LEGO unveils LEGO Ideas first spinning globe

The LEGO Group has revealed the LEGO Ideas The Globe. The 2585-piece set features printed names of the continents and oceans that glow in the dark so you can display and see the world at every moment. In addition, once built the set spins, a first for a LEGO globe at this scale.

The set was designed as part of the LEGO Ideas platform, a LEGO initiative that takes new ideas that have been imagined and voted for by fans and turns them into reality.

France-based LEGO fan Guillaume Roussel was responsible for creating the concept for the LEGO Ideas The Globe, having been inspired by the tales of Jules Verne. “When approaching the design, I asked myself, ‘What could be creative, educational and touch most of the world?’ And the answer was just ‘the world itself,’” explains Guillaume. 

Federico Begher, LEGO Group Head of Global Marketing for Adults, says: “What is so wonderful about this set is that, with a little imagination, it allows fans to discover the world through LEGO bricks. The globe is a symbol of dreams and aspirations of travel to come for all who are seeking a bit of adventure or for those looking to learn about our world. When reviewing Guillaume’s set we could see the passion he had for travel and adventure, but also for inspiring building fans everywhere. Our designers also relished the challenge of making this set spin.” 

The LEGO Ideas Earth Globe (21332) will be available from LEGO.com and LEGO stores globally from 1 February 2022, priced at EUR 199.99.
