Think Legos are just for kids?

  • Think Legos are just for kids?

    If you think Legos are just toys for kids, think again. Parents have been purchasing Legos for their kids since their release in the U.S. in 1961. In the years following, the Lego brand has developed into a highly-popular and valuable collectible for kids and adults.   Legos also bring some hefty price tags as well. For example, the “Harry Potter and the Legend of the Order of the Phoenix Castle Set (Lego #5378) sold in 2007 for $89.99. It has since been retired and prices now range from $225 to $560. That’s a pretty astounding increase in value if you think about it!

    The demand for Legos is increasing at an all-time high. Naturally, the more rare and added desirability as with anything, the higher the value.

    If you have any doubts about desirability of Legos, check out an online price and investment website for LEGO collectors called “Brick Pickers”. There is also a wonderful resource book titled “The Ultimate Guide to Collectible LEGO Sets”. It features the most collectible Legos on the secondary market as well as pricing, and a ton of great information. Here’s some food for thought: Lego is now the world’s largest toy company!
