For anyone who loves having flowers at home all year round, LEGO have revealed a new range for nature enthusiasts that are made from plant-based plastic with their decorative Botanical Collection.
LEGO aims to creates mindful building experiences for adults especially with its Botanical Collection, which features a stunning Flower Bouquet and a Bonsai Tree.
LEGO’s Flower Bouquet is a 756-piece set featuring a host of beautiful blooms in an array of nature-inspired colours that older builders can customise as their flowers flourish.
The flower stems are adjustable so it’s easy to tailor the arrangement to suit any vase. A combination of snapdragons, roses, poppies, asters, daisies, and different grasses can be arranged in the bouquet in a number of ways to suit the mood of the builder and the design of the room.
The flower bouquet set also includes a host of LEGO elements that feature new colours and shapes to perfectly recreate petal shapes.
The Botanical Collection also includes the 878-piece LEGO Bonsai Tree model building kit. Builders can enjoy a sense of calm as they carefully shape the bonsai tree model with either green leaves or pink cherry blossoms. When ready for a change or when the season starts to turn, it’s easy to swap the coloured crowns to create a totally new look.
The LEGO Bonsai Tree model comes with a rectangular pot and a slatted wood-effect LEGO stand, creating a pretty display piece to take pride of place in any home or office. Those who look very closely may even notice the little frogs that make up each blossom.
Both sets in the new LEGO Botanical Collection include a number of elements made from plant-based plastic, produced using sustainably sourced sugarcane.
Jamie Berard, Design Lead at the LEGO Group, said: “As adults look for new ways to switch off and relax, we’re delighted to be able to help them seek solace from their busy everyday lives as they immerse themselves in creating these beautiful botanical builds. The customisable elements and mindful building experience will hopefully help them express their personality as their creativity blossoms.”
