Lego sets could be a better investment than gold, stocks or bonds, study says

If you ever thought about investing in discontinued Lego sets, then it might be the way to go for a lot of cash.

Researchers at a Russian university checked out the rate of return when it came to collecting toys and they found high value collectibles proved to be a better investment than gold, art or financial securities.

They noted retired Lego sets that were sold on secondary markets saw prices rises close to 11% annually.

That is currently faster than the rates for gold, stocks and bonds.

According to researchers, those who invest in Legos long-term can yield positive returns two to three years after retirement.
