Shopping for your next exciting build? Or just a great gift for someone special? A LEGO set is so much more than some plastic bricks and an instruction manual: they’re memories waiting to be made. These toys offer the joy of play, the act of artistic creation, and the thrill of making something with someone you love.

There’s nothing like building a good LEGO set, that satisfying snap of two pieces clicking into place—and, eventually, the whole thing coming together. And if you can use it as an excuse to spend some quality time with your child or a friend, even better.

Here are some of the best LEGO sets you can get online right now.

Editor's Note

This one catches the eye immediately. The iconic Fender Stratocaster is often the first image people conjure when they hear the word “guitar,” and the cherry red color choice here makes it a great display piece for your home office, bookshelf, or living room. With 1,074 pieces, it’s certainly not a tiny, quick set to put together—and the old-school Princeton Reverb tube amp really completes it. The folks at LEGO really outdid themselves with this one.

Pros

  • 1,074 pieces

Cons

  • None that we could find

LEGO Star Wars Boba Fett’s Starship 75312

No Star Wars collection or entertainment center is complete without Boba Fett’s Firespray-class gunship. This is a quick, fun build that I enjoyed putting together with my son recently. It goes great with the Disney Gallery making-of series on Disney+ or a rewatch of The Mandalorian or Book of Boba Fett. And it’s only 593 pieces, so it should be pretty accessible for younger builders (LEGO rates it for ages nine and up). The Mando and Boba minifigs are great, too.

Pros

  • 593 pieces

Cons

  • None that we could find

Another iconic, instantly familiar design from the 20th century is brought to life in stunning LEGO form. The perfect gift idea for the gamer in your life, or decoration for your gaming area, this Nintendo Entertainment System set—with accompanying TV set and Super Mario Bros. imagery—is a marvel to behold, as well as a great conversation piece. If you love building LEGOs as much as you love playing your Nintendo Switch, this NES replica seems like a no-brainer. It’s a little pricey, but that’s to be expected for a set with 2,646 pieces.

Pros

  • 2,646 pieces

Cons

LEGO and Star Wars have enjoyed a lovely marriage since 1999, when the very first X-wing starfighter model arrived in the lead-up to The Phantom Menace. Today, the Star Wars sets are better than ever, and this highly detailed, 2,314-piece R2-D2 is at the top of my wish list. From 1977 to The Rise of Skywalker, Artoo’s been brought to life by the likes of Ralph McQuarrie, John Stears, Kenny Baker, Lee Towersey, Jimmy Vee, and sound designer Ben Burtt. Now, you can share a small part of that history with a droid of your very own. What a perfect LEGO set.

Pros

  • 2,314 pieces

If your interest in space exploration favors the real world over the galaxy far, far away, the NASA Space Shuttle Discovery will scratch that itch. Inspired by the historic 1990 mission, Discovery is accompanied by a model of the Hubble space telescope. If you grew up looking at photographs from the Space Shuttle Program in awe, this beautiful, 2,354-piece tribute is sure to fulfill you with a long, meditative build session (or several). A perfect gift for the stargazer on your crew.

Pros

  • 2,354 pieces
