Five new sets are aiming to ‘spark creativity and imaginative play’ for children aged four and above.
The LEGO Group has revealed a new Mickey and Friends range with Disney – with the five sets aiming to ‘spark creativity and imaginative play’ for children from the age of four.
Each set comes with instructions for children who are just learning to read and Starter Brick elements such as a big car or plane chassis to kickstart the building process.
The instructions also feature short build-and-play loops to develop confidence and ensure a great building experience that will boost their problem-solving, role-play and concentration skills and encourage resilience while they play.
“I loved Disney Mickey Mouse, Disney Minnie Mouse and all of their friends when I was younger so designing these sets felt very nostalgic,” commented James Stephenson, senior designer at The LEGO Group. “We hope the new LEGO Disney Mickey and Friends range will offer great fun and role-playing opportunities to help young children learn about friendship, communication and resilience with characters they know and love.
“With these five new sets that explore firefighting, flying, trips to a farm, space exploration and shopkeeping, we aim to inspire young children and introduce them to LEGO building whatever their interests.”
The sets begin with LEGO Disney Mickey and Friends Mickey Mouse’s Propeller Plane (59-piece) and LEGO Disney Mickey and Friends Mickey Mouse & Minnie Mouse’s Space Rocket (88-piece), moving up to LEGO Disney Mickey and Friends Minnie Mouse’s Ice Cream Shop (100-piece), LEGO Disney Mickey and Friends Mickey Mouse & Donald Duck’s Farm (118-piece) and LEGO Disney Mickey & Friends Fire Truck & Station (144-piece).
The sets will be available globally from 1 June.
