Age yourself with your first LEGO set!

Do you remember your first LEGO set? We asked that question to the members of our BrickResales community, and the results were pretty crazy. Read through to see whether anyone shares your first LEGO set, and let us know if yours isn’t there?

113 – Meg: “Loved building this house.”

263 – Helen: “Feeling old.”

312 – Ross

372 – Charlotte: “And I still have it. I built it for my kids a little while ago!”

379 – Carolyn: “Still love it, still play with it.”

537-2 – Nicky: “This was mine back in the 80s and I still have it and the instructions.”

890 – Charlotte: “Still have this one too. I must have stolen my brother's LEGO because it was his. Lol.”

924 – Julian: “The oldest set I have, which is in pieces and missing a few bits, is 924 from 1979, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have had it when it first came out I was only a few years old. I had a few other Space sets but it was the Castle series around 1984 which really captured my imagination. Still have them all these years later a little worse for wear and missing a few small pieces.”

6080 – Clay and Adam: “There was a few pieces missing from this that the BrickResales crew helped me source so I could complete the kit. Still a couple of random bits I need but I'll get them eventually.”

7730 (?) – Daniel: Old school trains with an epic track layout. My mother gave them away years ago so now I have the new trains with an even bigger track layout.”

Set number N/A – Suzan: “Not sure of the number. It was a little house with red roof and a picket fence, with the old-style figures with the round head. Won it in a colouring competition run by the local BP service station many moons ago.”

Set number N/A – Bettina: “Box of bricks with a window and a door. Oh, and some roof tiles!”
