What are they talking about? With so many acronyms flying about, having a LEGO term glossary like this one will help you decipher the SNOT from the SNIR. The number of acronyms being thrown about, isn’t quite as much as in the tech world, but it’s close!
Enjoy and if you think we’ve missed any key words, please shout out.

  • Dark Ages

    Those dark periods of time where an AFOL lost interest in LEGO and pursued other interests. But it's like the MAFIA: Once you're in, you can never get out. Sooner or later you'll return to the life of an AFOL.
  • Diorama

    A large scene built out of LEGO. E.g. Oscar's LEGO Star Wars Diorama
  • DSS

    The Dreaded Sticker Sheet - The sheet of stickers that comes with some sets. We agree some sets look better with the stickers, we'd gladly pay a little more to have all elements printed.
  • Duplo

    A LEGO product line built for younger children. The Elements are larger and easier to hold and build with. Even when grown up, a Duplo tower is still fantastic fun to build then bash down. Try it out!
