In December, though oddly after Christmas, LEGO introduced new hort-based sets. The Botanical Collection includes a Flower Bouquet set and a Bonsai Tree set. Both were created to help older LEGO fans both bring a little “nature” into the home and also to unwind in a creative way by customizing their botanical builds. Said the press release announcing the new collection, “The new sets could provide the perfect perennial project for those looking to get creative, de-stress and find moments of mindfulness in a day.”

“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 customizable elements and mindful building experience will hopefully help them express their personality as their creativity blossoms.”

And although they tout that many of the elements are made from plant-based plastic, they kinda brag that “LEGO plants don’t need to be watered to stay fresh.” To find out more about the new LEGO Botanical Collection, visit lego.build/FlowerBouquetReveal or lego.build/BonsaiTreeReveal. GP
