All LEGO DOTS Harry Potter Sets Official Images Released

A couple of days ago, we saw the official images of the first LEGO DOTS set that tie-ins with the Harry Potter franchise. And today, we get to see the full range of LEGO DOTS Harry Potter sets comprising two additional sets that give the Wizarding World of Harry Potter a beautiful, wearable LEGO twist.

And though that it is unfortunate that the LEGO DOTS theme is about to come to an end, its is still nice to see that this theme is getting several licensed sets for LEGO Harry Potter fans to enjoy. I’m not sure if there are more LEGO DOTS sets to be revealed anytime soon before its final curtain call, but I’ll keep you posted once more information comes in.

For the meantime, let’s take a look at these LEGO DOTS Harry Potter official set images and see what we can expect from them.

As of this posting, we are waiting for these sets to be listed at But since their official images were released already in the wild, we can expect their offical reveal at LEGO’s home shopping portal anytime soon.

LEGO DOTS Hedwig Pencil Holder (41809) Revealed!

Though the LEGO DOTS theme is, unfortunately, ending, there are still some things to look forward to for the fans of the theme. As revealed earlier, we can expect a new set that tie-ins with the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – the first now being the LEGO DOTS Hedwig Pencil Holder (41809).

The reveal came by way of another LEGO building instructions entry at LEGO’s customer service portal. Details are scant as of now since this latest LEGO DOTS Hedwig set is not yet accessible via But from the looks of it, we have the iconic white owl rendered in bricks and pieces, given with a functional look.


This set is expected to clock in at 518 pieces and will retail for around 19 Euros or  $20. It s also expected to be one of the three LEGO DOTS that is dedicated to the Harry Potter licensed theme. And given that it has already made an appearance via LEGO’s website it may suggest that an official reveal might soon be on the way.


I’ll update this post once more info comes in. Thanks to Hoth Bricks for the heads-up.

LEGO DOTS To End in June 2023

In case you missed it, LEGO has decided to pull the plug on one of its relatively younger themes. As announced last week, the LEGO Group will discontinue the LEGO DOTS theme effective June this year.

The LEGO DOTS Ultimate Party Kit (41806) released this year.

This early retirement of LEGO DOTS may have been spurred by its below-average performance in the market. Since its inception in 2020, the theme has managed to develop its portfolio of more than 70 sets throughout its four-year stint.

Frankly, the news came as a surprise, considering LEGO just recently announced its Q1 2023 line-up of new LEGO DOTS sets. But as it seems, underperforming themes are eventually retired, and it’s a business decision that LEGO has to make, unfortunately.

Here’s the official statement from the LEGO Group.

Dear all,

After careful consideration, we have decided to exit the LEGO DOTS theme and integrate tile-based play into other themes within our portfolio.

January and March launches of LEGO DOTS novelties will go ahead but also be our last on this theme, with all current items from 2022 remaining active in the product line up until the end of the year.

LEGO DOTS was launched in March 2020 with the ambition to connect with kids through their passion for arts & crafts – looking at encouraging self-expression and to attract new builders to the LEGO brand. It was a completely new style of building which used brightly coloured tiles to ignite creativity with LEGO fans, in a fun and unique way.

Whilst seeing great appetite for this type of proposition and playing a key role in retaining kids in the LEGO brand, we also recognise the challenges of establishing LEGO DOTS as a long-term brand in the arts & crafts category.

We will refocus our attention on ensuring elements of tile-play live on across other areas of the business. We know there is still a huge appeal from the arts & craft community, and we want to ensure there are opportunities for kids who love the play proposition to still enjoy building in this way. We can also confirm this discontinuation will not affect our business direction on similar themes like LEGO Art and we look forward to more exciting launches in the future.

We want to thank all our LEGO DOTS fans who inspired us with their creativity!

I guess LEGO will be capitalizing on the LEGO DOTS imminent retirement as it is still expected to release its March wave of sets inspired by the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. But after that, the curtains will eventually fall on this beloved theme.


So while counting the months before we see the end of LEGO DOTS, you may want to check out which sets turned out to be popular and enjoyed by the LEGO community. Here is our top 15 list of most wanted LEGO DOTS sets (in descending order) based on data shared Brickset data. Please take note that these are affiliate links.

GWP: LEGO DOTS Pencil Holder (40561) Listed

LEGO DOTS isn’t exactly one of the first themes to come up in terms of name power and popularity. It’s still got a good following all the same. Buildable and customizable accessories rock. So, if you fancy LEGO DOTS then this product listing on LEGO Shop might be for you. Even better, you don’t have to pay for it directly since it’s listed as free (price notwithstanding). On LEGO shorthand that means a gift-with-purchase, if Brick Fanatics which found it has it right. We’re not sure what product/s you might need to buy to get it, but here it is.

