I can't remember the name, but it was a starter set with jack stone type minifigs. The first set that actually got me into LEGO was Hewkii mahri though.

I remember me and my sister both had two little boats. My sister had a viking in a rowing boat, I had a speed boat with a minifigure in sun glasses. Funny how I seemed to make endless creations then, always had enough pieces. Now I never have enough.

I was a wee child, and thus have absolutely no idea.~B~

I'm in the same boat. My older brother and sister owned Lego sets so naturally, I inherited them and cannot remember what I got. Nor do I remember the first set that was bought for me.

I had a Duplo jigsaw set given to me as like a birth present apparently? :PIf that doesn't count I think it'd a red race car... Can't remember much about it though except I insisted the instriction were wrong and that the streering wheel should face the front where people could see it.

Can you remember the first LEGO set you ever got?The earliest set I can remember was the Championship Challenge PN# 3409It was a soccer game with the minifigs on pegs that you could flick to kick ball.

Wow...that was my first set too. My brother always got mad when my goalie would kick the ball into the other side's goal (because it wasn't "technically possible"). :P

Probably this DUPLO table that had studs on it so you could build on it. They could also be flipped over to be used as an actual table. Was a great convenience as a kid. :PFor normal LEGO, I do believe it was a red bucket of parts. I can't seem to find a picture of the exact one online, but I still have it so know it exists. ^_^~|ET|~

Gosh, it's been so long ago. I think the first product was one of those tubs of Lego Bricks.But the first actual set....Was Union vs. Confederacy AKA American Civil War a thing? If not, it was a Legorado set. But I do know it had a dude with a Confederate uniform and a horse, and possibly some dynamite. I think my grandmother from Down South gave it to me. She's from one of those towns where they think the Civil War is still going on.

Not the least idea, although it must have been Duplo set. The earliest sets I remember having are 1183 Mummy and Cart, 6436 Go-Kart, 6437 Beach Buggy and 6457 Astronaut Figure, though. I also remember some old LEGO Space sets from my mother and dismantled Ice Planet 2000, M-Tron and Blacktron sets from a cousin, if inherited sets count.-Gata Posted Image

The 6198 Stingray Stormer. Which I got almost a year after it was released. Being four at the time I got it, it seemed like the coolest thing in the world. Now I look back on it only with regret that I was ever foolish enough to take it apart. Now, some of the pieces have broken from accidental stepping upon them and the rubber tubing has become torn at the ends. Oh how I miss this thing.Posted Image

I dunno. I can only remember I've always had a huge amount of old LEGO sets, which I shared with my brothers, given to us by a friend of my parents. However, if it's being asked "your very own and very first LEGO set", I'd say a Star Wars set with C3-PO in it and two robot thingies, but I can't remember how it was called nor why did I buy it: I've never been so much interested in Star Wars, and never seen one of the movies. But, yeah, I think that's it. Or maybe Pohatu Mata?
