LEGO fans can now build their own orchid

·1-min read

LEGO fans will soon be able to decorate their homes with their very own orchid plants built out of toy bricks.

The toymaker has announced two stunning new additions to its Botanical Collection - the LEGO Orchid and its LEGO Succulents selection.

LEGO fans can create the showstopping blooms of a flowering orchid with a new set featuring six large flowers and two newly opened flowers which can be customised to create a flawless arrangement for any space, without the worry of how often to water it.

"The design of this set was inspired by a real Orchid we had in the office throughout the design process, so we could see how the flower changed through the seasons," said Michael Psiaki, Lead Designer at the LEGO Group. "A challenge with this set was creating a cylindrical pot from LEGO elements that would be fun to build but also beautiful to look at."

The LEGO Succulents set is the gift that keeps on giving, with nine individual plants and cacti that can be built and connected together artistically or displayed individually and rearranged depending on the season or the décor.

"They say having succulents in a room helps you focus, and we hope this set gives the same feeling," said Anderson Ward Grubb, Senior Designer at The LEGO Group.

"We wanted to create a set that offers a relaxing and mindful building experience to help adults switch off from their busy lives and to most importantly re-focus on something they enjoy."

The sets will be available to pre-order from 14 April from LEGO.com and selected retailers for $49.99.
