If you have a kid, chances are you are aware of LEGO. These tiny, colorful bricks have been a popular toy since the company was founded in 1932. They’ve even been the foundation for four movies. But odds are, you’re probably also aware that LEGO sets can get pricey—and quickly. So what do you do if your child keeps wanting additional sets but you’re struggling to keep up?

Well, consider a LEGO subscription. Each month, your child will receive at least one new build for less than a new kit would cost you in-store—plus some subscriptions really encourage your child to be creative and create something unique. So for your little LEGO fan at home, here are the best LEGOsubscriptions to consider.

Why We Chose It

Affordably priced, this subscription sends you a surprise build every month.

Pros
  • New kit every month plus accessories

  • Can save on the monthly cost with bundles

  • Unique and exclusive builds included

Cons
  • May receive LEGO compatible building kits

  • Shipping is extra

Brick Loot was created in 2013 by then 9-year-old Parker Krex, who was underwhelmed by the available subscription box options meant for gamers and toy-lovers. A LEGO aficionado who began reviewing them on YouTube at just age 4, Krex knew how exciting it would be to open up a box loaded with bricks and fun extras every month. Turns out, he was right: Brick Loot has become a massive hit in the LEGO world ever since it began, with its young founder still personally testing out many of the items included in the boxes.

Every Brick Loot shipment contains LEGO and LEGO-compatible building kits, including ones created by popular LEGOdesigners. Shipments also come with brick accessories, a mini-figure, an LED brick light, and a selection of LEGO goodies like baseball hats, candy molds, and pencil cases. The range of items and variety here—bricks, mini-figures, accessories, and swag—makes this a perfect choice for kids who love everything LEGO.

A 12-month subscription costs about $25 per month while paying monthly runs around $28 per month. Three- and six-month subscriptions are also available. Whatever plan you choose, shipping is always around $6.

No, unless you sign up for 12-month plan

Why We Chose It

Whether you want a small build or a larger one, this subscription comes with fun, themed boxes complete with a building set, a mini-figure, and a few surprise items each month.

Pros
  • Can sign up for Brickbox or Brickbox mini

  • Can save if you sign up for three or 12 months

  • Shipping is free on the 12-month plan or 40% with three-month commitment

  • Contains a minifigure, buildable sets, and surprises

Cons
  • Shipping isn’t free unless you pay for 12 months up front

  • Only for kids ages 6 and up

If your child isn’t quite ready for all the bells and whistles of a bigger subscription box like Brick Loot, Brickbox may be a better fit. That's because, in addition to a standard-themed subscription box, there is also a smaller "mini" option. Either one might be less overwhelming for a kid just starting out with LEGO or a family that’s trying to keep things a bit more minimal without numerous pieces strewn throughout the house.

The standard Brickbox subscription comes with one or two building sets and mini-figures, plus a handful of other cool accessories like stickers and collector's items. Past boxes have been Ninjago and castle-themed, just to give a few examples. The mini option, however, comes with a mini-figure, unnamed “surprise items,” and a smaller building set, keeping things light and simple.

Although the mini option may be more accessible for younger kids, it’s worth noting that the standard box subscription is probably a better value, since you’re sure to get at least one mini-figure and up to two building sets for around $37 per month. The quality of the items in the mini box is not as reliable and it costs around $27 per month. Shipping ranges from $3 to $5 depending on your subscription plan, but it's free with a 12-month subscription.

Best for Minifigures : The Minifig Club

Why We Chose It

Not everyone likes LEGO for the builds, so if you’re a minifigure collector, this is the subscription you want. It will send you several minifigures, plus a number of accessories.

Pros
  • Send you a selection of minifigures every month

  • Great for collectors who prefer the characters over the builds

  • Comes with a surprise “piece-of-the-month” accessory

  • Includes free shipping

  • Affordably priced

Cons
  • No builds included

One of the best parts of any LEGO set is the mini-figures that come with it—little figurines that pack a ton of personality and character into their tiny packages, plus they’re super fun to mix and match. If your kids are so obsessed with mini-figures that you find them everywhere in your home—from your bathtub to your vegetable garden—this is the perfect box for them.

The Minifig Club understands this appeal, and, foregoing the building sets that typically define LEGO boxes, it sends LEGO lovers a selection of mini-figures every month to add to their existing collection. With each monthly box, you get enough parts—from heads and torsos to arms and legs—to make three mini-figures. You'll also receive 10 different mini-figure accessories like hats, hair, guitars, coffee mugs, and more. Additionally, you'll receive a special “piece of the month” that’s especially cool, like a superhero cape, stickers, magnets, storytime, or photography challenge cards.

