Face it. Your weekends won’t always be filled with outrageous Hangover-tier shenanigans. Some evenings will inevitably be quieter than others, which you’ll only relish more and more as time goes on. And once you discover you’ve binge-watched all that there is to binge watch, exhausted every possible board game, or grown tiresome of doom scrolling – why not give yourself an easy DIY project like the 2,585-piece LEGO Globe set?

As far as LEGO undertaking goes, this is the perfect middle ground. Challenging enough to keep you stimulated, but not to the point of potentially laborious, i.e. the monstrous 11,695-piece LEGO World Map (the largest set to date), or the recently unveiled 9,090-Piece LEGO Titanic kit (the second-largest set to date).

The LEGO Globe set was initially pitched to the LEGO Ideas division by 23-year-old Guillaume Roussel (AKA Disneybrick55), who first submitted the Jules Verne-inspired concept back in early 2020. Featuring customisable vintage bricks, printed names of continents, as well as glow-in-the-dark components, once assembled, it serves as a fully-functional centrepiece in any given room.

“When approaching the design, I asked myself ‘What could be creative, educational, and touch most of the world?’ And the answer was just: the world itself,” explains Guillaume Roussel

“What is so wonderful about this set is that, with a little imagination, it allows fans to discover the world through LEGO bricks,” adds Federico Begher, LEGO Head of Global Marketing (Adults).

“The globe is a symbol of dreams and aspirations of travel to come for all who are seeking a bit of adventure or for those looking to learn about our world. When reviewing Guillaume’s set, we could see the passion he had for travel and adventure, but also for inspiring building fans everywhere. Our designers also relished the challenge of making this set spin.”   

The LEGO Globe set currently retails for $319.99 and will officially become available for purchase on February 1st of 2022.
