We have Big Bird’s Nest, Abby Cadabby’s Garden, Elmo’s Bedroom, Bert and Ernie’s Bedroom, Cookie Monster’s Monsterpiece Theater, and Mr. Hooper’s Store among many others. There’s also an easter egg reference hidden in Elmo’s room that shows a micro build replica of the LEGO Thatcher Perkins Locomotive (396) released in 1976.
Seldom does a new LEGO Ideas set get’s the green light in having new LEGO pieces, and the 123 Sesame Street (21324) is an exception. All five main minifigures in this set are made from new LEGO elements, such as the minifig heads for Big Bird, Bert, Ernie, Cookie Monster, and Elmo.
New printed elements also include the famous Sesame Street sign, a printed 1×2 brick with the 123 address of the building, a clear minifigure head for Dorothy’s goldfish bowl, a printed ball element for Oscar the Grouch, and a printed heart element for his pet Slimy. There’s also a total of 22 stickers in this set, among which includes a pretty neat homage to Ivan Guerrero, the LEGO fan designer behind this set. This particular sticker is found in Elmo’s room, featuring a letter written by Elmo to his friend Ivan.

Step Up To The Brand-New LEGO® Ideas 123 Sesame Street
Imagined by a keen LEGO builder and seasoned Sesame Street fan, the first-ever Sesame Street product from the LEGO Group will be available from 1st November from LEGO.com and LEGO Stores.
Billund, October 22, 2020: Voted for by LEGO brick lovers all over the world, a wonderfully nostalgic new LEGO Ideas set has been brought to life after being envisioned by an avid builder. The brand-new LEGO® Ideas 123 Sesame Street set is the latest product from the LEGO Ideas collection, which conceptualizes and produces the creative wonders imagined and voted for by LEGO brick fans themselves.
Created with all the delightful elements of 123 Sesame Street, the new set is packed with authentic details from the famous New York City neighborhood. From Bert and Ernie’s apartment, in which Bert famously pleaded with Ernie to remove a banana from his ear so he could hear better, to Big Bird’s nest, where the grown-ups finally met Mr. Snuffleupagus in person – builders will marvel in Sesame Street’s most memorable moments.
As they embark on their immersive build journey of LEGO® Ideas 123 Sesame Street, seasoned LEGO fans and younger builders alike can take a trip down memory lane, passing by Hooper’s Store, Oscar the Grouch’s trash can, and many more quintessential Sesame Street locations, making it the perfect set to enjoy on your own or together as a family. Fans can even bring their favorite characters and show moments to life with the brand new and exclusive buildable minifigures which have been molded specifically for the set, including characters such as Cookie Monster, Elmo, and Big Bird.
The new LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street set is part of the LEGO Ideas collection, which offers fans the opportunity to submit their own brick creations with the chance to have their concept brought to life with the help of LEGO master designers and a share of the profits. Other recent LEGO Ideas sets inspired by LEGO fans, include the LEGO Ideas Grand Piano and the LEGO Ideas Friends Central Perk.
Created by Sesame Street fan and LEGO enthusiast Ivan Guerrero, this set brings together the magic of the iconic New York City street with the mindful and creative building experience of LEGO bricks to create an instant classic.
Speaking about the creative journey, Ivan Guerrero said: “As a long-time fan of the LEGO Group and Sesame Street, it has been a dream come true to be able to merge my two passions into a memorable set for fellow builders to enjoy. LEGO bricks and Sesame Street shaped both my childhood and adult years, and the opportunity to work with the LEGO Ideas team to bring this quintessential New York street to life has been thrilling.”
Federico Begher, VP of Global Marketing at The LEGO Group added: “We were instantly drawn to Ivan’s idea, as we had never created an official LEGO product with Sesame Street before. It was clear from the submission that Ivan is passionate about Sesame Street and he really brought it to life with a wide array of characters and bright, classic colors. For the first time in the history of LEGO Ideas, we also had the opportunity to create brand new minifigures for a set – bringing something new and exciting to our LEGO fans.
Knowing the impact Sesame Street has had on the world for decades, sharing similar values with generations past and present, this felt like an exciting way to blend novelty with nostalgia, and pay homage to the truly iconic 123 Sesame Street through LEGO Ideas.”
“Your imagination and creativity can take you places—and with the help of LEGO Ideas, it’s now transporting fans to Sesame Street where you’re never too old for a playdate,” said Gabriela Arenas, Sesame Workshop’s Vice President of Licensing, North America.
Once built, the 1,367-piece LEGO® 123 Sesame Street is sure to bring excitement and nostalgia into any space, measuring 9” (24cm) high, 13.5” (35cm) wide and 8.2” (21cm) deep.
The new LEGO® Ideas 123 Sesame Street set is the latest example of how the LEGO Group aims to inspire builders of all ages to build, rebuild and get excited by the process of creation.
