The fan-created LEGO Ideas series always brings us some interesting, creative concepts. The new IDEAS Tree House 75810 Lego Set answers the question of what sort of tree house we could build if resources, time and money were no obstacle. The result is a grand design that brings together lots of different interior and exterior elements, all within the beautiful tree itself. The combination of the bricks, extra parts and the mini-figure characters mean that this has potential not just as a static collector’s piece but also as a Lego set for families.
Players can build a complex structure in a tree that changes with the seasons
There are three main rooms and two balcony areas within this tall tree, with a staircase down to the picnic area on the ground. The main bedroom for the mum and dad minifigures has a bed and lots of important tools for their adventures. This includes a compass, clock and a winch to haul up items from the ground. The kids’ room has bunk beds, a treasure map and lots of other fun items. There is also a bathroom and plenty of external elements like the plants and stream. There is even a friendly bird to pay them all a visit.
One of the most interesting features in this set is actually the tree itself. There are two reasons for this. First of all, builders can adapt the tree with the seasons. There are more than 180 botanical pieces alone and they come in a bring spring-time green or the oranges and yellows of autumn. This versatility adds more authenticity to the stories over the year. The other reason is that these pieces are made from a plant-based polyethylene – which shows a more environmental side to this LEGO set. The aim is that all LEGO sets will contain sustainable materials by 2030.
This build is one for the whole family
Everyone can take part in the build of this set. The 16+ rating means that kids will need adult supervision to get all of those 3036 pieces in place. But, there is so much to build that it is a fun project that never gets boring. Each builder can also relate to a different room and part of the story. Imagine yourself in that dream tree house and enjoy the escapism of the IDEAS Tree House 75810 Lego Set.
