LEGO superfans flocked to the opening day of the company’s first dedicated shop in Ireland.

After appearing on last year’s Late Late Toy Show, Waterford boy Finn Ryan has officially opened a shop on Dublin’s Grafton Street.

Finn, 8, now cancer-free after battling an illness for several years, is a Lego fan and recently took a trip to Legoland, Denmark.

The store has some eye-catching Lego models inspired by Dublin and Irish culture, including a camogie player, poolbeg chimney and Aviva Stadium.

Customers can create personalized products, such as their very own LEGO minifigure.

The store has introduced a controlled queuing system with wristbands on opening weekend.

Natalie Stojovic, senior vice president of Lego Retail, said she was thrilled to see so many fans visit Ireland’s first Lego store.

“It’s great to see our guests interacting with the latest in-store experiences and new retailtainment concepts,” she said.

“The Dublin store will allow builders of all ages to be inspired by endless play possibilities and new builders to welcome them on an exciting new journey of discovery into the LEGO universe.”
