‘Lego Minifigure – A Visual History,’ written by Daniel Lipkowitz, from DK Books.

We are a house of mega Lego fans so you can imagine the huge levels of excitement when the new edition of the Lego Minifigure visual history arrived during lockdown! The exclusive orange spaceman Minifigure encased in the cover was a highly sought-after prize!

‘Celebrate the epic journey of the LEGO® minifigure. Features an exclusive orange spaceman!

Enter the world of minifigures with this fully updated edition. The first minifigure was created in 1978, and today the entire minifigure population could circle the globe more than five times! 

Starring more than 2,000 of the most popular and rarest minifigures from the LEGO® Minifigure Series and themes including LEGO® NINJAGO®, THE LEGO® MOVIE™, LEGO® Star Wars™, LEGO® City, LEGO® Harry Potter™, and many more. 

From astronauts and vampires to Super Heroes and movie characters, feast your eyes on the most awesome minifigures of every decade!’

This wonderful book is sure to delight Lego fans of all ages. My own children have spent hours poring over the pages, spotting new figures they need to add to their collections alongside old and much played with favourites. I now have to search for Forky from Toy Story 4, and Book Boy Junior would quite like a limited edition Mr Gold made from actual gold!

I really enjoyed looking back at the Minifigure a of my childhood (the eighties!) but my sons were aghast at the lack of variety in facial expressions and outfits – simpler times. The evolution of the basic Minifigure to the fantastically detailed and accessorised figures we have now is astounding!

The stunning photos, easy to navigate chronological format and snippets of information make this highly-accessible book a pleasure to read. 7+
