Age Rating on LEGO?

Ask a Question

Can anyone explain to me how they come up with the age rating on lego I'm struggling with an iron man for a 6 year old and my age is 7 times that

I'll send LEGO a message for you asking them to change the age recommendations on their packaging from 'Age 6 Plus' to 'Age 12 Minus'!

Like technology, when you're defeated, ask the kids.

I couldn't tell you myself to be honest but the Duplo is for younger children which you can tell by the size. The other ones do go through tests there was a programme on it. I'd say Google how they come up with the he for Lego .

Some are harder than others, I think kids have nimble fingers, my son who's 23 found the TIE fighter helmet hard as all the pieces were one colour black.

But it was Adult Lego 😀

I think Lego are trying to cover all ages now, most probably you were just out of practice in building lego

My son when he was younger wouldn't let me help him make his LEGO, so rather than argue. On Christmas Day I used to take a very long bath with a glass of wine and a book while his Dad suffered from LEGO thumb 😂I felt really left out NOT@Imnotcheap

Imnotcheap sounds like my house. I get my 9 year old to do all that stuff. I've got no patience for that anymore. Especially with my hyperactive 3 year old. Building Lego stresses me out now. Its too technical now. I liked it when you could build whatever.

Tbf i think it all depends on the child/person. My boys both love lego but my eldest couldn’t do a set alone until he was around 7.. whereas my 3 year old now can pretty much complete one alone for age 5+

I feel that the imagination has been done for the kids these days with Lego. What happened to a big bag of mixed bricks. And go build what you want how you want. They want it as the picture is am like aaargh use your imagination. They look at you as if to say what's that mum.

Lego do have an 18+ range. I've just discovered that now includes a new plant range - Bonsai Tree and Flower Bouquet.
