Lego has had something of a resurgence in recent years, with the Danish brick company expanding its collections to have something for every age, skill and interest.
From its range of Technic cars, perfect for gas stations, to its galaxy explorer spacecraft, Harry Potter set, “blissfully realistic” flower bouquets and range of advent calendars, there’s a build for every kind of Lego fan.
