come before it, and that may just be the reason why we love it so much.

Pretty much every LEGO Architecture set so far represents a building or a landmark as it looks today, in the modern world. Whether it’s the Taj Mahal, The White House or the Great Wall of China, each set represents exactly how those landmarks appear today. But not this one. LEGO 21058 Great Pyramid of Giza takes us back in time to 26th Century BC and imagines how the pyramid might have looked when it was brand new.

LEGO Harry Potter

LEGO BrickHeadz 40560 Professors of Hogwarts

LEGO BrickHeadz 40560 Professors of Hogwarts
  • RRP £39.99/$39.99
  • 601 pieces
  • Age 10+

Professors of Hogwarts contains: Potions teacher Severus Snape, Transfiguration professor Minerva McGonagall, Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher Alastor ‘Mad-Eye’ Moody and Divination professor Sybill Trelawney.

There’s no denying the likeness of each professor; they’ve been wonderfully designed, and each packs in lots of noteworthy details. Trelawney has her trademark round glasses, of course, coupled with a headscarf and a printed shirt. Moody has his ‘mad eye’, and a printed robe adorned with buckles. McGonagall also has printed pieces, along with gold detailing on her hat and a golf charm around her neck. Finally, Snape is perhaps the plainest of them all, with a black robe and purple shirt, printed with buttons. But there’s no mistaking who he is!

LEGO Harry Potter 76408 12 Grimmauld Place

  • RRP £114.99/$119.99
  • 1,083 pieces
  • Age 8+
  • 9 minifigures

The secret headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix, 12 Grimmauld Place is a terraced house which appears out of nowhere. This set recreates that effect, having two sliding houses which reveal the HQ inbetween. Magic! The set’s packed with internal details, like bedrooms and a busy kitchen, and the 9 minifigures are surely going to be a draw for most Harry Potter fans. Read more about the set on LEGO.com.

LEGO Harry Potter 76403 The Ministry of Magic

  • RRP £89.99/$99.99
  • 990 pieces
  • Age 9+
  • 9 minifigures

The Ministry of Magic is one heck of an impressive building, and this 990 piece set goes some way into recreating a slice of its majesty. Stacked offices overlook a courtyard complete with decorative fountain, and there’s a magical phone box included, which provides access to the inside of the Ministry. What’s neat about this set is it’s modular, meaning the parts can be arranged in any number of ways. You can see more information on LEGO’s website.

LEGO Harry Potter 76407 The Shrieking Shack & Whomping Willow

  • RRP £79.99/$89.99
  • 777 pieces
  • Age 9+
  • 6 minifigures

Now for a slightly darker part of the Wizarding World. The Shrieking Shack and the Whomping Willow have been combined here to allow fans to recreate a n umber of scenes from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. It’s, of course, not the only set to feature the Whomping Willow, but this is the first time we’ve had the Shrieking Shack since 2004. Naturally, it’s a much more detailed take on the haunted house, and we think it looks great. See more on LEGO.com.

LEGO Harry Potter 76402 Hogwarts Dumbledore’s Office

  • RRP £69.99/$79.99
  • 654 pieces
  • Age 8+
  • 6 minifigures

Designed to go alongside the range of other Hogwarts sets, Dumbledor’s Office recreates the iconic workspace of Hogwarts’ head teacher.

A playset through and through, there are six minifigures to enjoy, along with iconic features such as the Pensieve and Harry’s Invisibility Cloak. Which may or may not actually make him invisible. You can find more information on LEGO’s website.

LEGO Harry Potter 76401 Hogwarts Courtyard: Sirius’ Rescue

  • RRP £44.99/$49.99
  • 345 pieces
  • Age 8+
  • 3 minifigures

Here’s another scene from The Prisoner of Azkaban; this time, the one where Harry and Hermione send Sirius off on the back of Buckbeak.

It’s a fairly small set, but one that’s compatible with other Hogwarts Castle sets to create a bigger scene. There are some nice pieces here, including a winged Hippogriff and a circular staircase. See more at LEGO.com.

LEGO Harry Potter 76406 Hungarian Horntail Dragon

  • RRP £44.99/$49.99
  • 671 pieces
  • Age 10+
  • 1 minifigure

This LEGO Harry Potter set is one more suited to adults who like to display their models, I think. Like the Hedwig and Fawkes sets, it’s build upon a stand along with a crank that can make the wings flap. We do love a good LEGO dragon, and this one is more realistic than some of the Ninjago creations. Well, as realistic as a dragon can be, anyway. See more information on LEGO’s store page.

