The first LEGO flower shop in the world has just opened in the Netherlands

Brick bouquet anyone? πŸ’

Strolling along Dutch streets, you’re often greeted with a sweet floral scent. Now, you have to thank not just the markets but also the world’s first LEGO florists, made especially for adults.

LEGO’s botanical collection, including rose and wildflower bunches for around €59.99 each, has been delighting kids and adults alike for years now.

‘The Botanical’ in Utrecht is the first pop-up shop in the world selling their lifelike bouquets, the AD reports.

Scan for a bunch

If you fancy some spontaneous sunflowers or last-minute lilies, you won’t be cycling home with a bouquet right away.

To buy the flowers, customers first scan a QR code, which takes them to Bol’s online store to order.

Thomas Feuerstacke from Bol.com, wants people to enjoy their purchase in anticipation and save them walking through the city with a package.

But isn’t balancing bouquets while biking the cutest sight in the Netherlands? 🀭🚲

Big kids

These plastic petals are intended for a “more mature audience”, adds Vincent Andries from LEGO.

Think floral playground: you can take in a variety of LEGO creations, snap some special flowery pics and even get building there yourself. πŸ‘·β€β™€οΈ

In 2022, the toy company found 86% of adults said playing with LEGO helped them relax after work and 89% said it kept them mentally sharp.

  1. The Botanical Lego is just wonderful. Oh ! I am waiting to visit the Netherlands.
    As a senior citizen, I would love to arrange these Legos in the colder months of the year.
