The new LEGO store will offer a wide selection of the latest LEGO sets, as well as ‘play experiences’, activities and events available exclusively in-store.

LEGO’s famous ‘Pick & Build Wall’ will be installed in the Edinburgh store where customers can grab a cup and fill it up with their choice of LEGO bricks and elements.

There will also be a ‘Build a Minifigure Tower’ in the Capital which will allow customers to mix and match LEGO pieces to create their own bespoke minifigure creation.

Customers will be able to shop exclusive LEGO products in store which are only available from LEGO stores or on their official website.

Exclusive products include LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley and the LEGO Colosseum.

Alison Wood, LEGO Stores UK, Benelux & Scandinavia District Senior Manager said: “We are so excited to bring a whole new play experience to all budding builders in Edinburgh. Whether you’re 1 or 100, there is something for you to get excited about – including the latest LEGO brick products and a range of exciting in-store play activities.”