LEGO Harry Potter 76400 Hogwarts Carriage and Thestrals

  • RRP £17.99/$19.99
  • 121 pieces
  • Age 7+
  • 2 minifigures

The smallest of all the upcoming LEGO Harry Potter set is this one featuring Harry and Luna Lovegood. This is only the third set to feature a Thestral, a magical creature that can only be seen by people who have been touched by death. There’s also a carriage, a buildable tree and a baby Thestral. Aww. See more of the set on LEGO.com by clicking here.

LEGO Star Wars

LEGO Star Wars 75325 The Mandalorian’s N-1 Starfighter

  • RRP £54.99/$59.99
  • 412 pieces
  • Age 9+
  • 2 minifigures

If you’ve seen Disney+’s The Book of Boba Fett, then you’ve undoubtedly seen The Mandalorian’s newest transportation – the N-1 Starfighter. It’s only natural we’d get a LEGO version of it, but we didn’t quite expect to see it so soon. Here it is, and it looks fantastic. There’s a cockpit where Mando can sit, and of course a passenger space for Grogu (i.e. Baby Yoda). It also has spring-loaded shooters, because where’s the fun of a Starfighter that isn’t ready for battle?

LEGO Marvel

LEGO Marvel 76217 I Am Groot

LEGO Marvel I Am Groot
  • RRP £44.99/$54.99
  • 476 pieces
  • Age 10+

A new set has appeared in the “coming soon” section of the LEGO store. And one that’s pretty darn adorable. LEGO Marvel I Am Groot is scheduled for 1st June release, and we’re already in love with it.

Made up of 476 pieces, I Am Groot stands at 10.2 inches/26 cm tall. He’s not massive, then, but good things come in small packages as they say. His arms and legs are poseable, making for some excellent display opportunities – or for younger builders to use him as a play figure.

LEGO Marvel 76216 Iron Man Armoury

LEGO Marvel Iron Man Armoury 76216
  • RRP £79.99/$89.99
  • 496 pieces
  • Age 7+
  • 8 minifigures

If you like Iron Man minifigures, you’re going to want to get your hands on the upcoming LEGO Marvel 76216 Iron Man Armoury. It’ll be available in stores from 1st June, and it contains no less than eight minifigures.

This isn’t the first time we’ve had an Iron Man Armoury set. The now-retired LEGO 76167 shared the same name, and offered a smaller version of what’s on offer here. But this larger Iron Man Armoury includes more Iron Man configurations, a larger build (with more mech suit storage pods) and more accessories.

LEGO City

LEGO City 60337 Express Passenger Train

  • RRP £129.99/$179.99
  • 764 pieces
  • 6 minifigures
  • Age 7+

A driver’s cab and two passenger carts make up the next LEGO City Express Passenger Train. This one comes with a good amount of track (16 curved pieces and 8 straight pieces) and Powered Up functions. What we especially like is that the power functions come with a remote control – something that few sets still get, in favour of an app (though you can use an app here if you prefer). There’s also working lights on the train – super cool.

LEGO City 60336 Freight Train

  • RRP £159.99/$189.99
  • 1,153 pieces
  • 6 minifigures
  • Age 7+

There’s a lot going on in the Freight Train set, but we love it. Along with the train and its carriages, there’s a forklift, a couple of small cars and, more importantly, a lot of track. You’ll get 16 curved pieces, 16 straight pieces and a switch. Like the Passenger Train, this one also comes with Powered Up controls, also with a remote control.

LEGO City 60335 Train Station

  • RRP £69.99/$99.99
  • 907 pieces
  • 6 minifigures
  • Age 7+

What good is a train system without a station? We’re loving this 907-piece station and all the details it packs in. There’s of course the station and platform itself, with grinningly-good branding. There’s also a portaloo, a work truck, and a commuter bus to help people reach the station. Oh, and a LEGO City road plate with a train crossing on it finish it off nicely.

LEGO City 40526 Electric Scooters & Charging Dock

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is LEGO-City-Electric-Scooters-and-Charging-Dock-40526-1.jpg
  • RRP £11.99/$12.99
  • 50 pieces
  • Age 6+
  • 3 minifigures

Coming in a minifigure-shaped blister pack rather than a box, the Electric Scooters & Charging Dock set is designed to be an accessory to a bigger build. It’s a great way to modernise LEGO City and providing its residents a way to get around. The minifigures included are pretty cool, too: we’ve got two skaters and one mechanic. More information is available on LEGO.com.

