“Come on babe, why don’t we paint the town? And all that jazz!” Well, we can certainly paint the Lego town red with the Lego Jazz Club. This set is part of the modular building’s collection, meaning that you can easily slot the club into your other modular builds. Or if you don’t fancy displaying this set alongside a friend, it still looks splendid as a standalone piece.

This set encourages mindfulness and creativity and is very much an adult-oriented building set. Construction involves innovative techniques, including a stylish 45-degree doorway. The club features many detailed sections including a pizzeria, a tailor’s workshop, a rooftop garden, and the jazz band’s dressing room.

The set comes with eight Minifigures, including a jazz singer, bassist, and drummer. Brimming with detail, the jazz club also comes with a mini microphone, saxophone, and LP record. It measures over 30 cm, 25 cm wide and 26 cm deep – a very reasonable size.

The Lego Wildflower Bouquet shows just how well Lego translates naturally beautiful flowers into plastic. For many, arranging a Lego flower set is just as rewarding as displaying the real thing. And unlike their organic counterparts, you never have to water them.

Priced at $59.99 (£54.99), this set is a fantastic investment. The Wildflowers Bouquet showcases a vibrant bouquet featuring 16 individual stems. Some pieces are crafted from plant-based plastic derived from sustainably sourced sugarcane.

From rich blue cornflowers to bright pink and yellow gerbera daisies, this set is packed with detail. You’ll even recognise some Lego elements. For instance, pirate hats are used to create the lupin petals and ores for the gerberas.

Despite its intricate detail, the build is relaxing rather than overly complex. The concept is fun, making it a splendid gift idea. Picture this: grab a vase, fill it with small blue tiles, and voilà—the look is complete!

When the conversation turns to France, it’s almost a guarantee that the Eiffel Tower takes center stage. It’s no wonder, then, that Lego pays tribute to this icon with a dedicated Lego Eiffel Tower set. Engineered by Gustave Eiffel, the Eiffel Tower soars to a height of 330 meters, and the actual tower took 22 months to complete. Thankfully, its Lego counterpart takes a lot less time to construct.

The Eiffel Tower comes together in four sections. Because of this, you can break it down if you ever decide to change its placement. Like the actual tower, it has three observation platforms, lifts doing the cabling dance, a broadcast tower, and Gustave Eiffel’s executive suite up there in the clouds. Helpfully, it’s also built as sturdy as the real deal.

The Lego Eiffel Tower isn’t just a pile of bricks; it’s a 10,001-piece behemoth, standing tall at 149 cm, 57 cm wide, and 57 cm deep— a towering titan of tiny plastic blocks. Sure, the $629.99 (£554.99) price tag might raise an eyebrow, but hey, it’s the head honcho of the Lego Travel and History series. It’s not just a Lego set; it’s an architectural marvel!

The set boasts a detailed V8 engine, functional steering, and doors that open, along with an accessible bonnet and boot. To add a touch of nostalgia, it comes with retro car collectibles – furry dice and a printed tile featuring a car magazine. Indulge in the spirit of this classic car without breaking the bank. This set will only set you back $169.99 (£149.99).

Alright, gather for the epic tale of Transformers, where Optimus Prime and his Autobot crew are duking it out with Megatron’s Decepticons, the ‘bad guys.’ These giant robots decide to play hide-and-seek disguised as cars, trucks, and who knows what else. For many of us, Transformers hold a special place in our hearts as we grew up watching the cartoon and playing with the figures. And now, you can even own a Lego Optimus Prime.

Whether in truck or robot mode, this set has got you covered. It contains a plethora of accessories including an Iron blaster, an Energon axe and a jetpack. But wait, there’s more! Crack open his chest chamber, and behold, the Autobot Matrix of Leadership. Size-wise, we’re talking 15 cm in truck mode and a towering 35 cm in robot mode.

This set isn’t just a collaboration; it’s a love affair between Hasbro and Lego, channeling the OG vibes of Optimus Prime’s first-gen toy design. With 19 points of articulation, this metallic maestro is your poseable masterpiece. Sure, it has a price tag of around ($179.99) £159.00, but it has a mighty piece count of 1,508 pieces and promises a challenging build. The nostalgia practically emanates from this Lego gem.

Roses are red, violets are blue. But who needs violets when a fabulous Lego Bouquet of Roses exists? This set is perfect to gift on Birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day, or just to yourself because it’s the weekend. Remember, Lego flowers do not decay!

This set features a dozen red roses. It showcases roses at different growth stages, featuring four roses in full bloom, four blossoming, and four in bud. To complete the display it comes with four sprigs of baby’s breath with small white flowers. The tallest measures 31 cm long, but the stems vary in length to create a layered look.

A fun feature of this set is that you can build solo or with company. The set is separated into six brick bags and separate instructions so you can build together. For an even grander display, why not double up this set, or combine it with another? The Wildflower set would look fabulous with the Roses, no?
