After a series of teasers and numerous speculations, LEGO has at long last officially revealed their latest offering: the much-awaited LEGO Animal Crossing sets, inspired by Nintendo’s widely beloved video game series. The enchanting universe of Animal Crossing, which has captured the hearts of countless players, is now making its debut in the form of LEGO bricks, together with other LEGO Nintendo sets.
LEGO Animal Crossing Features Several Scenes and Beloved Characters that Fans Will Surely Adore
In partnership with Nintendo, LEGO has created five unique sets that allow builders to dive headfirst into the charming world of the beloved video game franchise. These sets open up the possibility of crafting various stories within their brick-constructed landscapes.
If you recall, back in 2021, LEGO’s first partnership with Animal Crossing came with a surprising theme. The now-discontinued LEGO Vidiyo characters made an appearance in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons video game. And two years since then, we will be seeing actual LEGO Animal Crossing sets rolled-out during the Q1 of 2024.
This first wave of LEGO Animal Crossing sets has been designed for easy assembly for younger LEGO fans while offering a high degree of customization that other builders and collectors will enjoy.
For example, you can effortlessly switch elements between buildings, even the window frames. Every set can be mixed and matched, giving builders the freedom to curate their own distinct worlds and settings. Plus of course, the lovely minifigures that go with them. These could easily pass as a LEGO Collectible Minifigure series in my opinion.
The new range comprises the following sets:
Julian’s Birthday Bash
In this set, builders can join Julian in a delightful birthday celebration. They can partake in cupcake-sharing and present-opening festivities, adding a personal touch to the party.
Bunnie’s Outdoor Adventures
LEGO Animal Crossing Bunnie’s Outdoor Activities set offers the chance to role-play setting up a tent, roasting marshmallows, and using the vaulting pole to leap across the water, all while grabbing tools reminiscent of the video game series.
Kapp’n’s Island Boat Tour
LEGO and Animal Crossing fans are in for a treat with the LEGO Animal Crossing Kapp’n’s Island Boat Tour. This brick-built adventure allows you to board the boat with Kapp’n and Marshal, embark on a quest for coconuts and bamboo, discover the local wildlife, such as hermit crabs and fish, or simply relax by the fire.
Isabelle’s House Visit
Young LEGO builders can let their creativity shine by assisting Isabelle and Fauna in customizing Fauna’s house. With the LEGO Animal Crossing Isabelle’s House Visit, builders can customize the set by including a plethora of activities like unwrapping balloon presents, crafting tools, and harvesting fruits and flowers.
Nook’s Cranny & Rosies House
This set features two famous landmarks in the Animal Crossing video game. You can join in shopping sprees at Nook’s Cranny shop or savor freshly baked goodies at Rosie’s house.
