Top 10 Best LEGO Technic Sets And Details

LEGO is such a massive brand, it’s hard to find anybody who hasn’t heard of them, bought their building sets… or stepped on one of the bricks and yelled out in pain at some point.

From humble beginnings as a small carpentry business in Denmark back in 1932, the LEGO Group has gone on to become one of the biggest companies and most influential brands in the world.

The company has constantly been discovering new ways to revolutionise a kid’s play experience, and has released over seven thousand LEGO sets, encompassing over 40 different themes.

LEGO Technic is just one of the more recent examples of how this company is constantly pushing the boundaries and making the LEGO building experience and play experience more challenging and rewarding for kids, teens, and even adults.
