LEGO Building Instructions

Have you lost the instruction to make a LEGO item but the item has been broken or completely taken apart? LEGO has on their website a way for you to download.

Fill in the following from this page.


Type in the item number or type in a description.
Click on the magnifying glass on the right to start the search.

Example:
I typed in Minecraft Ender Dragon.
It could not find that so I typed in Minecraft and it listed all the kits with Minecraft.
Found what I wanted.















This window appears.
I confirmed it was the item I wanted.

It opened in Adobe Reader. I can now save the pdf document to my computer.
