LEGO selling ‘beautiful’ £54 bouquet of roses that ‘look real’ and last all year

Shoppers have been heading to Amazon to buy an unconventional floral gift for Valentine’s Day. Instead of opting for a standard bouquet of roses for your loved ones, shoppers can now buy a bouquet that’ll last all year as they are made of LEGO. The LEGO Icons Bouquet of Roses 10328[1] is a buildable game for adults priced at GBP54.98, featuring 12 artificial rose flowers with long green stems and four baby’s breath springs.

Its product description reads: “Let creativity bloom with this beautiful bouquet of a dozen red roses and baby’s-breath foliage – a timeless gift from the LEGO Botanical Collection.” Over 4,000 of the LEGO Icons Bouquet of Roses[2] have been purchased in the past month and from a glance, they could easily be mistaken for real roses. The plastic bouquet has a customer rating of 4.6 stars out of five on Amazon.

In the reviews, Selim wrote: “Growing up my mother would always buy me and my brothers lego. Now thanks to these new styles of lego I had the chance to buy her a lego gift for the first time. I mean I think it’s the perfect gift for any lady who has a creative sense.

The only downside i would say is that it’s not enough to fill a vase so im gonna have to buy another lego flower.” A second shopper said: “I really don’t regret my purchase! Roses are my favorite flowers and this bouquet is more beautiful than life with this bright red!

Very nice decorative element and that made people envious! It could make a great Valentine’s Day gift.”

Jolies commented: “Nothing to say but they are beautiful. Now I want the roses but pink,” while Giuli_Giuls said: “The bouquets of flowers are very beautiful and the roses are no exception… beautiful and with attention to detail.

Lego doesn’t miss a beat!” However, Meiko Waldow wrote: “Not recommended because many parts are simply not included.” Another said that when they recieved the box, it had “dents everywhere”. On LEGO’s own website[3], the bouquet[4] is priced at GBP54.99, so there isn’t much difference in price.

However, if you’re looking to order them for Valentine’s Day, the earliest it can be shipped is February 29. Asda[5] is also selling the LEGO Icons Bouquet of Roses[6] for GBP45, with delivery starting at GBP3.50. However if roses aren’t really your style, Amazon also sells the Flowers Bouquet Building Set[7] which features eucalyptus, sunflowers, lavender, red roses, lilies, baby’s breath, tulips, plum blossoms, and carnations, for just GBP29.99, down from GBP32.59 (an eight per cent saving).

Or if you’re after something a little more subtle, the online retailer also sells the LEGO Cherry Blossoms, Artificial Faux Flowers Set –[8] one of the site’s choices – for GBP12.99.
