Relive Apollo 11 with Lego Version of Lunar Lander and Saturn V Rocket

Apollo 11 Lunar Lander Lego
July 17, 2019

Apollo 11 Lunar LanderI don’t often write about toys, but the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 is as good a reason as any. Yes, I provide links to purchase the Lego kits on Amazon. Yes, I’ll get a tiny commission if you buy them. No, I wasn’t lucky enough to get kits of my own for free.

The “Eagle” landed on the moon surface on June 20, 1969 and the Lego Creator Apollo 11 Lunar Lander set allows you to build a toy replica out of 1087 individual pieces. I’ve included a photo of the completed set so you can see the results. It even includes minifigs of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin.

NASA Apollo Saturn V Rocket LegoIn order to get the lunar lander to the moon, it took the Saturn V rocket. That is also available to build in the LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V 21309 Outer Space Model Rocket kit. There are 1969 (what an interesting number) pieces in this kit. Also part of the kit are a less intricate version of the lunar lander and the command module that splashed down in the ocean.

Together these kits allow kids and even us big kids to have a lot of fun and provide a way to relive the historic events from 50 years ago.
