30 May 2016

When purchasing LEGO, for ease of scouting out a specific set, LEGO has assigned each set a model number. There are several major Canadian retailers selling LEGO.

This post will make it very easy for you to order the LEGO sets that YOU want, because now you can perform quick searches using the links below that take you directly to the LEGO section of each retailer! All you have to do is enter the model number (or name, if you prefer) of the set you're looking for, then compare prices. This will prove to be an invaluable tool for you to use over and over again, so you may want to bookmark this page.

Additional LEGO Info.

The Lego Store Canada has a 'Bricks & Pieces' service you can visit online if you have missing bricks, broken bricks or need to buy replacement brick pieces. They ask info. such as your age, the model set, what brick you are missing (thankfully they have photos of each piece) and what's wrong with it so that quality control can ensure this doesn't happen again. It looks as though small replacement bricks are free and should arrive in around 10-14 days. We had one brick in one of our sets that was dog-eared; it didn't seem to snap back on properly on the ends anymore. I sent the message along to the team using the on-line form from the link above. When using the form, make sure you enter your postal code with a space. Even though they ask for your 'State' on the form, they do recognize the Canadian Provinces. It was a quick and easy procedure. I then saw a message on the next screen that loaded:

  • Lose your building instructions? Don't worry, The LEGO Store Canada has you covered, with downloadable PDF instructions! You can print them or keep them on your pc or tablet to view.
  • Your child will want to join the LEGO Club and it's free to do so! It's designed for LEGO fans who are 5-9 years old. You can subscribe your child to the free LEGO Club Magazine and access the safe & secure LEGO Club website.
  • Where to store LEGO: You can purchase LEGO 'Bricks' or LEGO 'heads' in a bright sun-shiny yellow colour or LEGO zipper storage bags. (At the end of the day, it's whatever works best for you and your kids! It could even be as simple as an old rolling carry-on suitcase!)
  • Where to store AND play with LEGO: You will find a great idea for a fun and useful LEGO play and storage mat, here, in a recent post on Bargainmoose. Don't forget, there are also gorgeous LEGO tables on the market, that have a LEGO base on the entire table top, and storage drawers for LEGO underneath. Talk about hours of fun!
  • How to create with Lego: The Lego Ideas Book is the same price at Chapters Indigo, and Both retailers include free shipping on this book that is sure to guide you through a creative mix of ideas that will strike a LEGO designer chord in you.
  • Visit the link below, then click on, just under "Popular help topics", to view the answer to the question, How are LEGO toys made? I was surprised to learn that the first paragraph wasn't a fabrication - it almost reads like it is, initially, then the more you read, you realize - LEGO is such a massive industry, the story is true!

I was so fascinated by the LEGO creation process, I had to look up a video for it, too. Enjoy this! 4 minutes into the video, you will want to see a very cool job indeed! In one of our Bargainmoose posts, we discussed the inventors behind The Big Bang Theory Lego Set. Could you do that job, would you want to? Let us know in the comments!
