LEGO launches fully functional wind turbine set

By on Tuesday, October 9, 2018

Toy company Lego has launched a new kit enabling kids (and adults) to build a fully-functional, three-foot wind turbine complete with adjustable blades and even aircraft hazard lights.

Made in partnership with energy company Vestas, the 826-piece structure also comes with a miniature cottage, trees, servicemen Minifigs, and a dog.

The spruce trees are no longer made of oil-based plastic – but from a material sourced from sugarcane.

Tim Brooks, Vice President of Environmental Responsibility for LEGO, told TBB that the company is “striving to make a positive impact on the environment and is committed to climate action and to use sustainable materials in products and packaging.”

The Toy Turbine is bringing that ambition to life by celebrating renewable energy.

Available directly from shops and LEGO.com from  23rd of November 2018.
