LEGO® Ideas – The Insect Collection
Bring extraordinary creatures to life with these realistic, life-size display models of three beautiful insects. Fully poseable and created with captivating details, each display tells a story about the biome – or eco-system – the insects inhabit. Separate building instructions are included for each model, so you can build solo or with others.
About the PlaylistWe asked award-winning Foley artist Sanaa Kelley to help us bring to life a playlist inspired by the three extraordinary insects from the new set. An expert in creating sound effects out of everyday items, Sanaa has recreated each insect’s own unique sounds in nature using the iconic LEGO® brick.
Listen to our ‘Green Noise’ playlist capturing the sounds of nature as you build!