Plans start at around $11 per month for a 12-month subscription. Monthly subscriptions are around $13 per month, and neither plan charges for shipping within the U.S.

Best LEGO Rental : Netbricks

Why We Chose It

LEGO’s giant $800 build sets are a challenge—but they also take up a ton of space. This rental subscription allows you to build some of those expensive sets you’ve been eyeing in the LEGO store without having to figure out where you’ll store it once it’s built.

Pros
  • Can rent sets worth up to $800

  • Multiple plans available to suit your needs

  • More cost-effective than buying the deluxe sets

  • Forgiveness if you lose some pieces

Cons
  • Plans that allow you to rent more than one set have two-month commitments

  • Shipping not included for more affordable subscriptions

Renting a set of LEGO bricks might sound like a nightmare due to the likelihood of losing a ton of pieces, but hear us out: The people at Netbricks know that losing pieces is a fact of life, and they’ve factored in some forgiveness for missing bricks. You can lose anywhere from 10 to 20 pieces per set without being charged any additional fees. You can rent LEGO sets at your leisure, building and rebuilding to your heart’s content before sending the set back in exchange for a completely brand new one.

You choose a plan, which allows you to borrow any LEGO set within a certain price range. For example, the Unlimited and One-time rental options let you choose any set with a retail value of up to $100. If you’re interested in more pricey sets, like a Star Wars Ewok village or Harry Potter castle, those are available with a Pro membership plan.

There are several plan options and the pricing varies, but the unlimited plan starts at about $29 per month and lets you borrow as many LEGO sets as you can build and send back in 30 days. A one-time rental is only around $24 per month. Pro memberships are closer to $39 per month, with shipments restricted to every 30 or 60 days, but you have the flexibility to borrow larger, more complex sets. Shipping is a little pricey at about $15, but keep in mind that assembling these monthly deliveries is labor-intensive.

What to Look for in a Lego subscription

There are a few things to consider when shopping for a LEGO subscription, including:

  • Price: LEGO subscriptions can vary pretty wildly in price, from as low as around $13 to well over $79 a month.
  • Is it actually LEGO? Some subscriptions will only ship you actual LEGO toys, while others will include compatible brands too. If you’re a LEGO purist, you might want to stick with the subscriptions that only send you official LEGO toys. 
  • Minifigures or builds: If you love LEGO for the challenge of putting something together, look for a set that sends you actual builds; but if you’re a minifigure collector, you can save some money and skip all the bricks. 
  • Rental or purchase: Does the subscription allow you to keep your LEGO, or do you have to return it? Generally, subscriptions that are more affordable let you keep your LEGO, but you won’t get a giant build. Rentals might ship you some of the biggest sets, but you’ll need to send them back.

FAQs

Are LEGO Subscriptions Worth It?

If you or your child love building LEGOs, but find the pricey at the store, a subscription might be a good choice. You can save real money with a subscription at one of these companies—especially if you opt for a rental service, like Netbricks, where you can receive an $800 set for around $79 a month, build it, then take it back apart, and send it back. It’s a pretty cost-effective option if you’re a quick builder. Subscriptions might also work well for you if you like being surprised each month.

What Is a LEGO Subscription Box?

A LEGO subscription box is a service that regularly sendsLEGO building sets and other merchandise directly to your front door (usually once a month). The boxes are perfect for LEGO collectors and enthusiasts, young and old, who can’t get enough of these classic building bricks. In most cases, the products are yours to keep, while others let you rent a LEGO set and send it back when you’re ready for another one.

What’s Included in a LEGO Subscription Box?

Boxes may include LEGO building sets, brightly-colored bricks, mini-figures, and/or other LEGO goodies. LEGO accessories and memorabilia can be anything from stickers and pencil cases to candy molds and collector’s items. In some cases, the boxes include building sets that are exclusively for subscription plan members and other LEGO products that can’t be found in stores.

Depending on the type of plan you select, you may also get advanced tips, build challenges, booklets, fun contests, and/or some extra surprises such as a vintage piece. Some subscription boxes cater to specific age groups or interests, like one that’s geared for kids ages 4 to 12 years old or another that exclusively sends LEGO mini-figures and accessories.

How Much Do LEGO Subscription Boxes Cost?

The cost of LEGO subscription boxes varies depending on what’s included. However, these services typically start in the range of $25 to $38 per month and can go up to more than $130 per month for top-tier, advanced plans. Most companies offer discounts if you choose a longer subscription plan. In some cases, shipping may be included, while other companies charge an additional fee for delivery.