40561 1

If you like a LEGO look for your study table, check out this DOTS Pencil Holder (40561). With 476 pieces one can assemble a pencil-shaped bin for your writing tools.

But it’s a GWP, so we’ll just wait until LEGO gives us the promo details, which shouldn’t take long.

LEGO DOTS Collabs with “The Sims FreePlay” in Limited Event for Themed In-Game Stuff

Around the early 2010s, EA Games took their hit life-simulation franchise “The Sims” and adapted it to the mobile market. “The Sims FreePlay” has been on for quite some time now. In fact, two of the MOS platforms it launched in have since gone defunct. That leaves iOS and Android, naturally. The latter launched “Sims FreePlay” in 2012, making it a decade old this year. In that time the game app has seen numerous update packages from EA Mobile and Firemonkeys Studios. The thing is, all of them are in-house additions unlike mobile game apps in Japan with numerous cross-franchise collaborations. That’s changing this month.

The Brick Fan tells us that EA is collaborating with – obviously – LEGO for their next “Sims FreePlay” update. Specifically, they’re partnering with the LEGO DOTS craft line to bring FreePlay gamers the “You Dot You” update. This consists of all-new DOTS-themed items for Sims in the mobile app. Eagle eyes would recognize these accessories and gear as being actual LEGO Dots sets and products. There’s also a limited-time live event running June 13-24 where “Simmers” can complete gameplay challenges to unlock in-game DOTS stuff. Message boards? Customizable bracelets? DOTS-themed fashions? They’re all in this pack.

From what the images shared on social media look, “Sims FreePlay” X LEGO DOTS looks real bright and colorful. True, it’s rather niche in going for “Sims” fans who’re also LEGO (DOTS) collectors. But being free-to-play means it’s not too costly. There’s that time limit though. If you play “Sims FreePlay” on iOS/Android/Amazon and want the DOTS goodies, you have until two Fridays from now.

Monthly In-Store LEGO Build Activities Become Online Challenges in Creativity Page

Many (many) years ago, when LEGO still released monthly Store Calendars, they might have contained dates for in-store build activities. New LEGO sets and possible GWP promos could be alternatively claimed online. But going to one’s local LEGO Store to make that month’s mini-build was a unique sort of fun. Sadly, the pandemic forced LEGO to scupper in-store activities. Eventually they even discontinued the monthly store calendars as well. It felt like the end of an era. It doesn’t have to be that way, however. LEGO found a way to revive the monthly build activities by making it available online.

That’s how Brick Fanatics tells it. has launched a new page, the Creativity Hub. Here, the in-store building activities of pre-pandemic yesteryear have returned. They’ve even increased in potential frequency, from monthly to weekly. Every week, LEGO plans to provide an online building challenge for site visitors. Several new micro-build will be introduced, their building instructions placed in downloadable PDF form. Interested participants can then build the challenges using their LEGO pieces on hand. If they photograph their creation and take it to their local LEGO Store, they’ll get something exclusive for their efforts.

For their pictures of their completed Creativity build challenge, home LEGO builders will receive one DOTS Craft Felt Sticker pack. Each contains four sheets of felt stickers that can be cut into desired shapes. And this giveaway may not be permanent if warns us “while supplies last.” But for as long as they do, builders could re-experience somewhat the enjoyment of building little LEGO things. Instead of every month, they could come every year. And now they can be accessed with a quick visit to the LEGO Shop online.

New LEGO DOTS Sets Listed for March 1 Launch

The beauty of LEGO is that it offers numerous building possibilities. These options go beyond the expected 3D building and into flat yet artistic 2D works. Two themes exploring these creative avenues are LEGO Art and LEGO DOTS. Where Art focused on using tiles to depict graphic art, DOTS went the lettering route. DOTS pieces spelled out letters and words in varying fonts and sizes, making for text and naming personalization. While not a major frontline theme, LEGO does release new sets for DOTS, particularly this year. Thanks to The Brick Fan, we know what upcoming LEGO DOTS products are due for – again – March 1.

From accessory tags on your stuff, to message boards on your wall, the latest LEGO DOTS have you covered. As per usual, dots lettering ranges from letters-per-tile to massive multi-piece shapes. It also doesn’t take a genius to know that these sets launch March 1:
