Ever wanted to relive your childhood memories of watching Winnie the Pooh and his buddies mess around in the Hundred Acre Woods? Well, now you can with this upcoming (and utterly massive) new LEGO set.
LEGO Ideas (courtesy of LEGO fan designer Ben Alder) is responsible for creating this Winnie the Pooh LEGO set for us adults. LEGO’s own website is selling this Hundred Acre Wood-sized set for a “mere” $99.99. Okay, yeah, that’s actually really expensive. To make matters worse, this set is launching in April 1, 2021; so you can’t even get it until then. However, there is a reason why LEGO is selling this for $100. A bunch of reasons, really.
LEGO Winnie the Pooh: Details for Adults
The Winnie the Pooh LEGO set contains a grand total of 1265 individual pieces. Yeah, this is definitely not meant to be a kid’s LEGO set, no matter what the subject matter is. That is, if you didn’t already notice the 18 and up age rating on the box. Although you can build this with your kid if you want to, assuming that you have any.
Aside from the sheer number of bricks, this Winnie the Pooh LEGO set comes with five different minifigures. Pooh himself is there, as well as Piglet, Tigger, Rabbit, and Eeyore. Perhaps eventually, they’ll get around to Owl, Kanga, Roo, and the others too one of these days.
The Winnie the Pooh LEGO set also contains a number of details that makes you think back to your childhood. Like the badly spelled “Mr. Sanders” on top of the front door of Pooh’s house, a map of the Hundred Acre Woods, and even pots of “Hunny [sic]” for you to place around at will. Even little touches like the spinning bees below the beehive will make you smile, and remember the days of when Winnie the Pooh was the highlight of your day.
The Winnie the Pooh LEGO set, while ostensibly about a kid‘s show, is most definitely for adults. If you want to relive your childhood, you can do so from LEGO for $100. At least, once it launches on April 1, 2021.