LEGO® 123 Sesame Street will be available directly via LEGO.com and LEGO Stores from 1st November.
I have to admit, I’m totally hyped for this one. Since its announcement as the next official LEGO Ideas set from last year’s LEGO Ideas First 2019 Review Stage, I’m absolutely looking forward to this brick version of one of my most endearing childhood memories. Inspired by my fellow Filipino LEGO fan builder Ivan Guerrero, this is something that I am raring to see displayed alongside my LEGO Ideas Voltron (21311) set. The long wait will finally pay off now that we are inching closer to the official reveal of the LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street (21324).
Though there ain’t much to see just yet, LEGO nevertheless gave us a teaser on what to expect from its next LEGO Ideas set. As we can see from their official social media channels, we can now glimpse at the very first Sesame Street Cookie Monster minifigure.
Based on this teaser video, we can see some of the LEGO elements that hint at the colorful minifigure characters that will most likely appear in this set. We have, of course, Cookie Monster, Oscar the Grouch together with his trash can, Elmo and his goldfish, Ernie with his all-time favorite rubber duckie, Bert with his box of paper clips, and of course Big Bird and his cuddly teddy bear.
If you’re keeping pulse over at the LEGO fan community at Instagram, you may have already stumbled upon some leaked info regarding the LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street (21324) set. For one, the official brick rendition will be noticeably smaller than the fan design originally submitted by Ivan. Instead of opening sideways like a modular set, it seems that LEGO designers opted for two buildings that are joined together to create the impression of houses on Sesame Street. It is somewhat similar to the design concept to that of the LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley (75978). Frankly speaking, I was looking forward to the design team being faithful to Ivan’s original vision for the set. I will love to see 123 Sesame Street rendered into a modular set that can be opened to reveal the neat, subtle details of each room the way I remember them in the TV shows.
The official LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street (21324) set will come in at 1,760 pieces and will retail for 119.99 Euros once its debuts next month. Be sure to stay tuned for more updates on this set anytime soon.
I have to admit that I haven’t covered much of what’s going on over at LEGO Ideas during these past weeks – I only managed to keep track of the first eight qualifiers for the current review stage early in June. But to my surprise this morning, I was greeted by my inbox with this fascinating update from the LEGO Ideas Team. In a record-breaking feat, the LEGO Ideas platform has listed 35 qualifiers for its Second 2020 LEGO Ideas Review Stage. What is even more fascinating is that it even bested its previous record of 26 qualified submissions during the First 2020 LEGO Ideas Review which concluded last May.
These current 35 product idea qualifiers managed to garner the needed support from 10,000 LEGO fans from the period of early May until September 7. And for someone who has been following the LEGO Ideas scene during the past years, all I can say is that this is insanely cool! This only shows that no pandemic can ever stop the creativity of our brick-loving, LEGO community.
I can just also imagine the sheer amount of work awaiting the LEGO Ideas Review Team considering that as Hasan Jensen, LEGO Ideas Engagement Manager puts it, they are still hard at work in reviewing the qualifiers from the previous review stage. And with the next cycle of product submissions now officially commencing today and until January 4, 2021, the Review Team must clearly work, double or even triple time.
In case you missed it, here are the 35 qualifiers for the Second 2020 LEGO Ideas Review Stage. Feel free to list your favorites at the comments below, and congratulations once again to all the qualifiers!
Its August 1st, and it can only mean that more LEGO sets are now put on display at your local brand LEGO store (in case they’re now open) and over at LEGO Shop@Home. And this month, it seems that LEGO has the adult fan community in mind when it launched its impressive wave of LEGO 18+ sets, catering to the more discerning LEGO hobbyist in mind.
Since LEGO began introducing its 18+ sets branding with the LEGO Star Wars Helmet Collection, the LEGO Group made it a point to offer larger, more sophisticated sets to the AFOL (Adult Fans of LEGO) community. And since then, we’ve seen a steady increase of sets representing each of LEGO’s current themes.
Just to be sure that everything is covered though, LEGO has also released other sets intended for all ages coming from its various licensed and homegrown themes. With 55 new sets offered this month (as per Brickset’s count), I’m pretty sure there is something that will catch your fancy. We have a handful of new sets coming from other LEGO themes such as Star Wars, Super Mario, Harry Potter, Technic, Friends, City, Ninjago, Hidden Side and my personal favorite, Monkie Kid. Take note that depending on your region, some of these sets might still be released on a later date.
Check out these LEGO 18+ sets now available at LEGO’s online shopping portal. And if you wish to add them to your LEGO must-have list for this month, be kind enough to click on the following affiliate links below to support our work here in The Brick Show. Read on and happy building!
Its been a long time coming and thankfully, the LEGO Ideas Team has finally ushered in what could probably be the most sophisticated LEGO Ideas set as of to date. The LEGO Ideas Grand Piano (21323) has been finally unveiled, giving us a closer look at the intricate details and the complex designing that were involved in creating this musical brick masterpiece.
