As fans of LEGO, new or veterans, we know that some sets can be a little in the pricey side, with the likes of Lion Knights Castle (10305), Hogwarts Castle (71043), Millennium Falcon (75192) and many more big sets, it can be daunting when looking at price tags in the LEGO store. But it’s not all big spends, you can grab some pretty decent entry level sets for less than a tenner!

Aimed more towards the younger fans, these smaller sets are great to get little ones interested in building at a slightly more advanced level compared to DUPLO. They can also attract older fans with some having exclusive Minifigures and/or parts. Take the LEGO The Lego Movie 2: Benny’s Space Squad (70841) for example, not only did it reignite our love for LEGO Space it also gave us four brightly coloured Space Minifigures and small side builds, all for the low cost of £8.99.

These sets are very affordable, they are often the cheapest options in-store if a set is what you’re after. Starting from £8.99, Children can use their pocket money to buy them, along with other in-store items such as a Build-a-Minifigure pack. Currently on the market from LEGO are a range of fun treats to pickup that won’t break the bank. There is something for everyone as most current themes offer several options, including LEGO City, Friends, Ninjago, Star Wars, Marvel and many more.

Amongst veteran LEGO collections, the smaller sets aren’t really worth picking up, unless they include an exclusive Minifigure or part as mentioned before. Many look at sets as a way to bump up their spare parts collection to build MOCs (my own creation), these smaller sets offer very little selection in that regard.

For me personally I look forward to seeing what LEGO produce in each wave, most recently the BrickHeadz range of sets have cost me dearly as there have been some amazing offerings such as Potted Groot and Sonic The Hedgehog. The twin packs do cost a little more but again for the price there are great and worth picking up if they float your boat.

If you shop online, head over to and filter your search to ‘Sets under £20‘, you’ll be presented with a lot of options and pleasantly surprised at what you see I’m sure. If you want your money to go that little bit further then shop around, The Entertainer, Smyths Toys Superstores, Amazon and other retailers offer regular discounts. Saving a couple of quid here and there all adds up and you’ll be able to spend the savings on a set, bonus!
