Best Gifts for Animal Lovers

Looking for the purr-fect gift for the animal lover in your life?

We’ve been making LEGO® animal sets since 1935, but with so many critter-based options to choose from, it can be hard deciding on the perfect one. To help you make the all-important decision, we’ve put together a list of the best gifts for any animal enthusiast, whatever age they are.

Whether they’re exploring the ocean alongside whales and dolphins, heading into the wild with lions and tigers, or walking with dinosaurs in Jurassic Park, there are so many exciting creatures to discover in our epic animal collection.

The Insect Collection

Delight the nature lover in your life with The Insect Collection.

Featuring three life-size, posable models, this set allows LEGO® builders the chance to get up close with some of the world’s most extraordinary insects in their natural habitats.

The blue morpho butterfly comes complete with adjustable wings, a buildable flower and a honeybee. The Hercules beetle has attachable wings and horns, and the Chinese mantis shares its habitat with a 7-spotted ladybird.

For even more insect inspiration, accompanying the set is a playlist curated by award-winning Foley artist Sanaa Kelley, who has recreated each insect’s unique sounds using only LEGO bricks and packaging!

3in1 LEGO® Animal Sets

Prepare to have triple the fun with one of our amazing 3in1 sets! Designed to set imaginations soaring, each of these toys lets you choose to put the model together in three different ways, so kids (and adults) can enjoy endless hours of creative fun.

Step into the great outdoors this festive season with the Birdhouse (31143). Kids can build the cute birdhouse, complete with five birds, before turning it into a hedgehog and squirrel, or a beehive with four bees and some honeycomb.

The posable White Rabbit (31133) makes a cute gift for any animal lover, and can be turned into a white seal or cockatoo! Puppy fans will love the Adorable Dogs (31137) set, which lets kids build some of their favourite breeds including a beagle, poodle or husky.

And if you want to add an extra touch of magic, why not give the gift of a Magical Unicorn (31140), which can also be turned into a seahorse or an enchanted peacock!

Calling all dog lovers!

A great gift for kids aged 7 and over, they will love creating their own pup-inspired tales as they care for the cute dogs waiting to be adopted at the Rescue Centre.

They can use the water scooter to pull up to the dock, then head inside to clean, feed and x-ray the otters. Once they’re well again, the otters can slide into the rehab area or even swim back out to the ocean.
