Have a load of old LEGO bricks lying around your house? Ever wondered what you can do with them in an attempt to declutter your home? Well, we have the answer! Read on to find out all the things you can do with your old LEGO.
Donate to Charity
Charities and charity shops are always looking for donations, especially for children’s toys. Give back by donating your old LEGO to your local charity shops and causes to give your LEGO a new lease of life. Find your local charity shop here and put a smile on someone else’s face with your old LEGO.
Give to a Local School
Why not get in touch with your local school and see if they would appreciate a donation of your old LEGO blocks. LEGO isn’t just a toy, it’s thought of as a great way of aiding a child’s development and improving their problem-solving skills, as well as encouraging creativity. Your local school children will get hours of fun out of your old LEGO kits, which would otherwise be sat gathering dust in your spare room!
Hand it Down
Have some younger family members, friends or friend’s kids in your social circle? Why not hand down your old LEGO to them and watch them experience the joy it once brought you. Surely there’s no greater gift than giving?
As much as we want to protect our planet and recycle when we can, it’s very important NOT to take your old LEGO to your local recycling point with your other plastics. LEGO is currently not recyclable and will end up sitting in landfill if you try and recycle it or throw it in the bin. That’s why it is so important to find alternative uses for your old LEGO and to extend its life by giving it to someone else.
Sell it On
LEGO is always in high demand, especially popular, rare or sold out kits. If you still have the original packaging you could be able to make some serious cash by selling on your LEGO to collectors. Have a look at second-hand sites such as eBay or Facebook Marketplace.
Sell your LEGO to Zapper
By selling your old LEGO to Zapper, you will receive a guaranteed cash payment. Simply let us know the weight of your LEGO blocks you want to sell and we can give you an instant valuation.
