Have you ever wanted to immerse yourself in a magazine choc-full of cool LEGO stuff? Well guess what? You can! If you are an avid LEGO-fan you have probably heard of the LEGO Club before. With over 4 million members all around the globe, the LEGO Club is one of the biggest and most popular children’s member clubs in the world.
The LEGO Club’s official mission-statement is “to entertain, connect and above all else to inspire the builders of tomorrow by helping them develop their creativity and imagination”. The LEGO Club is free to join for LEGO-fans of all ages (yep, that means adults too!). 🙂
When you join the LEGO Club, you can subscribe to the LEGO Club Magazine, and you also get access to the LEGO Club website, which is mostly geared towards kids, but it is fun to check out for adults as well.
Back to the LEGO Club Magazine, it is free in most countries. It is mailed to your home six times a year in the USA (January, March, May, July, September, and November). In Canada, the magazine will be mailed to your home five times a year (January, April, July, September, and November). In Australia and New Zealand membership isn’t free and they only get the magazine four times a year. (So sorry for our friends down under!) If you don’t want the magazine mailed to you, you can also read the USA and Canadian versions online.
The LEGO Club Magazine has two versions. First, there is LEGO Club Jr. for ages 6 and under. It is an easy-to-read and fully-illustrated magazine full of fun stories, challenges, comic adventures, puzzles, and activities designed to inspire, entertain and stimulate young children’s creativity. It is a bit too simple for older kids and adults, so I wouldn’t recommend subscribing if you are over the recommended age. But for younger kids it’s fun!
The regular version of the LEGO Club Magazine is for ages 7 and up, packs every issue full of LEGO news and behind-the-bricks interviews, comic adventures, games and puzzles, building-challenges and contests, cool creations built by LEGO fans, as well as sneak-peeks at the latest LEGO sets and LEGO themes.
One section of the LEGO Club Magazine that I really enjoy is Cool Creations. In every issue the magazine features 10 or so creations made by young LEGO fans. I really enjoy looking at this part because it shows things that other LEGO-maniacs have made. And the best part about the Cool Creations section is that you might get your very own LEGO creation featured if you mail in pictures and information to the magazine! You can also see many more LEGO creations online at the Cool Creation section of the LEGO Club website.
Another part of the magazine that I have fun with is the comics. In every issue there is a new comic about LEGO Star Wars. They can be really funny. Sometimes the magazine also features other comics from different LEGO themes, but you can always look forward to at least a LEGO Star Wars comic.
A lot of times the LEGO Club Magazine will include contests. Most of the time they are building contests where you have to build some new vehicle or something for a certain theme, at other times it will be drawing contests, or just have to answer some questions. The great thing about the contests is the prizes! Sometimes LEGO will give away LEGO Gift Cards, LEGO sets or LEGO video-games. I remember one time when one of the prizes included a new Xbox 360! 🙄
And there are many other features of the LEGO Club Magazine I haven’t gone into, but the point is that magazine is really fun, and you can spend quite a bit of enjoyable time flipping through it. I would highly recommend it to older kids, teens and even adults. If you would like to sign up you can go to the LEGO Club Magazine Subscription page.
If you already subscribed to the LEGO Club Magazine feel free to share how you like it and which is your favorite section! And if you haven’t subscribed yet and you have some questions don’t be shy to ask! 😉
Also, I’m a TFOL (Teen-Fan-of-LEGO) and this is my second article here. I hope you enjoyed it! If you like, you can check out my previous post, LEGO Minifigures are More Than Little People. Feedback is welcome!
And if you like LEGO and reading, you might want to head over to the LEGO Books section, or select from some of the highlighted posts:
Yeah, the Club Magazine is awesome! 😉 I think I’ve been gitting it for probably about 5 or 6 years now 😀

great post 😉
Thanks! This is my second article for thBrickBlogger. I did get a lot of help Admin tho, She helped quite a bit by writing a lot of filler for the article. 🙂
help *from* Admin * haha
Articles like yours are always welcome. More people write the better, as people are expert at different things and it is not possible for me to cover everything myself. As you write more you get more experience and you get better at it. 😉
When I write I keep two things in mind; one is to serve the community. Give LEGO fans some helpful information. Something they may not have heard of before. And the other is to try to write articles in such a way that it is enjoyable for both those who are brand new to the topic, and those who know something about it already. The rest is easy. 🙂
Yeah! I have subscribed to and close to the best part is if you don’t get an issue, you can ask them to send it to you!
Thanks for mentioning that here, I believe that was left out of the article. 🙂
I didn’t know that. . . It’s too bad becaues I think I missed one or two issues. . . 🙁 But It’s nice to know for the future! 😉
It’s a great magizine!
( I stink at spelling!)
haha! Yah it is a lot of fun.
Can it be shipped to South Africa?
I dont see that anywhere on the subscription page. So as of now I’d say no. I could be wrong tho….. 🙂
What are you talking about?
That is completely unrelated… I suspect an account suspension? Anyways, I used to have brickmaster, (until it was discontinued) and I LOVED it! 😉
Its a spammer that somehow sneaked through. Funny that we were just talking about them yesterday! 😀
Yah my bro used to get Brickmaster for about a year. It seemed pretty cool, maybe a bit overpriced but cool nonetheless. 🙂
Spammers talking about anti piracy, seems strange. 😛 🙂
Yeah, that’s how you can tell spammers; they are talking a bunch of jibberish about a completely unrelated topic. 🙄

Adresse: maadi chatr 7 floor 6 appartment 63.
I think you will have to contact LEGO about that. 😉
My grandson would like to send a letter to Lego club and needs an address . Three of us have been trying to find it do they not want mail ? From and 8 year old who loves Legos and has been to Florida’s and Chicago and two others .thank you never mind.
Langford, the address for the LEGO Club Magazine, is right at the back of each issue: LEGO CLUB, P.O. Box 1157, Enfield, CT 06083-1157
I signed my son up for the Lego magazine 2 months ago and have never received one yet. I checked his profile and it’s filled out correctly, how long does it take to get it?
Brandi, my guess is that your subscription was received right in between two issues. The magazine comes out every two months. The last one was March/April. You could call LEGO’s customer service and they can check for you to make sure everything is fine with the subscription. But my guess is that your son should be receiving the May/June issue when it becomes available.
