You don’t often get anything for free but so far, this magazine seems to be & it goes down very well with my 5 & 9 year old. With all the excitement around the new Lego Batman movie too, Lego is in big demand in the Mummyshire house!
Also my children don’t really receive post; not unless you include the Amazon boxes which I’ve ordered. So getting a delivery every 6 – 8 weeks is a real novelty which they love.
This is what Lego City promises, and so far it’s lived up to it:
“The LEGO Club is an entirely FREE-to-join club for LEGO fans ages 5-9 years. When your child wishes to join LEGO Club, you can allow them to subscribe to the free LEGO Club Magazine and access the safe & secure LEGO Club website. You can also receive the LEGO Club email newsletter, with the most up to date LEGO news and features.”

It was really easy to sign up and so far I’ve received no junk mail, no unwarranted emails or text messages…Lego is keeping up its claim not to add me or the children to any further mailing lists. It’s refreshing when that happens!
So why sign up to Lego Club Magazine?
Exciting post. It’s a bit of physical post that’s addressed to the children, so finding it on the doormat is always exciting
New reading content. It has stories of familiar minifigure characters, but it’s new content something we haven’t seen before.
For boys & girls. Although you have to state if your child’s gender when you sign up, each magazine are have a little bit of everything. So Lego Friends is found in both magazines along with Batman. I do like this non-gender specific approach
Quizzes & posters. There are pull outs & activities to do in the magazine. Great for pincer/pen holding practise.
Quality time. Whilst Mademoiselle reads to herself, I read the magazine to Little Mister. I still think there’s something special about sitting deep into the sofa and taking time out to slow things down & enjoy reading together.
Lego City Online. By signing up to the magazine the kids can access games, downloads and news online (via LegoLife App). This has come in really handy on long car journeys!
It’s Free. Yup, so far I haven’t found a catch
The only downside is that Lego says it stops at the age of 9 years old. I think this is a real shame as I know my Mademoiselle enjoys the creativity and construction of Lego and still enjoys the magazine.
However, she is still getting her copy despite turning 9yo last year. I hope it doesn’t end soon.
Disclosure: I’m sharing this because my children enjoy the magazine and any opportunity I can get them to read – and enjoy it – I’ll take!
I'm Tracey, nice to meet you. Mummyshire was 'born' three years ago after we moved from London to the Oxford countryside. Here I chart our journey adjusting to our new lives, the challenges of being in the countryside & surviving parenthood.
