Lego BASIC

The following sets are part of the Lego BASIC theme.

Basic was one of LEGO’s main product lines that made use of System bricks and consisted of sets that solely focused on the building aspect of LEGO. The sets were mainly composed of simple, basic LEGO System bricks and contained only few, if any, of the highly specialized pieces that can be found in later products.
