    Lego

    For anyone that likes lego, or have children that like lego, or grandchildren that like lego. The Daily Mail is doing a GREAT deal starting tomorrow.

    From the 10th to the 17th of this month, they are giving you a voucher, which you can exchange in WhSmith (on the day) for a lego set.

    The following are on offer.

    Saturday - 80p

    Lego SpiderMan and Spider Copter

    Sunday - £1.50

    Lego Movie Super Secret Police Enforcer

    Monday - 55p

    Lego Star Wars Imperial Shuttle

    Tuesday - 55p

    Lego Creator Transport Plane

    Wednesday - 55p

    Lego City Police ATV

    Thursday - 55p

    Lego Star Wars ARC-170 Starfighter

    Friday - 55p

    Lego Batman Batwing

    Saturday - 80p

    Lego Batman Tumbler


    Each set on Amazon and Ebay are between £8.99 and £15.99, so buying them for £5.85 (total for all of the papers), is a bargain! Enjoy! (I know I will!)

    Love Lego, hate The Mail. Sadly, my Mail hatred wins there. Can't see a non-rag doing an offer like this though!

    You're welcome. @ICTLady some stores (Morrisons, Toys'r'us and WHSmiths) may have spares of previous sets, so could be worth asking.

    I however have gotten them each day so far, can't complain, daughter (5 on Friday) has been having fun building them, and following the instructions. She is so proud of her achievements in making them.

    Also, join the lego club, they do giveaways every so often for the "first X amount of people", so far, won a lego chima kit (includes figure with "body armour" and a chima stand), and a lego "transport vehicle". No complaints at all!

    started collecting sets already of this stuff for my boy, (hes only 1 atm) as the price just seems to be getting higher and higher for the little plastic lumps !

    I can remember my sister having a bucket full of this stuff as a child, which cost my parents £16 then, nowadays that would be about £70 for the amount she had.

    I have a tub of the stuff at my mums in her attic, well over 4000 blocks in there. Looked in Argos for a set today, £15 for 224 blocks! Todays money, if I were to match that amount for my daughter, it would be £270 when my mum spent less than £30 on it total (she got them in boxes of 500 pieces). My brothers and I loved playing with legos as a kid. Also, these sets are on ebay, and they're priced up (and have bids) between £8-£16...its nuts!

    @SiliconAlley_Sam You guys could do a staff outing to Morrisons to get your lego!

    (It's about 100 meters away from their office)

    Slightly different but is anyone collecting the Lego Simpsons figures? I'm getting some more today but it's inevitable I'm gonna need to trade a few, I have 13 and need Krusty, Ned and Mr. Burns before having a complete collection.

    I've bought a couple (got done by advertising in WHSMiths :-) )....I'm not sure If I'll be "collecting" as such, but may well be tempted to buy a few more :-) I was very happy though, in the two packs I've bought I got Itchy and Scratchy :-)