LEGO City 60347 Grocery Store

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is LEGO-City-60347-Grocery-Store-1.jpg
  • RRP £54.99/$69.99
  • 404 pieces
  • Age 6+
  • 5 minifigures

While £54.99 feels very steep for an unbranded 404-piece set, there’s no denying just how adorable the LEGO City Grocery Store is. It feels a long time coming; we’ve had hospitals, police and fire stations, petrol stations and who-knows-what else – but somewhere for LEGO City residents to buy their food? Finally, you can take your minifigs shopping to this delightful supermarket. There’s a parking lot complete with mini car and forklift truck. And because LEGO is all about environmental awareness these days, we’ve even got solar panels on the roof. See more at LEGO.com.

LEGO City 60345 Farmers Market Van

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is LEGO-City-60345-Farmers-Market-Van-1.jpg
  • RRP £24.99/$44.99
  • 310 pieces
  • Age 5+
  • 3 minifigures

It may look like a repurposed ice cream van, but we don’t care. This fruit and veg van looks fantastic, thanks to the giant carrot stuck on top. It even comes with a vegetable patch, with growing chilis, grapes and corn. We love it. You can read more information and see more images on LEGO’s store page.

LEGO City 60346 Barn & Farm Animals

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is LEGO-City-60346-Barn-Farm-Animals-1.jpg
  • RRP £44.99/$69.99
  • 230 pieces
  • Age 4+
  • 4 minifigures

Since it’s a 4+ set, this LEGO Barn & Farm Animals is a simple build that the youngest builders can get to grips with. Typically, pieces are larger, and only the simplest construction methods are used. Regardless, this is a great-looking set that packs in a lot of detail. Aside from the barn itself, we have a tractor and trailer, pigs, sheep, cows, a small greenhouse and plenty of tools to get to work on the farm with. See more information on LEGO’s store page.

LEGO City 60344 Chicken Henhouse

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is LEGO-City-60344-Chicken-Henhouse-1.jpg
  • RRP £8.99/$9.99
  • 101 pieces
  • Age 5+
  • 1 minifigure

For a small pocket-money set, the Chicken Henhouse is wonderful. Firstly, we love the detailing on the henhouse itself. And of course, it contains chickens! There are eggs too – we’ll let the fact that they’re almost as big as the chickens themselves slide. There’s a minifigure, of course, as well as a little ATV to help her get from the henhouse back to the farm.

LEGO City 60313 Space Ride Amusement Truck

  • RRP £34.99/$49.99
  • 433 pieces
  • Age 6+
  • 3 minifigures

This looks like a seriously great set for just £34.99. If you’ve already got some LEGO fairground sets, it’ll make a great addition. We love the fact that the ride is on the back of a truck, just like a real travelling fair. And the ride itself – alien-themed, of course – looks like a lot of fun.

LEGO City 60354 Mars Spacecraft Exploration Missions

  • RRP £24.99/$39.99
  • 298 pieces
  • Age 6+
  • 3 minifigures

This is the first of three new “Missions ” sets in the LEGO Ideas range. With an accompanying app, kids can use the bricks to engage in a number of challenges, typically free-building activities. As you can see, the set comes with a large amount of random pieces which can be used to modify the included ship and create other things.

LEGO City 60355 Water Police Detective Missions

  • RRP £24.99/$39.99
  • 278 pieces
  • Age 6+
  • 4 minifigures

Here’s another Mission set, and this time it’s water-based. Again, app support provides kids with various building challenges, allowing them to customise the included boat and get creative with their own designs.

For example, the app might say “build faster engines”, and using the provided pieces, you’ll need to come up with a solution. It’s like gamifying LEGO building, and we love it.

LEGO City 60353 Wild Animal Rescue Missions

  • RRP £24.99/$39.99
  • 246 pieces
  • Age 6+
  • 3 minifigures

The final Mission set is wild-animal themed. There’s a crocodile, a panther cub, an owl, a frog and a hare, along with plenty of other pieces to create something special. The app-based missions here revolve around building structures to save and rescue the animals.

