LEGO® fans and kids of all ages will love these delightful stop-motion animated LEGO® videos! We've tried to provide a variety of the "best of the best." If you know of another favorite that you would like to suggest, please e-mail .

The Magic Portal

The Magic Portal is one of the very first LEGO® animations, dating back to the 1980's. Filmed on old-fashioned 16 mm film, this 16-minute movie is still one of the best. Click on the link or photo above for the official site where you can download the movie, view the original storyboards, etc.

Okay, so it's not LEGO bricks, but it's still a construction toy and a cool movie!

Stop-Motion Animation
This three minute film made for a science fair project sets out to communicate one simple idea - how stop-motion animation works. It's not in-depth, it's not a how-to, but instead it's a brief snippet of LEGO animation, communicating a basic explanation of stop motion photography.

Animation Class: Lesson 1
This lesson tells you, in an entertaining way, the various people and equipment you will need when making your own film.

Earthquake in NY

Curiosity Killed the Stormtrooper

Star Wars: The Han Solo Affair
This stop-motion animated short presents an alternative version of the events which follow Han Solo's capture in The Empire Strikes Back. A must-see for Star Wars fans with its great audio, humor, and effects.

Spider-Man: The Peril of Doc Ock
A stop motion LEGO short by Spite Your Face Productions Ltd, commissioned by Sony Pictures/Marvel Studios/The Lego Group to accompany the release of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2. Watch as Lego versions of Spider-Man and Doc Ock battle it out across New York. Fun and exciting!

The Letter
Who would have thought it could be so much trouble to mail a letter? This cute little film is fun to watch with its clear and crisp quality, great sets, incredible sound, awesome effects, perfectly smooth movement, entertaining plot, and off-the-wall slapstick comedy. It's so wonderfully detailed, edited and scripted... the director seems to have perfected his craft in his very first film. Parents of small children, watch it yourself first to see whether they might be bothered by the mild violence.

More LEGO Movies - History & Science
Paul Revere, World War I, World War II, Gold Rush, Physics, Chemistry, Lab Safety, etc.

More LEGO Movies - Religious & Holiday
The Creation Story, The Good Samaritan, A Christmas Carol, etc.

As you can see, we found quite a few LEGO videos on YouTube. You will also find many LEGO experiments and stop-motion animations there. For example, just type "Lego experiment" in the search box. But safeguard yourself and remember that not everything on YouTube is appropriate for children. Please make sure an adult does the searching and pre-screening.
