If you would write a letter to LEGO, what would you say? Would it be a letter of appreciation about a new LEGO set you are particularly impressed with? Or a concern or complaint about something you don’t like? Or perhaps an idea you want to share with LEGO designers, hoping they will implement it? 🙂
LEGO actually does receive lots of letters from fans. And LEGO is very good at responding to them too as we have seen in this story: LEGO Makes a Fan’s Wish Come True. Below are a few fun letters that kids wrote to LEGO…
I have written a letter to LEGO myself when a few years back I got really concerned about the declining quality of LEGO elements. At that time some LEGO bricks developed cracks as soon as you attached them the first time – right out of the box. I got a nice letter back that they are looking into the issue. Looks like they did as my more recent LEGO sets are okay! 😀
What about you? Have you ever written a letter to LEGO? What did you write about? Did you get a response back? Or if you haven’t written to LEGO before what would you write? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below. If you like, you can start out by “Dear LEGO…” 😉

First comment! Anyway, these is a lovely post! I like the lord of the rings letter, it kept me smiling for the rest of the day!
Well I can honestly ssay that I have not written any letters to LEGO.
On a different note… The UK Toy Fair was held and there were lots of new sets unveiled… For us old Castle Fans here’s some info… http://brickset.com/news/article/?ID=5562 … Looks like we’re NOT getting a Dwarve’s Mine.
At the bottom of the article there are links to more set descriptions for 2013.
Unfortunately photography was not allowed
Micho, yeah, I’m planning to write about the summers sets tomorrow. I have been out of town so I’m just catching up on all the awesome new myself. 🙂
Nice… can’t wait for the article… gonna hit a LEGO store tomorrow in PHX, some CMFs are on my list… going for 5 mermaids, 5 knights, 3 Cyclops, 3 maid Marions, 2 chicken suit guys and 2 actresses
wanna make some bets?
My friends and I always bet on what we will get when we buy from the minifig series
Lucky you! Still nothing in my area. Interestingly, a lot of people say they can’t find the current series anywhere – not even LEGO store, only the online LEGO shop. Unfortunately there is no way to choose those though. 🙁
I can’t find ANYTHING ANYWHERE….i guess all the stores are tired of not selling as many as they want…
toys are us?
I see what you mean about the bricks. My MMV had some bad blue ones and it was probably made a few years back.
Admin why are you in the corner of one of.the letters? Did the person who wrote it just put the Demolition Dummy in their?
LOL! Yeah, that’s just the generic demolition dummy, not me. 😉
i already sent a letter last year complaining about the price of LEGO.
the results: shattering
the chance of me trying again: 3%
they just won’t listen!
I just read an interesting article about the price of LEGO. According to the author prices have in fact been coming down through the years if you consider inflation and all. The author has done extensive research, provides charts, etc. Very interesting. You can read it here: http://therealityprose.wordpress.com/2013/01/17/what_happened_with_lego/
WOW!!! What a well-researched article… just wow!!!
Yeah, that’s what I thought too! 😀
Ninjoey,I must agree with you on that issue. I’m not paying $20 dollars for a small LEGO City set. Besides,most of them are just firemen,miners,and police. I’m planning on making a real lego city. I can’t seem to find any Lego sets like. I may send a letter on this topic. Lego has to do something about this. If they don’t do anything about this soon I might go into my dark ages. 🙁
The modulars look good, but they are expensive.
Complaint about the price, well, yeah, I’d complain, too, but what could they respond?
Most of my issues are the same things I always rant about (collectible minifigures being unevenly distributed (especially now with a rumored “1 per box figure”), making comic-con/ toy fair exclusive figures with no intention of releasing them to the public despite not making any sense from a consumer or profit making standpoint for LEGO, re-releasing an AT-TE and a Republic dropship for a third time without any obvious signs of ever releasing any of the arena creatures from SW Ep.II, etc). Unfortunately, I think I take most of the stuff LEGO does right for granted.
The only time I’ve ever written lego was when I couldn’t find a sticker set in my Emerald Night Train set. The service guys were awesome; they apologized and shipped me the stickers. No questions or anything. So no complaints here.
Is there an email you can use to contact LEGO? I’m not planning to do it, but I’m just wondering.
Indeed there is, the “contact us” link on lego.com leads to:
I haven’t really sat down and written a letter to LEGO, but I have on several occasions submitted a request for missing parts. Replacement parts arrive shortly thereafter.
One thing I might write to them to complain about is COLOR consistency.
