The easter seasonal sets have been a mixed bag the last couple of years.
Certainly one of the nicer builds was last years vignette 40237 Easter Egg Hunt.
Today is Valentine’s Day and therefore a perfect opportunity to have a look at the second Seasonal set celebrating Valentine’s Day.
While 40187 Flower Display brought us a brick-built flower, 40207 Valentine’s Bee introduces the BrickHeadz theme to the Seasonal lineup. Given the general cuteness of BrickHeadz I believe that they are very well suited for Seasonal sets.
While plants are part of nearly every city scene, large scale brick-built flowers are rather rare. So I was rather pleased to see that this year Lego is presenting us with two such sets 40187 Flower Display and 30404 Friendship Flower.
40187 Flower Display is part of this years Valentine’s Day Seasonal lineup. I ordered it right away along with 40270 Valentine’s Bee when they became available early this year. A wise decision as Lego is out of stock for both sets already.
Seasonal sets are usually small (apart from the Winter Village line) and vary a lot in their popularity. This might be due to the fact that not every seasonal theme enjoys the same popularity. However another fact is certainly the type of set produced.
While most sets depict a certain scene with multiple small builds (christmas tree with presents), some sets build an specific object that is symbolic for that particular season (easter bunny). 40093 Snowman is a nice example of the latter and captures the winter season and the fun snow can bring perfectly with this cute brick-built figure.
