I am ALWAYS looking for deals on toys. This Christmas my son asked for some very pricey LEGO sets. Of course, a $100 Millennium Falcon was NOT in my budget. So I did what every Mom would do, I started searching for ways I could make his dreams come true without breaking my bank account.

I went into the usual stops for discounted name brand toys: Big Lots, Ross, TJ Maxx.  None of them had the LEGO Millennium Falcon he so desperately desired. So I hit the Internet with EBay and Amazon. Again: nothing! I was stuck. Then, quite by accident, I stumbled upon ThePlasticBrick.com.

Eureka! They sell used complete LEGO sets, which come with the boxes and instructions. The sets are guaranteed to be complete; in fact they come fully built. The site carries all different LEGO sets: City, Toy Story, Atlantis. The products vary day to day, and they don’t have every set ever made, but they have a pretty good selection. They were even offering free shipping.

So for less than 50% of the price of the brand new set, I could get my son the one thing he really desired from Santa. My heart was beating fast as I whipped out my credit card to purchase it. He will never know that it was used, and I will get the satisfaction of seeing his face light up with the magic of Christmas.

    I am looking for lord of the rings legos, usually look on amazon or ebay. checked out this site and virtually every lord of the rings or hobbit lego set is out of stock! When i finally found a set in stock, namely Shelob Attacks from lord of the rings, the price was $27!!! and that set is a $20 set! i was very disappointed. So much for cheap legos…what a ripoff
