    I've a child who's Lego mad but loves making there own creations and is too young too follow instructions on exact builds. So I'm adding to our Lego and Santa is going to bring doors, windows, people, flowers and maybe other accessories? From looking online and in Smyths these can only be bought in sets. We don't need blocks so I don't want to buy sets. Has anyone any discount codes for Lego.com or is there other sites I could buy them from please?
    Appreciate any help. Thanks

  • Not 100% the same thing - but Tesco have this 'superpack' on offer at the moment for €29.25 - given the volume of pieces it might be a handy way to get started for them. (you might have to build the truck part - but I suspect given the scale of it, might be good for the age range you're talking about).

  • Thanks for the help. The Tesco item isn't what I'm after. Lego. com has some stuff I'm after. Has anyone used Bricklink. com? Is it reliable? I've used done deal and adverts but never ebay or anything else




  • Bricklink is akin to ebay in that you buy the bricks from various vendors but I've never had an issue with it.

    Honestly though, is there a reason you don't want more bricks? I can't see you getting better value buying individual windows and doors etc than you'd get buying one of the Classic sets and, in my experience, there's never such a thing as too many bricks!




  • With individual costing and postage, you might spend X amount on accessory parts from one seller on Bricklink and for a bit extra get a large Classic set with almost as much accessories and a pile of bricks. It's a debate.

    You can make a Wanted List on Bricklink, fill it with windows, flowers, trees, bicycles etc and then go to 'buy' them all and see if one seller has most of what you're looking for. You might get lucky and find one with lots and some cheap City minifigures (typically the least expensive) and have it all arrive in the post in a few days.

    How old?
    You can buy individual bricks on lego.com

    Brick link will be cheaper.
