Lego puts travelling back on the map

Are you excited to get back out there and explore the world? Now you can pin your next travel destination on a brand new Lego World Map!

After months and months of being confined by the walls of our house the time has come to break down borders and explore the world again. In anticipation globetrotters like us can map out their next explorations on a different sort of map: The new Lego Art World Map.

The new Lego Art World Map can be reimagined in a number of different ways to express your own personality and travel memories or wishes. Customisable brick-built pins can be placed to mark out the destinations you already visited or highlight those still on your bucket list, giving this masterpiece a personal twist. 

The set’s building instructions show how the 40 interconnecting base plates are divided into three sections for the build that can be arranged in one of three different ways, allowing you to place your favourite part of the world in the centre of your map. 

The oceans on this 25.5 in. (65cm) high and 40.5 in. (104 cm) wide masterpiece can also be tailored to be a true expression of yours style. The tiles can be arranged in a manner inspired by bathymetric mapping of the ocean floor by following the building instructions, or you can express yourself more freely and creatively by arranging the tiles as you wish and explore different patterns and motifs instead. 

The new Lego Art set offers a challenging and immersive building experience to help you relax and recharge as you reminisce about holiday memories of the past or start planning future excursions. An accompanying soundtrack featuring stories from travel experts has been curated to immerse yourself in your passion for exploration as you build. The soundtrack features travellers’ tales from bloggers and adventurers including Torbjørn C. Pedersen, the first person to visit every country in the world in one unbroken journey without flying, and blogger Syazwani Baumgartner who has experienced some of the most remote places on the planet.

The new set comes with a coffee-table style instruction booklet, a white brick-built frame and two hanging elements to make the map easy to display, take down and rebuild whenever the mood strikes.  

This new addition to the Lego Art collection contains the most pieces ever included in a set in the Lego Group’s history, with its 11,695 elements allowing you to immerse yourself in creating a stunning representation of the earth from 2D Lego tiles. 

The Lego Art World Map is available from Lego.com and Lego Stores globally and will become available from other retailers globally from 1st August 2021.
