There's no denying that Lego is a popular toy and/or collector's item, but there's an issue which we can't block out - Lego can be expensive. So hopefully this deal will help you out.
If you're between six and 14 (sorry grown-ups, this one isn't for you - but you will have to stay with your kids when you take them), go into your nearest official Lego store (there's more info on where below) on the first Thursday of every month between 4-6pm to take part in the Lego Mini Build.
Get there as soon as you can, as stock is limited to 200-300 models per store (depending on size and location), and it's first come, first served. Staff will show your kids how to make the model, which Lego told us is worth around £5 (but it's not for sale). Once it's been made - it should take about 10-15 mins - the kids can then take it home for free.
The models are different each month, and you normally don't know what you're going to get until you get there.
Participating stores include: Bluewater, Brighton, Cardiff, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester Arndale, Milton Keynes, Newcastle, Sheffield Meadowhall, Watford and both London Westfield centres.

FREE Lego to build and take home
In store at Smyths. Sat 5 May only
If you're planning to visit a Smyths store (find your nearest) this weekend, from 10am to 4pm on Sat 5 May you could build and take home a free mini Lego sports car (model no 30349), which would normally cost about £5ish in shops.
While Smyths told us the sports car will be found at all 80+ stores, while stocks last, some stores may also offer other Lego freebies. Past giveaways included a Lego police car or helicopter.
Although we think this is probably aimed primarily at children and their parents, the Smyths website says 'calling ALL Lego builders' which implies anyone is welcome to join in.
Get an extra £5ish freebie if you live near a Lego Store
As similar monthly toy builds at the Lego Store are so popular, (the next one is Thu 3 May, see Lego Store info for details), it's best to arrive early to both if you live nearby to maximise your chances of grabbing a spot. It's completely free to join in, so Lego of your wallet...
Can you find 30% off Lego in Toys R Us?
While stock lasts at 75 remaining stores. 25 closed already
If you go in store to Toys R Us (find your nearest), there's 30% off all Lego in its closing down sale. However, only 75 stores remain open - full list in 'more info' below - and we don't know how much stock will be left, or when they'll close. So this is a 'can you find it' rather than guaranteed.
While the Toys R Us website is no longer transactional (ie, you can only buy in stores), you can still use the site to browse the full range of Lego. Just don't assume you'll find all the items in store as what's available will depend on what's left on the shelves when you visit.
The prices online don't have the discount applied, though it should be displayed on in-store signage (see images below). For a rough idea, here are a few examples we spotted online on Tue 10 Apr:
Lego Minecraft zombie cave - £13.99 (£19.99 before 30% off). Next cheapest, £19.99 at John Lewis
Lego Marvel Super Heroes set - £20.99 (£29.99 before 30% off). Next cheapest, £23.99 at Amazon
Lego Batman Batmobile - £34.99 (£49.99 before 30% off). Next cheapest, £54.99 at Amazon
Lego Star Wars X-Wing - £55.99 (£79.99 before 30% off). Next cheapest, £60 at Tesco eBay outlet
Lego Disney Princess castle - £48.99 (£69.99 before 30% off). Next cheapest, £54.99 at Smyths
We've heard mixed reports from MoneySavers, with some finding full shelves and others telling us all the Lego in their store is gone. So remember, there are no guarantees, and in any case, even with the 30% off, Toys R Us may not always be cheapest - so check prices elsewhere.
For more info, including your rights, see our Toys R Us in administration news story.
