January 2021 LEGO News Roundup

Another month, another roundup of the latest LEGO news at Brick Architect, and from around the web!

With the new year nearly upon us, let’s look back on the most interesting LEGO news this month…

This month at Brick Architect:

Articles from around the web

We can’t include every article in the past month, so here are a few of my favorites…

  • Designer Video (4:28) for the new #10280 Flower Bouquet set.
    It was interesting to learn that this set was inspired by an apprentice at LEGO who started decoratign the worsplace with LEGO floral bouquets.
  • Designer Video (5:11) for the new #10281 Bonsai Tree set.
    One of the first things that the designer built when joining LEGO was a large Bonsai tree for the Ninjago area of the workplace. He kept making smaller ones for the desks of colleagues, and eventually the idea grew into an official set. (Fun sense of houmor in the video, too!)
  • The history of LEGO DUPLO (5:40) shows how DUPLO was not The LEGO Group’s first product for toddlers, and how DUPLO has evolved to include more storytelling opportunities for young kids.

    The link for the New Elementary article about the 2×2 Wedge is actually the one for dubious connections.
