While there are loads of Black Friday Lego deals floating around the internet, with more sure to pop up closer to the actual Black Friday day on November 27, a winner has already started to emerge in the form of Smyths. (Not in the UK? Scroll down for the best Lego deals in your region)
The majority of the Black Friday deals we’ve been seeing constitute either 15% or 20% off – Lego sets rarely get discounts higher than that, with Black Friday bringing a wider range of discounts rather than bigger price cuts. That’s even if sets see a real discount at all, with some kits having mere pounds knocked off. Since it’s such a premium product, Lego rarely sees huge savings.
However Smyths’ is bucking that trend, with bigger percentage reductions on the sets in its Black Friday Lego deals range. Some of the sets sold there have up to 30% off, which is a lot in the Lego discount world. And while lots of these discounts are actually matched by other retailers, some may prefer buying from smaller stores like Smyths over Amazon.
You can find the full list of Smyths Lego deals here, but we’ve actually chosen the best and we’ll list them below. Just note, not all of the sets are available for online delivery – some require click-and-collect from a store near you.