Coming in at 3,662 pieces, the official LEGO Ideas Grand Piano (21323) is the brainchild of musician and avid LEGO builder Donny Chen (aka Sleepy Cow over at the LEGO Ideas platform). Though the journey was quite long, the waiting time is definitely worth it. It took more than a year before we saw the realization of Donny’s vision for this grand masterpiece. Back in May 2019, the LEGO Ideas Team needed more time to review the Grand Piano when it was shortlisted during the LEGO Ideas Third 2018 Review Stage. It eventually had the thumbs up to become the next official LEGO Ideas set in September of last year together with another much-awaited approved set, the LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street.
The LEGO Ideas Grand Piano (21323) is one of the many 18+ LEGO sets that are intended for adult fans of LEGO due to its aesthetics, sophisticated features, and the degree of complexity required in building the set. And what is cool about this set is that the LEGO Ideas design team managed to add music to this set through the help of the LEGO Powered Up app linked to its motor. The music will come from the app itself while providing a real-time interface in controlling the motor, and vice versa. Check out the designer video below for a closer look at what to expect from this next LEGO Ideas set.
The LEGO Ideas Grand Piano is expected to retail for $349.99 once it is available on August 1. Read on for the set’s official product description and press release. You may also click on the following affiliate link below if you wish to add this to your LEGO must-haves.

A huge congratulations to the following LEGO product ideas for making it to this elite circle:
Home Alone. McCallister’s House by Alex Storozhuk (aka adwind)
Home Alone – is a 1990 Christmas movie… Come on, you guys all know what Home Alone is! Let’s talk about what this movie has become to thousands of us around the globe. To our family Home Alone is a Christmas tradition, symbol, and very warm memories of childhood! So in this project, I and my wife Nadya tried to put as much love and details as we could!
This set consists of 3000 pieces. McCallister’s house has 2 floors full of furniture and stuff from the movie and of course, it features a mansard. There is a small tree house outside with a rope that links it with the main structure to help Kevin escape.
The main roof and kitchen roof are removable and also the house itself is openable to let you recreate scenes and make your own stories!
Here you may see the main hall, kitchen and dining area, brick-built stairs, mom and dad bedroom, Buzz room, 2 bathrooms, storeroom.
I have designed and built this replica typewriter, that has a working hand-cranked mechanism. I originally developed the idea whilst I was on the Legomasters TV show in the UK. Since then I have continued to refine the design, making a hand-cranked mechanism instead of a power functions motor that I had originally fitted. I have also had the keys printed up with letters. I believe this would make a fun and unique lego ideas project. I think it showcases the versatility of the Lego brick and would look amazing on any Lego fans desk, at home or even in the office at work!
I hope to add more updates, showing my ideas for the packaging, and giving details on how I developed the working mechanism.
I’m dedicating the idea to my wife Rachael, who is my best friend and an amazing support to me, she always believes in me and is an amazing encouragement to me in everything I do. I would love to be able to walk into a Lego shop with Rachael and my children Daisy and Obby, and see my design on the shelves 🙂
Seinfeld 30th Anniversary by Brent Waller (aka BrentWaller)
This LEGO Ideas project celebrates the 30th Anniversary of the beloved classic 90s comedy sitcom with an accurate recreation of Jerry’s Upper West Side Manhattan apartment using approximately 900 LEGO Pieces.
It also includes 5 minifigures including Comedian and shows namesake, Jerry Seinfeld, neurotic best friend George Costanza, friend Elaine Benes, eccentric but kind-hearted neighbor Cosmo Kramer and Jerry’s arch-nemesis, mailman and neighbor known only as “Newman”.
Though I have to say that I was a bit surprised that the either the Winter Chalet or the Legend of Zelda product ideas did not make it to the cut, I am still happy for the fan designers behind these winning projects. The LEGO Ideas Typewriter is a technically impressive piece of work, while the LEGO Home Alone and Seinfeld sets will surely hit the nostalgic sweet spots of older LEGO fans.
It’s too early to tell on when these winning product ideas will be eventually available since the LEGO Ideas design and review teams will certainly be hard at work on these three fan projects. They also have a handful of product ideas to work on as they now enter the First 2020 LEGO Ideas Review Stage with its staggering 26 qualifiers. It will surely be a busy year at LEGO Ideas HQ.
So what do you think about the LEGO Ideas Third 2019 Review Results? Are you happy about these selections? Let’s talk about it in the comments. below.
After hinting on the upcoming LEGO Ideas Third 2019 Review Results a couple of weeks ago, the LEGO Ideas Review Team has now revealed that the results for this review stage will be up in the next 24 hours. To make the announcement even more exciting for fans, LEGO Ideas Engagement Manager, Hasan Jensen, kicks off the big reveal with an equally huge raffle giveaway.