LEGO City Stuntz

LEGO City 60339 Double Loop Stunt Arena

  • RRP £124.99/$149.99
  • 598 pieces
  • 7 minifigures
  • Age 7+

That’s a lot of money for a City set, but we’ve got to admit we’re fascinated by the double loops, and would like to see it in action.

LEGO City 60338 Smashing Chimpanzee Stunt Loop

  • RRP £44.99/$69.99
  • 226 pieces
  • 3 minifigures
  • Age 7+

If the price tag of the double loop set is a little too eye-watering for you, hopefully this one is a little more reasonable. And we can confirm that no chimpanzees were harmed in the making of this set.

LEGO City 60340 The Blade Stunt Challenge

  • RRP £17.99/$34.99
  • 154 pieces
  • 2 minifigures
  • Age 5+

Now, forget about loop-de-loops. Here’s a challenge for the truly daring. Time a jump just right to get through the blades before… well, before something terrible happens. We’re digging the new range of Stuntz sets, actually. Chaining some of them together will make for a truly wonderful obstacle course.

LEGO City 60341 The Knockdown Stunt Challenge

  • RRP £17.99/$34.99
  • 117 pieces
  • 2 minifigures
  • Age 5+

The piece count of LEGO City Stuntz The Knockdown Stunt Challenge might be low, but we love this set nonetheless. The structure reminds of of something straight out of Ultimate Wipeout. And the minifigures are simply wonderful.

As we’ve said previously, add this set onto some existing Stuntz sets and you’ve got a fantastic gauntlet to try and make your way through.

LEGO City 60342 The Shark Attack Stunt Challenge

  • RRP £17.99/$34.99
  • 122 pieces
  • Age 5+
  • Two minifigures (and a skeleton)

Do skeletons count as minifigures? We’re never quite sure. Their bodies are less substantial, but they have the same size head. Either way, there’s a skeleton here, adding a very nice touch to this piratey Stuntz set. The idea is to get your bike through the “shark tank” before getting hit by a swinging shark. We reckon it’s going to be pretty difficult. But we’re looking forward to trying.

LEGO Creator 3-in-1

LEGO Creator 3-in-1 31132 Viking Ship and the Midgard Serpent

  • RRP £104.99/$119.99
  • 1,192 pieces
  • Age 9+
  • 4 minifigures

The main selling point of this Creator 3-in-1 set is undoubtedly the Viking ship. It looks fantastic, with its carved head, shields adorning the side and brick-built sail. It really does look like the real deal. The sub-builds look interesting too: there’s a Viking lodge, and a mythical Fenris wolf. We know which one we’ll be building, though. If you opt for the Viking Ship build, there’s also a serpent to go with it.

We just wish it was a little cheaper. £104.99 is a lot to ask; that price is sneaking into Creator Expert territory. More information is available on LEGO.com.

LEGO Creator 3-in-1 31130 Sunken Treasure Mission

  • RRP £24.99/$34.99
  • 522 pieces
  • Age 8+
  • 2 minifigures

For underwater fans, the Sunken Treasure Mission looks a lot of fun. The three different builds available all feature one sea creature: there’s a giant Octopus, a giant Lobster or a Manta Ray. Whichever one you choose, there are some accompanying builds to go alongside them too, including a little submarine-type vehicle. We’d have rather the focus been on the sea creatures, but it’ll make a fun playset for younger builders. More information is available on LEGO.com.

LEGO Creator 3-in-1 31131 Downtown Noodle Shop

  • RRP £39.99/$44.99
  • 569 pieces
  • Age 8+
  • 2 minifigures

These small building sets have become very popular in the 3-in-1 range in recent years. They feel almost like a precursor to LEGO’s adult-focused Modular range; a bunch of these can be used to create a street lineup, just in the same way as a Modular. They’re of course less detailed, but arguably carry just as much character. The Downtown Noodle Shop is no different. We love the noodle sign on the side of the building, the the street level detail, including the vending machine and ice-cream cart is a nice touch.

The secondary builds are a a Bike Shop or a small arcade, which features three gaming machines. This seems to offer excellent value for £39.99. More information is available on LEGO.com.

LEGO Ninjago

LEGO Ninjago 71774 Lloyd’s Golden Ultra Dragon

  • RRP £124.99/$139.99
  • 989 pieces
  • Age 9+
  • 9 minifigures

A three-headed golden dragon? Count us in! It’s hard to grasp the scale of this set from an image alone, but judging by previous Ninjago dragons, we think it’s going to be very impressive indeed. Not to mention the nine minifigures included.

