We've compared prices on the most popular LEGO products on Amazon Australia with Australian retailers like Kmart and Big W.
Buildable toys like LEGO have been a cornerstone of family celebrations for decades. Christmas, birthdays and just about any family holiday can be brightened with some teamwork and a pile of plastic bricks. However, as everyone knows. the popular block-building toys don't come cheap (got to pay for those big Disney licenses somehow).
With the launch of Amazon in Australia, our sights were set firmly on the deluge of LEGO kits coming this year to align with the release of Star Wars VIII: The Last Jedi. Below we've compared some of the most popular LEGO kits on Amazon side-by-side with Australian retailers to see who comes out on top.
