Here’s an early treat for all you love struck, brick fans out there. If you’re the type of person who likes to plan ahead, and you’re thinking as early as now on what could be the perfect gift to that very special someone in your life, then this latest seasonal themed set from LEGO may just be the perfect gift. Moving forward with its successful seasonal sets, comes another one that will surely be a hit among vignette collectors – and just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Shop.LEGO.com has now listed the LEGO Romantic Valentine Picnic (40236) slated for release on January 1st of 2017. Set 40236 comes in 126 pieces (including a pair of minifigures of course) and will retail at $9.99. Here are the rest of the details.
- Includes 2 minifigures: a boy and a girl, plus a bird figure.
- Features a blooming tree, heart-shaped lawn, bouquet of flowers, red balloon and various buildable accessories and elements, including a picnic blanket, 2 sandwiches, cakes, table, 2 glasses and a bottle.
- Measures over 3” (9cm) high, 4” (12cm) wide and 4” (12cm) deep.
As a fan of these seasonal vignettes, I cannot overemphasize how much I love this set (shall I count the ways?). It’s a great contrast to other seasonal sets that features a day in the life of our minifigure couples such as the Valentine’s Day Dinner (40120) and the Thanksgiving Feast (40123).
For me, these vignettes are excellent snippets of the simple joys in life rendered in LEGO bricks, and I hope LEGO will consider releasing more of these soon.