LEGO Ninjago 71775 Nya’s Samurai X Mech

  • RRP £99.99/$119.99
  • 1,003 pieces
  • Age 10+
  • 8 minifigures

Who doesn’t love a hulking mech? We adore the colours of Nya’s Samurai X Mech – that blue is simply gorgeous. And as always, it comes with a bunch of really cool minifigures.

LEGO Ninjago 71773 Kai’s Golden Dragon Raider

  • RRP £74.99/$89.99
  • 624 pieces
  • Age 8+
  • 6 minifigures

Kai’s Golden Dragon Raider is a multi-terrain vehicle that packs in a ton of functions. We have to admit, though, it’s those colourful minifigures that have our attention.

LEGO Ninjago 71771 The Crystal King Temple

  • RRP £69.99/$79.99
  • 703 pieces
  • Age 8+
  • 5 minifigures

Fancy adding a sinister-looking tower to your LEGO Ninjago collection? This is the set for you.

There’s quite a lot going on here, and like a lot of Ninjago sets, we once again feel that the box art isn’t going to do it justice. Those towers are going to be surprisingly tall, offering a great playset.

LEGO Ninjago 71772 The Crystal King

  • RRP £54.99
  • 722 pieces
  • Age 9+
  • 4 minifigures

And here’s a great, hulking Crystal King to protect his Crystal Tower. For £55, this looks to be an impressively-size beast.

LEGO Ninjago 71769 Cole’s Dragon Cruiser

  • RRP £39.99/$44.99
  • 384 pieces
  • 4 minifigures
  • Age 8+

Here’s another Ninjago vehicle, although quite a bit smaller this time. Its chunky tyres make it ideal for going off-roading. It has an eye-catching orange colour scheme, and four well-designed minifigures round off the set.

LEGO Ninjago 71759 Ninja Dragon Temple

  • RRP £34.99/$39.99
  • 161 pieces
  • 4 minifigures
  • Age 4+

Being a 4+ set, the Ninja Dragon Temple is a rather simple one. But there’s quite a bit going on: there’s a blue and red dragon, with room for a minifigure to ride, and a motorbike. Two little structures finish it off.

LEGO Ninjago 71770 Zane’s Golden Dragon Jet

  • RRP £24.99/$29.99
  • 258 pieces
  • 3 minifigures
  • Age 7+

Zane’s Golden Dragon Jet doesn’t actually fly, just in case you were wondering. It does, however, swoosh through the air quite wonderfully. And its pointed, angular design looks rather catching. We’ve had plenty of Ninjago jets before, of course. But we love the amount of gold bricks on show in this one.

LEGO Ninjago 71768 Jay’s Golden Dragon Motorbike

  • RRP £17.99/$19.99
  • 137 pieces
  • Age 7+
  • 2 minifigures

If you’d rather not fly through the air, here’s another alternative: a two-wheeled motorbike to whizz around on. Once again, it’s covered in golden bricks, which look simply wonderful. And the minifigures here are sublime. Look at the wings on Jay! We’re also digging the robot-spider-monster that’s pursuing him.

LEGO Monkie Kid

LEGO Monkie Kid 80039 The Heavenly Realms

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is LEGO-Monkie-Kid-80039-The-Heavenly-Realms-1.jpg
  • RRP £149.99/$179.99
  • 2,433 pieces
  • Age 10+
  • 8 minifigures

Just look at it! The Heavenly Realms is every bit as beautiful as its name suggests. It’s the traditional architecture details that really grab us here; the small golden details on rooftops, those gorgeous green tiles to create definition in the building’s structure. It looks huge and wonderfully complex, and we can’t wait to see it in the flesh.

LEGO 80038 Monkie Kid’s Team Van

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is LEGO-80038-Monkie-Kids-Team-Van-1.jpg
  • RRP £89.99/$129.99
  • 1,406 pieces
  • Age 9+
  • 6 minifigures

At first glance, Monkie Kid’s Team Van doesn’t look that much. But when you realise the scale of this thing – and the various combinations it can be built in – it’s quite a formidable set. You can stack the modular sections high, making a monsterous vehicle if you like. or you can have a more standard-sized truck, with a small building filled with fun details. Consider the wonderful minifigures, little additions like a tuk-tuk and go-kart, and you’ve got a seriously cool playset on your hands.

