This new Lego collection is perfect for those without a green thumb

Lego wants you to go green with its new Botanical collection featuring a bonsai tree and a flower bouquet.

2020 is all but coming to a close and Lego saw it fit to release a new Lego Botanical collection for everyone with a green thumb — or at least inspiring to be a plant parent. While we already know about the wonders indoor plants does for productivity, does it apply to fake plants as well? Not if Lego has anything to say about it.

The flower bouquet is a 756-piece that features a host of colourful blooms that builders can customise as well. The flower stems are also adjustable to fit a vase of any size. Some of the flowers featured include roses, daisies, snapdragons, poppies, and asters. It can also be built as tall as 14-inches.

As for the Bonsai tree, it’s an 878-piece set that has captured the likeliness of its actual counterpart. Instead of spending a small fortune on an actual bonsai tree as well as a special pair of scissors that could go up to US$35,000, LEGO has come up with a much cheaper alternative — one that doesn’t wilt or die too.

You can choose to either fill the Bonsai tree with green leaves or pink cherry blossoms, allowing you to change out the colours to go with the current seasons. The LEGO Bonsai tree also comes with its own rectangular pot and a slatted wood-effect LEGO stand. It also has a total height of 7-inches.

Both the LEGO flower bouquet and the Bonsai tree will be available come 4th January 2021 onwards. You can find it in all certified LEGO stores as well as Legoland, the LEGO official store on Lazada and Shopee, and even major retailers and departmental stores around Malaysia. Both the LEGO flower bouquet and the Bonsai tree will go for RM219.90.
