The series, out in January, includes sets for making realistic bonsai trees and colorful flower bouquets aimed at an adult audience looking for a way to relax.
According to the Lego Play Well Study 2020, 70% of adults are looking for new ways to relieve stress, and Lego believes playing with sets like these can “bring attention and stress relief to busy adults every day.”
“I think a lot of people are looking for ways to change their mood and relax,” Lego Group Design Lead Jamie Berard said in a statement. “We are excited to help you seek solace in your busy day through this beautiful Lego botanical collection.”
The Lego Bonsai Tree model can make two types of trees, evergreen and sakura trees. You can also create new trees to reflect the changing seasons. There are also small pink frogs hiding in the petals of the cherry blossom. The set also includes a rectangular flowerpot and a wooden pedestal.
The Lego Flower Bouquet set allows users to build snapdragons, roses, poppies, asters, daisies and even pampas grass. The length of the stem is adjustable and can be easily arranged to fit any vase.
You can also combine Lego Rose 40460 and Lego Tulip 40461 (sold separately) to customize your bouquets. Even cooler, these Lego Botanicals bricks are made from plant-derived plastic elements made from sustainable sugar cane.
Lego Botanicals sets will be available for purchase in Japan Lego store, Benelic Store on Rakuten and Amazon.co.jp.