LEGO Monkie Kid 80037 Dragon of the East

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is LEGO-Monkie-Kid-80037-Dragon-of-the-East-1.jpg
  • RRP £54.99/$79.99
  • 880 pieces
  • Age 8+
  • 4 minifigures

Finally, here’s the Dragon of the East, a funky-coloured brick-built dragon complete with underwater ships, four minifigures, and plenty of accessories. We’re big fans of dragons, and this one looks to be something rather different from those we normally see in Ninjago sets. And we adore the colours. It’s hard to imagine the scale of it, but considering it’s made up of 880 pieces, we’re wagering it’s bigger than it looks.

LEGO Minecraft

LEGO Minecraft 21188 The Llama Village

  • RRP £114.99/$129.99
  • 1,252 pieces
  • Age 9+
  • 6 minifigures

The biggest Minecraft set from the latest wave, it’s a little pricey at $130. But it’s impressive: the main structure is shaped like a llama pharaoh. And with lots of minifigures and Minecraft animals included, it’s a seriously impressive playset.

LEGO Minecraft 21187 The Red Barn

  • RRP £89.99/$89.99
  • 799 pieces
  • 2 minifigures
  • Age 9+

We love a classic barn, even if it is blocky and Minecraft-shaped. But there’s a lot to like in this set – not least the slew of Minecraft animals included.

LEGO Minecraft 21186 The Ice Castle

  • RRP £44.99/$49.99
  • 499 pieces
  • 6 minifigures
  • Age 8+

This is a fairly simple but effective build. We’re loving the fact that it comes with so many minifigures, though. The perfect battleground for setting up combat against those pesky creepers.

LEGO Minecraft 21187 The Nether Bastion

  • RRP £29.99/$34.99
  • 300 pieces
  • 3 minifigures
  • Age 8+

Here’s a slightly darker and more ominous-looking LEGO Minecraft set. The Piglins might be dangerous but we can’t help admire how adorable their minifigure counterparts are.

LEGO Minecraft 21184 The Bakery

  • RRP £19.99/$24.99
  • 154 pieces
  • 3 minifigures
  • Age 8+

They still enjoy baked goods in the world of Minecraft, you know. This little build includes a bakery structure complete with some bread and a cake. And, of course, there’s a few Minecraft minifigures to go along with it, including an adorable goat.

LEGO Friends

LEGO Friends 41714 Andrea’s Theater School

  • RRP £89.99/$99.99
  • 1,154 pieces
  • Age 8+
  • 4 mini-dolls

We love the amount of detail packed into Andrea’s Theater School. Note the real fabric curtains – they’re even on rails so they can be opened and closed. And those balconies! Simply beautiful.

LEGO Friends 41722 Horse Show Trailer

  • RRP £89.99/$99.99
  • 989 pieces
  • 3 mini-dolls (and two horses)
  • Age 8+

Hooray for LEGO horses! This is a very nice-looking horse box, and it’s huge. You’d fit about a dozen LEGO horses in there, we reckon.

LEGO Friends 41721 Organic Farm

  • RRP £74.99/$89.99
  • 826 pieces
  • Age 7+
  • 4 mini-dolls

We’re getting quite a few farm-based sets from LEGO this time around, and this Friends one might just be our favourite. It’s simply beautiful.

LEGO Friends 41711 Emma’s Art School

  • RRP £59.99/$69.99
  • 844 pieces
  • Age 8+
  • 3 mini-dolls

This is incredible value for 844 pieces in our opinion. And check out those LEGO Dots plates used as art installations! Cross-branding; we love it.

LEGO Friends 41708 Roller Disco Arcade

  • RRP £54.99/$59.99
  • 642 pieces
  • 3 mini-dolls
  • Age 7+

There’s one thing that LEGO Friends sets always nail: they’re always bright, colourful, and so much fun. We love the bowling alley in the middle of this one.

LEGO Friends 41720 Water Park

  • RRP £54.99/$49.99
  • 373 pieces
  • 3 mini-dolls
  • Age 6+

Another ridiculously cute LEGO Friends set here. We love the toilet cubicle! So practical. And those slides look great fun. Weeeeee.

