Do you love flowers and plants, but don’t have a green thumb? Don’t despair, because LEGO has just presented the perfect solution for you: Bonsai tree and Flower bouquet. The new Botanical sets will not only decorate the rooms of our apartments, but will also be a way to relax, letting your imagination run free. It is also a fun way to become a child again and play with the famous colored bricks.
“We are pleased to be able to support even the most adults; the sets are an excellent opportunity to switch off and relax from everyday life by immersing yourself in the creation of these beautiful botanical constructions” explains Jamie Berard, Design Lead of the Danish company. “The customizable elements and a conscious construction experience will help them, hopefully, to express their personality while their creativity can blossom freely”.
The Bouquet consists of 756 pieces of different shapes and sizes. Assembled together, they recreate the shapes and vivid colors of poppies, roses, asters, snapdragons and daisies. The great variety of species allows everyone to create a bouquet of flowers that reflects both personal taste and their interior design. The customizable stems allow you to adapt the composition to any shape and size of vase.
The Bonsai set instead consists of 878 pieces. They include not only the trunk and crown of the tree, but also a rectangular vase and a support base. The tree represents a typical Japanese cherry tree and is available in two versions; One in summer with green leaves, and the other in spring characterized by white and pink shades, inspired by hanami, the poetic tradition dedicated to observing the flowering of plants and trees.
- The Botanical Rose consists of 120 pieces. Inside you will find two red roses, green leaves and adjustable stems in length.
- The Botanical Tulips is a set of 111 pieces. Comes with 3 flowers (1 white, 1 purple and 1 yellow) fitted with bright green leaves to symbolize new spring life. Thanks to the length-adjustable stems, they can be displayed in most vases.
The Botanical sets are made of plant-based plastic, obtained using sugar cane from sustainable sources. They are available in LEGO stores, on LEGO.com and at authorized retailers. The cost is € 49.99 for the Bouquet and Bonsai, while € 12.99 for the Botanical Rose and € 9.99 for the Botanical Tulips.