In a recent set, even some black pieces were clearly different, though it looked more like a mold issue. some parts were super shiny, others looked like the mold was in dire need of maintenance. (oh, now I recall: set 10233, Twilight Express)
Glenn, yeah, the color inconsistency has been going on every since LEGO decided to die their own colors, instead of buying colored pellets. This is one of the biggest issues with current LEGO sets, and it doesn’t seem like LEGO is going to fix it anytime soon. Unfortunately. 🙁
I’ve never really noticed a color difference or cracked pieces. I must have good luck or bad eyes…lol. I like the old, faded parts in my buildings though.
For me it’s most noticeable in my LEGO Creator jet set: the right angle plates are all a little darker yellow than the left angle plates, resulting in half the jet looking a different color! But I don’t mind much.
If I were ever to write a letter to Lego again I would ask them to continue the pokemon Lego sets.(or were they mega blocks…….?)
LEGO has yet to have any license with Nintendo on making sets with their properties, the closest being the Legend of Zelda Cussoo project which got 10,000 votes, but LEGO rejected because of the large number of new molds it required.
Bummer! It would be sweet to have Megaman constraction sets.
I would like to test star wars LEGO sets 😀 BTW I like the last letter, I hadn’t even thought of that!
Heads , up! guys, sometimes when you ask LEGO to send a missing/broken part from a set . They sometimes ask for the box number ( on top of the ubc bars). that happend to me a couple times. I don’t know why . but they did.
I am going to write to lego about I don’t know yet
ask them for a life-long supply of bricks! 😀 just kidding
I’ve written to Lego many times. I was happy when they finally came out with white, solid color 4×5 doors, but they were not on their site to buy. They let me call them and make a special order for “replacement parts”, and I ordered 100 of them! It was cheaper than Bricklink. They are a great company. I also spoke with their “community” guy, Kevin Hinkle, about the white printing that looks pink when printed on red – he said they are looking into it.
Andy, good to hear they are looking in to the white on color printing issue. Nice they let you get those doors! Writing to LEOG doesn’t have to be about complaints, it could also be about letting them know we are happy with their service and they are doing a good job. Everybody likes to hear that once in a while. 🙂
I know what you mean about breaking pieces. From 2008-2010 bionicles were really cruddy. I stopped buying them, even though I had tons of them. The new hand molds that began at that time would simply break when you put them on.
They’re wearing shoes!
Earlier this month I had actually written a letter to LEGO as a thank you for reconnecting me back with LEGO and for bringing such joy and amusement to my son’s life. Included with the letter was a photo of me playing with LEGO when I was 12 and a more recent photo of my son playing with his LEGO Duplo.
That’s a wonderful letter and story! Thanks for sharing! Your son is absolutely adorable! Where did he get those curls? 🙂
I like lego,but im a bit shy and sending a letter about hobbit SHOES? Wow,I would never do that! 🙂
What people need to keep in mind is the TLG is a company, and LEGO is a toy. As a company, TLG has to make a profit. If they don’t, everyone will suffer. Employees will lose jobs, and we will see decreased quality. For these reasons, I don’t have a problem with LEGO prices. They are simply charging what the market will bear.
That being said, I only buy LEGO when it’s on sale. As I stated, LEGO is a toy, and thus a luxury good. Nothing more, and nothing less. I don’t “need” it, but will buy it when the price is right for me.
I have noticed color variations across bricks, but this doesn’t bother me. It breaks up the uniformity in my creations, and give my creations depth.
I have contacted LEGO a few times, but only for replacement parts. I’ve always gotten what I was missing.
TLG is an awesome company as far as I’m concerned.
vote with your wallet
I would write to them to make ninjago last FOREVER!!!!!
I LOVE LEGO FRIENDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hello david I am watchingTv
My name is Joshua, and I am 9 years old. I am really excited about creating what ever I want with my legos its really fun. Thank You
Sincerely , Joshua
Hi Lego I want to know if I can have a hotdog Lego guy. I live on Ashley road in Illinois. By the way you guys are awesome! I am a huge fan. I want to know if you can make a new Lego set. My idea is a set from the new Star Wars movie. Can you also make a Lego semi set with a cattle or hoper trailer?
Blake, the LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens sets came out a few months ago, and more are coming in January. Make sure you check the selection. 😉
I’ve been read narnia lately and I reckon LEGO Narnia sets would be a big hit. I know I would some! I especially think you should make a Dawn Treader set and a Cair Paravel set. I’m a big fan of LEGO and Narnia

Clay, you can suggest this on LEGO Ideas. If ten thousand people agree with your project, LEGO will consider making it into an official LEGO set. 🙂
Let’s say thank you lego
Hi lego designers. I am writing a very sad letter. My name is Ian. I’m only 7 years old and I want to collect all lego technic from 2015 – 2021. But I can’t because almost all of them are retired. When I grow up I will go to your design place. On that time, please listen my wish. I will still give you 20 dollars.