LEGO Friends 41717 Mia’s Wildlife Rescue

  • RRP £44.99/$49.99
  • 430 pieces
  • 3 mini-dolls, a giraffe and a baby zebra
  • Age 7+

Oh gosh, just look at that giraffe. Do you need any other reason to buy this set? We thought not. That’s not all there is to it, of course. A simple two-story building provides space for the Rescue Centre itself, and there’s also a small jeep for your mini-dolls to whizz around in.

LEGO Friends 41716 Stephanie’s Sailing Adventure

  • RRP £34.99/$39.99
  • 304 pieces
  • 3 mini-dolls
  • Age 7+

The beautifully bright colours of LEGO Friends continues into Stephanie’s sailboat, which comes complete with gorgeous printed sails. There’s even a small dock to set up besides it. Unfortunately, this one doesn’t actually float, so don’t try to take it into the bathtub.

LEGO Friends 41715 Ice-Cream Truck

  • RRP £17.99/$19.99
  • 84 pieces
  • 2 mini-dolls
  • Age 4+

This Ice-Cream Truck is a 4+ set, so it’s very simple to build. It looks like the base of the ice-cream truck is one large piece, so it’s a great place for younger builders to start. The finished model is still very effective though. We love the ice cream motif on top of the van. And just how cute is that LEGO dog?

LEGO Friends 41712 Recycling Truck

  • RRP £17.99/$19.99
  • 259 pieces
  • 2 mini-dolls (and a raccoon)
  • Age 6+

The LEGO Friends may know how to have a good time, but they also know how to take care of their environment. And this recycling truck proves that. With three receptacles, you can pick up and sort trash by colour and type using the matching bins. The highlight, though? That little raccoon. We love him.

LEGO Friends 41705 Heartlake City Pizzeria

  • RRP £12.99/$14.99
  • 144 pieces
  • 2 mini-dolls
  • Age 5+

Mamma mia! It’s-a pizza time! It may be a pocket money-priced set, but this pizzeria is just lovely. We’re digging Olivia’s chef hat and the very official-looking pizza box. There’s also a pizza over, a small shop front (with pizza signage – yummy) and a seating area. A bit of greenery around the structures adds a nice finishing touch.

LEGO Friends 41710 Surfer Beach Fun

  • RRP £24.99/$39.99
  • 288 pieces
  • 3 mini-dolls
  • Age 6+

There’s quite a lot going on in Surfer Beach fun. We’ve got a windsurfing board, an inflatable unicorn water toy, a lifeguard station and an adorable little beach shack. The lifeguard station comes complete with its own slice of the ocean, featuring fish and other sea creatures. And the beach shack looks like it stocks various useful items, like snacks and beach accessories.

LEGO Friends 41719 Mobile Fashion Boutique

  • RRP £8.99/$9.99
  • 94 pieces
  • Age 6+
  • Two mini-dolls

Now we’re on to the really small LEGO Friends sets. This Mobile Fashion Boutique will make a lovely accessory to any bigger Heartlake City setup.

Complete with accessories your mini-doll can actually use to a mirror to check themselves out in, it’s just lovely. And, of course, it comes in the LEGO Friends signature bright colours.

LEGO Friends 41696 Pony Washing Stable

  • RRP £8.99/$9.99
  • 60 pieces
  • Age 4+
  • Two mini-dolls (and a pony)

We’re pretty impressed that a set costing just $9.99 actually comes with a pony. These types of animals usually bring a premium. There are also two mini-dolls included (Mia and Daniel, if you must know) along with a small stable structure. There’s a sink, a tub, and just about everything you need to keep your adorable pony clean and glam.

LEGO Classic

LEGO Classic 11020 Build Together

  • RRP £89.99/$99.99
  • 1,601 pieces
  • Age 5+

This feels a little steep for a Classic box, but there’s a lot we like here. A sorting box! Make this standard please, LEGO. We also like that it includes multiple instruction booklets, promoting people building together.

LEGO Classic 11022 Space Mission

  • RRP £69.99/$69.99
  • 1,700 pieces
  • Age 5+

This is unusual: a Classic set with a very specific theme. It’s a huge box of bricks, and of course it can be used to build just about anything. But it comes with instructinos on how to build a rocket, a shuttle and more.

LEGO Disney

LEGO Disney Cinderella and Prince Charming’s Castle

  • RRP £64.99/$79.99
  • 365 pieces
  • Age 5+
  • 3 mini-dolls

This is a smaller take on other Disney Castles out there, but it’s nonetheless charming. It’s colourful and bright, and will make the perfect playset for any wannabe princess (or prince). We love the translucent towers, complete with golden flags.

