A grand piano is on the wish-list of many music lovers, but the real thing can be pretty expensive and take up a lot of room in the house. However, LEGO collectors now have the chance to build a little piano of their own thanks to the IDEAS Grand Piano Lego Set 21323. As a part of the IDEAS range, you know that this was created by a designer with a keen interest in the subject. As a result, this model has lots of brilliant details and working parts to create the ideal replica in miniature.
There is a lot of detail to this model with a classic shape to the piano. There are nice curves in all the right places, foot pedals and even tiny lion-claw feet for character. Builders can add the lid, complete with a hinge and prop to expose all the hammers. There is also a music stand, complete with sheet music, and an adjustable stool with a padded effect. The finished piece is an attractive addition to any collection. But, this is much more than a static model.
What makes this model so special is that it is actually a musical instrument.
There are lots of advanced LEGO sets out there that make great use of Powered Up components for a more interactive experience. However, this piano model takes things a little further. Each key on this miniature instrument is connected to its own hammer. Without the electronic elements, this is just a fun moving part. With the app and components, you can create music. The result is something that keen musicians will love to play with. The app has an auto-play mode where you can watch your piano play songs or the self-play mode where you use the keys yourself. However, you do need to make sure that the piano is in full working order first.
This is where this model earns its 18+ rating as a LEGO set for adults.
Teens and kids aren’t going to have the patience to connect all the right pieces in the right order. But, adults with an eye for this sort of thing will love the challenge. With more than 3000 pieces in this set, there are lots of fine details in this small piano. But, it is worth the effort to get it all together. The end result with the IDEAS Grand Piano Lego Set 21323 is a stylish miniature with a surprising amount of entertainment value.
