Lego crazy in the house...

My 9 y.o. recently showed interest in Lego and pulled out my husband's old set from his childhood. I've decided to add to that tiny set with some new ones as gifts. Some of the larger sets are sooo expensive (around $150 - $200).

Now I'm excited about them too! I mean, really...they are really cool!

Does anyone know where I can find some great deals, or better yet some promo codes for Lego?

Happy Shopping and Thanks!

Usually, Legomaniacs never let go of their Legos! My 24-year-old son still has all of his, neatly organized by color in plastic containers, with a few amazing creations still on display. He lived and breathed Duplos and then Legos from age 2 - well, still!

Keep your eye out on the big stores and Amazon. There are lots of specials this time of year. Sometimes you can find them at the thrift store, too. And check Craigslist!

Lego magazine mailed to him. I'm pretty sure it's on their web site, but if not, let me know and I'll look for the address where I ordered it.

I'll check out all of those suggestions. I guess I didn't specify that it's my 9 y.o DAUGHTER. She is amazing and super cool in my book. She wants the neatest sets like the Monster Haunted House, The Hobbit series, and Creator. Yea, the most expensive ones!! It really does not help that I am excited about them too! My pocketbook is gonna feel it.

You also might want to check and see if there is a Lego Robotics team (FIRST Lego League) in the area if she's really into Legos. We started a team this year and it's amazing! The kids LOVE it. It doesn't have to be through a school, we had an all girl team comprised of girl scouts at our tournament.

I got a really great collection of Legos from there when a mom was desperate to winnow her son's collection.

Sign up for the Lego VIP membership (free) on their website. You get $5 or $10 in rewards for every $100 spent. DS as obsessed with Legos too, this is our first christmas without a wish list full of Legos.
