LEGO has made several unique sets with many similar names which can make it hard to find a specific LEGO piece by their names.

However, they use numbers as a quick and convenient way to instantly find and identify individual LEGO sets. These numbers were initially made of three digits, but they started using longer numbers as they made more and more sets.

Currently, LEGO set numbers are about five to seven digits long featured on the box and instructions of each individual set.

You can also find the set number on the LEGO website in case you don’t have the box and instructions with you.

And just like set numbers, each LEGO piece has its unique element number. For new LEGO sets, the element number is listed at the back of the set’s building instructions.

Also, in addition to the element number, many LEGO parts have a design number which is a four or five-digit number molded on the inside of the piece. The design number is very small and you may need to rotate under a bright light to see it. 

Design number and color are great ways to identify individual LEGO pieces.

Once you’ve identified the set number and the element number of the missing pieces you want to find. You can enter these numbers on the Brick & Pieces section of the LEGO website to see if the part is available to buy. The numbers can also be used to find LEGO parts on Pick A Brick too, you just need to enter the number into the search bar.
