We’re not really sure why the Lego Icons Bird of Paradise is priced at $99.99/£89.99 – literally double the price of every other set in the Lego Botanical Collection. We can only imagine it’s due to the sheer number of giant, sculpted Lego pieces required for its large, lush green leaves. It’s an eye-catching model, there’s no denying it, and we had a lot of fun putting it together too. However, it doesn’t really stand out enough to justify its high price.

However, if you’re a fan of Lego’s Botanicals series – a sub-series that now falls under the new Icons theme – you probably won’t want to miss the Bird of Paradise. You won’t be disappointed – we certainly aren’t – but we’re not as impressed as we’ve been by other sets in the range, most notably the Lego Icons Orchid.

  • A straightforward assembly with easy-to-follow instructions
