We all know LEGO. It’s a toy that never goes out of style, but that’s no accident. The brand is brilliant at finding ways to reinvent itself, and for 2021, it seems they want us home enthusiasts to get on board with its creative play ideas.

LEGO launched the Botanical collection at the very start of 2021, aimed at adults who are looking for a new pursuit this year to help destress, relax and just generally help distract from what’s happening in the wider world. In fact, the LEGO Play Well report 2020 found that 7 in 10 adults say they often research new ways to destress and over 8 in 10 say play helps them relax.

LEGO’s solution? A range of play sets that double up as home décor after you’ve finished building them.

First up from the Botanical collection is the LEGO Flower Bouquet – a 756 piece set made up of adjustable stems with snapdragons, roses, poppies, asters, daisies and different grasses to build. Could this idea replace dried grasses as the perennial pick for vases in 2021?

Next up, we have the LEGO Bonsai Tree. It’s no secret that the art of bonsai is a tricky pastime, but thankfully this imagining is beginner-friendly and doesn’t require green-fingers. You can even finish your design with green leaves or pink cherry blossoms – so cute!

The question is: would you have LEGO as decoration around your home? It’s not the first time that the building block brand has found its way onto the Good Homes team’s radar, thanks to a collaboration last year with IKEA.

For those that have long-loved the cherished children’s toy, we think these will be a smash hit!
