Billund, May 14th, 2021: Today, the LEGO Group revealed a new Mickey and Friends range with Disney, introducing five exciting sets to spark creativity and imaginative play for young children aged 4 and over.
Each set comes with instructions for children who are just learning to read and Starter Brick elements such as a big car or plane chassis to kickstart the building process. The instructions also feature short build-and-play loops to develop confidence and ensure a great building experience that will boost their problem-solving, role-play and concentration skills and encourage resilience while they play.
“I loved Disney Mickey Mouse, Disney Minnie Mouse and all of their friends when I was younger so designing these sets felt very nostalgic. We hope the new LEGO® Disney Mickey and Friends range will offer great fun and role-playing opportunities to help young children learn about friendship, communication and resilience with characters they know and love. With these five new sets that explore firefighting, flying, trips to a farm, space exploration and shopkeeping, we aim to inspire young children and introduce them to LEGO building whatever their interests,” says James Stephenson, Senior Designer at the LEGO Group.
