LEGO launches Botanical Collection and the bricks are made from plant-based building blocks

LEGO released The Botanical Collection last month, which features sets that allow for participants to build pieces inspired by nature after a research showed 81 percent of adults worldwide relieve stress through play.

Not only this, but 73 percent of adults look for creative ways to destress weekly so LEGO created this new line of toys that retail for $49.99 (£35.90).

The Botanical Collection includes a Flower Bouquet and a Bonsai Tree. The Flower Bouquet is a set of 756 pieces that comes with adjustable flower stems, grass, and a variety of artificial flowers such as daisies, poppies, and roses. The bouquets are completely customizable so that the builder can personalize their creations and display them however they want. The Bonsai Set has 878 pieces and is similarly customizable, offering builders the choice between pink cherry blossoms or green leaves.

The sets are also made up of plant-based pieces produced from sustainably sourced sugarcane.

Jamie Berard, design lead at LEGO Group says that they hope that these mindfully made sets will help people take a break from their everyday stresses and express their personalities through creativity without compromising the environment with single-use plastic.
