You don’t need green fingers to introduce a bit of organic beauty into your home with the latest line-up from Lego.
The toymaker has launched a Botanical Collection, which lets Lego hobbyists (or older kids) tinker with modular blocks to build their own colourful bouquet or a bonsai tree to add a bit of zen in their space . Comprising two sets, they also include various elements made from plant-based plastic that are produced with sustainably sourced sugarcane.
“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,” says Jamie Berard, Design Lead at the Lego Group. “The customisable elements and mindful building experience will hopefully help them express their personality as their creativity blossoms.”
Lego Bonsai Tree, $79.90
The Lego Bonsai Tree model building kit comes with a rectangular pot and a slatted wood-effect Lego stand. The 878-piece set has green leaf pieces that you can use to shape your own bonsai tree.
