Best-Lock Construction Toys is a brand of plastic building bricks that are compatible with Lego, but are sold more cheaply. They have become more widely available since defeating a patent challenge from Lego in the Oberlandesgericht, Hamburg in 2004.[1][2] In a further case in 2009, Lego was denied trademark protection for the shape of its bricks;[3] however, in 2015, Best-Lock lost two cases in the European Court in which they attempted to deny Lego trademark protection on the shape of its minifigs.[4][5]

Best-Lock's sets cover Wild West, pirate and construction themes and, unlike Lego, include military models.

Best-Lock (Europe) Ltd is based in Colne, Lancashire, England.
