Have your kids outgrown their LEGO collection?

This week, The LEGO Group announced LEGO Replay, a pilot program that will accept used LEGO bricks and donate them to children’s non-profits in the United States. This partnership with Give Back Box, Teach For America, and Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston aims to give your unused LEGO collection a second life!.

To make a donation, simply round up any loose LEGO pieces (can be Duplo, small bricks and big bricks and they don’t need to be full sets), place them into a cardboard box, and visit www.lego.com/replay to print out a free UPS shipping label.

The donated bricks will then be sent to the Give Back Box facility, where each brick will be inspected, sorted, and cleaned.

Tim Brooks, Vice President of Environmental Responsibility at the LEGO Group, and his team spent about three years planning LEGO Replay to ensure that the process meets the highest quality and safety standards according to U.S. regulations.

“We know people don’t throw away their LEGO bricks,” said Brooks. “The vast majority hand them down to their children or grandchildren. But others have asked us for a safe way to dispose of or to donate their bricks. With Replay, they have an easy option that’s both sustainable and socially impactful.”

The majority of LEGO elements collected will go to Teach For America, which will then distribute them to thousands of classrooms across the country. Bricks will also be sent to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston for their after-school programs. Both non-profits should receive their first shipments this November.

Once the LEGO Replay pilot ends in spring 2020, the LEGO Group will consider the possibility of expanding the program. To learn more or to print out a shipping label for your donation, visit lego.com.

    This is a really neat idea! I love buying sets of used duplos and legos for cheap at thrift shops and yard sales, though! My kids love all the random loose pieces we find.

      You can find some pretty sweet ones at yard sales, E!

    Yes, my daughter just bought one last week at a yard sales and, luckily, was still 99% complete. My youngest son will definitely love this, too, when he grows up. I hope that the Replay is still available when that time comes or I will send it off to the kids in my home Asian country that doesn’t have much toys such as my nieces and nephews who will, absolutely, appreciate this toys.😉😉😉

    Or donate them to your local schools!! My local school does a lego club and our local college does Lego robotics club, but because they are so expensive they depend on donations and because they do not get many donations only so many kids can join.

      I do realize that they are sending them to schools and to clubs, but call your local schools first and ask them if they need Lego donations.

    What a coincidence lol I was just talking to my brother and mom at dinner last night how boring it is sometimes at work. (I work in a call center and not many people starting to call in now so slow days) That I would buy small Lego sets to do at work but then I don’t know what I would do with them afterwards. lol This works out great
