You might think you've outgrown LEGO, but with some of the unique and seriously cool sets out right now geared toward adults, you'll want to reconsider. Not only has the iconic brand created some options that you'll actually want to put on display in your home, but Target also has some exclusive selections that you can't find at other big retailers.
There's something so therapeutic about snapping the pieces together, and with the level of detail in some of these bigger options, you'll have thousands of pieces that will make for multiple hours of calm fun. The botanical line is elegant and would make a great gift, while the big world map is ideal for someone who loves to travel. There are also some picks for fans of franchises like Star Wars and Marvel, and others that are super nostalgia-filled.
We've found some of our favorite and most unique sets from LEGO. Add them to your Target cart right now for a gift, or treat yourself!
Icons Wildflower Bouquet
Channel summer all year long with this bright wildflower set that won't shrivel up after a week. Each box contains pieces to make eight different flowers (you'll get enough to create two of each kind), like Gerbera daisies, lupins, and lavender. You can put these in your favorite vase, or build the stems to a shorter length to make a centerpiece.
Disney Villain Icons
Created for Disney's 100th anniversary, this Target exclusive is a creative way of showing off your love of the villains in a more adult way. It does have four minifigs, but the spotlight is on Captain Hook's watch, the Evil Queen's poison apple, and books and video tapes from the classic films.
Icons Dried Flower Centerpiece
Instead of buying a centerpiece for your Thanksgiving dinner, create your own in these pretty harvest colors that can be reused for years to come. It can also be constructed as two separate floral pieces if you want to share with a friend.
Icons Bird of Paradise
A Target exclusive, this plant is one you'll never have to worry about watering. It's got 1,172 pieces and features some unique ones that give the leaves their distinct shape.
Marvel Avengers Thor Hammer
You can build and wield Mjölnir, so long as you are worthy. The hammer is a Target exclusive and is meant to be displayed. It comes with a Thor minifig and also tiny versions of the Infinity Gauntlet, Tesseract, and Odin's Fire that can be stored inside a secret compartment.
Art The Great Wave
Recreate Hokusai's masterpieces in LEGO form. This set comes with all you'll need to hang it on the wall, and there's even a QR code to listen to a relaxing playlist while you work.
Icons Vespa Model Set
Part of the LEGO Icons collection, which features challenging models of landmarks and vehicles, this adorable Vespa looks just like the real thing. Created to celebrate the scooter brand's 75th anniversary, it even has little flowers and an Italian license plate.
Icons Bonsai Tree
All of the botanicals in the Icons collection are beautiful, but this one can change with the seasons. This Bonsai comes with leafy greenery and colorful cherry blossoms that you can swap out.
Ideas The Starry Night Art Set
Bring to life the famous Vincent Van Gogh painting with this 3D set. There's also a minifig of the artist who is hard at work, and the piece can be hung on the wall once completed.
Art World Map
This map is impressively large and has a watery background you can customize. With 11,695 pieces, it measures close to three and a half feet wide when finished. It comes with hanging elements, and there are even brick pins so you can mark your favorite places.
The Sanderson Sisters' Cottage
Yes, Hocus Pocus is technically a Halloween movie, but true fans will happy to get this set gifted at any time of the year. The witches' cottage has cool elements like the fire under the cauldron and the water wheel that turns to make pink "smoke." The roof opens so you can see just how detailed the interior is as well.
'Star Wars' R2-D2 Droid Building Set
This one-foot-tall R2-D2 may not make the beep boop noises, but otherwise, he's a pretty accurate model of the famous robot. The head rotates and the front has a hatch with an adjustable periscope (there's even a hidden lightsaber!). If you are looking for a bigger challenge than this 2,314-piece set, there's the massive Milennium Falcon. It's pricey but features 7,541 pieces and incredible detail.
Ideas Motorized Lighthouse
If you've got a beach house (or just like assembling scale models), this lighthouse is a cool challenge. The nearly two-foot-tall structure has a rocky cliff, a hidden cave, and a motorized light that rotates as well as a glowing fireplace.
The budding author on your shopping list will love this vintage typewriter with moving keys and elements that make it feel like the real thing. It is just over 2,000 pieces and even has a roller bar where real paper can be inserted for display.
This newly-released Lord of the Rings set is simply stunning. The Elvish home has been rendered with so many tiny details, from the tiles on the roof to the statues on the building to the leaves on the trees. This also comes with 15 minifigs so you can recreate the full council of Elrond.
Icons Atari 2600 Video Game Console
There's huge nostalgia for this classic arcade system from the '80s, which comes with a joystick that actually moves. Build cartridges for the games Asteroids, Adventure, and Centipede, and three 3D scenes from each.
