In a world of constant pings, rings, dings and notifications, switching off can feel a bit, well, foreign. Have a think. When did you last take some time out of your day to do something that doesn’t involve a screen, a little tapping, some swiping? That was a long pause…

These days, the world of LEGO bricks covers every possible interest and obsession. So, here’s a roundup of some of the best LEGO sets for adults in 2021…
