Best to Celebrate the Year of the Rabbit: Lunar New Year Parade


Planning to celebrate the Lunar New Year or know someone who is? If so, you won't want to miss this set.

2023 is the Year of the Rabbit, so it makes sense that the LEGO Lunar New Year Parade set prominently features an adorable white rabbit right at the front.

The Lunar New Year Parade releases on January 10 and includes three parade floats that connect to celebrate the Year of the Rabbit.

Best for Gryffindors: Gryffindor House Banner


LEGO has plenty of sets that celebrate everyone's favorite wizard, but none of them are quite like the LEGO Gryffindor House Banner. While this LEGO set is affordable, it comes with plenty of features and personality.

At 285 pieces, LEGO recommends this set for builders aged nine and up. With the Gryffindor House Banner, you can show your house pride. The completed set has a tile with the Gryffindor house crest and a hanger so that you can display it on the wall.

Best Way to Bring Home a Bugatti: Bugatti Bolide


Most of us will never have a Bugatti in our garages, but you can have one on a table or a shelf.

Or rather, you can have a model of one when you pick up the LEGO Bugatti Bolide when it comes out on January 1. LEGO suggests this 905-piece set for builders aged nine and up as a great way to bring the joy of racing home. This Bugatti set comes from the LEGO Technic line, so you can be confident that the finished model will favor both form and function.

The yellow and black car features a head-turning design and plenty of working functions like the scissor doors and the W16 engine and steering.

Best for Enhancing Your LEGO Bouquet: Daffodils


LEGO has recently been drawing inspiration from nature with several sets that allow you to build everything from floral bouquets to succulents. The latest botanical edition is the LEGO Daffodils set.

Two of them are yellow and two are white. Recommended for builders aged 18 and up, the set includes 216 pieces and works with other LEGO sets, including the Roses, Tulips, and Sunflower sets. When completed, each daffodil is more than 11 inches tall.

Best from the New Avatar Movie: Payakan the Tulkun & Crabsuit


Since we've been gifted with the sequel to Avatar, it's only logical that LEGO would also give us the gift of Avatar sets.

Of the different available options, the LEGO Payakan the Tulkun & Crabsuit set is arguably the most enticing. This 761-piece set comes with so many components that you can enjoy once it's completed. There's the posable tulkun and the transformable crabsuit model that lets you take it from a submarine to a walking vehicle.
