A page on its website reads: "Brickin It is a family run independent LEGO specialist, selling new and secondhand parts, sets, instructions in fact if it’s to do with LEGO we probably have it or can obtain it!

"We have a range of current LEGO sets as well as a selection of deleted and vintage items from the 1960s to the present day. If there is a particular set that you are after we offer a service where we will try and track down the item for you.

"We also offer a spares and replacement part service for that important lost piece."

Lego, based in Denmark, began manufacturing the interlocking toy bricks in 1949 and since then a global Lego subculture has developed, supporting movies, games, competitions, and six Legoland amusement parks.

As of July 2015, 600 billion Lego parts had been produced and in the same year Lego replaced Ferrari as Brand Finance's "world's most powerful brand."
