Lego figures, called minifigures, allow children to interact with Lego structures. Since the figures consist of separate interchangeable parts, owners can take the torso, head, and legs apart and rearrange them to create brand-new characters.

Some Lego figures spring from popular culture, such as the "Simpsons", "Pirates of the Caribbean", or "Star Trek". Look for special figures, like the blue genie from Disney's "Aladdin" and the "Star Wars" character Chewbacca, both of which take on a unique form different from the standard Lego minifigure.