And, if you look to the right-hand side, there’s a candlestick which looks suspiciously like Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast. We wonder if Cogsworth is hiding around there somewhere…

LEGO Disney Frozen 43204 Anna and Olaf’s Castle Fun

  • RRP £29.99/$29.99
  • 108 pieces
  • 2 mini-dolls (and a horse)
  • Age 4+

Here’s another 4+ set, which means an easy build with big, easy to assemble pieces. The Anna and Olaf mini-dolls are simply adorable, however. And the castle itself, although simple, looks great thanks to the turquoise-coloured pieces.

LEGO Disney Mickey and Friends

LEGO Disney Mickey and Friends 10780 Castle Defenders

  • RRP £44.99/$54.99
  • 215 pieces
  • Age 4+
  • 4 minifigures

Despite being a 4+ set, and therefore a super-simple build, we think this set is going to appeal to LEGO fans of all ages. Why? Just check out those minifigures. Mickey as a knight! Donald Duck as a jester! They’re simply wonderful.

LEGO Disney Mickey and Friends 10778 Mickey , Minnie and Goofy’s Fairground Fun

  • RRP £24.99/$34.99
  • 184 pieces
  • Age 4+
  • 3 minifigures

A simple selection of fairground rides makes this a wonderfully fun set for younger builders. There’s a rollercoaster, which two minifigures can ride at once, and a merry-go-round, again with space for two riders. Along with a ticket booth, a strength game and a food vendor, there’s plenty to play with here.

LEGO Disney Mickey and Friends 10777 Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse’s Camping Trip

  • RRP £17.99/$24.99
  • 103 pieces
  • Age 4+
  • 2 minifigures (plus Pluto the dog)

How adorable is this retro-styled caravan? Thre’s a car, with room for aminifigure to drive, and a cavaran where Mickey and Minnie can relax or make a snack. There’s also a campfire complete with two seats, two camping beds, and a number of accessories. The highlight, though, is surely Pluto the dog. What a good boy.

LEGO Dots

LEGO Dots 41961 Designer Toolkit – Patterns

  • RRP £54.99/$59.99
  • 1,096 pieces
  • Age 8+

This is the most expensive Dots set yet, but it’s also the most comprehensive. We imagine we’ll see more Designer Toolkits to come in the future. There’s everything you need here to get stuck into multiple projects at once.

LEGO Dots 41962 Unicorn Creative Family Pack

  • RRP £44.99
  • 707 pieces
  • Age 6+

Here’s another set packing in lots of mini projects. We love the LEGO bunting! And we’re fans of LEGO Dots art, so the ability to create another little frame of wall art here is great.

LEGO Dots 41957 Adhesive Patches Mega Pack

  • RRP £24.99/$29.99
  • 486 pieces
  • Age 6+

This Dots pack is all about creating small mosaics. Thanks to included sticky patches, you can then stick them to just about any surface you can think of. It’s a great idea. And the amount of pieces included gives you great freedom as to what you design. Your imagination is the limit.

LEGO Dots 41956 Ice Cream Picture Frames & Bracelet

  • RRP £24.99/$29.99
  • 474 pieces
  • Age 6+

We’ve had LEGO photo frames before, but nothing quite as wonderful and unique as this ice-lolly themed one. The completed build looks like three lollipops stacked together, with each one providing space for a photograph. There’s also a matching bracelet to be made.

As always with LEGO Dots, the colours can be customised to your own liking, and there’s a decent selection included in the box to allow for creativity to flow.

LEGO Dots 41960 Big Box

  • RRP £21.99/$29.99
  • 479 pieces
  • Age 7+

If you want a little box to keep your trinkets, jewellery or important items in, we think this LEGO Dots Big Box does the job rather nicely. The box, when finished, in a generous 5.5 inches square, offering a good amount of storage for those small items. And, of course, its lid can be decorated however you choose.

LEGO Dots 41959 Cute Panda Tray

  • RRP £17.99/$19.99
  • 517 pieces
  • Age 6+

If you’d rather have an open tray than a closed box, the Cute Panda Tray might be for you. This adorable set provides a bit of open storage space in the shape of a panda sitting down. You can leave the panda black and white coloured if you’d like, or adorn it with colourful Dots to make it truly personalised. Either way, it looks great.
